Buzz Off – Essentials to Prevent Insect & Mosquito Bites

With the rise of Zika and dengue fever cases and the year-round tropical humidity, Malaysia is a fertile ground for insects, bugs and mosquitoes. While outdoor activities and exploring the nature with kids promote bonding and a love for nature, it is essential to be prepared when going out.

Among the things we can do to prevent insect and mosquito bites during outings include:

  • Wear long sleeves shirts, long pants and hat. Tuck in your pants and wear closed shoes if possible. High-tech athletic apparel and clothing that offers sun protection often have sufficiently tight weave to block bites.
  • Choose light-coloured clothing. Mosquitoes are thought to be attracted to warm bodies, so staying cool is one way to avoid bites.
  • Pick a breezy spot for your outing.
  • Avoid standing water such as lakes and swamps as they are mosquito and insect havens, especially during hot months.
  • Avoid peak mosquito hours when the sun rises and sets.
  • Plug in fans directed at the lower half of your body as mosquitoes tend to fly very close to the ground to avoid wind.
  • Use a combination of mosquito-repelling essential oils such as lemon eucalyptus, citronella, thyme, geranium and lavender in the diffuser for use in the patio or indoors.
  • Sleep with a net over your bed, especially if there’s a dengue fever case in your residential area. For babies, use a netting with an elastic edge for a tight fit.
  • Don’t waste money on an electric-hanging bug “zapper.” These have been shown to kill many bugs very effectively but generally the bugs killed are the non-harmful ones.
  • Don’t let water stand near your home or campsite. It’s easy to unintentionally create habitats for mosquitoes to live and breed in. For instance, a kiddy pool left out in the summer sun for several days can soon become a hotbed for mosquitoes. Get rid of any standing water around your home or campsite. If you have a pool, cover it when it’s not in use and treat the water with chemical additives like chlorine according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Water can also accumulate in discarded tires or industrial containers, construction ditches or trenches, natural low points on a piece of property and clogged storm drains.

Safer Skincare For Children

It smells nice. It feels good on your child’s skin. And most of your friends are using it on their kids too. But is it the healthiest and safest choice?

When it comes to getting shampoos, lotions, and other personal care products for your children – or giving them guidance on making the right choice – it’s not always easy. The presence of chemicals like phthalates, parabens, and formaldehyde found in many skincare products can be detrimental when used in the long term.

Unlike adults, babies’ skin is thinner, more fragile and sensitive. It is also less resistant to bacteria and harmful substances in the environment, making it easily irritated. From mums to mums, here’s what we look for when choosing a skincare product for our little ones:

  1. Read the label – Investigate the product. Try to understand what goes into the bottle. The more ingredients you can pronounce, the better it is. If you see words with parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petroleum, fragrances and the likes, consider something else. Most importantly, read up the brand you’re buying from and make sure it’s a trusted company.
  1. Shop at specialty stores – Most of the healthier, safer range of products are available in specialty stores.
  2. Rate your products – Visit the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database and type in your product. You’ll discover the rating for the hazard level of that brand. This will serve as a good starting point as to which of your current products may not be completely safe.

Always avoid these ingredients for children and when possible, for adults too:

  • Fragrance – Many fragrance ingredients can trigger allergies and asthma; some linked to cancer and neurotoxicity and hormone disruption.
  • Fluoride – Stains teeth and neurotoxic when swallowed.
  • Ceteareth & PEG compounds (e.g. PEG -60) – Used in some cosmetic cream bases and can be contaminated with impurities, e.g. 1,4-dioxane, which may cause cancer.
  • Triethanolamine (TEA) – Allergen that forms cancer-causing chemicals.
  • Benzyl & Isopropyl Alcohol and Methylchloroisothiazolinone & Methylisothiazolinone – Irritant/allergen and neurotoxicity concerns
  • Iodopropynylbutylcarbamate – Chemically similar to neurotoxic pesticides
  • DEA-related ingredients – Used in some creamy and foaming products, such as moisturizers and shampoos. Can react to form nitrosamines, which may cause cancer.
  • Petrolatum – Used in some hair products for shine and as a moisture barrier in some lip balms, lip sticks and moisturizers. Can be contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which may cause cancer.
  • Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives – Used in a variety of cosmetics. Slowly release small amounts of formaldehyde, which causes cancer.
  • Siloxanes – Used in a variety of cosmetics to soften, smooth and moisten. Suspected endocrine disrupter and reproductive toxicant (cyclotetrasiloxane).
  • Sodium laureth (or lauryl) sulfate – Used in some foaming cosmetics, such as shampoos, cleansers and bubble bath. Can be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, which may cause cancer.
