The anti-mosquito material employs a unique structure. Millions of microscopic capsules are embedded in the surface of the material in a way which is resistant to approximately ten washing cycles. When compressed by the weight of the body these capsules open to release a lemon-grass scented substance which acts as a mosquito repellent. The dermatological proprieties of this substance have been laboratory tested to ensure that it is safe, non-toxic and anti-allergenic. This material provides protection not just from mosquitoes but also many other types of insects as well as from mites.
