Juno clothing is treated with the EPA-registered synthetic insecticide Permethrin during the manufacturing process. The treatment process uses Insect Shield® Repellent Technology that binds it to the fabric fibers of each Juno garment so tightly that it will repel insects through 70 washes.
Our clothing is specifically designed to be worn by moms and moms-to-be, as well as by those who are nursing. Our clothing is approved for wear for adults and children, as Permethrin poses no health risks for either pregnant or non-pregnant individuals. Permethrin has been successfully used in the United States as an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered product since 1979. It is used in lice shampoos for children, flea dips for dogs, and other products, many of which are regulated by the FDA.
Our partnering technology, Insect Shield®, is EPA-registered and has been proven to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, fleas and midges (no-see-ums). The EPA requires extensive effectiveness data to prove a product’s ability to repel insects. Many species and varieties of these insects have been tested, including those that can carry dangerous diseases.
Juno clothing does not prevent disease but is proven effective in repelling insects that carry diseases.
Juno clothing is odorless and the material looks and feels the same as normal clothing.
Zika virus is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito (Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus). Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause a serious birth defect called microcephaly and other severe brain defects. Other problems have been detected among fetuses and infants infected with Zika virus before birth, such as defects of the eye, hearing deficits, and impaired growth. There have also been increased reports of Guillain-Barré syndrome, an uncommon sickness of the nervous system, in areas affected by Zika.
Juno clothing is proven effective in repelling the mosquitos that carry the Zika virus.
The repellency of Juno apparel is proven to last through 70 washes, which is the expected lifetime of each of our garments. Our clothing also has a long shelf life; Juno garments can be stored for up to 10 years with no loss of repellent effectiveness.
We strongly advise against dry cleaning, as the processes involved will remove the insect-repellent properties of the clothing.
Juno apparel places insect repellency near your skin, rather than on it, and the protection is completely invisible. The repellency is also long-lasting, does not wash off when in contact with rain, and requires no reapplication to be effective. While Juno apparel reduces the need for insect-repellent sprays or lotions, they can be used together for protection.
Normal home laundering is recommended for Juno clothing. Our clothing can be bleached, starched, pressed and ironed without effecting repellent quality. Juno apparel should not be dry-cleaned, however, as the dry cleaning process removes the repellent.
