Stick on Superpowers for Every Family Member

You’ve been there: long nights trying to get your child to sleep, hours spent calming tantrums, and the relentless quest for a sunscreen or bug repellent your kids won't fuss about. Welcome to the world of NATPAT—your destination for natural, potent, and hassle-free solutions to life's everyday parenting obstacles. But like any smart parent, you might be wondering: Do NATPAT patches actually work? Are they backed by science, or is it just another marketing gimmick? 

You've come to the right place for answers. Today, we’re unveiling the science that underpins the efficacy and trustworthiness of NATPAT patches. This is your definitive guide for peace of mind, designed to help you make empowered choices for your family's well-being.

WHY TRUST IS A MUST: SETTING THE STAGE

Let's get right to it—scepticism is a healthy attribute, especially when it comes to products designed for your little ones. You need the peace of mind that comes from trusting a product wholeheartedly, and for that, understanding the science behind it is crucial.  At NATPAT, we are committed to providing transparent, evidence-based information about how our patches are engineered to offer both playful problem-solving and scientifically-grounded solutions.

From natural essential oils to cutting-edge slow-release technology, every detail of NATPAT patches is meticulously planned to ensure safety, avoid allergies, and deliver measurable results. Now, let's delve into the mechanics and molecules that make our patches truly exceptional.

When it comes to protecting our little ones from pesky mosquitoes, traditional sprays and lotions often miss the mark. They're messy, have a strong odor, and, let's face it, children aren't always cooperative when it's time to apply. This is why NATPAT’s BuzzPatch mosquito repellent patches are a game-changer. But how do they work? Unlike sprays that act as a barrier, BuzzPatch patches employ a clever trick—they mask the carbon dioxide we emit when we breathe. Mosquitoes are drawn to carbon dioxide, so by effectively disguising it, the patches make you and your children less attractive to these bloodsucking insects.

Skeptic about the efficacy? Poseidon Sciences R&D has the data to back up the BuzzPatch's stellar performance. In 2021, their laboratory tests compared
BuzzPatch with other commonly available repellents and found that BuzzPatch stickers were scientifically proven to provide 16% better protection than the next best alternatives. Fast forward to May 2023, a field test study in the Philippine jungle further solidified these findings. A total of 40 volunteers, ranging from 18 to 53 years old, participated in the study comparing BuzzPatch patches, other repellent patches, and OFF Family Care spray. The results spoke volumes—while other patches provided protection for just 6.3 minutes and OFF
spray lasted 28.8 minutes, BuzzPatch triumphed with an astonishing 43.6 minutes of effective mosquito protection. So when it comes to reliable, longer-lasting protection against mosquitoes, science shows that BuzzPatch is a cut above the rest. That’s science you can count on.

For parents navigating the complexities of bedtime routines, the NATPAT SleepyPatch offers a revolutionary yet natural way to encourage a restful night's sleep for both you and your child. Infused with 100% pure lavender essential oils,SleepyPatch takes advantage of the olfactory system to produce its soothing effects. When the aromatic molecules are inhaled, they meet specialized nerve cells in our nose called olfactory cells. These cells uniquely identify the aroma of lavender and send signals to the brain's limbic system, our center for emotions and instincts. The result? A more natural sedative effect that aids in relaxation and deep sleep.

You don’t have to just take our word for it—the science corroborates the calming properties of lavender. Various studies across different populations, including adults, children, and even elderly individuals, consistently highlight lavender's effectiveness as a sedative. For instance, a study with 40 adults conducted by the University of Miami found that the lavender group exhibited increased beta power on EEG activity, indicative of increased drowsiness, improved mood, and enhanced performance on math computations. Another study from 2005 showed that lavender increased the percentage of deep or slow-wave sleep in both men and women. Additionally, lavender had gender-specific effects, increasing stage 2 sleep and decreasing rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep and wake latency in women, with opposite effects observed in men. Whether it’s aiding with sleep quality or mood improvement, SleepyPatch, with its lavender infusion, provides a scientifically-backed, safe, and non-addictive solution to help you tackle bedtime challenges.

NATPAT's ZenPatch mood-calming stickers are primarily infused with the essential oil of sweet orange, backed by an array of scientific studies that demonstrate its anxiolytic effects. Randomized, double-blinded trials involving a diverse range of participants—ranging from children in dental settings to laboring women—have consistently shown the calming effects of sweet orange essential oil when inhaled. Notably, a study involving children undergoing dental extractions found that those exposed to the scent of sweet orange had a more relaxed experience with no significant change in the duration of anesthesia or complication rates. Furthermore, research conducted with 72 adult dental patients revealed that exposure to the ambient scent of sweet orange in the waiting room led to lower levels of state anxiety and an elevated sense of calmness, particularly among women. In essence,ZenPatch employs the proven calming and mood-enhancing properties of sweet orange essential oil to help people manage stress and anxiety in various settings.

FocusPatch by NATPAT offers a playful solution for enhancing focus and cognitive function, thanks to its key ingredient: peppermint essential oil. Various scientific studies lend credibility to peppermint's effectiveness in promoting mental alertness and improving cognitive performance. For example, a study conducted at the University of Cincinnati found that subjects who inhaled peppermint fragrance demonstrated improved vigilance and focus during a sustained attention task, compared to those who did not (Warm et al., 1991).

Another study, involving 26 healthy subjects, revealed that exposure to peppermint oil led to significant improvements in memory retention, typing speed, and overall cognitive performance (Barker et al., 2003). Additionally, peppermint aroma has been shown to have a stimulating effect even during sleep, as demonstrated in a study that recorded various behavioral and autonomic responses in subjects exposed to peppermint odor during stage 2 sleep (Badia et al., 1990). Furthermore, peppermint oil has been found to increase vigor while reducing fatigue in physical tasks, adding to its profile as a comprehensive cognitive and physical enhancer (Raudenbush et al., 2002).
