Mosquite is a new type of fabric softener containing anti-mosquito component. This softener uses pyrethrum flower extraction to prevent Zica virus in an eco-friendly way. We have seen a lot of people suffering from Zica virus. Zica virus mostly occurs in South American region. So, we tried to make the softener from pyrethrum flower which is grown in this region and contains anti-mosquito component. Pyrethrin, a constituent of pyrethrum flower, has a strong insecticidal effect on mosquitoes. So we decided to make the fabric softener from this ingredient, and by laundering clothes, permeated pyrethrum smell will get rid of mosquitoes.
