Scientifically Proven – Breakthrough All-In-One Treatment for Insect Bites.

£8.99 (5ml fast-drying rollerball)

One sure way to put you in a bad mood on holiday is the relentless itching and discomfort caused by insect bites; never mind how unsightly they can appear when the aim is to look sun-kissed and glowing. 80% of us are susceptible to bites during the warmer months. We find ourselves desperately trying to relieve the symptoms using traditional over-the-counter remedies that can be frustratingly ineffective or extremely temporary. In fact, a study published in the Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin cites how experts claim over-the-counter remedies for insect bites are not proven to work. Now an internationally acclaimed skin biologist, working alongside a leading plastic surgeon, has developed the only scientifically proven formula for the treatment of bites. What’s more, it is natural… The key actives are green tea and chilli!

Solution for Bites™ is the latest in the Science of Skin family (, joining breakthrough treatments, such as Solution for Scars™ and Solution for Stretch Marks™. Harnessing the very best that nature and science can offer, world-renowned skin biologist Dr Ardeshir Bayat, alongside plastic surgeon Mr Douglas McGeorge, have spent several years looking for solutions that, unlike many over-the-counter products on the market, are scientifically proven to work. This has led them to identifying and harnessing the unique properties of a particular active extracts found within the natural compounds of green tea. Research had never been conducted solely on these specific extracts (although green tea as a whole can be a common ingredient in health products). Through painstaking studies they were able to prove the active ingredients have a direct effect on the skin’s natural inflammatory response, leading to a smoother healing process.

A handy pocket-sized, fast-drying roll-on treatment, Solution for Bites™ is suitable from 2years upwards and is fast drying and fragrance free. Designed to be applied once a bite appears, the active agents immediately work on the skin’s response to the bite:

The actives in the chilli pepper (capsicum) offer a numbing sensation to the initial tingling that occurs. This natural ingredient also offers additional benefits with its powerful antioxidants
The active green tea extract immediately gets to work on the skin’s natural inflammatory response, reducing the histamine release, combatting irritation and redness offering effective relief. This breaks the cycle of picking and scratching which consequently breaks the skin and can lead to more discomfort and possible infection.

The inclusion of marine plankton provides an anti-bacterial agent as well as cell renewal properties. It adds hydration and helps reactivate the skin’s natural defences, encouraging a smoother skin texture.
The added inclusion of aloe vera gives a cooling sensation and additional soothing as the skin heals.

As an international expert in Keloid scarring (an invasive, aggressive and recurrent scar type) and one of the most published clinician scientists worldwide on the topic of wound healing in human skin, Dr Ardeshir Bayat wanted to find a solution that combined the best that science and nature could offer. He explains:

“Where the market is saturated with over-the-counter products for bites that either offer anti-itching relief, cooling or are antiseptic, this is the first product to provide the full spectrum of benefits without any ingredients or drugs that can have nasty side effects, such as skin thinning or bleaching.

At Science of Skin, we are focused wholly on promoting better skin health and finding real scientific solutions for better healing. Although the inclusion of green tea may seem common, it’s an ingredient made up of many different compounds and, following exhaustive experimentation, we identified particular, active extracts that have been the basis of our research. In contrast to the treatment options on the market, our formula is directed to working directly on the skin’s response to trauma, and in this case, bites. We have been able to identify and prove how a particular active can produce a completely new improved outcome. Early intervention has been proven to change the course of healing; a concept that had never been contemplated previously. Solution for Bites is a fantastic product that not only directly works on the skin’s response to a bite but also aids the skin’s structural repair.”
