Is infused with Permethrin

Reviewed by Jen from Olympia on Wednesday, June 14, 2017
I like this shirt overall (design, cut, color), but I bought it very quickly, just reading the title of the item. My daughter needs a shirt for camp that has long sleeves to keep the sun off. When I got this shirt it says that the fabric is infused with Permethrin to keep insects away. The insecticide is supposed to stay viable for 70 washings. Since I usually only use natural insect repellents such as essential oils, I looked up the safety of this insecticide for children and am not comfortable with my daughter wearing this.
Granted, I should have read the description more closely, but I also with STP had made it very clear that this children shirt contains an insecticide that affects the nervous system.
