Discover how Safe Sea protects you from their stings
WHAT DO WE FIND IN A JELLYFISH’S TENTACLE?
Each tentacle contains hundreds of thousands of stinging cells. All the organisms that belong to the “phylum cnidaria” family (such as jellyfish, sea anemones or coral) have this kind of cell, which offer them protection from predators. Each of these cells contains a capsule that incorporates a folded needle. This needle carries powerful toxins.
A. Jellyfish and jellyfish tentacles B. Tentacles and stinging cell clusters C. Clusters with hundreds of stinging mechanisms D. Cluster with stinging capsules and folded needles E. Resting and discharged stinging mechanism
HOW JELLYFISH STING:
When there is contact between a tentacle and human skin, the stinging cells are activated and deploy their needles. Each needle penetrates the skin and injects its venom, generating pain, red marks and rashes.
A. Stimulants from the skin initiate the discharge process B. High internal pressure of 200 atmospheres is built in the capsule C. With 40,000xG of acceleration the needle drills a hole into the skin D. A tubule follows the shaft and injects the venom into the body
HOW SAFE SEA lotion works:
Safe Sea contains unique and patented ingredients that protect against jellyfish stings in several ways:
Its slippery texture makes it difficult for the stinging tentacles to get a grip.
Chemical (stoppers) in the lotion block up the sites where the stinging process is activated.
Other inhibitors (stoppers) block the chemical pathway.
Chemical stoppers reduce pressure in the stinging cells, preventing the jellyfish from firing its stings.
