SAFE SEA AND THE JELLYFISH

How Safe Sea protects you from jellyfish 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 products protect from jellyfish stings in several ways: 

Safe Sea lotion works by inactivating the stinging cells in several biochemical sites. It reduces tentacle skin attachments, mimics jellyfish self-recognition, blocks stinging cells activation, and interferes with the cellular signal, reducing the internal osmotic pressure in the nematocyst capsule.
