Default Permethrin affected?

If permethrin applied to clothing and let set, does UV blocker and scent kill spray affect the bug repelling nature of permethrin?

Permethrin(a synthetic version of pyrethrin) is a potent neurotoxin, it "repels" bugs by killing their pesky little asses. I've watched it kill a tick in under a minute while it was crawling up my leg. Unless it's sealed to the fabric in some way that it can't off gas then it will work just fine.
