The chemical is commonly used in cosmetics and toothpaste.

Haruyama spent nearly a year developing the suit, which costs 52,290 yen, amid rising worries about the outbreak of swine flu.

The suit will go on sale in Japan on October 8, and the company has said it is also considering making a similar suit for women.

The World Health Organization has reported more than 340,000 confirmed cases of H1N1 worldwide, and more than 4,100 deaths.
