Choose Repel Tropical Strength and Super Insect Repellents to guard against dengue fever, malaria, West Nile fever and other diseases transmitted by the bite of infected insects.
MULTI-ACTIVES (PRIMARILY DEET-BASED)
This helps to protect against a broader range of mosquitoes and biting insects. Plus, with Repel, even the inert ingredients have proven insect repellency properties! The natural perfume and the antiseptics are all minor repellents themselves which helps to enhance the scope of protection.
WATER AND SWEAT RESISTANT
Repel is water and sweat resistant so the effectiveness won’t easily be diminished by water and perspiration. This is important for use in hot and humid environments or when working, exercising, swimming, etc.
DURATION OF PROTECTION & SAFETY
Repel products are created with a special silicon formulation. This silicon works to act as a layer on the skin and supports the DEET. This allows the DEET to fully dissipate allowing improved effectiveness and very importantly, helps to minimize the amount of DEET that is absorbed into the skin.
ALCOHOL FREE – NON-FLAMMABLE – TRAVEL SAFE
With the exception of Repel Super Aerosol, Repel insect repellents contain no alcohol making the products less “drying” to the skin, non-flammable and travel safe. This is extremely important to air travellers and health conscious.
FORMULATED WITH ANTISEPTICS
Repel contains chloroxylenol, terpineol and lavender oil; all have known antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral properties. This is especially effective when applying Repel Insect Repellents in tropical areas where antiseptic properties are most useful.
LIGHT, PLEASANT FRAGRANCE & NON GREASY ON THE SKIN
If an insect repellent smells nice it’s more apt to be used. Insect repellents in the “olden days” were nasty; oily and smelly. Not so with Repel! The lavender oil and terpineol both act to enhance the fragrance, as well as offering other benefits.
IMPORTANT TRAVEL STORAGE TIP:
DEET is a strong plasticiser that can distort or harm some plastics, synthetics and other materials. Always store Repel insect repellents separately in a zip-lock bag before stowing in luggage, in case of accidental leakage. When possible, store upright, and keep cap tightened.
