What is DEET?
DEET is an old fashioned insect repellent which was registered for public use in 1957. It is derived from coal tar and is the most well known insect repellent. It is a synthetic chemical and powerful solvent.
DEET versus DEET free?
The main difference is the active ingredient. The active ingredient in Mosi-guard Natural® is Citriodiol®. Unlike DEET which is a synthetic chemical active, Citriodiol is plant based, also known as Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus. Other differences relate to the problems associated with DEET.
In recent years, concerns have surfaced about the use of the insect repellent DEET. There have been a small number of serious neurotoxic effects reported in small children, as well as documented mosquito resistance and accumulation of DEET in some US public waterway. Many consumers also object to DEET’s strong, chemically smell and the fact that it melts plastic upon contact. This has prompted consumers to seek DEET free alternatives.
Mosi-guard Natural® products are all entirely DEET free. They don’t melt plastic, the contain and active that is biodegradable and there is no known accumulation in any public waterways. In addition, the most recent toxicity safety profile being reviewed by the European authorities show it is appropriate for use on children at 6 months and unlike any other naturally sourced active ingredient, the active in Mosi-guard Natural® has been recommended for use by the US Center for Disease Control to repel mosquitoes carrying insect borne disease.
