Mosi-guard is natural and DEET free.
The natural ingredient is Citriodiol ®, a naturally occurring extract of lemon
eucalyptus oil. It is long-lasting, effective, and feels refreshing on the skin.
Mosiguard – what the experts say:
Of the personal insect repellents on the market in Australia, the peak USA public health body, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), advises that the only repellents that are effective enough to recommend are those that contain adequate amounts of the following:
While these botanical repellents may only offer limited protection times, a product registered in Australia as ‘extract of lemon eucalyptus, being acid modified oil of lemon eucalyptus (Corymbia citriodora)’ [Mosiguard] has been shown to provide effective protection against a range of biting insects.
- deet (available in multiple brands in Australia)
- picaridin or icaridin (available in multiple brands in Australia)
- oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or PMD (the only product available in Australia is Mosiguard) .
This product is not actually the extract from the plant but a by-product of the hydrodistillation process known as p-menthane-3, 8-diol (PMD). This is the first plant-derived repellent to be included in public health messages issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in North America.Utterly surprised at how well Mosiguard worked.Melody and Brad, November 4, 2019
"My partner and i recently travelled to South America and spend a lot of time in the Bolivian jungles and also Mexican Jungles.
We were adamant to use a natural alternative to repelling mosquitos, ticks and all the other creepy crawlies in the jungle so we tried Mosi-Guard.
We were utterly surprised at how well it worked. The hundreds of mosquitos that continually surrounded us, didn’t dare go near our skin, same as the ticks.
It works so powerfully, smells so fresh and i would like to thank you for such an impressive product. We met many other travellers who had skin conditions and even burns from using DEET, and i am so glad i found Mosi-Guard. Thank You! I would like to leave this testimony and please feel free to use it on any website!"
