A partnership with Citrefine.
When living in hot tropical weather year round, we know how annoying those pesky mosquitos can be. That is why we set out to make a mosquito repellent only using the best ingredients, just for you.
We have partnered with Citrefine, a global leader of supplying insect repellent ingredients. Our mosquito repellent uses Citriodiol®, a 100% naturally sourced, organic, plant based substance. It has been proven to far more effective at repelling mosquitoes, ticks and other insects, and less toxic to humans and the environment to synthetic ingredients such as DEET.
What is Citriodiol®?
According to Citrefine, Citriodiol® is a natural ingredient derived from a simple modification of sustainably harvested Eucalyptus citriodora oil (also known as citronellal) to produce p-methane-3,8-diol (PMD).
Citriodiol® is EPA registered and is recommended by regulating agencies worldwide as an ingredient of natural origin for protection against mosquito-borne diseases.
Safe for the Environment.
Suitable and safe for everyone.
Citriodiol® is classified in the lowest Toxicity Category 4, or ‘non-toxic’, for oral, dermal and skin irritation. However, it is classified in Toxicity Category 2, or ‘moderately toxic’, for eye irritation, so we recommend avoiding spraying near eyes.
Low Transdermal Rate
Tests have shown that very little (~4%) of Citriodiol® is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, minimizing the impact on the consumers body. For comparison, DEET has a transdermal rate of (~24%).
Suitable for Children
Tests have concluded that Citriodiol® is safe to apply to infants as early as 3 months, but Citrefine recommends application from 6 months. Please consult your healthcare professional before use on children.
Suitable for Pregnant Women
Data generated from multi-generation toxicity studies, together with the very low rate of dermal absorption of Citriodiol®, supports unrestricted use by pregnant women, and supported by the US EPA.
lab tested by experts for efficacy.
Tests show 100% efficacy against 3 strains of mosquitos for up to 4 hours.
