The Care Plus Anti-Insect Lotion is a DEET-based lotion, which is one of the most comonly used insect repellents around, largely due to its high performance factor. DEET provides the most effective protection against (malaria) mosquitoes, gadflies, ticks and bloodsuckers as well as being reasonably effective against large horseflies and midges.
DEET is the abbreviation for N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide (previously called N,N-diethyl-m-touamide) and its effectiveness depends on the percentage used. It is recommended that the ideal percenatge is between 30 and 50%. Anything below 30% may not be effective whereas anything above 50% has no added value. Therefore, when using products containing DEET, it is important to take note of the percentages. The higher the percentage, the longer lasting the effects will be with the maximum potential effectiveness reached at the 50% level.
All Care Plus DEET products are highly effective as well as being reliable and they are available with different percentages allowing you to choose the product which best suits you. Care Plus DEET is available as a 50% DEET lotion or spray, as a 40% DEET spray and a 30% DEET gel.
