Care Plus Anti-Insect Repellent Spray for Kids is a DEET-free insect repellent for children and adults. It is effective, long lasting and sweet smelling, offering ultimate protection from mosquitoes and other insects. This spray is especially formulated for children, incorporating a number of key features making it the safe, reliable choice for protecting your child from any nasty bugs.
The Anti-Insect Repellent Spray is suitable for use on children from the age of 2 years on and contains carefully selected ingredients making it gentle on sensitive skin. The spray is ideal for use when holidaying abroad, whether it be within Europe or further afield, and its spray application makes it convenient and hygienic to apply wherever you are. For ultimate protection, you should apply the product to all exposed skin. Once applied, the spray is non-sticky and effective for up to 8 hours. However, it is worth noting that it may wash off with water and sweat, so reapplication is necessary in order for the spray to perform to its full potential.
Care Plus Anti-Insect Repellent Spray is the ideal choice for people who cannot or do not wish to use products that contain DEET. Instead, this spray is a Picaridin-based (trade name Saltidin) insect repellent, which is a scientifically tested ingredient proven safe to use on children. Picaridin is safe and pleasant to use on the skin, non-oily and practically odourless with easy application. It is a high-performance alternative to DEET with fewer side effects. It protects against mosquitoes (including malaria mosquitoes) for up to 6 hours, ticks for up to 2.5 hours as well as other insect bites. Anyone who has used DEET before may will know it is highly corrosive when in contact with synthetic materials. Picaridin is a non-corrosive ingredient, ensuring there is no damage to plastics. It is important to note that The American Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises both DEET and Picaridin as effective ingredients against the malaria mosquito and the West Nile virus.
