Moskito Guard lotion is scientifically proven to provide long-lasting protection against biting insects around the world, including Mosquitoes, Fleas and Ticks which are carriers/vectors of various diseases (including but not limited to: Malaria, Zika, Dengue and Yellow Fever, Lyme disease and tick-borne encephalitis). The specially formulated combination of 20% Picaridin and a water-resistant agent has been demonstrated to provided up to 8 hours of protection. Tough against biting pests, the product is kind to your skin, moisturising as it protects. The DEET-free formulation is safe for the whole family, including pregnant women and children from the age of two. Moskito Guard is also unscented, non-sticky and non-corrosive. The World Health Organisation and Public Health England’s UK malaria prevention guidelines reports 20% Picaridin (also known as lcaridin or Saltidin) demonstrates excellent repellent properties comparable, and often superior to those of the standard DEET. Moskito Guard is your ideal tropical-travel companion, as well as being perfect for outdoor adventuring closer to home.
