Repel® insect repellents
Repel has been an iconic Kiwi brand for over 30 years and remains the top performing New Zealand made insect repellent.
Our DEET and Picaridin based formulas are alcohol free, non-greasy, have a pleasant fragrance, are water resistant and contain antiseptics. They also meet WHO (World Health Organisation) and CDC (Centre for Disease Control) recommendations so you'll have peace of mind knowing you're protected at home or overseas. A recent Australian study confirmed our DEET insect repellents provide 100% protection against Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, the main carrier of Zika, dengue and yellow fever.
So whether you’re travelling, camping, tramping or simply looking for a repellent to use around home, Repel is all you need. Visit our new website for Repel insect repellents at www.repel.co.nz.

Features and benefits
WATER AND SWEAT RESISTANT
Repel is water and sweat resistant so the effectiveness won’t easily be diminished by water and perspiration. This is important for use in hot and humid environments or when working, exercising, swimming, etc.
ALCOHOL FREE – NON-FLAMMABLE – TRAVEL SAFE
With the exception of Repel Super Aerosol, Repel insect repellents contain no alcohol making the products less “drying” to the skin, non-flammable and travel safe. This is extremely important to air travellers and the health conscious.
FORMULATED WITH ANTISEPTICS
Repel contains chloroxylenol, terpineol and lavender oil; all have known antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral properties. This is especially effective when applying Repel Insect Repellents in tropical areas where antiseptic properties are most useful.
LIGHT, PLEASANT FRAGRANCE & NON GREASY ON THE SKIN
If an insect repellent smells nice it’s more apt to be used. Insect repellents in the “olden days” were nasty; oily and smelly. Not so with Repel! The lavender oil and terpineol both act to enhance the fragrance, as well as offering other benefits.
CONVENIENT HANDS-FREE APPLICATIONS
All Repel insect repellents come in convenient hands-free applications.
