Repel Tropical Strength and Ultra Insect Repellents will safely and effectively repel mosquitoes, sandflies, fleas, biting flies, ticks and other blood-sucking insects.

Our DEET-based products should be your repellent of choice to protect against the Zika virus, dengue fever, Chikungunya, malaria, Ross River fever, West Nile fever and other diseases transmitted by the bite of infected insects. Results from a recent independent study show our DEET-based insect repellents offer 100% protection from the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the primary carrier of the Zika virus which can be found throughout the Pacific Islands and around the world.

Optimum levels of DEET recommended by the World Health Organisation and Centre for Disease Control are between 30-50%. DEET percentages higher than 40% are considered to be no more effective and may increase the likelihood of skin irritation and rashes.

When visiting areas where mosquito borne diseases are endemic, it is recommended that clothing is also treated with Permethrin to ensure complete protection. Permethrin Treated mosquito nets should also be used for sleeping if there is a chance that mosquitoes may be present.

Most Repel Tropical Strength products come in a handy size for travelling and can be carried within on-board luggage when flying. DEET is a strong plasticiser that can distort or harm some plastics, synthetics and other materials. In case of accidental leakage always store DEET-based insect repellents separately in a zip-lock bag before stowing in luggage. When possible, store upright and make sure cap is screwed on tightly. Wash hands after using.

Features & Benefits

This helps to protect against a broader range of mosquitoes and biting insects. Plus, with Repel, even the inert ingredients have proven insect repellency properties! The natural perfume and the antiseptics are all minor repellents themselves which helps to enhance the scope of protection.

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.

Repel products are created with a special silicon formulation. This silicon works to act as a layer on the skin and supports the DEET. This allows the DEET to fully dissipate allowing improved effectiveness and very importantly, helps to minimise the amount of DEET that is absorbed into the skin.

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.

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.

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.

All Repel insect repellents are convenient and come in a range of hands-free application options unlike some other gels and lotions which are available which need to be rubbed onto the skin increasing the risk of DEET absorption if hands are not washed thoroughly after application.
