Mosi-guard: Plant Based Natural Mosquito Repellent.
Mosi-guard is one of the most effective ways of protecting yourself from those annoying biting insects. Each Mosi-guard product features the active ingredient Citriodiol (oil of lemon eucalyptus), an Essential Oil from the eucalyptus citriodora tree that acts as a natural bug repellent. Citriodiol is just as effective as DEET but without the associated problems (it's better for you & for the environment). It provides 6-8 hours complete protection time and is also biodegradable, which is important to the well-being of plants and animals.
What is DEET, and why is Mosi-guard DEET free?
DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) is a slightly yellow Oil, which was first developed by the U.S. Army in 1946 and intended to be applied to the skin or clothing as an insect repellent. These days, DEET is the active ingredient in many Insect Repellent products around the world, and in the US, where 30% of Americans use it every year to repel biting bugs such as ticks & mosquitoes.
Depending on what you choose to read and/or believe, its important to remember that DEET is still a synthetic chemical active. When applied to the skin in bug sprays or lotions, bad reactions to DEET are extremely rare but are in no way non-existent. Mosi-guard products are ideal for those individuals seeking a naturally and sustainably sourced insect repellent which is free from synthetic chemicals. They use the oil of Lemon eucalyptus (Citriodiol) because it is plant-based, so there is no need to fear breathing it in or accidently spraying it in to your Eyes or Face.
