Anti-Insect DEET Spray 40%, 15ml
Bites and stings by insects and other creatures can lead to irritation, itching, redness, and swelling. In some cases, such as with bee and wasp stings, serious allergic reactions can occur. Adequate treatment after a sting or bite is therefore essential. Insect bites are not only annoying, they can also be very dangerous. For instance, mosquitoes can transmit malaria, dengue fever, chikungunya, or yellow fever while a tick can infect you with the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium that causes Lyme disease.
Don’t give mosquitoes and ticks a chance and choose optimum protection against insect and tick bites. Cover as much skin as possible, and tuck trouser legs into socks to prevent stings and bites. Impregnated socks can protect feet and ankles even better. Exposed skin is best protected with a Care Plus® Anti-Insect product. Drawing on over 20 years of experience, Care Plus® offers insect repellents that prevent various diseases, for every user and destination.

Our Care Plus® Anti-Insect DEET products are available in concentrations of 30%, 40% and 50%. The percentage determines how long the product remains effective. Young children put products in their mouth while exploring their surroundings without being aware of the potential danger. Care Plus® Anti-Insect DEET products therefore contain the odorless and bitter substance Bitrex®. Bitrex® reduces the likelihood of the repellent being swallowed.DEET is the abbreviation for the active ingredient N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (CAS no. 134-62 -3).
DEET is the strongest insect repellent for the skin, suitable for all destinations, both far from and close to home. Tropicare has registered Care Plus® Anti-Insect DEET as a biocide and the product complies with all safety requirements for humans, the environment and effectiveness of use, provided it is used as instructed. Please read the label and instructions before using the product. The availability of Care Plus® Anti-Insect DEET depends on local biocide regulations.
Warning! DEET can damage certain materials, so avoid contact with plastic and lacquered surfaces such as spectacle frames, photo cameras and table tops. We advise vulnerable groups, such as pregnant women, women who are breastfeeding, not to use DEET. Instead use Care Plus® Anti-Insect Natural, which includes lemon-eucalyptus extract(Citriodiol).
