Frequently Asked Questions

Is Mosi-guard Natural as effective as deet? Yes
The active ingredient in Mosi-guard Natural is Citriodiol
®, nature’s most effective insect repellent. Deet, an old fashioned repellent, is a synthetic chemical which is a powerful solvent. This means that it can damage plastics, paints and synthetic fabrics. Deet is rapidly absorbed through the skin, which can lead to problems, especially in young children. Many people find the oily feel and smell of deet unpleasant and skin reactions are common. Despite the drawbacks, deet was always considered to be the most effective insect repellent available and this led to widespread recommendation of deet.

However, a recent study conducted at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine compared three of the most popular insect repellent brands in the UK. It was shown that Mosi-guard Natural is as effective as the strongest available deet repellent over an eleven-hour period.
...So why put up with the drawbacks?

Can I use Mosi-guard Natural on babies and young children?
There has been extensive experience with the use of Mosi-guard Natural on children from 3 months of age onwards. There is less experience with very young babies. Very little of the active ingredient in Mosi-guard Natural is absorbed through the skin. As baby’s skin can be sensitive, we always suggest that you apply a little of the repellent to a patch of skin before making a full application. It is essential to protect babies if taking them into areas where malaria may be a risk.

I am pregnant. Can I use Mosi-guard Natural?
There have been no formal studies on pregnant women. However, if you do need to use a repellent, Mosi-guard Natural would be a logical choice as very little is absorbed through the skin.

How long does Mosi-guard Natural last?
A recent study at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine showed that Mosi-guard Natural is completely effective for eleven hours against free-flying mosquitoes when applied at normal consumer rates. In trials of this nature the subjects are inactive. Repellents may wear off more quickly if you are active or perspiring and should be reapplied more frequently.

Can I apply Mosi-guard Natural with a sunscreen?
Yes, but you should apply Mosi-guard Natural on top of the sunscreen. Remember that most mosquitoes bite between dusk and dawn when you are unlikely to be wearing sunscreen. The Aedes mosquito which spreads dengue fever bites in the day so if you might wish to apply Mosi-guard Natural over your sunscreen.
