We offer multiple application methods so you choose the protection that best suits your preference. Our 360º spray pump sprays at any angle, including upside down for easy application in those hard-to-reach spots. The convenient aerosols provide quick and thorough coverage - apply in a sweeping motion across skin. Looking for something that doesn't leave your skin greasy or oily? Choose the dry formula!

The ’Deets’ on DEET

Our 25% and 40% DEET formulas repel mosquitoes, including those that may transmit the Zika, West Nile, Dengue and Chikungunya viruses. It's recommended for those spending longer periods of time outdoors in more heavily infested conditions. Length of protection ranges from 2 to 10 hours (depending on the percentage of DEET in the product).
