Care Plus Icaridin 20% Deet Free Insect Repellent

  • Description & Features

Icaridin is the common name of the compound Hydroxyethyl Isobutyl Piperidine Carboxylate that is used in topical insect repellents. It's an odourless and almost colourless liquid, known as an effective insect repellent.

Icaridin repels insects and makes them less likely to bite. It works in the same way as DEET by blocking the insect’s sense of smell to the presence of humans.   Care Plus Icaridin 20% provides 12 hour protection against mosquitoes and ticks, and 10 hours of protection against black flies. Studies show that Care Plus Icaridin at a 20% concentration repels mosquitoes and ticks at least as well as DEET 30% and provides longer-lasting protection.

  • Non-scented, non-irritating
  • Can be safely used on adults and children 6 months and older
  • Not greasy or sticky
  • The perfect solution for outdoor work and sports
  • Provides effective, long-lasting protection against mosquitoes, ticks and black flies

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work at all I really wanted to love this bug spray. Brought it up to Northern Ontario for the May long weekend when the black flies and the mosquitos were out in droves, and hungry. I followed the instructions and put it on my bare legs just to unpack the car and was eaten alive in minutes, it didn't deter the mosquitos at all. For me, it was entirely ineffective. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great repellant I use this every day while walking the dog. Have not found a single tick on me, and the mosquitos stay away. Great product. Have recommended to others

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This is the best bug spray I have ever used. We were at baseball last night, sitting in the shade, and our friend was getting eaten alive (he was using OFF) and we didn’t get a single bite. I’ll be a repeat customer without a doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps the ticks away! My husband wears this to go in our woods here in Nova Scotia and hasn't found a tick on him yet! The only times we have seen ticks have been when we didn't spray ourselves with this. We stock up on this every year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love this but... I bought a small bottle first, tried it. It worked for walks around the block. No bites. Was happy that it worked for this purpuse. Bought a bigger bottle and went camping - big mistake! I did not work on mosquitos at all! I was shocked how fast my kiddos were attacked by these blood suckers, had to re- apply constantly. Would not buy again for camping, need something else. No smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat the deet With an abundance of ticks in the area and on the trails, this has been a must have for hikes. I also use it for gardening or just sitting out in the evening when the mosquitos are out. I dislike most repellents but this has no smell, is non-greasy and won't take the finish off your plastics. Easy to use and very effective. And safe for kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good option I have found it works well. The best part is that there is hardly any scent.
