Trek Sensitive Insect Repellent Wipes contains 20% Saltidin – an insect repellent that was developed as an effective alternative to DEET, and also known as Picaridin or Icaridin. Many people find it more pleasant to use than DEET as it is odourless with a light, clean feel. A single application can protect the skin for up to 12 hours against mosquitoes and other flying insects. It is also effective against ticks, although in this instance it should be reapplied every 4 hours.
There are 15 biodegradable wipes per pack.
