This herbal insect repellent contains an extract of Neem seed oil known as Margosa. It is suitable for anyone, even those with a sensitivity to conventional insect repellents because it doesn’t contain any DEET, a synthetic and potentially toxic ingredient that appears in most repellents.
Neem insect repellent doesn’t harm clothing or spectacle frames, as with some other repellents. Neem Insect Repellent can be used on children, but make sure that it is applied by an adult and cover their eyes before spraying around the head.
The Neem tree has a long history of use in Indian culture and Ayurvedic medicine. It has long been known that Neem can act as an insect repellent – it was traditional practice to add a few Neem leaves to rice stored in homes to repel insects and other similar creatures.
Directions for use: As an insect repellent, apply onto exposed areas every three hours or as required.
Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid when pregnant due to essential oils. Neem insect repellent is for external use only.
Ingredients: Ethanol, octyldodecanol, Margosa extract (an extract of neem oil), bergamot oil, rosemary oil, eucalyptus oil.
