It's about time - a DEET-free insect repellent that really works! Natrapel provides 12 hours of protection against mosquitoes & ticks and 8 hours of protection from biting insects, thanks to its CDC-recommended 20% Picaridin formula. Unlike ineffective DEET alternatives, Picaridin is the only formula that consistently shows equal or better performance than DEET in independent, clinical tests. Even better, Natrapel 12-hour is completely safe on gear and will not melt jackets, fishing line, and other synthetic materials.The 6 oz. continuous spray bottle provides effortless, even application.
