|In stock (5)
The Care Plus™ brand, a market leader in insect repellents in Europe for over 25 years, is now available throughout Canada. Icaridin (also known as Picaridin) was developed by Bayer in the 1980s. It’s a synthetic replica of a natural compound found in pepper plants known as piperine. Proven as a very successful insect repellent in Europe, Icaridin has been licensed for use in Canada since 2012. Care Plus™ Icaridin is a highly effective, DEET-free insect repellent that is safe for the whole family while remaining gentle on outdoor gear.
Care Plus™ Icaridin provides 12 hours of protection against mosquitoes and ticks, and 10 hours of protection against black flies.
Studies show that Icaridin at a 20% concentration repels mosquitoes and ticks at least as well as DEET 30% and provides longer-lasting protection.
Care Plus™ Icaridin provides effective, long-lasting protection against a broad range of biting insects including:
- Black Flies
When used as directed, Care Plus™ Icaridin repels Ticks that may carry Lyme Disease and Mosquitoes that may carry West Nile Virus.
Non-scented, non-irritating Care Plus™ Icaridin can be safely used on adults, children and babies
6 months and older.
In contrast, DEET 30% repellents are not recommended for children under age 12 and must be applied more often for full protection.
Care Plus™ Icaridin is not greasy or sticky, which makes it the perfect solution for outdoor activities.
It’s also gentle on gear and won’t damage clothing, backpacks, sunglasses, watches, fishing line or other synthetic items.
