Bioactive Organic Bug Repellent (DEET-Free)

Regular price $98.00 HKD
If you're concerned with DEET repellents, the most serious concern clinically is about the affection with the central nervous system. Children with DEET toxicity reported lethargy, headaches, tremors, involuntary movements, seizures, and convulsions though the amount that led to this toxicity was unreported, according to the CDC.

While choosing the right "natural" repellent, do pay attention to the active ingredients. More than 1/4 of them have at least one synthetic repellent component!

 MIDGES & MOSQUITO SPECIES-TARGETED EFFICACY 
While the labels of many insect repellent make strong claims, they may simply not work because their formulae are not targeted to the right mosquito species regionally.
SOVOS Bioactive Insect Repellent is produced from 100% renewable and natural resources which contains clinical proven mosquito repellent components. This multi-pronged repellent offers knockdown repellency targeting broad spectrum of mosquito species and midges that are commonly found locally.

  • Organic Azadirachta indica (Neem) Oil: high repellent efficacy against Anopheles, Culex and Aedes species, acts as carrrier that can help extend the duration of repellent effects by slowing the evaporation of active ingredients from surfaces
  • Organic Eucalyptus citriodora (Lemon Eucalyptus) Oil: a natural alternative to DEET, active repellent compound: para-menthane 3, 8 diol (PMD) is the only plant-based repellent that has been recommened by the USA Centres for Disease Control (CDC)
  • Other Proprietary Botanical Ingredients 



Azadirachta indica (Neem)

The pesticidal efficacy, environmental safety and public acceptability of neem have led to its adoption into various mosquito control programmes. It is unable to develop resistance in insects too. The maximum reduction rates of Anopheles, Culex and Aedes (common mosquito species in Hong Kong) are 100%, 95.5% and 100% respectively. — Filed study in Guinea Bissau, 1999, 72:39-52

 

Corymbia citriodora (Lemon Eucalyptus)


Lemon Eucalyptus, comprising 85% of citronellal, exhibits 100% repellency for Culex spp. and 8 hours protection period.  It is proven clinical effective in preventing malaria and is considered to pose no risk to human health.  — Filed study in India, 1994, 31:505-507

《 Therapist Tip 》
Why typical natural insect repellents have short protection time? : "The effect of most plant-based insect repellents only lasts from several minutes to several hours due to their highly volatile active ingredients, so although they are effective repellents for a short period after application, they rapidly evaporated leaving the user unprotected. The exception to SOVOS Bioactive Insect Repellent has a lower vapour pressure that provides very high protection over 8 hours prolonging repellency time and a broad range of insect repelling vectors.
