Product description

Odorless, non-greasy, and sweat resistant, Sawyer Premium Controlled Release Insect Repellent is effective against ticks and all mosquitoes. This family-friendly 20 percent DEET formula significantly reduces the rate of DEET absorption by 67 percent per application, and it extends the duration of its effectiveness up to 11 hours.

Comfortable for use in the backcountry or in the backyard, this EPA-approved formula controls DEET exposure by encapsulating DEET in a protein that dissolves slowly, releasing the DEET over a longer period of time. It's designed to be compatible with the use of sunscreen, and it can be used in conjunction with Sawyer Permethrin insect repellent clothing treatment for double protection.

Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries -- everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness to point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water.

Reviewed in the United States on 9 July 2018
Bought this product to use on the kiddos during our recent deep woods camping trip. The lotion is a little watery and it's hard to gauge how much you need but worked great for getting the product on the little ones. I found that the lotion worked better than the 40% spray I brought for the adults, so I ended up using this as well. The wife didn't like getting it on her hands so she used the spray more often. I just wiped the extra on my clothes, or rinsed my hands. I'll be buying this for our family from now on.
