How does ECOrepel work as a DEET-FREE insect repellent to stop bites?

Insects who bite are attracted by a combination of smell, certain colour, carbon dioxide and heat. You may wonder if a natural insect repellent like ECOrepel really works. The facts are entomologists and regulators around the world have been recommending PMD (p-menthane-3,8-diol) as an alternative active ingredient amid increasing concerns about the neurotoxicity and high dermal absorption seen in DEET. Many conscious consumers have been seeking DEET free alternatives. 

DEET is a strong plasticiser that can melt rain jackets, sandals and backpacks if not stored correctly. DEET mosquito repellent has oily feel and its strong chemical smell is unpleasant. Many people choose higher DEET concentrations thinking it works better, but all it does is make the effect last longer - which could have negative reactions on our skin.

PMD (p-menthane-3,8-diol) is an accepted active ingredient with the following agencies :
United States Environmental Protection Agency
Australia Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority
Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency
United Kingdom Fit for Travel NHS

PMD can be made synthetically or extracted from the best mosquito repellent plant. In nature, it is only found in small amounts in "young" oil, so it must be harvested from older leaves/twigs where the citronellal is turned into PMD under mildly acidic conditions. As you don't know the exact amount of PMD is in the aromatherapy oil you buy, some essential oil mosquito repellent may not be as effective as others. If a high concentration of such oil is used, application may lead to skin allergy/dermatitis in the presence of sunlight. Frequent reapplication is also needed.

We have been testing natural insect repellent’s active ingredients, and found PMDRBO sold under the brand name Citrepel75 the most effective in stopping bites. Extracted from the Java citronella plant, Citrepel75 contains at least 75% of the naturally occurring constituent PMD. Citrepel75 is registered under the EU Biocidal Products Directive (BPR) and is certified as a product of natural origin by ECOCERT. Plant-based PMD is a whole lot better for you and the environment.

So, if you are looking for an insect repellent for home that actually works, smells nice and is eco-friendly inside out, ECOrepel is the best choice for you. It jams mosquitoes’ short range radar. When you apply all over your exposed skin, the vapour from PMDRBO makes you “disappear” from mosquitoes when they get within a few centimetres of your skin. You can have several mosquitoes hovering around you, but none of them can find a good place to land for a bite. They eventually abort landing on your skin and fly away. No bites, no itch!

OK - we know we should have protected ourselves, but we are often in a rush and walk out of the house before applying ECOrepel, and then …. ouch!

Mosquitoes leave a small amount of saliva behind when they bite, and our skin’s immune system responds by triggering inflammation in the bite area which quickly starts to itch. Children are likely to develop more severe reactions to insect bites than adults, which is why a safe and effective mosquito bite relief for toddlers is a must have. Children may suffer big itchy bumps and occasionally large areas of swelling, soreness and redness commonly referred to as skeeter syndrome. Applying ECOrepel onto these areas will quickly alleviate itching. Bites also affect adults even though we may have become desensitised over time due to past bites. We still feel the itch and need the relief.

Dragon’s Blood is slowly infused in coconut oil to extract its strong anti-inflammatory effects and its natural colour. The red saps and resins from the tree of Dragon commonly known as Dragon's Blood (Botanical species: Croton, Dracaena, Daemonorops, and Pterocarpus) has been used for generations by indigenous cultures in the Amazon Riverbasic, Socotra, and Indonesia for its remarkable healing properties. Apply Dragon’s Blood infused ECOrepel with its healing chemical compounds to soothe itching, and remove pain and swelling from insect bites.

If you are looking for the best mosquito bite relief products, ECOrepel is the best choice.

As a DEET-free insect repellent, ECOrepel is effective against disease-carrying insects such Mosquitoes, Midges, Ticks, Sand-flies and Horse-flies.

Efficacy studies of PMD Rich Botanic Oil have been conducted against the main Malaria vectors, such as Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles darlingi mosquitoes. More recent studies have focused on Aedes aegypti mosquitoes (the main vector for Dengue fever and Zika virus) and ticks (Lyme disease). All these studies indicate broad similarity in the levels of effectiveness with both PMD and DEET.

Outdoor insect repellent such as ECOrepel is one way to protect against mosquito bites. But there are other steps you can take to help keep the bugs away when is mosquito season.

Cover up. Wear light coloured, long-sleeve shirts, long pants, socks, closed-toe shoes, and a hat when you go outside. Avoid outdoor shady areas and ensure you are under mosquito nets while sleeping. Clothing and nets treated with permethrin may also be considered.

Use fans/aircon. If the air is moving, mosquitoes will have a harder time landing on you. When you are sitting on the porch, turn on a fan.

Tip and Toss. Mosquitoes breed in standing water. Tip over items that you can’t dispose of to empty water where mosquito larvae may be found, such as:

  • Open buckets
  • Plastic covers
  • Trash can lids
  • Empty flower pots
