    Apply exactly like sunscreen; a few quick swipes and then spread ECOrepel evenly to protect exposed skin. There is no need to apply lots. Cover every inch of your exposed skin or the mosquitoes will home in on the uncovered area and bite there instead. It’s no good having a good repellent and not applying it thoroughly.

    ECOrepel comes in an oval-shaped push-up paper tube. Use your thumb to push up 5 to 8mm, hold the tube while keeping your index finger on the base and apply thinly all over exposed skin. Unlike pump or spray products, ECOrepel enables fast and precise application, no drippy mess, or spills. Avoid pushing out more than 1 cm of ECOrepel from the tube. Pushing it back into the tube may shave off the sides of the product.

    We have formulated ECOrepel so each application protects you for up to 4 hours. However, if you sweat, swim or if the climate is really hot and humid, you may need to re-apply more often. While ECOrepel is handcrafted from all natural ingredients, proper use is just as important. Please refer to “Is there any additional precaution to note?”

    As soon as you feel an insect bite, resist scratching and apply ECOrepel immediately. Once you scratch, you actually sink the mosquito’s saliva deeper into your skin which triggers a bigger bump and a more intense itch. If the itch persists, reapply.

    We have found ECOrepel brings great relief to red, swollen bites. Some of us stop itching upon first application, and others who have bigger reactions to bites require 2 to 3 swipes before the itchy feeling goes away. Once we stop scratching, we can prevent breaking our skin, and the potential open infection and long term scarring which can follow.

    The after bite ingredients in Dragon’s Blood has been used for many centuries by indigenous populations in the Amazon to relieve skin reactions from insect bites. If you are looking for the best mosquito bite relief products, Dragon’s Blood infused ECOrepel is the best choice. 

    ECOrepel protects for up to 4 hours. Like all insect repellents, hot and humid climates, your activities and other environmental factors will affect how long does mosquito treatment last. If you sweat, swim or the climate is really hot and humid, you may need to re-apply more often.

    Do not apply ECOrepel over cuts, wounds, irritated or sunburned skin. Wash hands after applying, and before eating and drinking.

    When is mosquito season, mosquitoes bite between dusk and dawn when you are unlikely to wear sunscreen, but the Aedes mosquito (Zika virus and Dengue fever carriers) bite in the day as well!

    If you are also using sunscreen, apply sunscreen first and wait a few minutes before applying any outdoor bug repellent including ECOrepel. This allows your sun protection to set and penetrate the skin.

    Yes - there have been extensive experiences with use of PMD Rich Botanic oil repellent on young children, which have shown low toxicity and also low skin penetration. In subtropical regions, the risk of Zika virus and Dengue fever transmitted from the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito is high and the dangers associated with Zika, Dengue and Malaria far outweigh anything negative which may come from a repellent.

    Young skin can be sensitive; always apply a little ECOrepel to a patch of skin and monitor any reaction prior to using it on the whole body. If your child experiences itching, redness, a burning sensation, bumps or irritation - stop applying immediately. The French Group of Tropical Paediatrics recommends the use of skin-applied repellent as follows - 1 application daily for infants above 6 months; from ages 1 to 12 years, 2 applications daily may be safely used; 3 applications daily after 12 years old through adulthood.

    If you are looking for a safe and effective mosquito repellent for kids that is not a DEET insect repellent, then ECOrepel is the best choice. Do not allow young children to handle this product. Do not apply to young children’s hands as they might rub their eyes or put their hands in their mouth. After returning indoors, wash treated skin with soap and water.

    None of the formal studies on PMD Rich Botanic Oil have included pregnant or breastfeeding individuals, so our direct knowledge is currently limited.

    If you do need to use an insect repellent pregnant, a natural product such as ECOrepel would be a better choice as all the ingredients are 100% natural and very little is absorbed through the skin.

    Do wash your hands after applying ECOrepel as you do not want to accidentally rub it off on to a newborn.

    Apply ECOrepel directly on your cheeks, nose, forehead, neck, behind the ears, but avoid eyes and mouth areas.

    After returning indoors, cleanse face thoroughly with soap and water.

    We have full disclosure of our ingredients. ECOrepel is a DEET-FREE bug repellent containing PMD Rich Botanic Oil, which, extensive testing has shown, has a low toxicity profile. It is not a skin sensitiser and is not classified as a dermal irritant.

    If you accidentally rub ECOrepel on your eyes or mouth, rinse off with water. PMD Rich Botanic Oil, the active ingredient in ECOrepel, stings if it gets into your eyes. Hold your eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing the eye. Seek medical help if irritation continues.

    If you have a history of sensitive skin or you are not sure of your allergies, it is best to test a small amount of ECOrepel on your skin and monitor any reaction. ECOrepel contains low levels of naturally occurring allergen i.e. Citronellol, Limonene and Linalool. If you experience itching, redness, a burning sensation, bumps or irritation - stop applying immediately.

    Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating and drinking. Do not apply ECOrepel over cuts, wounds, irritated or sunburned skin.

    Our paper tube packaging allows you to use every last bit of the product. When the product comes to its last inch, it may detach itself from the tube. If so, just grab the product and spread it directly on your skin with your fingers.

    Often in other single-use plastic insect repellent packaging, you’re unable to use all the product to the end simply because it becomes stuck to its plastic packaging. For ECOrepel you can use all the product and the left-over packaging is compostable, so you are getting better value and not hurting the environment.
