What is DEET?
Technically speaking, its chemical name is N, N-diethyl-meta-toluamide. But more practically
speaking, it's the stuff that keeps insects away. And it does it extremely well. When looking at DEET
repellents, you'll notice that they are available with varying percentage levels of DEET. A common
misconception is that the higher the DEET percentage, the stronger the coverage. Not so. Whether you're
using 15%, 100% or something in between, all DEET repellents will give you the same great coverage
when applied. The difference is in the longevity. Each percentage of DEET corresponds to how long the
protection will last. For example, a 15% DEET will provide four hours of protection while a 100% DEET will
provide ten hours of protection. It's best to avoid over application, so we have developed an
Long Lasting Protection Chart to help you determine what the best coverage is for you based on what you're
doing and how long you'll be out there.
Over the years, numerous studies have been conducted regarding the health-effects of contact with DEET for
short-term, long-term and human exposure. The results show there are no unreasonable adverse effects to
people or the environment with the normal use of DEET products. Simply choose the appropriate percentage for
your activity, follow the label instructions and you'll be on your way to a safe, insect-free outing!•Provides 8+ hours of unscented protection
