IMPORTANT TRAVEL ADVICE
When visiting areas where mosquito borne diseases are endemic, it is recommended that clothing is also treated with Permethrin to ensure complete protection. Permethrin Treated mosquito nets should also be used for sleeping if there is a chance that mosquitoes may be present.
DEET is a strong plasticiser that can distort or harm some plastics, synthetics and other materials. In case of accidental leakage always store DEET-based insect repellents separately in a zip-lock bag before stowing in luggage. When possible, store upright and make sure cap is screwed on tightly. Wash hands after using.
