DEET viewed as a cost-effective active ingredient with exemplary protection properties

DEET (N, N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) is the most common mosquito and tick repellent and is considered safe by many public health authorities and organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the WHO. Registered for public use since 1957, DEET is considered the gold standard of insect repellents. Due to its economic feasibility and exemplary protection qualities, it captures the largest market in insect repellent active ingredients.

Repellents with less than 10% concentration considered safe for infants and children.

Insect repellents with less than 10% concentration of active ingredients are ideal for infants and children. According to the American Academy of Paediatrics, insect repellents containing less than 10% DEET are safe for children as young as two months old and provide protection for about 2-3 hours. The Department of Health, Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of Hong Kong has also advised that the concentration of DEET for children should not exceed 10%. This preference is attributed to the lower health risks and optimum safety standards associated with lower concentrations of active ingredients, which make it a viable option for usage on infants.

Mosquitoes are the cause of the most widespread viruses and infections

Mosquitoes are the deadliest vectors capable of parasite transmission. They carry diseases that afflict humans. In addition, mosquito bites can cause severe skin irritation due to an allergic reaction to the mosquitos saliva. To prevent the onset of such diseases, many companies and manufacturers have introduced insect repellents specifically designed to avoid human-mosquito contact. Such products mostly contain active ingredients such as DEET and Picaridin. The American Academy of Paediatrics has stated that family members over the age of two months can use DEET-based repellents with up to 30% concentration for effective protection from mosquitoes.

Aerosols are the most preferred insect repellents in terms of their ability to offer long-term protection

Aerosols are the most common form of mosquito repellents. They are made up of a few different types of ingredients, including a solvent, a propellant, and other ingredients. The solvent is usually organic alcohol such as ethanol or propanol, whose primary responsibility is to dilute the active ingredient to an appropriate concentration. Common propellants include liquefied hydrocarbon gases such as propane, butane or isobutanes, hydrofluorocarbons, and dimethyl ether. Other ingredients such as fragrances and emollients are added to aerosol mosquito repellents to make them more cosmetically appealing.
