Technical Details


Product Description

Odorless, non-greasy, and sweat resistant, Sawyer Premium Controlled Release Insect Repellent is effective against ticks and all mosquitoes. This family-friendly 20 percent DEET formula significantly reduces the rate of DEET absorption by 67 percent per application, and it extends the duration of its effectiveness up to 11 hours.

Comfortable for use in the backcountry or in the backyard, this EPA-approved formula controls DEET exposure by encapsulating DEET in a protein that dissolves slowly, releasing the DEET over a longer period of time. It's designed to be compatible with the use of sunscreen, and it can be used in conjunction with Sawyer Permethrin insect repellent clothing treatment for double protection.

Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries -- everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness to point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water.

We have used this for several years after testing many products. My wife has horrible reactions to simple mosquito bites; swelling and itchy welts. She has the same reaction as I would have to a bee sting or something worse. She also, of course, hates how deet repellents smell, this one was the least offensive smelling. Since DEET is the only thing that actually works, this was the best solution. It is time released, so it lasts for a very long time. The time release properties also are supposed to reduce the amount that your body absorbs. Although I can't tell you with any scientific certainty that my family and I have absorbed less DEET, I can attest to this product lasting longer than others we have used and it would follow that since we don't need to re-apply as often, we are exposing ourselves to less DEET. We tried the Marathon product from 3M as well, it seems to work pretty well too, but is much stinkier. So, my wife will actually use this compared to the Marathon which she can't stand the smell of.

Living in East Africa, we use bug repellant almost on a daily basis. This is the best repellant we have found and many of our friends agree. It is not sticky or smelly. AND it works.

I used this product for myself and my 2 years old daughter when we were visiting India. I must say that it worked like magic. Kept all those bugs away from bugging us!! One night, I forgot to apply on my daughter and next day, she had 20 mosquito bites to be precise!

In our backyard we have quite a bit of bamboo, and mosquitos nest and breed in it. Consequently, we have LOTS of mosquitos, and it is a potential problem because we have a great patio and spend lots of time there. I say potential problem because of the effectiveness of ouir Sawyers Family Mosquito Repellent products in keeping mosquitos away from us. I have also used it hunting and fishing and it is just as effective on gnats, flies and other flying insects.

I've used a variety of products containing DEET over the years and this product has many positive characteristics:

1. It's DEET concentration is relatively low (20%). While I'm not overly concerned about putting DEET on my skin, I'd prefer to use as little as necessary to repel the bugs.
2. It is effective - biting insects including black flies are deterred (see field use comments below).
3. The time release formula seems to prolong the effectiveness and the product needs to be applied less frequently than other products with similar DEET percentages.
4. It is not as "greasy" feeling as most DEET products. The product is a creamy lotion that largely (though not completely) feels "dry" after applying.

As product is a lotion, rather than a spray, probably would not be as suitable for application to clothing (e.g. socks) to repel flies, mosquitoes or ticks.

I used this product on trips in Quetico Provincial Park in Ontario in June and July, 2011. Even in extremely "buggy" portages while sweating heavily I managed to avoid inset bites. Bug conditions were sufficiently bad that others were wearing netting.

This stuff works like magic. My two children have been at summer camp in the woods and near ponds and swamps, early morning and dusk for the last week and half, and neither one has one single bug bite on them. Not one bite. I put just a dab on and easily spread it around. Really great product.

Thousands of deer flies in my favorite canyon during the hot summer months and on my first journey down in the canyon using Sawyer's insect repellent the deer flies were all around me and i never received a single bite!

And if it worked for deer flies i believe it will work for any biting insect.

Thank you Sawyer!

Not greasy, no odor. It was recommended for my baby by a pediatrician who said the slow-release formula DEET does not penetrate the skin as much as other formulas so it's safer. Kept all the bugs away in SE Asia, which is a very buggy place.
