The Best DEET Free Insect Repellent
Many customers have come to Alfresco because they were looking for a DEET free insect repellent. Someone recently wrote about our Acqua D’Alfresco Fragrance, Pocket size x 6: “This is the most effective bug and safe repellent I have ever used. It’s all natural without chemicals. I love the smell which is much nicer than that of other repellents.” DEET, or diethyltoluamide, is the most common active ingredient in other insect repellents.
Although you can find it in all shop bought products, many people do not know about the effects DEET can have. It can act as an irritant, and can even melt plastic. It is advised that it shouldn’t be applied on children’s skin more than once a day. DEET also has environmental effects, and traces of it have been found in water around where people are using it. On top of all this, mosquitoes are beginning to adapt to the repellent effect of DEET after first exposure. For all these scary reasons I wanted to make a DEET free insect repellent, one that can be put on children’s skin without worrying about them or the environment.
Alfresco - The Best DEET Free Insect Repellent
Alfresco, on the other hand, is a totally natural product. I developed the blend when volunteering at the 300 year old Chelsea Physic Garden, perfecting the exact combination after a long few years experimenting! It was a priority for me to keep Alfresco Anti Bug Bite Moisturizer paraben and paraffin free. It’s a moisturizer that works for everyone- from young to old and it is kind to sensitive skin. If you haven’t tried our products already – why not order one of our Alfresco Try Me Packs? At only £10 with free postage and a product I guarantee you’ll love – there’s no reason not to!
