Campbell Live Tests Insect Repellents

BioGro Certified Organic Insect Repellent
TV3’s Campbell Live program tonight at 7.00pm is to report on tests done on various insect repellents. The Kiwicare Safari Organic Insect Repellent Wipes are among the natural products tested.

This follows a Consumer Magazine report that found, unsurprisingly, that repellents containing the repellent chemical known as DEET such as Kiwicare’s Safari Roll-on or Safari Stick are effective for the longest and should be used when travelling in areas where insect borne diseases such as malaria or dengue fever are a risk.

Of the natural products tested not containing DEET or any other synthetic chemical the Organic Safari Wipes were found to give the best protection and “repelled the mozzies well for a short time after application” and “you need to reapply it regularly” Kiwicare suggests hourly.
