Reasons to Use Picaridin Instead of DEET
Picaridin is as effective as DEET as an insect repellant. But compared to DEET it has a better safety profile. DEET may have neurotoxicity. Picaridin does not leave an oil residue on the skin the way DEET does.
Reasons to Use Picaridin Instead of Essential Oils
Picaridin spray last 12 hours. Research shows essential oil repellants are effective for 20 minutes only.
