Care Plus™ has been a market leader in insect repellents in Europe for over 25 years. This respected brand is now available in Canada. Icaridin, also known as Picaridin, is the active ingredient in Care Plus™. It is a synthetic replica of the natural compound piperine, found in pepper plants. Icaridin is highly effective in repelling biting insects while also being DEET-free, and gentle for the whole family.
Icaridin provides effective, long-lasting protection against a broad range of biting insects including: mosquitoes, ticks and black flies. When used as directed, this pest control product repels ticks that may carry Lyme disease.
- Great for the whole family: Non-scented, non-irritating Care Plus™ Icaridin 20% can be safely used on adults and children 6 months and older. In contrast, DEET 30% is not recommended for children under age 12.
- Gentle on your gear: Care Plus™ is not greasy or sticky, making it the perfect solution for outdoor work and sports. Icaridin is also gentle on apparel and gear. It won’t damage clothing, backpacks, sunglasses, watches, fishing line or other synthetic items.
- Up to 12 hour protection: Care Plus™ Icaridin 20% provides 12 hour protection against mosquitoes and ticks, and 10 hours of protection against black flies.
It's safe and worksWish we had this product years ago. Also, not in the description - it is approved by Health Canada and Made in Canada. The other essential oil brands that market themselves as Outdoor Spray or Outdoor Care do not work and may not be safe or they would be approved by HC too. Please do your homework with all topical products for children. We were mislead for years and regret it.
