Proven to be Long Lasting
OnGuard’s natural and non toxic ingredients ensures it is safe for use for all the family including infants - however its unique formula and special production method makes it both long lasting and powerful enough for even most high risk mosquito areas.
The long lasting effectiveness is bought about by a synergy created by the blend of ingredients and has been proved in carefully regulated laboratory tests conducted in the UK’s leading tropical diseases hospital in London - where it is documented OnGuard was found to have very good repellency against the mosquitoes used (Aedes aegypti*) with application rates and duration of protection in line with other insect repellents (DEET and chemical based) currently on the market.
Further laboratory tests in Kenya showed OnGuard can be for effective up to 8 hours however we always recommend that if necessary you ‘top up’ every three to four hours as normal ‘wear and tear and abrasion’ can cause any repellent to be rubbed off the skin - AND OF COURSE THE BEAUTY OF ONGUARD’S INGREDIENTS IS THAT IT IS SAFE TO APPLY AS OFTEN AS YOU WISH - ABSOLUTELY NO DANGER OF ‘OVER APPLICATION’ OR NEED TO ‘WASH OFF WHEN IN INDOORS’ AS ARE THE STATUTORY WARNINGS GIVEN WITH ALL DEET BASED PRODUCTS!
