BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF CDC recommended Picaridin, a compound bioidentical to those found in long black pepper plants (1-Methylpropyl-2-(2-hydroxyethyl)-1piperidine carboxylate), is the active ingredient used in THIS spray. It works to repel mosquitoes, ticks, gnats and other pests by producing a smell that’s offensive to insects but odorless to people. Picaridin insect repellents provide an alternative to those that use DEET.
Each Bottle is 4 fl. oz.
SOURCE Made in the USA.
PACKAGING #1 plastic container. Please recycled. We spoke with the company's representative, and they are currently researching a way to use the same Bio-based technology they use for their Pouch Pods. We applaud their effort and hope it works out.

ABOUT THE COMPANY Our company is guided by a simple idea: “preserve the good, prevent the rest.” We believe business has a larger role to play than delivering products or profits. Companies should take the lead to protect the health of humans, animals and the environment to create opportunities where they don’t exist today.
That’s our vision for EarthKind. We were first to make effective botanical pest prevention products as an alternative to poisonous pest control. It’s part of our larger effort to eliminate the use of harmful chemicals in the home and in the environment.
Our mission is to reduce people’s reliance on harmful pest control products from 90% today to 50% by 2025. Achieving this means empowering people with education. EarthKind is leading a movement of women and families who demand safe, sustainable alternatives. By providing naturally designed products that really work, consumers are prepared to make healthier choices. We’re changing people’s minds and behaviors as well as their options.
I have tried so many different DIY and natural repellents, and they never work. Mosquitos just love me too much, so I always had to go back to DEET-heavy sprays. THIS ONE however so far has been really great. It's very effective if you make sure you spray yourself thoroughly. It does last a few hours, although my experience has been more around 3 to 4 hours, not 8 hours as they claim. Overall though, very happy, and will definitely buy again.
We really appreciate you taking the time to review this bug spray. It would be interesting to research what factors prolong or shorten a bug spray's effectiveness. Like what if we have sun screen or other lotion on, or what if we had garlic for lunch or we're O+ blood type? We'll circle back to Stay Away for answers. In the mean time, we hope the bugs give you a break!
