Citrefine International Limited is a family-run British company founded in Leeds, England over 20 years ago. One of Citrefine’s founders, a specialist in tropical medicine, recognised the need for an effective and naturally sourced option to protect against the increasing threat of vector borne disease. His primary concern was finding a low-toxicity alternative to DEET, with efficacy rigorous enough to protect against Malaria. Through a multitude of clinical laboratory tests and field trials, it was proven that Citriodiol® readily met this need, and it is now used in well-known insect repellents the world over. Leading authorities worldwide now recognise Citriodiol’s® first-rate efficacy making it the only plant-based repellent with this level of accreditation.

Alongside its UK headquarters, Citrefine established an office in the USA to support its expanding customer base, and now exports its products to over 30 countries globally. It offers a tailored approach to its customers encompassing regulatory, technical, commercial and operational expertise. Our in-house regulatory team and scientific laboratory can offer help and support throughout the process of bringing an insect repellent to market.

Our experienced, pro-active team dedicated to Citriodiol® can support you from the R&D phase through to product registrations, launch and beyond. We are passionate about our business and are here to help.
