Nature's most effective insect repellent. It is backed by science and used in some of the leading insect repellents around the world
Citriodiol® is a naturally sourced active ingredient found in many insect repellents worldwide. This plant based active substance is sustainably and ethically sourced and has first-rate efficacy comparable to synthetic active substances, such as DEET.
It is produced from the distilled oil of Eucalyptus citriodora trees (also known as Corymbia citriodora) using an accelerated process that mimics what naturally occurs in the leaf, by converting the citronellal content into p-menthane-3,8-diol (PMD).
Unlike other essential oil based products, Citriodiol® has passed the most rigorous safety and efficacy tests. It has met the highest standards, obtaining registrations from some of the world’s leading authorities.
