Military Insect Repellent
approved by Armed Forces Worldwide

 

High protection Military Insect Repellent containing 30% DEET for maximum protection against biting insects and the harmful diseases they can carry throughout the World.

Military Insect Repellent - 30% DEET

 

Historically, in every military conflict, combat power has been reduced more significantly by disease and non-battle injuries (DNBI) than from direct combat casualties. A large number of diseases affecting the troop strength of deployed units is directly attributed to disease-carrying arthropods. Moreover, arthropods can inflict severe physical, psychological, and economic stresses that threaten the military mission. Not only do they transmit disease, but the bites they inflict can be painfully distracting and can lead to devastating secondary infections, or allergic reactions.

Developed specifically for use by soldiers, this high quality, Military Insect Repellent Lotion contains 30% DEET in a controlled-realease, sweat-resistant polymer base, to provide maximum and cost-effective protection against all types of biting insects and the dangerous diseases they can carry.

The polymer in the formulation slows the absorption and evaporation of DEET, thereby holding it on the surface of the skin where it can continue to repel arthropods for an 'extended' period of time. Laboratory testing shows that the extended-duration DEET lotion provides 6 hours of at least 95% protection against a variety of mosquito species in a tropical environment, 10 hours in a hot, dry environment, and 12 hours in a forested/wet environment.

Military Insect Repellent Lotion in convenient 2oz tubes is non-greasy with a mild neutral odour. Also free of alcohol and is therefore safe for soldiers to stow for travel by air, land or sea. DEET based repellent HAS BEEN THE MILITARY SKIN REPELLENT OF CHOICE since 1990.

The product is a dedicated Military insect repellent formulation specifically designed for soldiers operating in extreme environments where maximum protection against arthropods and other biting insects is essential.

Made in the USA

Military Insect Repellent Lotion contains DEET at a level of 30% in accordance with recommendations made by the World Health Organization (WHO). A higher percentage of DEET is not needed nor considered to be any more effective.

When used as directed, DEET is considered to be "The best" repellent available Worldwide (World Health Organization). DEET has been used safely since being developed by the US Army in the 1940's.

DEET is the active ingredient in Military Insect Repellent Lotion from Caplock. The most commonly used chemical name for DEET is N,N-diethyl-m toluamide and your pharmacist or medic will tell you that DEET is really the only effective ingredient in repellents applied to the skin.

The World Health Organization, U.S. Army and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are among the many organizations that recommend using DEET-based repellents in affected areas.

"DEET is one of the safest, most reliable products on the market. Researchers are constantly searching for new repellents and during the past 40 years, nothing has come close to DEET in terms of repellent efficacy against biting arthropods (insects and ticks)." Jonathan F. Day, Professor of Medical Entomology, University of Florida, Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory.

  • DEET is used by approximately 30 percent of Americans annually, averaging seven to eight applications per person. This results in more than 400 million applications of DEET annually.
  • No other personal insect repellent has been tested as rigorously and extensively as DEET for effective combat use.
  • No direct link between DEET and significant health symptoms has ever been scientifically established from the proper use of DEET repellent products.
