The new line of natural mosquito repellents made especially for babies and children is the result of Chicco's long experience of caring for them. A product line that is complete, safe and effective, to delicately protect babies' skin from mosquito and other insect bites.
Most products on the market contain active ingredients of chemical origin. The most common ones Icaridin and Diethyltoluamide (DEET) are not recommended, even in very low doses, for children younger than two. The active ingredient in the new Chicco anti-mosquito product line is of natural origin (Citrodiol), an extract of a particular species of Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus Maculata Citrodiora) from Australia. Citrodiol is widely recognized for its excellent insect repellent properties. Its efficacy makes it one of the most reliable active ingredients the world over.
All the products in the new Chicco anti-mosquito product line have been dermatologically tested, thus they are safe and suitable for the most delicate skin. With no added alcohol, colourings and parabens, Chicco products are specially adapted for children's skin (from 3 months of age), for pregnant women and in general for all those who have specially delicate skin.
Day & Night Protection
The exclusive formula of the new Chicco anti-mosquito product line works efficiently both at night and during the day, providing excellent protection against most common types of mosquitoes, including the nasty and irritating Asian Tiger Mosquito (Aedes Albopictus), increasingly found in many parts of the world.
Long Lasting Protection
The mosquito repellent effect of Chicco products lasts longer than most natural mosquito repellents on the market. A single application will protect baby's skin up to 3 hours. When longer lasting protection is required, the product can be reapplied on the exposed body.
