    Love this insect repellent. I’ve always been to uneasy about putting insect repellent creams or products on my kids especially my newborn. But this one truly is so pure and no harmful or strong smell to irritate the skin and mucous in the nose

    PRODUCT DETAILS

    The Pure Beginnings 100% Natural Insect Repellent Stick is safe to use on babies, as it does not contain DEET.  With LippishieldTM – our proprietary blend of Lippia, Citronella, Neem and Lemon Eucalyptus, the stick provides protection against mosquitoes and other insects.

    • Lippia Oil – from one of Africa’s most under-rated fragrant medicinal plants. It is widely credited as being antiseptic and is believed to be useful as a gargle for sore throats. The essential oil is high in ipsdienone, which is shown to repel insect pests.
    • Citronella oil – a plant-based insect repellent that has been registered for this use since 1948. The United States Environmental Protection Agency considers oil of citronella as a biopesticide with a non-toxic mode of action.
    • Neem Oil – is a key ingredient in providing a natural alternative to synthetic pesticides in agriculture. It is also effectively used in creams and balms to help deter insects.
    • Lemon Eucalyptus Oil – used in natural insect repellents to help provide hours of relief from biting insects.
    • DEET FREE – Safe for babies
    • 100% Natural-origin ingredients

    DIRECTIONS FOR USE

    Apply to exposed body areas. Repeat regularly for best results.

    DECIPHERING DEET?

    Diethyltoluamide (also called DEET) is the most common active ingredient in conventional insect repellents. It is a slightly yellow oil intended to be applied to the skin or to clothing, and provides protection against mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, leeches, and many other biting insects.

    Whilst this may sound wonderfully convenient, the common everyday use of DEET causes it to seep into our water sources and streams. DEET is highly toxic to freshwater fish and many harmless insects.

    CAN IT HARM US?

    As with anything, conflicting reports give us differing opinions. Studies show that side effects of extended periods of exposure to DEET include irritation, redness, rash and swelling. People who have swallowed products containing high concentrations of DEET have also experienced stomach upset, vomiting, and nausea. When it comes to children, toxicity is a valid concern. There are natural alternatives available, so when there’s a safer choice of product on offer – use it!

    PRODUCT TIPS

    Leaving an open Pure Beginnings Insect Repellent Stick next the cot or bed will help provide additional protection during the night. 

    MO’S HELPFUL TIP

    “Mosquitoes use vision to initially locate hosts and are attracted to dark colours. Light coloured clothing that covers the skin is an effective way to protect against mosquito bites.”

    WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY

    Mosquitoes – need I say more… I bought this insect repellent when my son was about 4 months old and never again will I use anything else. It really really works, and it is not harmful for my baby! I also love the citronella smell…
