Features & Specs


  • Developed in cooperation with the U.S. Military, government agencies, universities, and medical experts, Sawyer insect repellents offer superior protection from disease-carrying biting insects.
  • All of our repellents are non-toxic to humans, and are registered for use by the U.S. EPA. 
  • Yes, this product may be used on children in accordance with the product's directions for use.


  • Sawyer's Controlled Release Insect Repellents use a patented Sub Micron Encapsulation process by which DEET is captured inside a Micale protein.
  • As shown in the diagram below, each microscopic particle of protein contains chambers which hold the DEET.
  • Over a period of up to 24 hours your skin slowly dissolves the protein particles. As the particles are dissolved, DEET is released from the chambers for evaporation (the function which keeps the bugs away). At any point in time you may simply wash the remaining formula off your skin with soap and water.
