Sawyer Products SP520 Premium Controlled Release Insect Repellent Lotion, 4-Ounce

Odorless, non-greasy, and sweat resistant, Sawyer Premium Controlled Release Insect Repellent is effective against ticks and all mosquitoes. This family-friendly 20 percent DEET formula significantly reduces the rate of DEET absorption by 67 percent per application, and it extends the duration of its effectiveness up to 11 hours.

Comfortable for use in the backcountry or in the backyard, this EPA-approved formula controls DEET exposure by encapsulating DEET in a protein that dissolves slowly, releasing the DEET over a longer period of time. It’s designed to be compatible with the use of sunscreen, and it can be used in conjunction with Sawyer Permethrin insect repellent clothing treatment for double protection.

Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries — everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness to point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water.

Effective but the lotion separates Very little scent and I think it works very well to keep bugs from biting. However, the lotion is a weird consistency. I’m not sure if I got an old bottle or perhaps it reacted to the heat in shipping, but it separated into a very thick clear gel (like petroleum jelly) and a very thin white liquid. Once I opened it up and stirred it with a q-tip, it got a little better but still separates easily and makes me worry that the bottle will leak if I pack it for travel. But at home, works very well…
