Bug Balm

Your healthy alternative to Insect Repellent

Did you know that your biggest organ is your skin? And… It absorbs 60-70% of whatever we put on it? And…. It only takes 26 seconds for it to enter your bloodstream. CRAZY EY!!!

On that note, let's talk something us 'Aussies' always use through the summer months. Insect repellent, because those mozzies are a bloody annoying.

Some of the commercial insect repellents are regulated as pesticides in some countries due to the main ingredient in fact being a pesticide.

The pesticides include: -DEET- N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide -Cyfluthrin -Permethrin -Pyrethroids

These commercial insect repellents are made from two ingredients, the active and the inert. Although the ‘active’ ingredient must be listen in the product bottle, other inert ingredients such as solvents, fragranced, foaming agents and preservatives do not have to be listed. So this lands us with the big question… What are you absorbing into YOUR BODY?....
