Trek Sensitive

Trek Sensitive (formerly Repel Sensitive) now with an even better product formulation. 

This DEET-free insect repellent is clinically proven to be as effective as equivalent 50% DEET products. It is an excellent broad spectrum repellent, ideal for providing all day protection from insect bites. Based on the latest Saltidin® technology, this gentle repellent is suitable for use by those with sensitive skin, children over two years and pregnant women. 

Apply once for all day, 12 hour protection! Made with advanced time-release technology, the Saltidin® is released slowly during the period of wear giving longer lasting protection than other repellents on the market. This insect repellent is sweat & splash resistant, non-greasy, and has a pleasant smell, meaning it is perfect for children and all the family. 

For more information on Saltidin®, see our FAQs.

Trek Sensitive provides all day protection for up to 12 hours. The length of protection provided is dependant on a variety of factors including perspiration and activity.

Aqua, Propylene Glycol, Piperidine Carboxylate (Saltidin) 20% w/w, Isopropanol, Fragrance 

Apply throughout the day and evening as required.

Regarding the spray application, due to the addition of using advanced micro-encapsulation technology for this DEET-free spray, the viscosity of the spray is slightly thicker, which does require you to apply Trek Sensitive onto the palms or backs of your hands to spread the insect repellent over exposed areas of skin. The micro-encapsulation is used to allow you to be effectively protected from bites for up to 12 hours, whilst also increasing resistance to sweat and splashes.

Therefore, applying this spray is similar to how you would apply moisturiser or suncream. For application of Trek Sensitive onto your face, we recommend not spraying directly onto your face, but again spray a small amount onto the palm or back of your hand and lightly pat onto your face.

Take care to avoid the eyes and mouth that could cause ingestion of the product. Also, once you have finished applying the repellent, make sure to wash the palms of your hands . Can be used on children over 2 years of age and pregnant women.
