However, such natural repellents had several disadvantages: they usually have very weak repellent effects that only acted on mosquitoes; they had a very short period of action which could not be lengthened by mixing with other substances; and they had a relatively high risk allergy. hence, scientist had to research for a more effective and safe repellent. Mosquito repellents have been widely used by consumers in the Philippines. However, such mosquito repellents usually have unpleasant smell. Fortunately, some companies has gone a step further by having triple lipid complex which help bring back the skin's natural lipid protection washed away soap. You not only get protection from mosquitoes, your skin gets moisturized., too!!!

I still prefer bug repellant essential oils to the usual commercial brand. I try to avoid DEET even if studies say the amount isn't really harmful to people. :)
