SkitoStop® - High Performance, Low Environmental Impact 'People Friendly Protection'!

Sun Protection

It is important to protect your skin from the sun's rays, so always use a sun screen such as SkitoStop Sun Screen with Insect Repellent. This creamy formula moisturises skin and protects against UVA and UVB rays, as well biting insects. Make sure that you reapply as required, and for continued sun exposure or exposure at midday you are advised to physically cover exposed areas of skin.

Insect Bites

While insect bites are extremely irritating, they also carry the risk of insect borne diseases, such as Malaria, Yellow Fever, Dengue Fever and West Nile Virus. To minimise the risk of getting bitten-

  • Wear clothes that cover your arms and legs
  • Wear an insect repellent, and reapply regularly
  • Sleep in a screened room, or use a mosquito net treated with an insecticide such as SkitoStop Insect Control for Fabrics

Why use Deet Free Insect Protection?

Until now, many outdoor enthusiasts and travellers have chosen insect repellents containing Deet, which although effective, has been linked with adverse health effects. The efficacy of sunblock is reduced when used in conjunction with DEET and crucially, it can cause irreversible damage to plastics and some fabrics in the event of it leaking from the bottle.

World Land Trust

Nikwax is a Carbon Balanced company and as part of our commitment to the environment, we are donating 2% of SkitoStop revenue to the World Land Trust, an organisation dedicated to the protection of the world's rain forests by purchasing land and holding it in trust in perpetuity.
