Care Plus Natural Spray repels mosquitoes, ticks, midges and other biting insects through it's active ingredient Citriodiol. Citridiol is a natural extract of the leman eucalyptus plants and is gentle enough to be used by children (3 months and older), pregnant and breast-feeding mothers, and those with sensitive skin, however it has been scientifically proven in numerous field tests to be an effective and reliable repellent.
At Stepping Out we recommend Care Plus Natural Spray as an effective repellent for use throughout Europe and the UK.

How To Use
For the most effective use of Care Plus Natural it should be applied sparingly and carefully to all parts of the body not covered by clothing - the repellent should be spread evenly over the skin. Avoid contact with mucous membranes, eyes, nose (nasal passages) and lips - to protect the face from insect bites first apply the lotion to the palm of your hand and use your hand to apply carefully to your face. Care Plus Natural should not be applied to damaged skin (cuts, scratched or sunburn) and areas where skin folds occur, such as behind the knees or inside the elbows, should either not be treated, or be treated very lightly.
Care Plus Natural should ideally be applied at least 10 minutes before exposure to direct sunlight, and very importantly, when combined with a sun block the sun block should be applied FIRST and if possible you should wait 30 minutes before application of the Natural Spray. When protection is no longer required all areas of the skin where application took place should be washed.
