What is DEET?

DEET is the common name for N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide. DEET is the active ingredient in the most effective and widely used insect repellents. Different repellents have different amounts of DEET.

Products with higher concentrations of DEET last longer.

How does DEET work?

Repellency of insects is accomplished via evaporation of DEET from the skin. The higher the level of DEET, the longer the evaporation process. Muskol® delivers up to eight hours of protection against mosquitoes.
