What Is Picaridin?
According to Picaridin.info, Picaridin is a repellent for mosquitos and other insects which is similar in effectiveness to DEET, but more pleasant to use, almost odorless and much less likely to cause skin irritation. This Piperidine derivitave, developed by Bayer®, has been available worldwide since 1998 and is one of the best-selling insect repellents in Europe where it is also known as “Icaridin” and is marketed under the name Bayrepel®. Picaridin has been available in the USA since 2005.
