Mozzigear understands how important the outdoors are to Aussie families. We know that mosquitoes are the most common type of insect that bite humans. And they can transmit diseases like malaria, yellow fever, and dengue, and encephalitis. So it’s important to protect ourselves from mosquito bites when we go camping.
Natural ingredients in mosquito repellent are more effective than synthetic ones because they don't contain chemicals that can irritate your skin or cause allergies. We have spent over 20 years perfecting our ingredients to be the most effective natural range in the world!!
There are many natural ingredients that act as mosquito repellent, such as citronella oil, eucalyptus oil, and lemon grass oil. These oils contain active compounds called terpenes and terpenoids which repel mosquitoes by masking the human scent or by producing a smell that mosquitoes find unpleasant.
Mosquitoes are a significant threat to humans, and their bites can cause a variety of diseases.
Research has shown that some natural ingredients work better than chemicals in repelling mosquitoes. One such ingredient is citronella. This essential oil from the lemongrass plant has been used for centuries as an insect repellent due to its strong, pleasant smell. The oil is also mixed with other oils like eucalyptus, lemon, and peppermint to form mosquito repellent sprays or candles that can be used indoors or outdoors.
Mosquitoes are attracted to people who have a high body temperature and emit certain chemicals such as lactic acid, carbon dioxide, and ammonia which they use for finding food sources such as sugar and amino acids in human sweat.
