Mozzigear FAQs

1. How do you know that a natrual insect repellant will work?

Not all natural or plant based repellents will work, it is important to ensure any insect repellent is registered with the APVMA. The APVMA is a government agency that regulates and apporves any formula which can be sold in Australia. Mozzigear has been approved by the APVMA, which means it has undergone extensive testing and had to show to be effectvie and safe for use as per application instructions.
Mozzigear has also been tested and designed to ensure that the product is effective at repelling mosquitoes, midges and sandflies.

To check if a product is APVM approved, you just need to check the packaging. Legally any APVMA registered product must list its APVMA registration number anywhere on the label. They must also list the active ingredients and their concentration on the front of the packaging.

2. Why did we create a natural, plant based insect repellent?

We created Mozzigear because we couldn't find a product which was effectvie and yet safe for our family and children. We found when we used other 'sensitive' products on the market, the children had a reaction and were not able to use the products. Over and above this, all the leading brands have DEET which is a toxic ingredient, we were worried about what sort of future implications DEET could have on any young child.
