Picaridin Is Safe & Effective
Picaridin is a synthetic substance developed using the natural piperine compound, an organic material commonly found in the plants used to produce black pepper. It was developed in the 1980s by German scientists looking for a safer, yet equally effective alternative to DEET. Unlike DEET, Ranger Ready Picaridin 20% can be safely applied to skin and gear and does not contain any neurotoxic substances.
A Better Alternative to DEET
Outdoor enthusiasts are wary of using DEET-based insect repellents because of their potential health risks and skin irritation, greasy feel, and unpleasant odors. DEET repellents provide only 8 hours of protection, while Ranger Ready Picaridin 20% Insect Repellent offers up to 12 hours of protection from ticks and mosquitos. Ranger Ready Body-Worn Picaridin 20% Repellent does not include any neurotoxic chemicals, can be safely applied to the skin, and comes in 4 wearable scents.
Ranger Ready offers a variety of safe and effective insect repellent products. While our Permethrin repellents provide insect protection for clothing and gear, our Picaridin products are body-worn repellents safe to apply directly to skin every day. Ranger Ready Repellents made with Picaridin 20% are easy to use, long-lasting and available in Scent Zero, Night Sky, Ranger Orange, and Amber scented options.
Choose the Best Available Protection from Biting Insects
Biting insects like mosquitos and ticks are not only bothersome but they can also be dangerous. Many ticks carry infectious diseases like Lyme disease, Powassan virus, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Investing in the most reliable protection is one of the best options for limiting your exposure. Consider Ranger Ready Picaridin 20% Insect Repellent for safe and effective protection.
