CITRONELLA BAN IN INSECT REPELLENTS: IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL PRESS Friday 17 August 2007 PDF Print With the recent invasion of mosquitoes, a host of articles have appeared in the press recommending insect repellents to consumers, many of which contain the banned ingredient citronella. Recent EU directives have banned citronella as an ingredient in any type of insect repellent sold in the UK and Europe. The new DEETfree range of insect repellents are totally natural, highly effective and do not contain citronella. Samples and further information are available from Brandnation on 020 7940 7170. Background to the Citronella ban: In September 2006, E.U. legislation governing insect repellents came into force, known as BPD/98/8/EC, which effectively banned certain ingredients that are non-compliant. As an example, citronella cannot be used as an active ingredient in any insect repellent under this new legislation. This applies to both insect repellent for humans and animals. DEETfree Natural insect repellents are fully compliant and contain 100% natural ingredients and no added DEET or chemicals, making it the ideal choice for trade and consumers alike.
