PreVent Citriodiol Spray

PreVent Repellent Spray is a dual action DEET-free insect repellent based on Citriodiol which is formed from a simple modification of sustainably harvested Eucalyptus citriodora oil. PreVent Repellent Spray contains 30% citriodiol and 0.2% chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium extract.

Recent news indicates that a study by scientists at the UK's Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) found that Citriodiol, the active ingredient found in insect repellents, such as PreVent, had anti viral properties if mixed with the virus in the liquid phase and on a test surface, this includes SARS-CoV2 and COVID-19. Preliminary findings are being shared for further research.

It was reported that Jeremy Quin, a junior defence minister, said the research found that sprays containing Citriodiol “can kill the virus”. Quin invited others to take forward the DSTL’s research, which has not yet been peer-reviewed. 

Chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium extract is harvested from mature chrysanthemum flowers and has both repellent and insecticidal properties which help to improve overall product efficacy. PreVent Repellent Spray will give six hours + protection and has a shelf life of 24 months from first opening.
