With a cosmetically- enhanced balm- formula, Autan Family Care Stick provides gentle yet effective protection and care for the whole family. The new formula contains a revolutionary and unique new active ingredient called Icaridin which was developed during a 12-year research programme.
A recent report by the World Health Organization concluded that Icaridin can be recommended as the repellent of choice for malarial prevention. It has excellent repellent qualities comparable with and often superior to those of standard DEET. A single application can give up to 8 hours protection from mosquito bites, (however, to be sure and safe, re-application of the stick is recommended every 3 to 4 hours).
