CDC just revised their recommendation regarding DEET and is now saying picaridin, (oil of lemon eucalyptus)is as effective as DEET. Both field and lab studies conducted by the World Health Organization have shown that picaridin is comparable to and often superior to DEET for long-lasting, effective protection. Picaridin is currently one of the top selling active ingredients in mosquito repellents in Europe.
I bought Cutter Advanced containing picaridin for a July safari in Kenya. It has been recommended by the WHO as the best protection against malaria.
