Peaceful sleep

Last year in Zambia at all the lodges we were given this great insect repellent called "peacefull sleep".
I want to buy some of it for an upcoming trip to latin america. Anyone has an idea where to buy Peaceful sleep online, or in Europe or the USA?

We met a very nice group of South Africans in Zanzibar and they had this repellent. I really liked it as well, so would love to hear where you can buy it here.

I love the smell of Peaceful Sleep and tried to find it online. It's made in South Africa and I don't think they export it out of Africa. If anyone finds out otherwise, let us know!

Hello,

Peaceful Sleep is made by Adcock Ingram, a South African pharmaceutical company. I'd suggest getting in touch with them and asking if they have a US distributor, or if it is marketed in the US under another name.

Cheers,

i agree Hari! Off and Cutter may have the same ingredients, but nothing smells better than Peaceful Sleep to know you are on safari!

Just to add a bit more to this thread :

Diethyltoluamide is more famously known as DEET - which most people are familiar with.
