EXTRA STRONG SPRAY – An innovative formulation without chemical active ingredients! 

Botanically derived repellent actives based: PMD- Citrepel® (derived from citronella java essential oil), the unique formula of PARA’KITO® Extra Strong Spray, specially developed for tropical areas, provides intense protection in high-risk areas. 

Its formula is also enriched with a unique essential oils cocktail, which is why it’s not recommended to pregnant women and children under 36 months of age. 

PROVEN EFFICACY of 10 hours against tiger mosquitoes, up to 6 hours against anopheles (malaria vector) and 7 hours against ticks.

DEET Free, but just As effective against tiger mosquito as a 50% DEET formula (the maximum allowed in Europe – some countries only allow 20% DEET) 

All PARA’KITO® products are tested and proved in independent laboratories 

Alcohol Free For Added Safety and Comfort 

All repellant sprays contain alcohol or chemical surfactants to stabilize their formulation, but alcohol or chemical surfactants both increase the undesirable penetration of active ingredients in the blood stream (through the skin).  PARA’KITO® took on the technological challenge to mix water and oil with no alcohol and no chemical surfactants, but water and oil do not mix. 

PARA’KITO®’s solution was to take a plant-based repellent oil using cellulose from trees and clay – a natural mineral – to make a unique PARA’KITO® Patented Formulation Technology:  ClayCell-Complex  with no alcohol and no chemical surfactants. 

This makes a very efficient mosquito repellent solution with enhanced efficacy and lower skin penetration.  Without alcohol, PARA’KITO® will not dry out your skin 

Three Hours Continuous Protection against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) on contaminated surfaces  

Scientists in an independent virology lab in France tested PARA’KITO® mosquito repellents against SARS-CoV-2 and discovered that they obtained 99.9% efficacy rate.  They also discovered PARA’KITO® sprays and roll-ons continuously maintain the same level of efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 for three hours after application.  

The products are the first in the United Arab Emirates to be certified specifically for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) protection. 

Unlike hydro-alcoholic gels which evaporate and dissipate rapidly after killing viruses, PARA’KITO® repellent sprays and roll-ons do not contain alcohol.  Their virucidal activity stems from active ingredients that remain on the skin and do not evaporate. 

Many people believe wearing gloves is like wearing a shield against COVID-19, but the gloves themselves can get dirty and transmit the virus.  Handwashing and sanitizing are important and helpful, but both of those stop protecting you after you touch the first potentially contaminated surface.  However, people can now have constant active protection that kills 99.9% SARS-CoV-2 on their hands and can be applied as a protective measure against transmission of the virus through contaminated surfaces. 

This makes PARA’KITO® your greatest ally to apply before shopping, handling goods, taking public transportation, attending healthcare visits, sending kids to school, and making simple everyday gestures and actions such as pressing elevator buttons where washing or sanitizing hands after every touch of a potentially contaminated surface is just not possible. 

Another benefit of this breakthrough is that PARA’KITO® does not dry out your hands because it does not contain any alcohol.  Thanks to its added safety, it provides more freedom for people to visit public spaces.  Without alcohol, it brings comfort to your skin and peace of mind at the same time. 

The Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology has issued a certificate of conformity for this virucidal claim.  This was the first product in the United Arab Emirates to be certified specifically for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) protection.  It is important to note that these PARA’KITO® products’ use is an addition to, and not a replacement for, protection measures already recommended by health authorities against coronavirus.
