Developed in Australia for the tropics, Bushman is the best insect repellent available in the EU and UK. Tested in harsh conditions for efficacy, it offers high-performance protection on safari and outdoors.
When it comes to insect protection, no-one makes better repellent than the Australians. From the quality of their DEET to the years of development in daily Australian realities, Bushman is the top-selling premium repellent in Australia. Made for real-world conditions, Bushman Repellent has been tested to be effective even in harsh conditions. Trusted by the Australian Olympic team in Rio during the 2016 Zika outbreak, Bushman is the top-selling premium insect repellent brand in Australia, selling around 1.3 million bottles in Australia every year - a loyal following of happy customers.
What makes Bushman Repellent special is its formula - features that translate well on safari and in different outdoor environments. The great wearer characteristics of Bushman make it easy-wearing for your comfort for long hours of activities and adventures. Neither oily nor greasy, it is light and unnoticeable on the skin with a neutral scent. It is also water, sweat, and rub resistant which - together with the slow release of its actives - contributes to the longevity of the protection from a single application.
The DEET in Bushman Repellent is a plasticiser and contact with certain synthetic fabrics and painted surfaces may result in discolouration or damage.
How many hours of protection do you get from Bushman?:
• Bushman Insect Repellent is popular for its long-lasting efficacy, but how long does it last on the skin? The EU and Australia have different testing methods for the length of time insect repellent works. Australia stops the clock when the first bite happens (which, in the case of Bushman, was after 8 hours). The EU stops the clock when the first insect lands on the skin (5 hours). Therefore, one can expect between 5-8 hours' protection from insect bites from the point of application.
• We recommend you re-apply Bushman more regularly than every 5 hours as factors such as sweat, heat, and fabric contact can alter the required frequency of application. Pack one bottle of Bushman per week per person as part of your insect protection strategy on safari and outdoors.
