Alfresco Anti Bug Bite Moisturiser, in a convenient pocket size 50ml, is a natural moisturiser that contains 22 sustainably sourced botanical essential oils. This gentle and soothing child-friendly formula hydrates your face and body whilst giving you tried, tested and proven protection against bug bites.
Enriched with botanical extracts, this DEET, paraben and parafin free Anti Bug Moisturiser from Alfresco repels insects while conditioning your skin.
Alfresco insect repellents have been developed in a 300-year-old research garden in London. Botanical Extracts of Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Patchouli Oil, Cedarwood Oil work to repel insects, mosquitoes and midges, all without the use of DEET – which can react badly on the skin as well as with the plastic in camera cases, watch straps and spectacles frames.
Protecting you against bites, this insect repellent lotion comes with a pleasant fragrance and delivers lasting nourishment to your skin.
