How to use: Apply liberally every three hours for maximum bug repellent effect, or when skin feels dehydrated. Suitable for use on face and body but avoid the delicate eye area. For babies, children and those with sensitive skin, please patch test a little Alfresco Anti Bug Bite Moisturiser on the back of the knee. When using, pay particular attention to any exposed areas - bugs particularly love to bite ankles and feet. And remember, bugs are also attracted to most normal fragrances or fragrant moisturisers, so avoid using Alfresco moisturisers with other perfumes or moisturisers as this could cancel out the anti bug bite properties.
For external use only. Avoid eye contact, rinse with water if contact occurs. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
