What our customers say…

Saltidin®/Picaridin’s extensive history of proven effectiveness was unmatched for those looking for a DEET alternative without sacrificing performance.

Frank MeyerChief Marketing Officer, Natrapel®

Natrapel® chose Saltigo’s Picaridin/Saltidin® as the active ingredient because of its high consumer appeal for both look and feel without any unpleasant odor.

Aaron BaumgartenDirector Product Management, Natrapel®

Sawyer is very pleased to work with the Lanxess Corporation and to be able to utilize their active ingredient Saltidin.  Saltidin, or more commonly referred to as Picaridin or Icaridin, is a fantastic insect repellent active ingredient made to resemble the compound piperine, which occurs naturally in black pepper  which is very appealing to our customers in the outdoor camping and hiking industry.  This formula has allowed us to offer a very comfortable and effective insect repellent that is safe for the whole family as well as being highly effective against a range of insects including mosquitoes, ticks, and flies.

As an avid fisherman, hunter, and outdoors person, I choose Natrapel® with Saltidin®/Picaridin because it works for 12 hours without harm to my fishing lines and other gear and without a tell-tale DEET smell.

Ben PasquinoProduct Manager, Natrapel®

I like Picaridin/Saltidin® because the CDC recommends it to prevent diseases spread by insects and ticks.
