FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

TRAVELLING WITH SKOOT?

SKOOT Personal Insecticide and Insect Repellent is DEET-free and contains non-hazardous, non-flammable ingredients. This factor, combined with the compact pack, meets with IATA (Section 2.3.5.1, 40th edition 1st Jan 1999) regulations allowable for airline travel.

Concern with the significant increase in insect-borne diseases both overseas and domestically was a major factor in the development of SKOOT as a small portable product easily carried by a person in the pocket or purse at all times.

MADE USING DEET-FREE SYNERGISED NATURAL PYRETHRIN

SKOOT has been carefully formulated with natural proven ingredients; completely safe for personal use. SKOOT has a higher level of active ingredients than many other products currently on the Australian market.

It does not contain any perfume to minimise any perceived allergies. We have formulated a natural ingredient, a derivative of lemon oil which not only assists the highly effective repellency but also imparts a pleasant aroma in use. SKOOT Personal Insecticide and Repellent provides maximum protection with safety.

HOW DOES SKOOT WORK?

The natural pyrethrums repel and kill crawling and flying insects. The added synergist, piperonyl butoxide, is derived from a natural source and enhances the effectiveness of the pyrethrum. It is a blocker and knock-down agent. It stops the mosquito from producing anti-coagulants that thin the blood. This prevents the mosquito from injecting malarial parasites or dangerous viruses as well as preventing transfer of blood to another victim.

The lemon oil extract, while acting as a secondary repellent, also imparts a pleasant citrus aroma to enhance the personal application of SKOOT.

POCKET OR PURSE SIZE

The "high load" naturally-based actives in the formulation make SKOOT one of the more effective personal insecticides and insect repellents to be placed on the local market. SKOOT has 10g/L active against the average competition at 2g/L.

Although we have a mini-pack size, we succeed, by virtue of the metered locking valve that delivers 400 individual sprays over the life of SKOOT, in outlasting "open spray" larger cans on the market. Skoot is both more convenient and better value for money.

The integrated metered locking valve and non-removable cap prevents leaking in the pocket or purse and prevents accidental spray.

WHO CAN USE SKOOT?

SKOOT can be used by children of all ages, adults and travelers both in Australia and overseas. It can be used at barbeques, while fishing, camping, gardening, golfing, during other outdoors and sporting events and at the beach. Being DEET-free, SKOOT is not a plasticiser and does not effect plastics in photographical, fishing and diving equipment.

It is suitable for use both in hospitals and in restaurants and their kitchens.

It is excellent for calming horses troubled by biting flies during equestrian events such as dressage and thoroughbred horse racing.
