Sawyer Controlled Release DEET Formula

Field & Stream Online Editors

Amid health concerns about the aborption of the insect-repellent chemical DEET, Sawyer Products is introducing a product that might ease the worry. The company's Controlled Release formula traps DEET particles in a protein, thereby putting less of the chemical in long-term contact with the skin. Because the formulation also slows the evaporation rate of DEET, the repellent lasts longer too. (5.99 for a four-ounce tube)
