Ideal for extreme tropical conditions and family travel, Trek Ultra is a great alternative to high DEET content sprays To make sure we still offer the best repellents on the market, Pyramid's scientists have developed the technically advanced mosquito repellent Trek Ultra, to give you exactly the same long lasting protection 100% DEET but with a third of the DEET!
How does Trek Ultra work? It contains micro-encapsulated DEET which is released slowly over the period of wear, which reduces the amount that needs to be applied to the skin. One application continues to be effective for up to 12 hours and it can be used on children from age 2+. Due to the micro-encapsulation technology this mosquito repellent is also more durable in wear and is sweat & splash resistant.
Trek Ultra provides up to 12 hours protection. The length of protection provided is dependant on a variety of factors including perspiration and activity.
Very low odour that disapears after a few minutes
60ml pump action bottle
Ingredients: 30% micro-encapsulated DEET, taste aversive agent
Apply up to twice daily in the morning and early evening.
Regarding the spray application, due to the addition of using advanced micro-encapsulation technology for this DEET spray, the viscosity of the spray is slightly thicker, which does require you to apply Trek Ultra onto the palms or backs of your hands to spread the insect repellent over exposed areas of skin. The micro-encapsulation is used to allow you to use a lower strength (%) of DEET but be effectively protected for up to 12 hours, whilst also increasing resistance to sweat and splashes.
Therefore, applying this spray is similar to how you would apply moisturiser or suncream. For application of Trek Ultra onto your face, we recommend not spraying directly onto your face, but again spray a small amount onto the palm or back of your hand and lightly pat onto your face.
Take care to avoid the eyes, mouth and palms of the hands that could cause ingestion of the product.
Wash hands thoroughly after application.
Pyramid Trek Ultra Mosquito Repellent Review by Active Traveller Magazine
We review Pyramid's new 'Trek Ultra' mosquito repellent to see how well this low-DEET, family-friendly bug spray works
Trek Ultra mosquito repellent manages to provide tropical strength protection with a surprisingly low 30% DEET content. The DEET is micro-encapsulated - essentially slow release, which allows the manufacturers to put less of the active ingredient in for the same outcome.
Less DEET means you can apply Trek Ultra to children as young as 2 making this a great option for adventurous young families.
The formula is still 90% effective after 12 hours and is sweat and splash resistant. A 60ml bottle should last around a week if used every day by 2 adults
