The long-lasting and user-friendly active ingredient for insect repellents


Insect repellents need to be effective yet gentle, so everyone is protected, including vulnerable groups such as infants. These days, protection against mosquitoes, ticks and other assorted bugs is more important than ever. No matter how sensitive your skin, Saltidin® (Picaridin/Icaridin) is the product of choice.


Applying Saltidin®, the active ingredient for repellents, is an extremely effective way to give yourself protection from insect and tick bites. Developed in 1985 as
an effective yet gentle alternative to DEET, Saltidin® continues its worldwide success story to this day.


Saltidin® is Saltigo’s brand name for the active ingredient. The name is sometimes found on insect-repellent packaging, but more often found on labeling is the chemical name Icaridin or, on English-language packaging, Picaridin.
