We weighed this and its only 56grams - pretty light for the amount of product you get, and its the highest preparation. In the US you can get 98% DEET products and lots of people do, however Care Plus tell us that 98% DEET will only give an hour or so's more protection than 50% - so why apply so much product to your skin?
General Information About Care Plus Anti-Insect DEET
Deet is suitable for both tropical destinations (with the associated risks of malaria, dengue fever and yellow fever) and for European countries. The active constituent DEET is effective against stinging insects as well as ticks. DEET provides the most effective protection against (malaria) mosquitoes, gadflies, ticks and bloodsuckers, and is reasonably effective against large horseflies and midges.
Care Plus® recommends a DEET percentage of between 30% and 50%. An insect repellent with a DEET percentage of less than 30% may not be effective, and a percentage above 50% has no added value. The percentage of DEET in the repellent is the decisive factor in how long the repellent remains active on the skin.
