Mosquito repellents are a must in Singapore. Dengue transmission is at its peak during the months of May to September. With more people staying at home during the circuit breaker period, the risk of disease transmission is higher in the housing estates. As such, it makes sense to protect oneself and loved ones with the use of mosquito repellent.

There are basically two types of mosquito repellents – active chemical ingredients and natural ingredients. We highlight here the best mosquito repellents for your use.

1. Elven Guard by Amber Shield

Elven Guard mosquito repellent is a local Singapore product designed to provide safe protection against mosquitoes, sand flies, flies, ants, ticks, leeches, lice, bedbugs, and a wide range of other biting insects. It contains concentrated natural ingredients such as active para-methane 3,8 diol (PMD), citronellal, citronellol, isopulegol, and lemongrass. These active ingredients are safe on human skin but toxic on mosquitoes.

Moreover, it has a disinfecting effect on the skin, is non-greasy, and has a fragrant smell. Each application can last up to 8 hours of protection against mosquitoes. Re-application is advised for all-day protection and in hotter, humid environment. Elven Guard can be used in a variety of setting such as hiking, trekking, fishing, camping, expeditions, travel, construction site vicinities, and seasonal periods of higher rainfall in tropical climates.

2. Antimos301 Mosquito Repellent

ANTIMOS Effective Mosquito Control / Natural Insect Rpl Spray 70ml / ANTI  Lipas Cockroach | Shopee Singapore

Antimos301 is a patented formulation scientifically developed based on Chinese herbalogy study in Asia. It contains 4 active natural ingredients – Citronella, Pine Oil (from Pine Tree), Garlic Oil, and Camphor Powder (a white crystalline substance, obtained from the tree Cinnamonum camphora). The country of product origin is Malaysia. Antimos Mosquito Repellent is the first and only mosquito repellent that offers you both safety and effectiveness at the same time.

Antimos Mosquito Repellent is a patented and award winning natural mosquito repellent with an effectiveness rate of up to 93.3%. Some of the awards received are International Invention Awards 1998 Geneva, 1998 London, 1998 Malaysia, and 1999 China.

How does Antimos301 work to repel mosquitoes?

The right formulation of these four ingredients numbs mosquitoes’ peripheral sensory nerves and olfactory system and thus disrupts their sense of smell. Since mosquitoes rely on their sense of smell to find the source of their blood meals, they will be unable to find their targets once their sense of smell is disrupted.
