- How long does a rollon last?
We (Cate, Zoe and Seamus) used Mosiguard every day for the 4 years when we lived in an open house at Portland Roads, Cape York, next door to a mangrove swamp. We each used one rollon every 8 days. Please note that we used it liberally twice a day every day.
- Is Mosiguard safe for children?
YES – “There has been extensive experience with the use of Mosi-guard on children from 3 months of age onwards.
There is less with very young babies. Very little of the active ingredient in Mosi-guard is absorbed through the skin. A young child’s skin can be sensitive we always suggest that you apply a little of the repellent to a patch of skin, say on the leg, before making a full application.
It is essential to protect babies if taking them into areas where malaria may be a risk.” (from mosiguard website)
