Hero Ingredients

Neem (Azadirachta indica):

Neem oil is pressed from the seeds of the neem tree and is a traditional Ayurvedic herb used traditionally as an effective insect repellent. 

Calendula  (Calendula officinalis)

Calendula is an all round wound healer and soothing addition to this bug bar. We love this flower so much, you'll find it in most of our products!

Beeswax

Our beeswax is sourced from Australia and is unrefined maintaining its powerful healing properties. Rich in fatty acids, beeswax is excellent at helping keep moisture in the skin while Vitamin A gets to work to stimulate the production of new skin cells. 

Babassu oil

Babassu oil is a skin emollient and is what makes this bug bar melt so lusciously on your skin. It is packed with antioxidants like Vitamin E and phytosterols which is a bonus that helps keep the skin nourished. 

Citronella (Cymbopogon winterianus) essential oil

Unlike other pesticides like DEET which act to kill insects, citronella oil masks the scent of molecules that attracts mosquitos like carbon dioxide and lactic acid that we produce during normal metabolic processes. It is safe and non toxic to animals and humans and even the insects, they just don't like it - which is a win-win!

Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) essential oil

Do to the presence of the chemical constituent citronellol, Geranium essential oil is effective at deterring those pesky mossies.

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) essential oil

Closely related to Citronella, Lemongrass has been shown to be an effective insect repellent due to the high levels of geraniol and citral. In combination with other natural essential oils can offer mosquito protection for up to 6 hours per application.
