      Picaridin (icaridin) is an insect-repellent product.

      The  recommended concentration  is 20 to 25%.

      This product can be used by pregnant women, but there are not a lot of data available about use during pregnancy.

      This product can be safely used from the age of two years. There are few data available for children younger than two years. The use of repellents is recommended for young children if other mosquito-repellent measures cannot be implemented adequately.

      For young children and pregnant women, we recommend using repellents only if the other mosquito repellent measures cannot be applied sufficiently and washing it off when it is no longer needed.
