Babyganics Natural Insect Repellent Review

Babyganics All Natural Insect Repellent Review

FEATURES

Get rid of what’s bugging’ your baby. The power of natural essential aromatic oils (Citronella, Peppermint, Rosemary, Lemongrass & Geranium) keeps babies safe and free from pesky mosquitoes, gnats and flies. Our blend of essential oils is pungent to insects, especially mosquitoes, smells great and is safe for the whole family.

DESCRIPTION

Babyganics Natural Insect Repellent is designed to be applied to children and contains a blend of essential oils selected to help repel insects and mosquitoes. The product contains lower percentages of active ingredients compared to the best all natural mosquito repellents, and mostly consists of a whopping 95% soybean oil base. So, this item will feel very oily, which I found to be the consensus when reading through most of the reviews on Babyganics.  The remaining active repellent ingredients consist of Citronella, Peppermint, Rosemary, Lemongrass & Geranium, all of which are at less than 1% potency.  What this means to me is, it seems as though the product is on the right track as far as ingredients go, but the entire product ‘as a whole’ seems to be lacking a bit compared to other all natural repellents that have up to 10 times the active ingredients.

While the product has been shown to be effective for some, it’s reviews reveal that just over 50% of users who tried the product considered it ‘highly effective’. I did not bother to personally try this product because I am all too familiar with the top rated brands that contain much higher levels of diversified ingredients, and knew what to expect. But based on my personal experience, and a plethora of online reviews, I am rating this product as ‘average’ because it is mostly oil based (sticky) with limited variations of other important repellent ingredients.

Conclusion
Not bad for general protection but take caution, this product is VERY oily based on dozens of reviews online. The Babyganic's formula is 100% oil based and may not be ideal for some folks. Otherwise, it does contain a modest blend of active ingredients proven to keep insects and mosquitoes away.
