i used this bug repellent at a friend's house and she claimed it was plant-based and DEET-free. i looked it up online and it is a chemical, but i cant find out much more about it. the websites that say it is safe also say that DEET is safe, so i dont really trust that. the labeling says it is hypoallergenic, so thats hopeful. does anyone know about this stuff? here is the link:<br><br><a href="http://shop.avon.com/shop/product.asp?department=&level1_id=300&level2_id=306&pdept_id=514&dept_id=&pf_id=33645&find_spec=" target="_blank">http://shop.avon.com/shop/product.as...645&find_spec=</a>

It got a 5 out of 10 hazard rating on the Safe Cosmetics Database. The link to the product information is <a href="http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/product.php?prod_id=60452" target="_blank">here</a>. A better choice would be the Buzz Away Insect Repellant, Brittanie's Thyme Organic Insect Repellent, or HeavenScent Naturals Natural Insect Repellent Spritz.<br><br>
