Jungle Formula Maximum
USP: Possibly the bets known insect repellent brand on the market, Jungle Formula’s maximum strength spray contains 50% DEET and is endorsed by the Hospital of Tropical Diseases.
What we say: Jungle Formula’s high-protection version came in a compact aerosol spray can which was really easy to apply and small enough to carry around all day. Applied first thing in the morning and then again in the evening, it kept all but two bites at bay – impressive for a five day stay in a notorious mosquito hotspot.
