Jungle Formula Maximum

Jungle Formula Maximum

Whether you’re moored in the Med or cruising the Caribbean, if there’s one thing all superyacht owners have in common it’s the need to tackle insect bites while on board. To help you out we took for of the best insect repellents on the market to the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous to put them through their paces – click through to see how they fared.

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.

Buy: £9.99 for 100ml, jungleformula.co.uk
