Wrote to OFF and got this response that pertains only to the 100% DEET product. Asked for info o the others. Will post when I get them. I think the main concern would be that they use something like wheat germ oil to make it spread and not be drying to skin.

"Thanks for reaching out to us, Karen.

Although I can't be sure which kind of OFF!

Forgot to ask Cutter. I just sent them a note. I know we aren't supposed to ingest them but I think we have all tasted it on our lips or had some on our fingers.

Plus, it's easy to inhale it when spraying it or have it run down our faces when sweating, so it is a very good idea to check.

You never know what might cause the itchies, either. :rolleyes:

I read the label on the sunscreen recently, too--for this very purpose.

Hey, thanks for doing the leg work for us, K. :)

Fast response from Cutter. I guess they are made by the same company as Repel.
