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!® Insect Repellents you would be most interested in, we do make OFF! Deep Woods® Sportsmen Insect Repellent I, which is not formulated to contain gluten. It's also our longest lasting repellant and comes in a convenient 1oz size container that you can take anywhere.

To see what you'll be looking for, just stop by the following link:

If we can be of any further help, please let us know.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

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.
