They are the "active" ingredients...there are many "natural" products available but none have proven to be that effective (except Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus..hard to find in Oz, and not suitable for small children..Under 2 I believe - interesting that the natural oil is less suitable for kids than the others....). If you're not worrying about mosquito disease then you could experiment with the myriad of natural products products available, but usually the protection is short lived...

I bought these when we went on holiday last year and ds1 only got one bite the whole week while our friend's kids who were using OFF got eaten alive. Because they're a wipe it made it easy to really cover him as well.

I've been using 'Vanilla Mozzi' on the kids and myself and my goodness it smells divine! That said, I only put it in the kids at dusk if they want to play in the cubby etc. It works, but only for a few hours.
The one we use camping or if we know we'll be outside for a ling while is 'Bushman Heavy Duty' spray and it works a treat, it has 40% Deet.

We have been affected by flooding (NSW) and as a result we have been inundated with giant mozzies. They end up inside our house and everything. It's horrendous.
We use the Bushmans 40%Deet. It works really well. I can't remember the last bite I had and I attract them like nothing else.
And just to show you, this is a screenshot from a video I took in my laundry because I accidentally left the door ajar for a couple of hours.
