GRAND TONGO

Our Most Asked Questions

A new way to repel bugs, without repelling people.

Why choose Picaridin
over DEET?

Picaridin has lower toxicity grades for skin and eye irritation as well as a lower absorption rate. Picaridin also has a more appealing cosmetic experience since it's clear, non-sticky and odorless. DEET can irritate skin and has even been known to dissolve plastics.

Is this safe to spray
on my children?

Yes! Our family-friendly Picaridin formula keeps you and your family protected for 12 hours against mosquitoes and ticks. Our formula is safe for pregnant women and infants 6 months and older.

Is Grand Tongo safe
for the environment?

Yes! Our packaging is compressed with ambient air, not flammable propellents. The cans that we use are infinitely recyclable and the plastic actuators can be recycled as well.
