Ever think that the soap you use might attract mosquitoes? Campers, gardeners, and outdoor enthusiasts bathe with Camper’s Choice™ before heading outside. The soap contains 8 essential oils known to repel insects. Even if you're not going out, you'll enjoy it.
Camper’s Choice, like our Citronella Mist™, contains citronella, lemongrass, and lemon eucalyptus essential oils which account for the pleasant lemony scent of the bar. Essential oils of lavender, basil, thyme, patchouli, and costly catnip, reported to be 10 times stronger than DEET, combine to protect you.
Camper’s Choice also contains oatmeal to gently exfoliate and soothe. Nutritious hemp seed oil in the bar moisturizes sunbaked skin. French green clay helps make a thick, creamy lather.
Shower with Camper’s Choice before and after a hike. This bar will remove poison ivy if you scrub thoroughly with a washcloth. Make sure you remove all the urushiol, the rash-causing compound. Check out this helpful video on YouTube.
Camper's Choice meets requirements for minimum risk pesticides exempted from FIFRA regulations (Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act), under the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women are advised to avoid basil essential oil, though the amount in Camper's Choice soap is negligible.
“We bought your bug repellent soap last summer and it is wonderful. No problems with mosquitos or ticks! My wife has a lot of allergy issues with soaps & fragrances but not with this. Thank you so much for a wonderful product and great service.”
Wayne Whitney, Bella Vista, AR
“My in-laws have a cabin in rural Arkansas, and we go every year for the 4th of July. I am happy to say that I got no bites and used nothing but your soap. Not a drop of commercial repellant (which I despise). Everyone else was miserable! I made believers out of quite a few people.”
Jen Chatfield, St. Louis, MO
“We love the insect repellent soap. Haven't had a mosquito bite all season!”
Deb Meade, Hampton, IA
“I tried it and it works!”
Irene Hopkins, Wildwood, MO
“I used to be the choice mosquito food for the neighborhood. I use the bug repellent soap when I go outside and, it's amazing, I haven't been bit at all.”
Inez Conrad, St. Louis, MO
“I have been tormented by the little chiggers that fly around down here all year long. I received the first shipment on Saturday, used it that night and I have not been bothered since! It’s a miracle! I have very dry skin and I haven’t even had to use a moisturizer with this soap. I plan on never being without it. Thanks!”
Barbara Smith, Tupelo, MS
