Bushman benefits

We attribute Bushman's popularity and performance to several key benefits...


Bushman benefits: Water, Sweat, Rub resistant


Bushman resistance icon


Unlike most rivals, Bushman is water resistant, sweat resistant and rub resistant.

This is such an important benefit in real world scenarios.

It means the repellent won’t be sweated off, washed off or rubbed off.

Allowing it to stay on the skin and continue to protect.


Bushman benefits: Time release technology


Bushman time release technology icon


Bushman is formulated in a unique way, that allows for the active to be slowly released.

The slow release of the active results in improved performance.

Bushman lasts longer than rivals with the same active levels, and a lot longer than rivals with lower active levels.


Did you know?

Some rival repellents record their protection times within the confines of a laboratory, which is very different to 'real-world' scenarios.

Thanks to several Bushman benefits our quoted protection times are in 'real world' scenarios.



Bushman benefits: It works!... for a long time


Bushman works icon

The combination of an effective active blended with performance-enhancing, premium ingredients in formulations created with decades of experience make all Bushman products the best choice to protect you and your family.

Bushman is long-lasting with protection times from 7 hours up to 15 hours in real world scenarios.

Bushman benefits: Wearer comfort


At Bushman we value the importance of wearer comfort. It is one of our top priorities.

Extensive formulation development has been invested to ensure all Bushman repellents offer the very best wearer characteristics.

Some ingredients used are very expensive, but are used because they create the best results.



Light skill feel benefit image

Light skin feel

For such a long-lasting repellent Bushman is neither oily or greasy.

Its special formulation means it's comfortable to wear, and unnoticeable on the skin.

Neutral odour

Pleasant, neutral scent

All Bushman products have a pleasant, neutral scent.

The otherwise strong smell of the active is completely masked throughout the range.

Rival repellents with high active levels are generally not as effective at 'masking' the odour, instead having to 'overpower' the smell with a strong fragrance.

Similarly, Bushman avoids the strong (sometimes very strong), unpleasant odour often found in citronella based repellents, that can be smelt from some distance away.

DEET


The higher the DEET%, the longer the
protection time.

Theoretically the effectiveness of a 20%
DEET product is the same as an 80% DEET
product, just not for as long.

Be wary of sub-20% DEET products.

Depending on the other ingredients in the
formulation, the protection time could be
short.

DEET has been proven, over 60 years of
use, to be a highly safe and effective
repellent against mosquitoes and other
biting insects.

Mosquito Thumbail Image

BITING FLIES


Members of the Ceratopogonidae family are
better known as sandflies, noseeums,
no-see-ums, nicnics, midge, black flies and
black gnats, amongst others.

Unlike the mosquito, that uses a proboscis,
the above have biting, piercing and sucking
mouthparts to 'gnaw' their way to blood.

Of all the insects that bite humans these are
probably the most widespread and definitely
one of the most irritating.

Bushman Product Range Image

ABOVE: The entire Bushman range is effective at
repelling biting insects, such as Sandflies

As all Bushman products use the active
DEET all are equally effective at repelling the
Ceratopogonidae family, just for different
durations of time - with the possibility of the
DryGel products being ever so slightly better,
due to their thicker composition.

It's more important to ensure that you have
applied Bushman to all exposed areas of
skin - focus on areas such as your ankles,
back of legs and neck (easy places to miss
and very appealing to them) - and apply in
advanced; don't wait until you suspect you
being bitten, as often, you can't tell.

Annoying Flies Thumbnail Image

ANNOYING FLIES


Certain flies, most commonly bush flies and
blow flies, land on your face and generally
pester you because the female of
the species wants your saliva, mucus and tears;
it's how she gets her protein.

She needs it to breed and this is why she is
so persistent and so 'in your face'. It's this
persistency that makes them so annoying,
and even uncomfortable to be around.

Our PLUS pump spray and aerosol range
(green cans and bottle) have additional
ingredients to repel these type of
annoying flies.

Bushman 3 Can lineup of Bushman Products

ABOVE:The PLUS pump spray & aerosol range contain
additional repellents for annoying flies such as, Bush

Because of the way these flies behave, the
additional fly repellents successfully prevent
them landing on your face, but you can't always
stop them from flying close to your face.

However, in independent tests we found
using these products made being around
flies much more comfortable than when not
wearing it.

BUSHMAN HISTORY

Bushman Products

Bushman was founded in 1990 by an industrial chemist with over 35 years' experience
developing personal insect repellents.

His goal was to produce the very best repellent available.

It was developed in the tropics for the tropics and tested in 'the swamps' to ensure it was the best performing repellent in the harshest of conditions.

Since then Bushman has grown to be Australia's 'Number ONE' premium repellent, mostly through word of mouth recommendations.

Through the 1990's and 2000's Bushman products have been the subject of many independent tests where they proved their performance everytime.
