Dirk Sandri, Head of Sales at Saltigo, adds that “the EU has made safety requirements for repellent active ingredients much stricter in recent years. This makes it all the more encouraging that Icaridin is the first insect repellent active ingredient to garner a positive opinion for approval under these tighter conditions. It is therefore clear that our Saltidin fulfills the stricter requirements. In the future, these will also apply to other repellent active ingredients that will have to be reevaluated as of 2022.”
“Saltigo offers support to companies that aim to market insect repellent formulations containing Saltidin in Europe,” says Sandri. “We offer the same level of assistance to customers outside Europe and we are working on new approvals for our tried-and-tested active ingredient Saltidin.”Detailed information is available at www.saltidin.com.
