Frequently asked questions

Can I use IR3535® repellents on my baby? Can I use IR3535® repellents to prevent head lice? Is a formulation with IR3535® effective against ticks? Where can I find IR3535® repellents?

The IR3535® molecule was inspired by a naturally occurring amino acid, making it highly tolerable for humans, animals, and the environment. That’s why Mr.Fizzi® MAX boasts an excellent safety record, enabling insect repellent formulations for safe use on everyone, including infants and pregnant women. No age limits apply to IR3535®, so Mr.Fizzi® MAX repellent is even safe for very young children. Nevertheless, repellents should always be handled with caution, and the product label instructions and information should be read carefully.

IR3535® is a reliable and highly tolerable active substance in repellents used to prevent lice infestations. A bio-clinical study (* F. Militäo de Sousa, 2009 Veterinary Faculty State University of Ceara, Fortaleza, Brazil) with IR3535® repellent proved that a single application of Mr.Fizzi® MAX can provide protection for up to two days, assuming the product is not rinsed off with water. The tolerance levels were excellent. None of the respondents reported irritation, redness, or itching during the time of the test.

Mr.Fizzi® MAX provides reliable protection against ticks. The repellent efficacy of the active ingredient IR3535® against Ixodes scapularis was tested in 2008. The results showed that a spray with 20% IR3535® provided up to 11 hours of protection. Tests with the European sheep tick confirmed the efficacy against ticks.

Insects use natural odors to navigate. There are various substances in nature which provide signals to insects. For example, there are substances which help male mosquitoes find females or guide females to a host where they can feed on blood. Mr.Fizzi® MAX is based on a natural amino acid called ß-alanine. It sends out a simple message to these insects: stay away! This is called the “repellent effect”. So Mr.Fizzi® MAX is a repellent that tells insects to move away from skin, textiles, and hair. Some repellents also have insecticidal effect, which means they may actually kill insects after contact. This is not the case with Mr.Fizzi® MAX, which only sends out a message to go away and does not harm insects.

Mr.Fizzi® MAX only issues messages to insects. When used on human skin or textiles, it is not capable of killing insects. In addition, Mr.Fizzi® MAX is gentle on the skin and scores highly in terms of safety. This has been confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Environmental protection Agency (EPA), and many other international authorities. IR3535® has been used in repellent products in Europe for more than 30 years and there are no known reports regarding serious side effects. For more information, refer to the original publications issued by the WHO and the EPA by clicking on the “other webpages” button.

Yes. Mr.Fizzi® MAX is safe for children, babies and pregnant women. Many authorities (as well as the WHO) have investigated the safety of IR3535® in detail. IR3535® received an excellent safety rating and is specifically highlighted with respect to use in children’s products. The French Ministry of Health recommended IR3535® for children and pregnant woman during chikungunya epidemics on Réunion (January 31, 2006). IR3535® is now found worldwide in many repellent products specifically targeted at children. With most products, the label provides you with the best instructions on children’s use. Any repellent used by a child should be applied by an adult. You will find specific usage instructions for children here: http://www.cdc.gov (search for “Insect Repellents”).

Yes, but with caution. We recommend trying them on a part of your clothing that cannot be seen before use. Like a number of other repellents, Mr.Fizzi® MAX is not compatible with certain synthetic materials. But adding insect protection to clothes can be important in high-risk areas because some mosquitoes can bite through clothes. Also, ticks often stay undiscovered on clothing for hours before moving to unprotected skin later.
