FAQS

Below are answers to some of the more common questions we get asked


lifespan circle image

Product lifespan

All Bushman products are effective for 5 years from DOM (Date of Manufacture)

The DOM can be found with the Batch Number (BN****)

If there is no DOM, just numbers, then its is an old code which means the product is older than 5 years, and potentially unreliable

What is the SPF of 'plus'?

Bushman ‘Plus’ products include sunscreen

Regulations prevent us from quoting an SPF factor on the product

This is because the authorities consider them primarily as insect repellents, not sunscreens

The sunscreen is included as a benefit and is NOT a replacement for a dedicated sunscreen

Bushman plus product range image

See the 'Plus' range HERE


lifespan circle image

Bushman & Sunscreens

For the best performance apply sunscreen first and Bushman on top of that

If you're wearing anything else on your skin make sure Bushman is the top layer

Consider 'topping' up your Bushman whenever you 'top up' your sunscreen


lifespan circle image

Using Bushman on kids

All Bushman products use the active DEET

The EPA have approved DEET for use on children with no age restriction or % ceiling

We advise that Bushman is applied to children over 3 years of age

This is just in case the child gets product in their eyes, for example, and is unable to convey the issue to their parents or guardian

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 (Except for Bushman Naturals) 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.
