Why do you advise DEET XX% should only be used on people aged 13 years and over?

We are bound by strict regulations and laws imposed by the government. The shift from a national to a European legal system meant that the age limit had to be changed. Our Anti-Insect DEET 30% and 40% products may be used on people aged 13 years and older. Our Anti-Insect DEET 50% may be used on people aged 18 years and older.
However, the Landelijk Coördinatiecentrum Reizigersadvisering (‘national travellers’ advisory coordination centre’), www.lcr.nl, applies different rules for the use of DEET on children in tropical destinations. In case of doubt, always follow the advice of your doctor or organisation that administers vaccinations.
