What is Mosquito Repellent and Care
Mosquito repellents are substances designed to keep mosquitoes at bay, stopping them from biting and sucking human blood. Typically, they contain an active component that deters mosquitoes and secondary compounds that help to thin the active component to an appropriate concentration and facilitate its release as desired. Mosquito repellents are available in various forms, such as oils, lotions, sticks, and creams which are applied on the skin, as well as pump-spray and aerosol forms for use on clothing and skin.
The tastes of customers are consistently altering the demand pattern for mosquito repellent and care products. The competitive situation of the home care sector has changed considerably because of the shift in customer lifestyles and the move towards luxury consumer products.

Moreover, high-income customers and the young generation are moving to internet shopping for essential and non-essential items to save time and lay their hands on a wide range of products.
