COULD MAUI SOLARMAX REPEL BUGS TOO?
Q Dear Dr. V,
Does Maui SolarMax attract or repel bugs? I have noticed that some sun lotions attract them. I want to use Maui SolarMax on a backpacking trip where there will be lots of mosquitoes.
A Dear MS,
Maui SolarMax is designed to help protect your skin from aging and precancerous and cancerous conditions, as well as to provide nutrients and maintain moisture in the skin. It is not designed to repel insects, and it does not attract them. It's interesting to note, however, that the macadamia nut oil in Maui SolarMax has natural antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and possibly some antipest properties. I suggest you try it out on your backpacking trip - but take a bug repellant too. And please let me know how it works out.
