I have to ask if your company is aware of the fact that your roll-on rid is the greatest thing ever made for taking the itch out new midgee and mosquito bites. I wasn't aware ..... and who would have thought that within about 10-15 minutes of rolling this on....no more itch for quite a few hours. I have used it for protection. I was told about this by a lady in the Ballina Waterside caravan park who was travelling through....very sceptical at first as they will fly through bushfires to get to me and have tried EVERYTHING on the market, including making up all the home remedies, homeopathic and natural remedies and this is the only one that works.....please don't ever change your formula!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...

RID AustraliaHi Debra, thanks for sending us your feedback. Its a great story and it's awesome to hear you've found something that works. Our medicated range carries repellent, Antiseptic, Chamomile and Vitamin E. The Chamomile soothes bites and you can use RID as a before and after bite treatment which is how it was designed. If you're interested to learn more you can find the story behind how RID was formulated on our website . Thanks for posting to our page we really do appreciate your feedback. We'd like to reassure you that after 60 years its not something we feel needs changing either. Thanks Debra. Enjoy your day.1   ·  4 weeks ago
