The trip is done, but the adventure is about to begin. The RID DT Challenger has made it back to Australian shores, a little sunburnt, a little worn out, but packing one hell of a story!

As we gather his escapades, please enjoy this wonderfully horrifying picture – captured deep within the Amazon. To find out what happens, and to follow the whole journey, keep your eyes glued to our page. We can promise you, things get a little hairy… Stay tuned – first episode drops SOON!

Is that Captain Planet? Is that a Smurf? No, it’s the RID DT Challenger!

There is an old Amazonian myth that mosquitoes love the colour blue. Apparently it’s just the right hue to get their little appetites in overdrive. So, when we received the following photo from our intrepid adventurer painted blue... we knew things must be getting interesting. The RID DT Challenger has spent the last week combatting the elements and every bug and insect you can imagine – it’s safe to say, RID has been put to the ultimate test. The team arrives back on our shores this weekend, so stay tuned as we begin to compile this epic adventure into one hell of a show ¬– you won’t want to miss this.

RID FAQ's - What do the active constituents do?
DEET repels mosquitoes with a balanced combination of antiseptic (Triclosan), that acts as an antibacterial to help prevent skin infections, and a fly repellent.

RID’s Medicated Plus Antiseptic# range of products offer the most effective mosquito repellent with the added constituents of Chamomile to soothe the bite and Vitamin E which assists in wound healing in addition to the Medicated formulation of antiseptic and a fly repellent.

The anti-inflammatory agents of Chamomile & Vitamin E will relieve stinging, itching and swelling, caused by insect bites, nettles and prickles. This means that if an insect does bite, RID soothes the itching and swelling, reducing the temptation to scratch the bite.

If the itch is scratched and the skin is broken, RID assists in preventing bacterial infection. Check the full list out on our website. www.rid.com.au/faq
