The EPA’s list of approved inert ingredients for minimum risk insect repellents has helped keep our mixes safe. One thing that’s odd, though, is that in order to get the oils to mix better with the main ingredient (water), a good cheap emulsifier is helpful. Witch hazel fits the bill, but the EPA doesn’t include witch hazel in its InertFinder. Can you tell me why, since this is a natural product that’s been approved for over the counter sales?
