Reliable insect repellents for the whole family

The saga begins in the 1940s when a clever chemist at Ciba-Geigy (today known as Novartis) decided to develop the first insect repellent in Switzerland. The marketing and sales department were so enthusiastic about the invention that they decided to launch the product under the catchy name «kik» (kick the mosquitoes away). Soon after, kik became a loyal companion that would protect the whole family from mosquitoes during summer in Switzerland.

kik is still manufactured in Switzerland today and offers the most comprehensive insect repellent range on the Swiss market. Not only has the relaunch created a new, modern product design, it has also brought together a new product range that meets the latest trends and needs. The formulations are dermatologically tested and offer reliable protection against insects – for the whole family!
