And it’s not just reviews on sites like Amazon that stand as a testament to the product’s efficacy. In a 2005 interview, a spokesman for the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy is quoted as saying that “nothing works better” than the oil for keeping gnats away. The only problem? It’s not exactly something you can just pick up from the nearest army/navy store. “You can only get the stuff from Avon,” Neil Smith told The Scotsman. “Some buy it online and others are ordering it through local Avon ladies.”

The Skin So Soft-obsessed servicemen might think they have it hard, but that’s nothing compared to fans who are trying to avoid insects stateside: While the oil that’s sold in the U.K. gets its mysterious bug-fighting properties from citronella, the North American version is formulated without it. It does, however, contain dicapryl adipate, a lesser-known ingredient that is also known to repel bugs.
