Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against contaminated water, sun, stinging insects & injuries--everything from water filters developed for kidney dialysis machines to our newest tropical insect repellents that use time-released liposome technology.
Sawyer are specifically dedicated to eliminating two of the biggest causes of death in the world: bad water and mosquito bites.
Sawyer acquired Coulston Products in 1999, the company that helped develop the use of permethrin, an insect repellent treatment for clothing that provides protection for U.S. troops and outdoor enthusiasts and was adapted for use on mosquito nets now widely used in Africa, saving millions of lives. Sawyer partnered with the World Health Organization (WHO) to conduct the underlying studies that led to the widespread use of repellent on mosquito netting. Sawyer now sells the number one brand of permethrin.
Sawyer are also the proud developers of point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water. Developed using advanced kidney dialysis filtration technology, Sawyers hollow fibre membrane filters are the fastest, easiest, and most cost efficient way to deliver clean water anywhere. They are small, portable, don't require chemicals, a power source, or trained operator for use or maintenance.
