readily. Also, once on the skin it breaks down in the body oils really
quickly. You can't really have much absorption. Of course, you don't want
to spray it all over yourself, because then it's wet and you WILL absorb it.
You also don't want to burn anything treated with Permethrin because it will
give off toxic fumes.
Really, though, I think it's quite safe. I still use the lighter
concentration because it's working for me. I don't see a need to use more
