Combined Camouflage Face Paint

A specially formulated insect repellent helps reduce disease while providing camouflage.

The Combined Camouflage Face Paint (CCFP) does more than provide the camouflage protection Soldiers need. It helps reduce diseases such as malaria and dengue fever that are transmitted by insect bites.

Developed by the U.S. Army Medical Research Materiel Command, this face paint contains the specially formulated insect repellent N,N-Diethyl-meta-Toluamide (DEET) to fend off mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, deerflies, black flies, fleas and gnats from areas of exposed skin.

In addition to providing basic camouflage, CCFP contains special agents that reduce a Soldier’s near-infrared signature. This is significant for exercises or missions taking place during non-daylight hours, when night vision goggles are in use.
