Product: EarthKind Stay Away Mosquitoes

Description: “EarthKind’s Stay Away Mosquitoes® is DEET-free, skin-friendly, unscented mosquito repellent that works. Stay Away Mosquitoes® is made with Picaridin — a natural chemical bio-identical to a black pepper plant. Picaridin is recommended by the CDC and is recognized by the EWG as a safe alternative to DEET. It’s safe for use on pregnant women and children two years and older, and gives 14-hour highly effective protection against mosquitoes and ticks, while repelling biting flies, gnats and chiggers for up to eight hours.

Stay Away Mosquitoes' EPA-registered, water-resistant and non-flammable formula not only protects you from itchy bites, but also from more serious diseases mosquitoes may transmit — including ZIKA, West Nile virus, Chikungunya and Dengue, and from ticks that may transmit Lyme Disease.

Outdoor living hinges on pest control — especially mosquitoes — but 81% of pest control users agree that repellent products are too harsh on skin, with 77% highly concerned about the chemicals used in these products, according to a recent Mintel report. EarthKind created a mosquito repellent that is powerful enough for the outdoor adventurer who loves to spend their spring and summer outside, but is also gentle on the skin, without the concerning effects of harsh chemicals - and is safe for the whole family to use (including pregnant women and children). Enjoying the outdoors shouldn’t have to come with risks, that’s why this new long-lasting and fast-acting mosquitoes repellent is a great high-quality, useful product for those who love the hiking, camping, fishing, and anything that requires extended time outdoors.”
