Designed to go on smoothly via a one-push continuous mist, it is free of DEET and other harsh chemicals, the brand said. It also contains a formula that harnesses the power of oil of lemon eucalyptus, which is the only naturally derived ingredient recommended by the CDC to repel insects, the company said.
“We’re excited to be able to provide outdoor enthusiasts with another effective and plant-based solution to help them enjoy life outdoors longer,” said founder and CEO Philip Freeman. “Because it’s made with plant-based ingredients, Lemon Eucalyptus Oil Mosquito & Tick Repellent Mist provides protection from pests with the environment in mind. It’s good for people and good for the planet.”
Made to repel mosquitos for up to four hours and ticks for up to six hours, the continuous spray and broad-coverage mist make on-the-go applications easier than before, and it also will not damage outdoor gear, the company said.
