Fit Organic introduces a new weapon against Zika
CINCINNATI — One of the world's leading makers of USDA-certified organic consumer products has unveiled a Mosquito Repellent Spray.
Organically certified safe for pregnant women and children, Fit Organic Mosquito Repellent Spray has been scientifically proven to be as effective as DEET for up to three hours with zero bites, and without the potential harmful side effects of using synthetic pesticides.
The company says Fit Organic Mosquito Repellent Spray has been tested by scientists in Brazil specifically against Aedes Aegypti mosquitos — the #1 carrier of the deadly Zika virus. Further, the research showed that the Fit Organic formula is effective against mosquitos carrying the West Nile virus and malaria.
Fit Organic Mosquito Repellent Spray is a unique formula comprised of two key ingredients: organic lemongrass grown in Nepal and organic oleic acid derived from sunflowers in the United Kingdom.
"Oleic acid is a natural secretion that is emitted from dying insects; effectively, a 'death scent,'" said Wichmann, president, CEO & founder of HealthPro Brands. "Once the scent is detected, insects avoid the area because they believe something will harm them."
Fit Organic products are available at CVS and other major retailers.
