Summer is well under way, and July 4th weekend is just around the corner! Whether you’ll be celebrating America the Beautiful by getting your grill on or soaking up the sun on the beach, you’ll want to make sure mosquitoes, gnats and other flying biting insects don’t crash your party. It’s important to take the necessary precautions to prevent bites using proven, effective formulas like Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard insect repellents. Toss the product into your beach bag and have it on-hand at your BBQ’s to protect yourself and your loved ones during your summer soirees.
Avon follows the EPA’s testing guidelines to test insect repellents for effectiveness against biting insects. Avon’s repellants are tested outdoors, in the natural habitats of flying and biting insects to confirm repellency claims against mosquitoes and other certain insects. Avon’s repellents are tested in actual insect biting populations experienced in densely wooded, marshy or swampy areas, ensuring their efficacy wherever your outdoor adventures take you.
Every Avon Skin So Soft Bud Guard product is DEET-free. Skin So Soft Bug Guard insect repellents are suitable for the entire family and contain one of two EPA-registered active ingredients, IR3535® or Picaridin. The entire collection includes:
