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:

Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Expedition ™ SPF 30 ($14-$16) – This powerful product provides sun and insect protection in one. Available in an Aerosol spray and Pump spray, the formula offers strong, long-lasting protection against mosquitoes, deer ticks, sand flies, gnats, no-seeums and biting midges.

Bug Guard Plus Picaridin ($14-$16) – Offering protection during dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are more active, this formula repels deer ticks that may transmit Lyme disease and mosquitoes that may carry West Nile virus. Bug Guard Plus Picaridin is available as an Aerosol Spray, Pump Spray and travel-friendly Towelettes.

Bug Guard Plus IR3535® SPF 30 Lotions ($14) – These formula s effectively repel mosquitoes, deer ticks, black flies, sand flies, gnats, no-seeums and biting midges. Aloe and Vitamin E-enriched formulas are available as a Gentle Breeze Lotion and Cool ‘n Fabulous Disappearing Color Lotion.

If you forget to use your Bug Guard insect repellent, Avon has the care you need with new Skin So Soft Bug Guard Anti-Itch Spray ($10), providing temporary relief to itching insect bites and soothes with Avon’s formula. It does not repel insects.

Avon and Estée Lauder under fire as Peta reveals cosmetic brands ‘ordered animal testing’

PETA has lashed out at Avon and Estee Lauder after finding the cosmetic companies are paying for animal testing. The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals announced on their website today that the skincare companies are no longer “cruelty-free” because they are being forced to follow regulations enforced by the Chinese government.

According to PETA, Mary Kay was also included in the list of companies that “harm animals” in the Asian country.

British brand Avon, who recently hired Alesha Dixon as the face, branded the claims ‘misleading’ but admit they are forced to conduct testing in China due to health laws.

A spokesperson said: ‘Some select products may be required by law in a few countries to undergo additional safety testing, which potentially includes animal testing, under the directive of a government or health agency.

‘In these instances, Avon will first attempt to persuade the requesting authority to accept non-animal test data.

‘When those attempts are unsuccessful, Avon must abide by local laws and submit the products for additional testing. In 2011, this affected three tenths of one percent of Avon’s products.’

‘There have been some incorrect and misleading claims made by animal rights organisations. Avon neither conducts nor requests animal testing.’

Estée Lauder have yet to comment.

Both brands have been ‘cruelty-free’ for two decades following campaigns by Peta in the late 80′s.

Does this new revelation by PETA make you want to stop using the brands? Does it affect your decision making?
