CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Zevo, America’s fastest growing pest control brand,1 announced the release of its new On-Body Mosquito + Tick Repellents that provide odorless, non-sticky and complete protection against mosquitos and ticks for up to 8 hours. Research conducted by P&G revealed consumers were dissatisfied when it comes to the greasy feel on skin and the strong odor associated with their insect repellents. 48% of people dislike the smell of their current insect repellent and 36% said it feels sticky on their skin.2
Zevo is disrupting the market with its new On-Body Mosquito + Tick Repellents that provide people with a non-sticky formula that is odorless, so you don’t have to bring the smell of bug spray with you while you’re dining al fresco, at the park, or grilling outside.
“We’ve spoken with thousands of consumers and have heard loud and clear their desire for a bug repellent solution that is unscented, non-greasy and provides them with dependable protection from bugs,” said Chetan Parekh, Vice President & General Manager of Zevo at Procter & Gamble. “We're thrilled to provide them with Zevo On-Body products as we continue to revitalize the pest control category and grow the Zevo brand with new, disruptive innovation.”
The products are currently available in three forms depending on your application preference – traditional forms including an aerosol and pump spray, and a lotion that allows for indoor, mess free application before you go outside. All forms have been formulated to repel ticks that may carry Lyme disease in addition to mosquitoes that may carry Zika, Chikungunya, Dengue fever and West Nile.
The active ingredient in Zevo On-Body, IR3535, is odorless and non-greasy. Unlike many traditional bug repellent products, IR3535 is inspired from a naturally occurring amino acid and does not leave your skin feeling gross and sticky. Zevo On-Body can be used on your face and body, when used as directed. Zevo On-Body is available for purchase now at a retail price of $9.99 and can be found at the stores you love including Walmart, Target, The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Kroger, Meijer and more.
