Warm weather is approaching and the prime season for mosquito-borne illnesses like the Zika virus is back. This spring/summer, proper protection is even more important as the threat of mosquito-borne illness continues to be on the rise.
The best way to prevent Zika is to protect yourself from mosquito bites with a regimen that includes using an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect product tested for repellency against mosquitoes that may carry the Zika virus, like Avon SKIN SO SOFT BUG GUARD PLUS lotions.
Avon’s two dual action SKIN SO SOFT BUG GUARD PLUS lotions not only repel and protect against mosquitoes that may carry the Zika virus, but they also provide vital SPF 30 sun protection – something that’s already a year-round must. Getting into the habit of regularly protecting yourself and your family from exposure to bugs and bites is one of the best things you can do to stay safe.
“Mosquito-borne illnesses like the Zika virus are always a cause for serious concern for consumers, especially with the change of seasons or visiting warmer climates – like those in the southernmost regions of the United States,” said Helene Rutledge, Chief Innovation Officer for New Avon LLC. “It’s important to focus on preventative care against bugs and bites, and Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus lotions feature maximum insect repellency and sun protection through formulas that are safe for the whole family.”
Avon’s lotion formulas that repel and protect against mosquitoes that may carry the Zika virus, and other insects, include:
Enriched with skin-soothing vitamin E and aloe, both products repel virus-carrying mosquitoes, and other insects such as deer ticks, gnats, no-seeums, black flies, sand flies, and biting midges. Avon’s SPF 30 formulas are also water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, as well as non-greasy, DEET-free and PABA-free.
