With warm finally here, the prime season for mosquito-borne illnesses like the Zika virus is back. This spring, proper protection is even more important as the threat of mosquito-borne illness continues to be on the rise.
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:
- SKIN SO SOFT BUG GUARD PLUS IR3535 Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion: Dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic, this lotion is lightly scented with a cool, springtime fragrance.
- SKIN SO SOFT BUG GUARD PLUS IR3535 SPF 30 Cool ‘n Fabulous Disappearing Color Lotion: The pediatrician-tested, hypoallergenic, kid-friendly formula goes on blue so you can see exactly where it’s being applied, then dries and disappears into the skin.
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.
Available exclusively on Avon.com and through Avon Representatives.
