What is Bug Soother's shelf life?

We recommend that you use your Bug Soother within 2 years of purchase. So why not stock up for next season, too?

Are your products tested on animals?

No. None of our products are tested on animals. We use only non-toxic ingredients, with lower levels than in other leading brands.

Why was it so important for our family to make Bug Soother a NATURAL bug spray?

Bug Soother was created to be gentle enough for children & those with sensitive skin, yet strong enough to be effective against flying pests like mosquitos & black flies (gnats.)  Synthetic chemicals in many products can irritate the sensitive skin of those we love, so it is important for us to keep Bug Soother as NATURAL and effective as we can, nourishing your skin with natural ingredients AND protecting you from bug bites. Our natural ingredients also help give Bug Soother it’s amazing “Scent of Summer” that smells great, but bugs hate!  Some describe the scent of our natural bug spray as vanilla ice cream, cookies, cake, refreshing citrus, and more. Natural products are also more environmentally friendly. We are currently in the process of making many of our OTHER bath & body products natural, just like Bug Soother. 
Please note that we do always recommend that you try a “skin test” with ALL products and/or consult a medical professional when trying ANY product for the first time, whether natural OR synthetic!
