“We are honored that the US Open has asked us in each of the past five years to supply insect repellent for this premier golf event,” states Brad Zaro, President and CEO of Mariner Biomedical, manufacturer of Deter Outdoor Skin Protection products. “Deter Insect Repellent is very well suited for golfers. It provides safe long lasting protection against mosquitoes and other biting insects so they can focus on their game and not on unpleasant, and potentially dangerous, insect bites. In addition, it will not damage valuable golf equipment, a serious problem with DEET containing products. We are also excited for this opportunity to announce the unveiling of our new, and enhanced, web site which provides more information on our products and on the importance of skin protection while outdoors.”
Deter Insect Repellent’s unique formula was scientifically developed by a professional chemist to ensure safe long term repellency against a wide range of biting insects. Tested in the laboratory and in extreme outdoor conditions it provides ultimate outdoor protection against mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, no-see-ums, biting flies and gnats. Deter contains a proprietary blend of 8 plant oils and plant derivatives that work synergistically to provide enhanced repellency for an extended period of time.
All ingredients in Deter Insect Repellent® are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS), and comply with EPA regulations as a minimal risk insecticide. Deter is biodegradable and environmentally safe. It does not contain any DEET, the active ingredient in many insect repellent products which research has shown presents health and environmental risks.
The Company also announced the introduction of its new enhanced web site http://www.deteroutdoor.com. The new web site offers an improved user experience, additional product and background information and easier navigation.
