Inspired by widespread demand for safer, DEET-free repellents to protect consumers from tick, mosquito and fly bites, Ranger Ready Repellent launches a new EPA-registered tick and insect repellent geared towards professionals and enthusiasts who are outdoors all day.
Millions of Americans are outside every day and are exposed to ticks and mosquitos that may cause serious illnesses such as Lyme Disease and Zika virus. “Consumers have an irrational relationship with DEET,” noted Chris L. Fuentes (59), founder and CEO. “A heightened awareness of tick-borne diseases has created a dilemma for daily users of repellents who either tend to settle on using DEET or the insecticide Permethrin sprayed on separately washed clothing. Our goal was to create a safe and effective repellent that everyone would willingly apply daily,” said Fuentes. Ranger Ready was specifically designed for every day, 12-hour users who must safely protect themselves – day or night.
Ranger Ready Repellents are commercial grade, premium tick and insect repellents using the active ingredient Picaridin 20%. Picaridin, developed by Bayer Pharmaceuticals in the 1990’s, has been widely used for decades across Europe and Australia. Picaridin is a synthetic compound resembling Piperine, naturally found in pepper plants. It repels ticks and insects and makes them less likely to bite by blocking their ability to recognize your skin as a food source. Ranger Ready Repellents are not greasy, do not dissolve synthetic materials and do not irritate skin. Picaridin is safe on children over 1 year and safe to use during pregnancy.
Ranger Ready Repellents are offered in three wearable scents: Ranger Orange, featuring base notes of bergamot create a protective scent of natural orange; Amber, offering light notes of cedar that bring a natural outdoor scent to the forefront; and Night Sky, offering top notes of lavender and lemon complimented by notes of sandalwood for evening use. Ranger Ready Repellents feature fine-mist pump applicators that spray 360 degrees to optimize full body coverage.
Ranger Ready Repellent is a brand of the PiC20 Group, LLC, a privately held company based in Norwalk, CT that exclusively utilizes the active ingredient Picaridin to invent, manufacture and distribute DEET-free repellents made in the U.S.A. Under the brand names Ranger Ready Repellent™ and Picaridin20.com™, the company offers advanced premium repellents to safely protect both adults and children from tick and insect bites that may cause serious disease.
