Carol Stream, IL (PRWEB) May 1, 2006 -–
Shepard Medical Products announced its newest infection protection products, CareMates™ Insect Repellent Wipes and CareMates™ Oil-Free Sunscreen Wipe, which were developed to be used separately or together. Packaged in individual packs, CareMates™ pre-moistened wipes are a practical choice for effective sun and insect protection anywhere and anytime for people on the go. Small enough to fit into a pocket, CareMates™ formulations can be applied together to offer you the highest level of protection.
With CareMates™ Insect Repellent Wipes, you apply a highly effective repellent exactly when and where it is needed most. One step is all it takes to keep insects away for hours. Just rub the wipe over exposed skin areas (avoiding sensitive areas like eyes or mouth). CareMates™ Insect Repellent Wipes are enhanced with aloe to keep skin smooth and soft. They can even be applied to clothes without causing stains. CareMates™ Insect Repellent Wipes help protect against West Nile Virus and Lyme Disease by warding off the most bothersome biting insects, including mosquitoes, ticks, stable flies, chiggers, black flies, gnats, deer flies and fleas.
CareMates™ Oil-Free Sunscreen Wipes are pre-moistened, PABA-free and provide effective SPF 30 protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. The oil-free, fast absorbing formula keeps skin feeling fresh and clean, while the vitamin E-enriched properties help to prevent peeling and dryness. CareMates™ Sunscreen Wipes continue working for up to 80 minutes of heavy perspiration or water activity.
*Pair Up for Double Duty! CareMates™ Insect Repellent Wipes and CareMates™ Sunscreen Wipes have been developed to work together to offer you the highest level of protection. First, apply the sunscreen to exposed skin and allow to dry for approximately one minute. Once the sunscreen has dried, apply the insect repellent over the sunscreen on exposed skin. The insect repellent WILL NOT degrade the effectiveness of the sunscreen.
Safe for the Environment! CareMates™ Insect Repellent Wipes and CareMates™ Sunscreen Wipes are convenient, faster and less messy to use than bottled lotions and liquid repellents. They are also safe for the environment—since there’s no spraying, plants and grasses are never harmed by the excess chemical falling from the air.
