JERSEY CITY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TICK TOCK Naturals™, a leading organic insect repellent brand, announced today that its insect repellent has now been featured in two leading travel resources – Fodor’s Travel Blog and now National Geographic Traveler, the world's most widely read travel magazine.
“Travel Tech: Best Camping and Hiking Gadgets”
In June of this year, Fodor’s Travel Blog rated TICK TOCK Naturals™ as having the “Best organic insect repellent” in its “Best of” ranking of “Travel Tech: Best Camping and Hiking Gadgets”. In his write up, the author, Scott Tharler, cited its “sweet, flowery smell”, that is “sized for easy transport in your purse and on the plane” and that “it's definitely a good idea to bring along this environmentally conscious product as you explore the outdoors.”
The magazine, National Geographic Traveler, has included TICK TOCK Naturals™ Organic Insect Repellent as part of its annual “Must-Have Gear Guide for 2013” in its Best of The World issue (Dec 2012/Jan 2013) on U.S. newsstands December 4, 2012. The Guide is a two-page layout featuring new or existing products that the publication believes are a good fit for its readers as essential travel gear for this annual issue. The products featured are also listed on National Geographic Traveler’s Travel Marketplace site at ngt-travelinfo.com so that interested readers may request further information or be directed to the respective company sites to purchase the products of interest.
TICK TOCK Natural’s Founder, Dr. Susan Eisen commented, “TICK TOCK Naturals launched only nine months ago and the market enthusiasm for our Organic Insect Repellent has been extremely encouraging since there is a strong support for our mission. Aside from being DEET-free, our insect repellent formulation is unique in that it feels lightweight on the skin, has a pleasant smell and is cruelty-free with 100% organic ingredients that are gentle enough to be used on children and pets. We were very excited earlier this year when we were selected as a “Best of” product by Fodor’s Travel Blog. Now, we are thrilled that National Geographic Traveler, the most widely read travel magazine in the world, has included us in their Gear Guide spread for the coming year as well as included TICK TOCK Naturals™ as a listing in their Travel Marketplace. This listing will help to channel any requests for information from their wide readership base or enable purchasing of our Organic Insect Repellent products from our own site.”
About TICK TOCK Naturals™ Organic Insect Repellent
TICK TOCK Naturals™ Organic Insect Repellent is a concentrated 100% organic, chemical-free insect repellent that is also cruelty-free and made in the U.S. It was formulated after the founder, Dr. Susan Eisen, was bitten by a Lyme tick several years ago and developed acute Lyme disease. Proper medical care and strong antibiotics cured the infection. As a health professional with training in biochemistry, she had an understanding of both chemistry and natural methods and decided to formulate a product that smells good and is highly effective. TICK TOCK Naturals™ Organic Insect Repellent is both pleasant-smelling and keeps insects such as ticks, mosquitoes, gnats and fruit flies at bay. Because of its natural, gentle formulation, it can be used on children and pets as well as adults.
TICK TOCK Naturals™ Organic Insect Repellent is sold online through the Company’s website www.ticktocknaturals.com and also on Amazon. The insect repellent is also being rolled out for sale at select retail locations in the U.S., the first being Greenwich Health Mart in Greenwich, Connecticut, with other locations to follow in the coming year. The insect repellent is also beginning distribution to upscale destinations, such as the private island of Mustique in the West Indies. The Organic Insect Repellent is available for sale in a 4 oz. aluminum canister non-aerosol spray as well as in travel and purse sizes.
