PRLog - Oct. 3, 2012 - No No-See-Um has been selected as a finalist for best in outdoor safety in the 2012 SheKnows Parenting Awards. According to SheKnows, the coveted award recognizes outstanding products in the parenting and pregnancy industry based on functionality, quality, safety and convenience. Winners will be selected by an organic voting process online and announced November 5, 2012 on SheKnows.com.
No No-See-Um is an ALL-Natural insect repellent that helps protect against most biting insects that carry diseases, including mosquitoes and no-see-ums. Mainstream repellents are toxic and hazardous, especially for children. No No-See-Um combines citronella, lemongrass, and geranium oils and has been proven to be extremely effective. The formula is DEET-free, safe for children and pets, smells wonderful and parents can feel comfortable about reapplying as often as necessary.
“In this day and age, parents are becoming more health conscious and are looking for safe, natural products to use on their children, as opposed to dangerous chemicals, like DEET,” says Caroline Semerjian, founder and CEO. “No No-See-Um insect repellent is safe for both children and pets and parents love the non-sticky formula and wonderful fresh scent.”
“The SheKnows Parenting Awards are a remarkable way to recognize the products that improve the lives of parents, parents-to-be and kids,” said Laura Willard, SheKnows parenting editor. “Being selected as a finalist among the hundreds of submissions we received is an incredible achievement and No No-See-Um has clearly demonstrated they are a leader in the parenting industry.”
As a finalist, No No-See-Um will also be eligible to win an Editors’ Choice Award, which spotlights one specific brand per category chosen exclusively by the SheKnows Editorial Team. Starting today and running through October 31, readers can access voting by visiting http://www.sheknows.com/
