We recommend that you use your Bug Soother within 3 years of purchase. So why not stock up for next season, too? You can take a look at your bottle's specific lot code for clarity on expiration. Here is a cheat sheet:

67H13N8 as an example
First 2 digits change with each new lot of raw material
Alphabetical indicator of year(H=2021)
Next 2 digits indicate week in year(13th week)
N8 indicates the formula being used

No. None of our products are tested on animals. We use only gentle ingredients that are safe when used as directed.

Claims for absence of an active ingredient such as "DEET-FREE" is considered misleading in nature. This claim is therefore disallowable under FIFRA (Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act)  sections 2(q)(1)(A) and 12(a)(1)(E). Consumers can readily determine if a pesticide product contains an active ingredient (e.g., DEET) by reviewing the active ingredients listed on the front panel of the label. Because all active ingredients must be listed, the absence of an active ingredient in the ingredient statement would indicate it is not in the product.

Simply Soothing® represents that Bug Soother® qualifies for exemption from EPA registration under FIFRA Section 25b.

Bug Soother was created to be gentle enough for children & those with sensitive skin, yet strong enough to be effective against flying pests like mosquitos. It is important for us to keep Bug Soother as gentle and effective as we can, nourishing your skin with simple ingredients AND protecting you from bug bites. Bug Soother also features an amazing “Scent of Summer” that smells great, but bugs hate!  Some describe the scent of our natural bug spray as vanilla ice cream, cookies, cake, refreshing citrus, and more. Bug Soother is environmentally friendly due to not using any kind of aerosol. 

Please note that we do always recommend that you try a “skin test” with ALL products and/or consult a medical professional when trying ANY product for the first time, whether natural OR synthetic!
