The Stay Away® Pests are Headed West – EarthKind® takes Natural Products Expo 2019

EarthKind®, makers of #1 fastest-growing indoor pest control line, Stay Away®, will exhibit new brand packaging and latest industry-disrupting product at Anaheim’s Expo West Trade Show

Bismarck, ND – March 4th, 2019 – EarthKind®, makers of award-winning, eco-friendly, plant-based pest control products, is headed to the west coast for the 38th annual Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, CA.

Exhibiting at booth #2873 on March 6th – 9th, EarthKind is thrilled to showcase the first public appearance of its new brand packaging, along with its latest Stay Away® product, Stay Away® Mosquitoes.

Teaming up with fellow woman-owned business, Beardwood & Co., EarthKind® rolled out a fresh new look for their Stay Away® home product line. The bolder design and full ingredient labeling right on the package front takes consumer traceability, trust and transparency to a new level. Among the new packaging is the pink-bottled Stay Away® Mosquitoes spray, a DEET-free repellent that is making strides in the industry with its powerfully effective, yet skin-friendly formula.

Stay Away® Mosquitoes was created with consumers in mind. A 2016 Mintel report revealed that 81% of pest control users agree that repellent products are too harsh on skin, with 77% highly concerned about the chemicals used in these products. Stay Away® Mosquitoes is both unscented and gentle on the skin, without the worries of harsh chemicals.

Stay Away® Mosquitoes, which has an average rating of 4.6* from over 4,500 independent, third-party reviews, is made with Picaridin – a synthetic chemical bio-identical to a black pepper plant. Picaridin is recommended by the CDC and is recognized by the EWG as a safe alternative to DEET. Its EPA registered, water-resistant formula is safe for use on pregnant women and children 2 years and older, and gives 14-hour highly effective protection against mosquitoes and ticks, while repelling biting flies, gnats and chiggers for up to 8 hours. Not only does the repellent protect against bites, but it also protects against dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses such as ZIKA, West Nile Virus, Chikungunya and Dengue, and ticks that may transmit Lyme Disease.

Jamie Hess, top NYC influencer and pregnant mom, has become a strong advocate for Stay Away® Mosquitoes after it “saved her trip” to Mexico for her sister’s wedding, “Knowing that EarthKind® Stay Away® Mosquitoes had me covered for 14-hours, protecting me from mosquitoes, especially those potentially carrying ZIKA, it allowed me to enjoy my trip [and gave] this mama a little piece of mind in the sunshine!”

Attendees are invited to come to the EarthKind booth and check out Hess’s personalized video, take some fun pictures at their Instagram booth, and talk with industry-disruptor, EY Entrepreneurial Winning Woman and CEO/Founder of EarthKind®, Kari Warberg Block, who says,

“We’re excited to return to Expo West! Come by our booth and learn about kinder ways to keep harmful chemicals out of homes and create a harmonious, eco-friendly environment for our families and pets. EarthKind is all about pushing the sustainable boundaries, inventing products that work with nature and most importantly, loving life and living kind. We can’t wait to see you!”
