CINCINNATI, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fit Organic, one of the nation's leading makers of USDA-certified organic consumer products, today announced that U.S. Olympian Jake Dalton has signed on as an official Brand Ambassador and spokesperson for Fit Organic Mosquito Repellent. Dalton will use Fit's organic mosquito repellent to protect himself and his family against the Zika virus while he is competing in Brazil.
With more than 90,000 cases reported so far in 2016, Brazil has quickly become the epicenter of the Zika epidemic. Doctors worldwide are urging caution to all that are traveling to Brazil for the Olympic Games. Athletes and attendees, especially, are taking specific precautions to protect themselves from the virus and maintain their health while they are there.
"It's an honor to be representing the United States in Brazil this summer, so I need to be 100 percent focused on my performance while I'm there, not on mosquitos," said Dalton. "Fit Organic has that covered. Not only is the product certified organic and free of synthetic chemicals, but it's extremely effective in warding off mosquitos. I know my health's in great hands."
Fit Organic uses a combination of organic lemongrass and organic oleic acid, providing equal protection to DEET for up to three hours without the use of any harsh chemicals. With the risk of Zika causing Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), the virus threatens more than just pregnant women. Proper precautionary measures, like using safe mosquito repellent, will be key in providing safety from the Aedes Aegypti mosquito this summer.
"In addition to creating a repellent that was certified organic and safe to use on the skin, we also wanted to develop a product that people enjoyed using," said Todd Wichmann, CEO of Fit Organic. "We're so happy Jake Dalton, along with millions of others, are satisfied with our mosquito repellent, and we look forward to working with Jake to help others protect themselves from mosquitos and the diseases they spread."
