Post image for Natural Bug Repellent – Keeping the Mosquitoes at Bay in Africa

Mosquitoes. Let’s face it, they’re a pain in the butt, their bites are agonizingly itchy, and some harbor some pretty nasty diseases. So bug spray is an absolute must when visiting Africa or any other buggy destination for that matter. But we’ve all heard how the chemicals in bug spray, primarily Deet, can strip a car of its paint. This isn’t very comforting when we’re spraying it on our skin!

The good news is that there are a variety of natural bug repellents out there, including one of our favorites, Naturally Charleston’s EVADA-BUG Insect Repellent.

I asked the owner of Naturally Charleston, Pam, to spotlight the inspiration behind her products and the types of products that they offer. Check out her guest article below!

There is a long story behind the actual formation of the company NATURALLY CHARLESTON and the first product EVADA-BUG. The two partners, my husband and myself, often have very diverse and sometimes competing views within our respective industries, our differing expertise, and then our varied geographical experiences. I grew up in Philadelphia, owned several businesses and for many years studied natural healing with a variety of respected people within the fields. Ino, co-owner of Naturally Charleston, is Dutch and lived in Zimbabwe and South Africa before becoming a U.S. citizen and joining the conventional pharmaceutical world as a chemist and later managing major worldwide projects. If we caught a cold, I used an herb and he used Robitussin!

When we relocated to the Lowcountry of South Carolina (where “BUGS RULE”), finding an all-natural insect repellent became a problem—either they were not really effective, or they had an offensive aroma, or they claimed to be “natural” and were NOT. My husband and his local buddies gave me a challenge to formulate something truly natural. There were many “half successful” trials, but after studies with entomologists, global indigenous people’s remedies and also a short stint with the perfume industry, my local challengers had to finally admit defeat!

In the meantime, travelers to other countries, including missionaries in Guatemala, hikers in Alaska, a daughter in Africa and a brother in Indonesia, all reported back positive results. Neighbors started putting money in the mailbox for a bottle and then a manager of a local store who heard about it said, “If you can get product liability insurance, I’ll sell your EVADA-BUG.” When the local WHOLE FOODS MARKET called, out of the blue requesting the product, I figured I should probably start a company.

Subsequently, customer demand for other products added four more to Naturally Charleston’s product list, and now the current list of natural products is as follows:
