The PTPA seal indicates that all three forms of Zevo On-Body products, including lotion, pump spray and aerosol spray, have passed a rigorous testing and approval process from parents nationwide. Parent Tested Parent Approved engages members of its community of over 250,000 parents to provide unbiased, authentic product testing to help consumers make smart, informed purchasing decisions for their families.

“Major thanks to Parent Tested Parent Approved for this incredible recognition. We’re elated to have the support and trust from families across the U.S.,” said Chetan Parekh, Vice President & General Manager of Zevo at Procter & Gamble. “We developed the innovative Zevo On-Body product line with families in mind and after listening to thousands of consumers, we created an insect repellent solution that provides feel-good 8 hour protection against mosquitoes and ticks for the entire family.”

Zevo recently conducted a 2023 survey and learned that the majority of the population (71%) suffer from a fear of bugs2 – or what Zevo has dubbed “bugxiety.” The top reason individuals report having bugxiety is for fear of bites and stings (64%).3 With Zevo On-Body, you can experience complete protection against mosquitoes and ticks for up to 8 hours. The active ingredient in Zevo On-Body, IR3535®, is odorless and non-greasy. Unlike many traditional bug repellent products, IR3535® is inspired from a naturally occurring amino acid and does not leave your skin feeling greasy or sticky. Zevo On-Body can be used on your face and body, when used as directed.

“Our seal of approval is a powerful symbol of trust and credibility for millions of families,” said Sharon Vinderine, Founder and CEO of Parent Tested Parent Approved. “We know that parents are more likely to make a purchase based on the recommendations of others, and our trusted and recognized seal allows families to distinguish award-winning products from other brands in an ultra-competitive market with endless choices.”

The products are available for a retail price of $9.99 and can be found at the stores you know and love including Walmart, Target, The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Kroger, Meijer and more.
