New OFF!(R) Clip-On(TM) Mosquito Repellent Helps Protect Outdoor Time in New, Spray-Free Application

RACINE, Wis., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- More women are turning to the outdoors for an everyday oasis from daily stress. According to the recent OFF! (R) Clip-On(TM) Mosquito Repellent Survey(1), nearly nine in ten women say they are likely to spend more time outdoors this year compared to last year, but more than half of women admit they've actually avoided outdoor activities due to the presence of mosquitoes. To protect women's personal time outdoors, SC Johnson introduces new OFF! Clip-On Mosquito Repellent, a personal, odorless mosquito repellent device that provides head-to-toe protection, without spraying anything on the skin.

"More and more women tell me that they need to step back from their daily routine and recharge," said Jennifer Louden, Life Guide and author of The Woman's Comfort Book. "A quiet spot outdoors is the ideal place to get refreshed. You'll be amazed how energized you feel just spending a little time in nature without any interruptions."

Though their outdoor retreats are interrupted by buzzing, biting and other pesky behavior, many women don't use bug sprays due to the smell or the way they feel on their skin. OFF! Clip-On Mosquito Repellent allows women to step outside without applying bug spray or worrying about mosquito bites.

"OFF! has always provided powerful protection against mosquitoes," said Kelly Semrau, SC Johnson Vice President of Global Public Affairs and Communication. "Now SC Johnson also offers spray-free mosquito protection. With new OFF! Clip-On Mosquito Repellent, women can take control over mosquitoes and their skin to find the peace of mind they seek."
