We were filming two episodes of my TV show while we were there.  The show is called Reel Bragging Rights and it’s the number 1 fishing show on Sportsman Channel prime time.  I love everything about your stuff.  I love that it’s natural, that it’s safe for my kids or nursing mothers.  I especially love that it lasts so long (I only had to put it on once a day).  I had no idea that the black flies and noseeums we as bad as they were, and out of the entire crew I’m the only one there that didn’t get eaten alive.


This product is amazing and does exactly what it says. I work outdoors all day around animals and it keeps the flies’s off, mosquitoes . It is not greasy or sticky. I highly recommend this. The best part is it is a local company in my town of Overland Park , Kansas

I love working in my yard/garden but until now there was not much “help” against mosquito bites. I’ve been using Proven for several months now. It’s very soft on my skin and it doesn’t have a nasty aggressive smell like DEET products do. Every time I use Proven I’m free of mosquito bites even after working several hours in my yard.
I recommend everyone who lives/works in a mosquitoe-rich environment to give this product a try and see for yourself, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Proven Insect Repellent is the best bug repellent out there today! It is made in America, has natural and non toxic ingredients, and it is odorless and fragrance free. If you like the outdoors in any capacity – camping, biking, beaching, picnicking, hunting, fishing, hiking, or sitting by the pool…this product is a must! My entire family in Virginia has used Proven, and they swear by it. Once you use it, you will too!🏆🥇🥇🥇

There’s nothing more annoying than not getting any sleep because you’re scratching bites all night. Stoked to try it out in one of the most heavily infested areas of the US, I can honestly say I returned to Colorado bite free. 🙌🏻 Thank you so much again @provenrepellent for making our trip possible!

What makes mosquitos hunt me down is a mystery. Even if I was in a group of people, they were looking for me. I don’t get just a little mosquito bite, I get a huge welt from them.

Since I’ve starting using Proven I would have to say that it has worked and protected me against mosquitos and horse flies 99% of the time while up in NY. Now that we are back in Florida, it has protected me from the fire ants and No-see-ums 100% so far. It is also deet free as well as vegan friendly.

Did I mention that it’s made in the USA which I am a big supporter of.

I don’t doubt the effectiveness one bit!

I tested Proven on several occasions and my children did as well when they went out to play. On our land I sprayed my ankles, top of my boots, and socks as well as any other exposed areas with it before I went exploring. I used it on two trips through the tall grass and woods without any issues of ticks or chiggers to bother me. I went out to the land for a third time I made a short trip to a wildlife camera we have there. I didn’t have the repellent with me as I was just planning to dash to the camera and get the photos off of it. When I got back to my truck chiggers were climbing all over me. (If you’ve never experienced chiggers then imagine itching for 5-7 days in all the most uncomfortable places!)

It prevented ticks and chiggers from bothering me while I worked on our property and in the garden. If you are looking for an alternative product that is DEET free to protect you when you are in the garden or enjoying the outdoors then this would be one I would recommend testing out for yourself.

Why Picaridin?

We were determined to find a bug repellent that was both long-lasting and non hazardous for our health. We discovered an ingredient called Picaridin that provides effective yet non-harmful protection from mosquitoes, ticks and other insects. Studies show that 20% Picaridin concentration is equally as effective as higher concentrations of DEET. State of the art dermal route and oral toxicology tests show Picaridin has low acute toxicity and low skin absorption. It is also safe for the environment and poses no risk to fish and other wildlife.

Picaridin offers longer protection against Flies and Ticks than DEET. Proven protects effectively from species carrying not only Zika, Dengue, Malaria, Chikungunya, West Nile, but also tick borne diseases like Lyme disease and Encephalitis (EEE).

Trust Proven for effective protection and use with confidence on the whole family.


Zika: Feel Safely Protected

Effective protection from mosquito species carrying Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya and West Nile virus for 12 hours.

Who we are

We are a family owned American company. As health conscious consumers ourselves, we were frustrated by the available insect repellent offerings: either chemicals or ineffective natural repellents. We didn’t want to choose between the risk of disease and the risk of putting strong chemicals on our bodies, especially our children’s. We were determined to find a bug repellent that was both highly effective and non hazardous for our health. We discovered a patented active ingredient called Picaridin that provides effective protection from mosquitoes, and ticks for 12 hours, and a multitude of other irritating biting bugs.
Thus Proven was born.
