As health-conscious consumers ourselves, we were frustrated by the available insect repellent options: either toxic DEET-based or ineffective natural repellents. We didn’t want to choose between the risk of disease and the risk of putting harmful chemicals on our bodies, especially our children’s.

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!

Every time I go out to mow the grass the mosquitoes are all over me within seconds.  That doesn’t make for a very fun outing.  I don’t like coming in with bites all over, but I also don’t want to be sticky and smelly from a repellent.  I used Proven Repellent a couple of days ago.  I’m pleased to say, it worked great. The Gentle Scent smells really nice.

We all want to protect our loved ones from diseases, in addition to harsh chemicals.   Why use something dangerous that could soak into your skin and enter the bloodstream.   That is why Proven Repellent is so important. I like using something that will protect me (and loved ones) from disease, biting insects, and chemicals!


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.

Enjoy the outdoors worry-free!



We were determined to find a bug repellent that was both highly effective and safe for our health. We discovered a patented ingredient called Saltidin that provides effective yet non-toxic protection from mosquitoes, ticks and other insects. Studies show that 20% Saltidin concentration is equally as effective as higher concentrations of the toxic chemical DEET. State of the art dermal route and oral toxicology tests show Saltidin, however, has low acute toxicity and low skin absorption. It is also safe for the environment and non-toxic to fish and other wildlife.

Saltidin offers a better protection against 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 Powassan.

Chose Proven if you are health conscious and want to take care of yourself and your family. Proven is Highly Effective and Safe.

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 effective but toxic or non-toxic natural repellents that aren’t effective enough to protect.  We didn’t want to choose between the risk of disease and the risk of putting harmful chemicals on our bodies, especially our children’s. We were determined to find a bug repellent that was both highly effective and safe for our health. We discovered a patented active ingredient called Saltidin (Picaridin) that provides effective protection from mosquitoes, and ticks for 12 hours, and a multitude of other irritating biting bugs.
Thus Proven was born.
