"It started with a bite on the cheek. Literally, a mosquito bit me on the cheek while working in the garden with my mother. I bruise like a banana and I didn’t want a huge red mark on my face." - Iyinoluwa Omishope, CEO of It Comes Naturally
After heeding her mother's advice, Iyinoluwa sought a natural solution to the bite to avoid irritating her sensitive skin. She put mint from the garden on her face to reduce the swelling and irritation. After seeing the success of the mint she knew that she could make something natural to repel the mosquitoes as well. She found that the majority of repellents sold in stores are full of toxic chemicals and artificial preservatives. Iyinoluwa, like nearly 50% of Americans have sensitive skin and are very selective their choice of topical products and especially repellents. They need to be gentle but at the same time they must work, which is why she created the all natural insect repellent. This product is a DEET- free, non-toxic, 100% natural solution with 100% efficacy against ticks and 80% efficacy against mosquitoes. The repellent gives you the freedom to reclaim your summer days and feel more secure when enjoying the great outdoors. We have also created a full line of natural skincare products with quality ingredients that are safe for your skin and for the environment.

We have to do better and we can, that's why It Comes Naturally has taken on the social mission to reduce the amount of insect related death worldwide.
