Each year, more than a billion people are infected with vector-borne diseases. For billions more, insects are a nuisance that can dictate how we live, work and play.
At LivFul, we envision a world without the threat of bites from annoying or deadly insects. We have developed a repellent that is DEET free, using nature-inspired active ingredient IR3535®. To create a long-lasting repellent formula, we created STAYTEC™, a patented controlled-release technology that keeps our repellent on the skin where it can protect for 14 hours.
Our repellent is safe for everyone in the family over two months old. Not only does it keep mosquitoes away, but it also prevents them from biting flies, ticks, fleas, sandflies and lice.
Hogan Bassey grew up in Nigeria and had several bouts of Malaria before age 10. Motivated to change his situation, he created his own repellent in his bathroom from simple household products. Only later did he learn that repellents already existed – he just didn’t have access to them. As he grew up, he realized that this lack of access was all too common in the global healthcare industry. He founded LivFul with a vision to change that.
Starting with a breakthrough insect repellent, LivFul’s portfolio has expanded to include a range of products focused on preventing and controlling the infection. Hogan’s vision has attracted a globally experienced leadership team that shares his passion to bring products to the market in such a way that all people have access to them, not just the wealthiest billion.
