Para'Kito(TM), the Consumer Prize Winning, French Made Natural Mosquito Repellent, Responds to Demand by Expanding Online

PARIS, July 16 /PRNewswire/ --

Following the successful launch of Para'Kito(TM), a natural, extremely long lasting and stylish mosquito repellent wristband in France last year, Evergreen Land Ltd. today announced the launch of a new online store ( ), making Para'Kito(TM) available worldwide for the first time. In 2008, Para'Kito(TM) was recognized by IPSOS, an independent French consumer research company, as the country's preferred natural mosquito repellent.

Now, to meet growing global demands, the website is expected to play a key role in the future sales of Para'Kito(TM). Oliver Partrat, one of the three Evergreen Land Ltd. founding partners, attributes the quick market response to the association of lifestyle elements (colorfully styled wristbands) with cutting-edge patented technology. Mr. Partrat said, "In addition to being natural, long lasting and effective, we also designed our mosquito repellent wristbands to be practical and fun to wear. We wanted to make sure they were usable by adults and children alike in all situations such as travel, sports, outdoor and water based activities, in all climates and all conditions. We have applied the same concept to our online store -- keeping a simple, colorful and informative environment."

Mosquitoes are a problem for people around the world. Having existed for over 30 million years, they have had ample time to refine their skills, and are estimated to transmit diseases to over 700 million people annually. One of the principle vectors of attraction to humans is smell. Para'Kito(TM) technology utilizes two distinct patented processes to interfere with this attraction. Firstly, the combination of several natural essential oils with food molecules to improve their stability, and secondly, the impregnation of these oils into the heart of a polymer pellet. Each active pellet will then successfully repel mosquitoes for over two weeks. There is also an ecological benefit to the technology -- mosquitoes are not able to mutate against the complex essential oils spectrum as easily as against a chemical based repellent.

Through the new online store the Company intends to give consumers worldwide the opportunity to deal with this timeless problem in a fun, naturally effective and long lasting way.
