"I am so excited about your Alpenglow Insect Repellant. My daughter went to a Bible Camp with a group of kids from our church in the interior of Alaska by the Yukon. We'd been told specifically not to send any natural insect repellant b/c the Alaskan mosquitos aren't like California mosquitos and they bite right through the natural stuff. They recommended 98% deet repellant. I've seen deet melt a rubber truck’s floor matt and CD case. I found your insect repellant online and was hesitant that it would work but the Pastor called me and said my daughter was the only one without even one bite! She said it worked amazingly well. I admit I was skeptical it would work, wondering if the testimonials were made up by employees or whatnot, but so pleased was I, I just had to let y'all know! Thank you x 100! My gorgeous girl came home with a clean complexion while all her friends came back with lots of acne - I'm wondering if this is also a result of the natural oils in Alpenglow?"

"I've been used your insect repellant and cottonwood balm for the last 12 years, after a trip to Alaska. They are amazing!"
Carol V., St. Petersburg, FL
"While in Alaska hiking our guide let us use your insect repellant and gave us a sample of cottonwood balm. I have never had repellant work that well and I love the balm! Had to buy more.
Renee Y., Ponca City, OK
"My family and I stayed at the Kachemak Bay Wilderness Lodge. The staff let us borrow their insect repellent during our stay and it worked great!"
Nichole Y., Denver, CO
"I used your insect repellant in Denali and I worked like a charm. Works well at home in the East too."
Samuel K., New York, NY
"I was totally skeptical about Alaska's Best Insect Repellant but I forgot my go-to Deet and found this at a store before my rafting & backpacking trip in the mosquito infested Brooks Range. Two days in, all members of our trip were using your repellant as it worked better than deet and Off. I could not be more impressed! You saved our butts! "
Jason K., Brookline, MA
"I've used ONLY this amazing natural repellant for years! It really works.
Thank you so much for making products I trust."
Gretchen S., Healy, AK
"My 2 children love your bug repellent. They remind me to put it on because
it works so well on them. There were days we would limit outdoor time before
finding your amazing repellant as the skeeters were so bad the kids would
need benadryl to fall asleep at night. Not anymore! Thank you."
Amy I., Nome, AK
"Last summers trip to Alaska was accompanied by the worst mosquito hatch in like, EVER (as reported in the newspaper) and I grew up in Michigan, which was never hurting for mosquitos. I spent the week fishing in multiple locations one of which was deep in the forest on the Kenai. I had the opportunity to use your insect repellent oil for a few days, basically to survive. Well, it worked beyond belief!!!! I had to apply it rather regularly, but I didn't mind because it felt and smelled nice. If I didn't have your repellant I would've either died of DEET intoxication or mosquito bites."
Paul D., Santa Ana, CA
"A guide at the Kachemak Bay Wilderness Lodge shared some of the insect repellent with us while on a hike and it was FANTASTIC! Had to have some of my own. "
Deborah S., Seattle, WA
"I bought the insect repellent at Northface Lodge in Denali National Park in June. My friend used a DEET product and had about 100 bites on her. I used your product and zero bites. I also used it back in Connecticut and again, no bites on me or my 2 year old grandson. It's a really good, safe product."
Judith K., Fairfield, CT
"Discovered your insect repellent 3 years ago and have not used anything else since. I was looking for a repellent without all the nasty chemicals, like DEET, and one that was not tested on animals. Tall order!! I have been more than pleased with your product. Even though the mosquitoes have been a nightmare here in Alaska this year, I have received only a couple of bites. The bugs will not even land on me - they seem to hate the smell. I live part of the year in Mexico where mosquitoes carry dengue fever - I totally trust the product against these guys also. Anyone looking for protection for their children that is gentle, safe and works, is going to love this stuff!"
Doris S., Sterling, AK
"I have friends and family visiting us in Alaska all summer. Someone left a bottle of your insect repellent and I noticed it was deet free. I stopped using deet products after it melted my sunglass arms. What does it do to our bodies? I have been looking for any repellent that is deet free AND works. I tried your repellent and it works great! "
Matt C., Soldotna, AK
"Hello from the Yukon River, just a little story… My office window has no screen, I poured a little of Alaska’s Best Insect Repellant onto the wooden window sill and the mosquitoes will not come close. It is amazing! Serious bug dope. I love it and I love the smell. Works not only on skin, but this too. Simply amazing. Thank you."
Judi M., Emmonak, AK
"Alaska’s Best Insect Repellant WORKS! The bugs have been crazy this summer. Not one mosquito lands on me! Incredible."
Gay T., Wasilla, AK
"We have been using the Insect Repellent for the last couple of weeks and LOVE it. And it works! Thank you."
Penny F., Kotzebue, AK
“We were really skeptical about a natural insect repellant working effectively. I can’t say enough good things about your bug repellant after a week of backpacking in Denali in June. No need to ever buy deet again. Thank you for a healthy product that really works.”
Leslie K., Brooklyn, NY
“A friend purchased your insect repellent in Blue Ridge, GA and we tried it one evening in her yard...no mosquitos came near us!! Thanks for a wonderful product!”
Jane M., Tucker, GA
“The mosquito repellant works great. I especially love your skin care.”
Bertha C., Fort Yukon, AK
“You should definitely suggest to customers to use the insect repellant on their dogs. One bottle lasted us all summer for our family of 4 – that is two people, two border collies! Thanks for keeping us bite-free.”
Fritz P., Sausalito, CA
“I am so happy to have found an effective and gentle bug dope that I can use on my young children. Whenever it’s buggy outside they come running back inside asking for more of that “stuff from Alaska”. It lasts for hours. I will never look elsewhere!”
Paula D., Portland, OR
“Susan, I LOVE your products! This is my 3rd or 4th order from you now and I'm so excited to try new products with each order! Your soaps and cottonwood balm are absolutely wonderful! I have never had anything work to stop itchy bug bites or cuts as well as this stuff! It's truly a wonderful product! We've recently moved from California to Montana and the mosquitos here are just terrible – your insect repellant really works, wow. Thank you so much for making such wonderfully-working good-for-my-skin products!!”
Erika T., Billings, MT
"The blackflies were the worst this summer I've seen in years. My two young children were getting hammered until we found Alpenglow deet-free bug dope. Even during sweaty soccer practice or fishing on our lake, the stuff is amazingly effective at keeping the insects from biting. My kids don't mind wearing it and I don't mind putting it on them! Thank you for making our summers more pleasant."
Mary C., Big Lake, AK
"I spend my summer seasons doing botany field work in remote locations in the interior of Alaska. I've spent years 'being one' with mosquitos - making transects with them in my ears, eating them in my food, sleeping with them in my tent - because I refused to apply harmful chemicals to my skin and I couldn't find an effective natural repellant. Alpenglow's insect repellant changed my life. This stuff works!"
Timmy L. Portland, OR
"I purchased Alaska’s Best Insect Repellent from Susan while at a farmers market visiting Homer. She was so down to earth and kind. I was very pleased with the repellent so was thrilled when we were able to try some of the other products. We are very pleased with everything we have purchased. Thank you."
Karen B., Lander, WY
"I love the smell of Alaska's Best Insect Repellent so much I use it as a massage oil. I know it's good for me and my skin. It kept the nasty biters from touching my skin all summer long so I couldn't be happier."
Rachael M., Eagle, ID
"Thank you for your wonderful insect repellent. I cannot believe how well it works. My husband and I went hiking after a rain and literally walked through swarms of mosquitoes and not one landed on us. I am so impressed I've been telling everyone about it."
Lorinda K., Detroit, MI
"I love the insect repellent not only for its effectiveness but also for the fragrance....would it be a safe and effective product to apply to horses? I'm not at all a big fan of regular insect repellent and it also sends me into a sneezing frenzy. Alaska's Best is wonderful!"
Cathy B., Mount Wolf, PA
"To tell you the truth, I was skeptical. I've used Campmor 100% DEET for years. I use your soap, so I tried your insect repellent. I spent a month in Florida, by the beaches and the inland swamps. Lots of bugs. But they didn't even land on me. It was like I had a magic shield around me. And no DEET. Thank you for a wonderful product. You have a convert."
