BODYGUARD® was founded in 2019 by Stephanie Venier Dargent and Celia Nicolosi, both experts in the field of perfume and manufacturers of skin protection products.
"As business owners and frequent travellers we observed a reduced use of mosquito repellents all over the world, despite a real and rapidly growing risk of diseases (dengue fever, chikungunya, malaria, etc.)
The problem appeared to be that products that offered high protection are unpleasant to use and the nice 'natural' products containing essential oils were not effective enough, or suitable for young children or breastfeeding mums".
"An obvious alternative was needed, a repellent that was both efficient, suitable for the entire family AND a pleasure to use. The BODYGUARD® concept was born, a fragranced Anti Mosquito that consumers could enjoy wearing as part of their everyday routine."
Blending fragrance with an active repellent required all Stephanie & Celia's skills, three further business partners and two years of research and trials. BODYGUARD® was launched in 2021... the world's first collection of Fragranced Anti Mosquito.
The very special process of creating a fragranced anti mosquito is so innovative, Stephanie and Celia have a registered patent for their revolutionary formula.
BODYGUARD® exclusively launched in the Summer of 2021 across France with Apothical Pharmacies.
