Infected mosquitoes are spreading malaria, chikungunya, Dengue fever and Zika around the world. Ticks are delivering the debilitating symptoms associated with Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
Although medical science can sometimes treat the symptoms of these dreaded diseases, the founders of LivFul wondered, “What if we could stop mosquitoes and other insects from biting?”
LivFul develops safe, innovative, accessible products to help people live life to the fullest potential. Our mission is to save 200,000 lives each year and transform communities around the world with localized micro-manufacturing facilities that allow people to prosper and thrive.
In response to the suffering and death that result from insect-borne disease, we created AKIVA, a DEET-free, nature-based insect repellent that uses a controlled-release technology. It’s the perfect combination of nature and science.
Traditional repellents are absorbed into the skin too soon. AKIVA stays on the skin where it creates a no-fly zone for 16+ hours. That means fewer applications and extra hours of work and play.
AKIVA is rub-off resistant, but not sticky. It’s skin-friendly, virtually scent-free and it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a repellent.
AKIVA guards against bites from mosquitoes, flies, fleas, lice, ticks, chiggers and no-see-ums.
We imagine a world where people are protected from biting insects that carry disease. At LivFul, we like to say, “If you don’t get bit, you don’t get sick.”
