With wanderlust season near, locals looking to protect themselves in a sustainable way while on vacation can finally stop the search with the launch of Dr. Fedorenko’s True Organic™ Bug Stick, Sun Stick, and Skin Stick products. The sticks, which are all eco-friendly, are packaged in recyclable paper tubes, and are shipped in disintegrating packing peanuts, made of rice, protecting both your skin and the environment.
Established by Clinical Herbalist and Holistic Naturopath Julia Fedorenko, she was inspired to create the sticks when she found a tick on her son while hiking and couldn’t find effective chemical-free repellents. Since then, the product has become a hit in the Hamptons where Lyme disease is prevalent. Julia created the product line with her mother, dermatologist Dr. Larissa Fedorenko, and a team of scientists.
“As a holistic doctor, I see the effects of tick and mosquito-borne illnesses on my patients,” said Dr. Fedorenko, “I also know the importance of reducing exposure to toxic chemicals, so I created an organic, chemical-free skin care line that protects my family and my patients effectively.”
The sticks contain no toxic chemicals, using a DEET-free formula to help repel ticks and mosquitos both safely and effectively, and are now being packaged with no plastic to help reduce waste, making it a truly earth friendly product! The three variations of the Sticks help prevent bugs, sunburns, and dry skin. They are safe for all skin types, and were never tested on animals.
The Bug Stick costs $26, and Sun and Skin Sticks cost $24. Sticks can be purchased throughout the Hamptons, such as Hamptons Home, Marders in Bridgehampton, and Provisions in Sag Harbor.
All Dr. Fedorenko True Organic skin care products are 100% natural, with certified organic butters and essential oils; no synthetic fragrances or colors; no chemicals or DEET, paraben and phthalate free, dairy and soy free, and gluten free.
