Now you can acquire organic bug repellent and other skin care products when you arrive at our base camp near Armstrong, Ontario. I discovered these products and their developer almost by accident. You see, in recruiting garden project students at Lakehead University, I met an energetic and very bright woman named Karen Kerk-Courtney. She is also the owner and product developer of a skin care products company – Bare Organics – here in Thunder Bay. The product line includes a non-deet “spray on” insect repellent, sun protection, and lip balms.
I use and love the products, and am glad we can offer them for both immediate use by our guests, and as unique “take a gift home” items from the Wilderness North gift shop. Karen has a website that can teach you more about her products: www.bareorganics.ca. I can also tell you more about it in my podcast – Click here to listen in
