We are a small family operated business. Use of European inspired essential oil blends was and remains well engrained in our daily lives for health, protection and cleaning. We have been using different recipes to avoid biting insects, using different formulas for head lice, mosquitos and black flies and, tick deterrents.
We raise Wired Fox Terriers (Fox Terriers Patch Hill) in Lac-Brome Quebec, an area considered endemic for ticks, and wanted to avoid applying any commercial or veterinary supplied tick products on our breeding females, either during their gestation or lactation or on our puppies below 12 weeks. We are still proponents of veterinary supplied treatments as they cover a wide range of potential internal and external parasites.
PROBLÉMATIQUE is what we used on ourselves and our children. Something natural, spontaneous and topical, to stop the ticks from wanting to attach or feed on us. We quickly realized how very effective the product was and how it remained active on our dogs after repeated applications. The blending of fractionated coconut oil with the selected essential oils gives the product an exotic feeling and texture. Made with quality human grade ingredients its use poses no threat or risk to the dogs or their masters.
Simples Solutions is currently making use of specialised professional services to have PROBLÉMATIQUE approved and registered with the PMRA (Pest Management Regulatory Agency) of Health Canada. This is a long, expensive and arduous process that is ongoing and progressing. This means that we cannot claim that our product is effective, nor can we state that our product is a repellent or deterrent until proven scientifically, in vivo, with humans and dogs using live ticks. Add to this a long list of tests and justifications for each ingredient and the product as a whole. We respect these regulations and accept the inherent difficulties of the process that is filled with precautions. We understand that their role is to protect Canadians against the consequences that false claims may have. PROBLÉMATIQUE is thus currently only a Natural Outdoor Synergy to be discovered.
