What our customers say and the worldwide press say
"Your wonderful Acqua d’Alfresco anti-bug bite spray saved our outdoor Thanksgiving dinner! A late afternoon light rain brought in a mass of those nasty mosquitos! Not wanting to spoil the meal's aroma with the bottle of OFF our host was offering, I dipped into my camera bag and found one of the travel atomizer. I stuffed in a pocket for trecking into the waterfalls.After a quick spritz, everyone was back focused on the wonderful meal. According to the long-time residents, mosquitos are fairly new to Maui and everyone is looking for a natural product that provides protection without poison. Three cheers for Acqua D'Alfresco!"
Kathy Jones (Hawaii).
“Thanks for getting back to me. Alfresco comes highly recommended to me from a friend and I note on your website that the spray is more effective when used in conjunction with the moisturiser - any chance that you could start producing the moisturiser without parabens?
Alfresco Listens! “Hi Annie in UK ! Yes we listened to you our customers..after two years of intense development. We took out all parabens and parafin oil..Alfresco is parafin and paraben free and we kept it as great as ever. It wasn’t easy but it’s easy to try and please our customers.”
"I think a lot of large cosmetic companies could learn from Alfresco."

"Merci pour l'alfresco, le parfum est fantastique et aussi bien comme anti-moustique!"

"Alfresco rescued Robert Redford and his co-star Kirsten Scott Thomas on the set of the movie The Horse Whisperer on location in deepest Montana. Supposedly the Mozzies out there have one hell of an appetite and forced the stars and crew to stay safely inside their trailers. A consignment of Alfresco was quickly flown over and enabled filming to get underway again. The people at Alfresco are awaiting their Oscar nominations..."
