Mouka Company has launched an innovative range of insect repellents tagged Mouka Mozzi Inspect Repellant, saying the new product is in line with its mission of adding comfort to life.

Speaking, the Executive Officer of Mouka, Raymond Murphy said the launch of the new insect repellant foam which creates a protective halo from mosquitoes, is the company’s contribution towards the global campaign against malaria.

According to Murphy, Mouka Mozzi also provides protection from bedbugs, mould, bacteria spores, spiders, cockroaches and dust mites. With each application, a consumer can enjoy 24 hours protection for up to three months which is not possible with insecticides.

Guest Speaker, a lecturer from the Department of Pharmacology, Therapeutic and Toxicology at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Dr Omoniyi Kayode Yemitan, who conducted the chemical evaluation, efficacy and toxicological assessment of Mouka Mozzi, endorsed the products as safe for all members of the family including pregnant women and young children.

Yemitan explained that the active ingredient in Mouka Mozzi is extracted from plants which make it non-hazardous for humans.
Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Olajide Idris, who was represented by the state Malaria Elimination Programme Manager, Dr. Abimbola Osinowo, said the state government has renewed its commitment to tackling malaria using a multidirectional approach including environmental management and integrated vector control for prevention of malaria.
adding that Mouka has taken a step in the right direction with the production of its repellents.

“As you are all aware, malaria is endemic in Lagos State and it poses a major challenge to the state as it impedes human development. It is both a cause and consequence of underdevelopment and remains one of the leading causes of morbidity in the state,” the Commissioner said.

He further said: “The present administration has renewed the commitment of the state government to tackle the scourge of malaria using a multi-pronged approach including; environmental management and integrated vector control for the prevention of malaria; effective diagnosis and appropriate treatment of malaria cases; and monitoring and evaluation with emphasis on operational research and the use of its results for evidence based programming.”

Chairman, Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association(NMA) Dr Saliu Olugbenga Oseni, who was represented by an executive member of the group, Dr. Sodipo Oluwajimi, expressed admiration for Mouka’s repellent’s indigenous manufacture, adding that the NMA would be willing to endorse the innovation as it joins Mouka in its resolve to tackle the malaria scourge.
