Why you need an insect repellent bracelet

Why you need an insect repellent bracelet

We all know about applying our insect repellent sprays and lotions, being aware of our environment, covering up etc, but why might we need an insect repellent bracelet?  There are various reasons, although if you are super attractive to insects, or going somewhere high risk, it’s important to view a bracelet as an enhancement and back up to the protection already provided by your clinically proven insect repellent.

Convenience: Insect repellent bracelets are convenient to use, especially in outdoor settings where applying traditional repellent creams or sprays might be less practical or cumbersome.

No Skin Contact: Some people prefer using repellent bracelets because they don't want to apply insect repellent directly onto their skin. This can be especially important for those with sensitive skin or concerns about chemical exposure.

Long-Lasting Protection: Depending on the type of bracelet and its ingredients, bracelets can provide protection for several hours, offering continuous defence against insect bites.

Portability: Insect repellent bracelets are lightweight and easy to carry, making them ideal for outdoor activities like hiking, camping, or gardening where you might encounter insects.

Kid-Friendly: Repellent bracelets can be a good option for children who may not tolerate traditional insect repellent applications well. They are typically designed to be safe and suitable for use by kids.

Odour and Chemical Concerns: Some people prefer the mild scent of repellent bracelets compared to the stronger smell of traditional insect repellents.

Non-Invasive: Unlike sprays or lotions, repellent bracelets do not leave any residue on your skin or clothing. This can be beneficial for those who prefer a more discreet form of protection.

It's important to note that effectiveness can vary depending on the specific brand and formulation of the insect repellent bracelet. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper use to ensure the best protection against insect bites. 

Introducing our new incognito® Lightweight Natural Insect Repellent Bracelet with Refillable Capsules

As the warmth of summer invites us outdoors, embarking on adventures amidst nature becomes irresistible. To accompany your outdoor escapades, we are thrilled to introduce the latest addition to the incognito® family – the wooden-bead insect repellent bracelet with refillable capsule. Crafted with sustainability and efficacy at its core, this versatile accessory offers both style and protection against pesky insects.

Key features:

  • Sustainable design: Handcrafted from carbon-capturing wooden beads, our incognito® bracelet is not only eco-friendly but also serves as a fashion-forward statement piece, aligning with your values of sustainability and style.
  • Refillable capsule: Nestled within the bracelet's central clasp lies a refillable repellent capsule, providing localized protection against mosquitoes, midges, horseflies, and other biting insects for up to an impressive 18 days (432 hours). Infused with high-grade insect repellent oils including java citronella, lemon eucalyptus, and peppermint oil, this capsule ensures effective repelling of insects.
  • Enhanced protection: The incognito® bracelet not only reduces your attractiveness to insects but provides extra protection, especially for those highly attractive to insects or in high-risk areas, alongside our clinically proven incognito® insect repellent spray, lotion, roll-on, or sunblock, offering high-strength protection during outdoor excursions.
  • Family-friendly: Available in two sizes (medium and large) and suitable for ages 3 and above, our incognito® bracelet ensures that every member of the family can indulge in outdoor activities without the nuisance of insect bites.

How it works:

The incognito® insect repellent bracelet comes with two capsules, which slowly release fragrance, each designed to last around 18 days of continuous use.  Changing the capsule is as easy as a gentle push with a pen or similar object. Simply swap out the capsule when needed to ensure ongoing protection against mosquitoes and other insects. The bracelet is made sustainably, and is designed to be worn on the wrist, one of the areas mosquitoes target the most.

The incognito® insect repellent bracelet comes in two sizes, medium and large, with a small due to be released later this year. It is suitable for use worldwide, wherever biting insects are prevalent, and for various outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, fishing, gardening, picnics, and BBQs.

Wear the incognito® bracelet as needed, then store it in the biodegradable bag provided to keep the natural repellent fresh. Attach it to clothing, bags, belts, or backpacks for added convenience, and replace with a new capsule when the fragrance wears off. You can order your  incognito® refill capsules here.

For enhanced protection, the incognito® bracelet can be used in conjunction with any of the incognito® natural biocide products, offering top-to-toe total protection against mosquitoes and other biting insects.
