Geraniol Mosquito & Insect Repellent Wristband
Geraniol was discovered, tested and patented by the University of Florida. Department of Entomology, who tested many thousands of compounds and found that specific molecules of Geraniol demonstrated broad based insect repelling capabilities. Testing by the University of Florida confirmed that Geraniol is an excellent insect repellent and is far superior to citronella as well as many products containing DEET.
The active ingredient is encapsulated into the plastic matrix and is given off as a vapor so no liquid chemical touches the skin. The vapor shield repels insects several feet away, before they land. The wristbands do not contain DEET or any other chemical pesticides. Geraniol, the active ingredient, is considered to be GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) by the EPA and does not require registration. This is particularly important when considering how to protect children from mosquitoes.
Each Wristband is Effective for up to 120 hours when kept in their provided re-sealable container between uses. Storing in the plastic storage pot in which it is packaged will extend its life. Reuse and store the wristband as often as needed to enjoy maximum usage.
The wristband was designed and formulated to protect children. The wristband has breakaway feature for added safety. This eliminates the danger of a child getting caught and not being able to break free. If placed in the mouth, there is no liquid chemical to ingest. For infants, we recommend that the wristband be attached to strollers or carriages, out of their reach.
