100% natural and DEET-free, this Incognito Insect Repellent contains the maximum amount of Citronella that’s blended with Eucalyptus to make us ‘invisible’ to mosquitoes and other bugs that bite.
This smart Insect Repellent from Incognito contains the highest possible concentration of Citronella that’s safe for human use. The hero ingredient has been blended with Eucalyptus in such a way that mosquitoes cannot sense our natural kairomones. Just as humans are attracted to each other’s pheromones, biting insects detect these kairomones from up to one kilometre away. By cloaking you in a protective veil that masks these kairomones, Incognito makes us invisible, so insects fly on by.

Can a natural insect repellent be as effective as Deet?
Definitely yes! Up until the last century Deet was the strongest active ingredient in insect repellents, but this is no longer the case as the main active in incognito biocidal products, (The purest form of PMD) provides 100% efficacy as clinically proven.
Is incognito a tropical strength mosquito repellent?
Yes incognito® is a tropical strength mosquito repellent and the active ingredient, PMD, is recommended by the CDC, NHS & World Health Organisation for use anywhere in the world including mosquito-borne disease areas? There are only 2 insect repellent actives recommended by these organisations for use in mosquito-disease countries: PMD & DEET although the latter mosquito repellent no longer affords 100% efficacy against all mosquitoes; whereas incognito mosquito repellent is clinically tested to achieve this.
Why is the spray bottle now soft?
Because Incognito now use Sugarcane Plastic which is the most environmentally friendly plastic that is compatible with our formulation. So please don't worry if the bottle is soft, or slightly misshapen, the contents inside are not affected!

It is important to consider whereabouts you are going in the world, and what kinds of mosquitoes you are likely to encounter so you can take the necessary precautions e.g. packing Java citronella washing items in addition to incognito mosquito repellent.
