What is Citronella?
Citronella is obtained from the leaves and stems of different species of Cymbopogon; a plant which is more commonly known as lemongrass. Whilst Citronella Oil is a powerful insect repellent, it’s ability to protect you against biting and stinging insects is not the only advantage of using this superb ingredient. The oil produced from Cymbopogon has various uses; Citronella has powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
How Does Citronella Repel Biting And Stinging Insects?
Citronella naturally repels insects such as mosquitoes, midges, sand flies, horseflies, ticks and more. The oil works by preventing the mosquitoes (or other biting/stinging insects) from sensing the kairomones of the individual wearing the citronella containing product. This oil has used for centuries by indigenous peoples of Asia to protect themselves from insects and the diseases they carry. By masking your kairomones with a product such as Citronella, you’re effectively ‘invisible’ and can sneak past mosquitoes without being ‘eaten alive’.
What does Citronella Soap do?
Washing with Incognito citronella soap was shown to alter a person's odor profile, making them more or less attractive to mosquitoes
What time of day do mosquitoes bite most?
There are both daytime and night time biting mosquitoes i.e.mosquitoes which carry insect-borne diseases such as Dengue, Yellow Fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus and Zika bite during the day, whereas Malaria carrying mosquito vectors bite between dusk and dawn. 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.
Is incognito® safe for pregnant women?
Incognito have not done any testing on pregnant women because they believe it is unethical to do so. They recommend doing a patch test as skin can get highly sensitive during pregnancy. Discontinue use and seek medical advice if a skin reaction occurs.
