There are lots of great ideas on indiegogo, but this is the first time we've seen a product that's guaranteed to keep mosquitoes away. invisaband is a microfibre bracelet made with natural geraniol oil that's actually guaranteed to keep mosquitoes away. They offer a full 60 day money back guarantee.
Lotions and sprays are messy and leave you feeling icky. Not to mention the harsh and toxic chemicals, such as DEET, that other products may contain. invisaband is something better. Something natural and non-toxic that can effectively keep mosquitoes away. The active ingredient, geraniol oil, disrupts a mosquito's ability to sense you. Believer it or not, you can become invisible to mosquitoes.
invisaband is made from a microfibre band that you can wear around your wrist, ankle or even attach to your backpack, hat, pant loop or stroller. The adjustable clasp and sizing holes make it one size fits all. Plus, it’s quick and easy to put on.
The unique breathable microfibre design of the band allows for an on going “gradual release” of the active ingredient.
This was important since other materials such as plastic or silicone don’t allow for this “slow release” mechanism. With invisaband, you will get more than 120 hours of mosquito protection from each band. Plus, you will receive a resealable airtight pouch to store them in.
Each package of invisaband comes with five bands that are each reusable for more than 120 hours.
Have you ever wondered why people have been planting geranium flowers in their window sills for generations?
It’s not just because they look pretty. It turns out mosquitoes and other insects don’t like hanging around the geranium flower.
One of the oils that can be extracted from the geranium flower (you guessed it!) is geraniol. Geraniol is a natural essential oil that has been studied to be more effective at keeping mosquitoes away than citronella and in some cases, even DEET!
“It’s the first effective alternative to products containing DEET, the most widely used active ingredient in insect repellents now on the market,” said Jerry Butler, entomologist with University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. “After relying on DEET-based products for more than 40 years, this is a breakthrough that should revolutionize the market.”
Geraniol was granted "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS) status by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 1965.
Other generally regarded as safe substances include things like caffeine, vinegar, calcium, coconut oil, salt and many more. invisaband is made with 30% geraniol oil.
Why should you care?
- invisaband is the next generation of mosquito repellent. With no toxic chemicals, it’s better for you and for the environment.
- It’s quick and easy. Just put on an invisaband and you’re good to go! No more wasting time slathering on sticky lotions or breathing in sprays. No mess. No fuss.
- It’s reusable. The resealable pouch lets you use invisaband for over 120 hours.
- Most importantly, it works. There are many natural repellents on the market today, but few prove to be effective. Geraniol, on the other hand, has been studied for a number of years showing proven efficacy in repelling mosquitoes. The makers are so confident in the effectiveness of invisaband that they're even offering a 60-day, money-back guarantee.
Who is invisaband for?
Don't you hate it when you buy something and it turns out it's not for you? Worse still, you can't get your money back.

If, for whatever reason you're not happy with your invisaband, we'll give you your money back. Just send the package back and get in touch. You have a full 60 days to make sure invisaband is right for you. That's unheard of in the mosquito repellent market.
