Description
 
The BugBand towelette is a very handy, easy-to-use method of applying Geraniol insect repellent. The 8-by-8-inch pretreated towelettes have the same protection power as the towelettes in the 15- or 40-count containers.  Easy to use, safe and effective, the towelettes allow for exact application of Geraniol lotion on exposed skin. They are ideal for using around your face or neck without worrying about over-applying.  The towelettes can be folded and stored in the foil container for future use
Technical Specs
  • DEET vs. Geraniol
  • What is Geraniol?
  • Geraniol, the active ingredient in BugBand insect repelling products, is a natural essential oil derived from geraniums. When Geraniol is exclusively formulated with other minimum risk or food-grade ingredients, the resulting insect repellent products are not regulated pesticides when they meet federally established criteria.
  • Geraniol is a biodegradable ingredient that is safe to use and safe for the environment. There is no known toxicity to animals or wildlife.
  • How does Geraniol Repel Insects?
  • Geraniol has a relatively high vapor pressure and gives off a dilute vapor into the air stream which acts as an area repellent. This helps repel insects before they land. The natural tendency of Geraniol to evaporate makes it work as the active ingredient in wristbands, plastic beads, and other BugBand repellent products. It also helps to improve the efficacy of liquid spray Geraniol BugBand repellents.
  • DEET is a Chemical Pesticide.
  • DEET is a synthetic, manufactured chemical that is also known to repel insects. When formulated with any ingredient, even tap water, it is required to be registered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as a pesticide. The National Pesticide Telecommunications Network reports that DEET does not readily degrade in the environment and has a moderate potential to move through soil and into groundwater. It is slightly toxic to fish, birds and aquatic invertebrates.
  • Plastic, Rubber and Paint.
  • DEET is a very good solvent and will melt or cause damage to plastic, rubber and paint. Things like acrylic sunglasses, fishing line, watch crystals, finishes on firearms, paint on trucks, or similar materials can be damaged or destroyed if subjected to DEET-based products.
  • Flammability
  • Some DEET-based products have been found to be flammable, and many manufacturers of flame-retardant garments have issued warnings to their users not to use DEET-based repellents while wearing these flame retardant suits.
