Fun, stylish protection for every occasion. Parakito mosquito protection band. Worn around the wrist or ankle, this cool and comfy neoprene band comes with two pellets of our proprietary essential oil formula. Easy-to-adjust Velcro fittings work for both kids and grown ups and a wide range of colours and patterns let you blend safety with style. Whether strolling through a forest or snoozing on a sunbed, you and your band will soon be the best of friends. And, if you can’t bear to be apart, pop it by your bed at night.
Our unique blend of essential oils, patented slow-release technology and super-smart product design have helped us become a global leader.
A single pellet fits safe and snug in the mesh pocket on the outside of the band. As the essential oils are released into the air around you, they help to mask the scents of your breath and body, making it harder for mosquitoes to find you.
Super simple, naturally effective.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are PARA’KITO™ products safe for babies and children?
The essential oils in our PARA’KITO™ pellets are safe for even the youngest of skins. However, given little fingers like to put almost everything into little mouths, we recommend that our products are kept out of reach of children under 36 months - so, don’t put a band on a baby but do snap a clip on a baby buggy.
Are PARA’KITO™ products safe for pregnant women?
Yes. The pellets in our bands and clips don’t come into direct contact with the skin so that there is no risk of transcutaneous absorption.
How long do the pellets work for?
Once opened, each pellet lasts for up to 15 consecutive days.
What size are the refillable bands?
Our one-size-fits all band can be adjusted to a circumference from 160mm (kids) to 230mm (adults). Each band is 250mm long, 30mm wide and 3mm thick.
How do I wash the bands and clips?
Hand wash with a mild detergent. Don’t shy away from the white band!

Yes, the bands and the pellets are waterproof.
Do PARA’KITO™ products protect me against other biting insects?

In which conditions can I use PARA’KITO™?

Why do I need to protect against mosquito bites?
At best, mosquito bites are an itchy, unsightly irritation. In certain cases they can cause more severe skin allergies and inflammation reactions.At worst, they pose a real health risk. In certain areas, mosquitoes may be vectors of dangerous diseases such as malaria, dengue or yellow fever which they can pass on to humans when they bite them. Even thought PARA’KITO™ does not offer 100% protection, any way of reducing the incidence of bites is beneficial.
Can I still be bitten whilst using PARA’KITO™ products?
Used correctly, our products will significantly reduce the risk of you being bitten by a mosquito.
