Insect Repellent Product

Hello - We are a relatively new veteran-owned business seeking help. We want to enter the insect repellent market with a product that is exempt from FIFRA regulation. We are therefore looking for either a private label situation or to work with a formulator. Please reach out to us by email at if you can assist.


  • Hello Marky, i have a compound that could be added to a fragrance which then added to a FIRFA exempt formula that will give some good efficacy. Usage is ~0.05% -0.1% and is natural extract produced here in Aus. Would work with eugenol as its emempt for example. I can manufacture a (fragrance) concentrate for you to add to a product such as a gel or spray. 
  • Lavender oil . I usually use lavender flowers to repellent mosquitoes at our deck in the summer time. Smell good and repellent mosquitoes. 
  • @wndlw8 Do you have an email address where we could reach out to you? Ours is

  • @Dtdang Thank you.
  • We also have a benchmark product that we are looking for a formulator to reverse engineer. If anyone is interested please contact us at

  • From our experience one of the best repellents is Lemon-scented Eucalyptus (Corymbia citriodora) .  We produced a simple effective relellant using Corymbia citriodora.

    Well researched, for example, J Am Mosq Control Assoc. 2006 Sep;22(3):507-14.

    PMD, a registered botanical mosquito repellent with deet-like efficacy.
