A perfect combination of nature, science and gentle ingredients.

Our recipe for powerful protection from insect bites is pretty simple. We looked to nature to find a way to protect the whole family from a natural predator.

AKIVA’s plant-based, timed-release technology makes it different from other repellents. It’s the perfect combination of nature and science.

Traditional repellents are absorbed into the skin, AKIVA stays on your skin where it guards against mosquitoes and other bugs.

AKIVA’s patented technology slowly releases its DEET-free repellent for up to 16+ hours of powerful protection. Fewer applications mean extra hours of work and play – and more money in your pocket.

AKIVA’s Gentle Ingredients

Our recipe for powerful protection from insect bites is pretty simple. We looked to nature to find a way to protect the whole family from a natural predator. Then we selected the best nature-based ingredients to provide a gentle scent and an invisible feel.
