Making impact


NOBU.GS™: Responsible clothing

At NOBU.GS™, we believe that companies can make a possitive social impact, and our products and business model exemplify this philosophy, with our "Charity" program

Pesticides provide many benefits; however, thorough research and study must be conducted so that they do not create unforeseen and unwanted consequences.

Some repellent products require fogging or spraying, and topical insect repellents can readily come off while bathing or wading through a body of water. Also, many traditional insect-repellent products require disposal of a non-biodegradable container.

A Positive View of the Future

NOBU.GS™ and our partners like Insect Shield technology represents a responsible way to use insect repellent. Insect Shield puts just enough bug protection right where it is needed—around an individual. Insect Shield products repel mosquitoes, ticks, flies, fleas, chiggers, ants and midges (no-see-ums), with only a small amount of long-lasting active ingredient. Compared to spraying, fogging, or topical insect repellents, Insect Shield products can help reduce overall pesticide and repellent use. Simply put, Insect Shield provides a method of repelling insects with many advantages.


Innovative Thinking, Responsible Management and a Problem-Solving Attitude

Only a small amount of permethrin is used in each NOBU.GS™ garment, and it is bound tightly to the fabric fibers. Independent laboratory tests show that the active ingredient in Insect Shield apparel lasts though 70 launderings. Similar to the dye in colorfast clothing, the Insect Shield active ingredient is designed to stay in the garment.Is the Insect Shield manufacturing process responsible, too? Yes. The Insect Shield process utilizes a proprietary system designed for no loss of active ingredient into the environment.​

NOBU.GS™ manufacturing processes and procedures are designed to be clean, efficient and contained, and our facilities utilize programs that support and promote waste recycling and energy efficiency. The innovative thinking represented by Insect Shield products a
