Easier and faster to apply than sprays or lotions, Ben's Wipes allow you to control exactly where and how much repellent you apply to your skin. Ben's unique water based formula insures that the repellent will last longer than alcohol based repellents that quickly evaporate from your skin. Ben's 30 Tick Insect Repellent offers protection from ticks and insects that may carry West Nile Virus WNV, Lyme disease, Malaria, Eastern Equine Encephalitis EEE, and other infectious diseases. Providing up to 8 hours of effective protection, Ben's 30's unique formula is made to evaporate slowly so repellent stays on longer with little absorption into the skin. Individually wrapped wipes let you control the amount and location of repellent to apply.
