Ben’s brand pump spray repellent contains DEET, which is the most effective tick and insect repelling ingredient ever developed. Ben’s has also replaced the alcohol in their spray with water. Water does not evaporate and does not open the pores. This reduces the need to frequently reapply the spray.
Therefore, Ben’s 30 is an appropriate choice for protecting children and adults. It leaves more insect repellent on the skin so that it fights against biting insects longer.
