Ben’s® was originally made by a gentleman named Mark Mowatt in Maine, and he decided to name the insect repellent after his son Ben. Ben’s® joined the Tender Corporation family in 1987 where it has been made in New Hampshire ever since.
Ben’s® Tick & Insect Repellent started with a 100% DEET formula which is the active ingredient recommended by the CDC to repel disease-carrying insects and provide hours of lasting protection.

Today, Ben’s® has a product assortment targeted towards the full range of outdoor consumers, from day hikers to thru hikers, who need protection they can trust. Ben’s® Tick & Insect Repellent is a leading brand in the Outdoor Market, and a trusted protector on any outdoor adventure.
