The BALLISTIC Difference

The insect repellent market is filled with solutions containing harsh chemicals or less than effective natural repellent ingredients.

If you perform an internet search, you are going to find hundreds of questions and hundreds of answers about the value, ratings, and safety of insect repellents - insect repellent for your home, insect repellent machines, insect repellent for skin, insect repellent plug-ins, insect repellent cream, insect repellent for kids, etc. You will also discover that picaridin is one of the two highest recommended ingredients in government websites, various articles, numerous studies, and by actual users.

The simple fact is that picaridin is less harmful, yet just as potent and effective as other highly-ranked ingredients. Picaridin is odorless, less greasy than others, not harmful to equipment, and doesn’t carry the possibility of side effects such as rashes and irritation. Picaridin at 20% performs as well as its equally recommended ingredient, DEET, at the same and even higher concentrations. Picaridin is simply a better option.

So, what really is the Ballistic Difference?

Ballistic is a picaridin-based insect repelling spray produced in the United States with ingredients sourced from both the United States and Germany. Ballistic contains 20% Picaridin, a synthetic compound created to resemble the natural compound found in plants used to make black pepper. Read more here >>. Picaridin does not kill insects, rather reduces their likeliness of biting by blocking them from sensing their target...which is YOU.

Ballistic is owned by a Military Veteran, who has personally used this exact insect repellent in austere environments with heavy concentrations of the insects we aim to deter; specifically ticks, mosquitos, black flies, and other biting insects. Not only is Ballistic brought to you by a Military Veteran, but the company’s objective is to give back to Veteran organizations fighting vector-borne and water-borne illnesses.
