Title: Water resistant sunscreen and insect repellant towel

Abstract: A single-use disposable applicator for applying sunscreen and insect repellent to the skin is a non-woven, woven or porous fibrous material wipe that is saturated with a composition containing a waterproof sunscreen agent and an insect repellent. A film forming agent and solvent may also be present. When rubbed over the skin, the wipe provides a thin, non-greasy film that provides protection against UV absorption and insect repellent properties. The sunscreen and insect repellent combination contained in the wipe has an SPF factor between 2 and 50 and is long lasting and water resistant, which makes it ideal for use during hot or humid weather conditions.
