Let me get this out of the way first: I love Ban Total Cooling Body Cloths. They are terrific in hot, humid weather (a typical Washington summer) and a blessing to have along when I travel to India.
The second ingredient in Ban Total Cooling Body Cloths is denatured alcohol, so it cools through the evaporation of the alcohol. But then there’s its patented PowderSilk™ Technology, which leaves behind a translucent, superfine powder so imperceptible that I can’t feel it. PowderSilk™ Technology must be a Japanese thing: Japan’s KAO Corporation acquired the Ban name, and the cloths are made in Japan. DHC has a similar product.
I use Ban Total Cooling Body Cloths where I tend to perspire: around the hairline, the nape of the neck, the armpits, and underneath the breasts. I feel comfortable for the rest of the day.
Ban Total Cooling Body Cloths come 10 to a package, but since they’re perforated, you can tear the cloths in half and get 20 uses per package. It comes in 4 different fragrances: Restore, Invigorate, Energize, and Enliven. I’ve seen various prices for Ban Total Cooling Body Cloths, but Ban’s website helpfully provides sponsored listings which allow you to compare prices from different sellers.
