NO, the Skin so Soft is the MAIN repellant, and the other stuff just helps make it sprayable and last a bit longer! (and cut the smell abit also)
I learned of using it when I was in the Army. A corporal told me about it. As he put it "It works if you don't mind smelling like a French whore."
I have used just vinegar and olive oil before. It works for about 2 days before you need to reapply. I have used the Skin So Soft oil (not lotion) with it too mixing equal parts of each. It works a little longer, like 3 days. I have also used olive oil, vinegar and sunscreen on my sheep to keep the sun from fading (the colored sheep) and damaging the wool. If you have a horse that sunfades it will work to keep them dark. You can always add some Skin So Soft to take care of the bugs at the same time.
