Good Riddance Insect Repellent offers a range of natural, DEET-free insect repellents designed to get you back outside, without the nasty chemicals and the pesky bites!
Our cosmetic chemist, Jeannie Lynch, developed the Good Riddance Insect Repellent range to protect her family from the bites while living in tropical Darwin. She was concerned about the toxic effects of conventional insect repellents so decided to research and develop a natural alternative. There aren’t many insect repellent creams out there, but there’s a reason why we decided to do things a little differently!
Our insect repellent cream base is rich with shea butter and beeswax. This helps prevent the essential oils from evaporating so you don’t need to reapply as often. It also provides a physical barrier against those pesky midges and sandflies!
Our flagship product, Good Riddance Tropical contains a blend of essential oil actives that give it a fresh, vibrant citrus aroma with a woody undertone and notes of Australian natives.
Following the success of our Tropical range, we developed the Good Riddance Sensitive range as a safe, natural insect repellent for babies, pregnant women and people with sensitive skin. Good Riddance Sensitive is the only insect repellent on the market specifically designed for sensitive skin. This unique product has a fresh, sweet floral aroma with herbaceous base notes and a hint of vanilla.
Best of all, our entire range was developed in conjunction with Top End fishermen, which means it has been tested in some of the toughest conditions in Australia, including Kakadu and Shady Camp.
But that wasn't enough - we wanted to prove that our product could stand up against any DEET-filled product on the market. In 2018 we began the lengthy process of having our insect repellents registered with the APVMA. This process included extensive clinical testing in the lab and the field to ensure the products worked, were safe to use and were shelf stable. In 2020, both the Good Riddance Tropical and Sensitive ranges were approved for sale in Australia as insect repellents.
The Good Riddance range also includes our Rescue Balm - the perfect handy little helper for when the bugs catch you by surprise! This easy to apply balm has antibacterial properties and is designed to soothe insect bites, cuts, scrapes and other skin irritations. The base of the balm is rich with vitamin E to promote skin repair.
And for those looking to scent their homes naturally, our Good Riddance Tropical essential oils are available as a 100% pure essential oil blend and natural soy & coconut wax candles.
Australian Made, Natural, Clinically Tested and Safe.
