Good Riddance Sensitive Insect Repellent is the only mozzie and midge repellent in Australia suitable for babies over 3 months, during pregnancy and for use on sensitive skin or eczema. It provides clinically proven long lasting natural protection against mosquitoes, midges and sandflies that can carry harmful viruses such as Ross River and Dengue.
The Sensitive repellent range contains a combination of essential oil actives that give the cream a fresh, sweet floral aroma with herbaceous base notes and a hint of vanilla. All of the essential oils were chosen for being safe to apply to babies and for their low irritant profile. That means there is no DEET or Citronella. A natural, low-irritant preservative derived from basil helps to maintain the shelf life of the cream.
The cream base is rich with shea butter and beeswax which nourish the skin and provide an additional physical barrier against midges and sandflies without feeling sticky or greasy. Field testing in Bundaberg found that Good Riddance Sensitive is significantly more effective as a sandfly and midge repellent than DEET.
The cream also helps to hold the essential oils on the skin for longer than a spray, reducing the need for reapplication.
Good Riddance Sensitive Insect Repellent was developed in Darwin and tested in Kakadu as a gentler alternative to nasty DEET products and citronella filled natural repellents. The entire insect repellent range is APVMA registered and has undergone extensive clinical testing at independent labs across Australia to ensure it stands up against any DEET-filled mozzie and midge repellent products on the market.

DO INSECT REPELLENT NEED DEET TO WORK?
While it’s pretty common to hear “nothing but DEET works”, that’s not what the science says. Good Riddance Insect Repellent was developed in Darwin based on the latest scientific research about mozzies and what they hate.
THE PROPRIETARY ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDS
The Good Riddance Tropical and Good Riddance Sensitive essential oil blends were developed through an extensive research and development process in our lab. We scoured through the latest plant chemistry research to identify the most effective essential oils for repelling insects. Then, we spent countless hours trialling different blends to create two blends of oils that smell great and provide lasting protection.
WE'VE MADE IT A CREAM
There aren’t many insect repellent creams out there, but there’s a reason why we decided to do things a little differently! Our cream base is rich with shea butter and beeswax. This helps prevent the essential oils from evaporating so you don’t need to re-apply as often. It also provides a physical barrier against those pesky midges and sandflies! Independent clinical testing of our Sensitive range showed that our cream is significantly more effective at protecting against midges than DEET.
Good Riddance Insect Repellent is a natural, DEET-free cream that has been clinically proven to repel mosquitoes and protect against midges and sandflies. When you’re applying an insect repellent daily to yourself and your kids, it’s pretty hard not to be concerned about the toxic effects of all that DEET.
