Good Riddance Tropical Insect Repellent is a certified effective natural insect repellent which provides long-lasting, tropical strength protection against mozzies, midges and sandflies.
The Natural Wonders Tropical range contains a combination of pure essential oil actives that give the cream a fresh, vibrant citrus aroma with a woody undertone and notes of Australian natives. 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. The cream also helps to hold the essential oils on the skin for longer than a spray, reducing the need for regular reapplication.
Good Riddance Tropical Insect Repellent was developed in Darwin and tested in Kakadu as a safer, family-friendly alternative to nasty DEET products. 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 product 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.
THEY'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.
