Good Riddance, founded by Jeannie during her family’s travels around Australia, crafts DEET-free insect repellents that stand the test of time and the tropics. Her two boys, being “mozzie magnets”, prompted the quest for a gentler and effective repellent. After intensive research and testing, including local fishermen and hotspots like Kakadu, the brand’s repellents have been clinically proven to protect against mosquitoes, midges, and sandflies for up to four hours.
Their secret? Good Riddance’s cream-based repellents, infused with a unique blend of essential oils, shea butter, and beeswax, encapsulate the actives, ensuring extended protection. Besides its efficacy, this repellent cares for your skin, offering a moisturizing and luxurious feel, free from DEET, Picaridin, or OLE.
Responsibility is at the heart of their operations:
- Eco-Conscious Packaging: Their recyclable tubes can degrade in less than 10 years without forming microplastics.
- Commitment to Nature: They’ve joined the “1% for the Planet” initiative, donating a portion of sales to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy, amounting to over $37,000 in contributions so far.
- Local First: All ingredients and packaging materials are sourced from Australian suppliers, ensuring quality while bolstering local industries.
- Trustworthy Production: With an APVMA-certified manufacturing facility, Good Riddance guarantees unparalleled product quality.
Good Riddance now operates from Melbourne, maintaining its family-owned touch with 13 dedicated members. They offer not just repellents but peace of mind, ensuring that you can fully enjoy the outdoors, safeguarded by nature’s best.
