The proof really is in the pudding when it comes to a natural insect repellent. During development, our product was rigorously tested by fishermen in Darwin and Kakadu. After launching our product, we quickly found ourselves with thousands of raving customers, but we wanted to take things a step further to prove that we had created the best insect repellent.
We spent over two years putting our Good Riddance range through a series of independent clinical trials to ensure it does what it says it does.
This included multiple rounds of testing against mosquitoes under strict lab conditions to ensure they stand up against any DEET-based product on the market.
We’ve also had the products put through rigorous field tests by a lab in Bundaberg which found that the Good Riddance Sensitive product (which has a slightly thicker cream base) is significantly more effective than DEET at protecting against midges.
In Australia, all insect repellents must be approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). The APVMA is an Australian government regulator who manage the registration of all agricultural and veterinary chemical products in Australia. All insect repellents for human use, including chemical-based products and natural plant-based alternatives, are required by law to be registered with the APVMA before they can be sold in Australia. Products approved by the APVMA have been scientifically assessed as safe and effective.
In 2020, the results of our independent clinical efficacy and safety trials meant that we were able to register both the Good Riddance Tropical and Good Riddance Sensitive insect repellents with the APVMA.
