Wonder if you can Live with Sandflies?

You can live with sandflies (AND mosquitoes), comfortably. You don’t even HAVE to have our brilliant natural repellent, but it helps. We have collected years of information and experience with NZ sandflies. We share it with you because we want you to have an amazing time outdoors.

Goodbye Sandfly is a proudly and uniquely New Zealand product. Formulated over a season of guiding canoes on the Dart River outside of Glenorchy in 1999, our guests helped us create a bug repellent that is effective and smells great. It has been NZ’s #1 best selling natural repellent since 2010.  *Aztec data- March 2014

This is a product that we trust because we’ve lived with our two small children in real sandfly country. When you use a bug repellent every day, it HAS to be natural + it HAS to work.

It’s better to know WHERE the sandflies are BEFORE they find you. Being prepared with good clothes and a repellent makes a huge difference.

This Goodbye is SWEET

Sister brands Goodbye Ouch and Goodbye Nits turned ONE in November.



Goodbye Sandfly won the James & Wells Excellence in Marketing Award from Natural Products New Zealand- 2012 (this was top prize in a billion dollar industry!)

One page article in the NZ Herald, December 2011 tells the story of our family and business.

Great products, yes, and far more than that. These products are a gateway to conversations about things that matter. And experiences that make life better.
