We believe being outdoors is good
Goodbye SANDFLY is a natural bug repellent and bite soother that helps you have more fun outdoors.
A proudly and uniquely New Zealand product, formulated over a season of guiding canoes on the Dart River near Glenorchy in 1999, our guests helped us create a bug repellent that is effective and smells great.
This is a product that we trust because we lived with our two small children in real sandfly country on the West Coast of the South Island.
Goodbye SANDFLY has been NZ’s #1 best selling natural repellent since 2010. That’s more than 8 years of NZ trust. *IRI-Aztec data- Total Key Accounts NZ- March 2018
That means comfort for you and your family.
Have more fun than the sandflies do
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 so you can be SANDFLY Savvy.
When you know #hownottodress, you can have an amazing time outdoors, even with bugs, whether you are sharing an evening with friends, or tramping backcountry.
Goodbye is a family run business, shipping from our home in Kerikeri, Northland, New Zealand. Our products can be found in some 700 New Zealand shops, and we also ship from NZ to most places in the world. How to get Goodbye PRODUCTS anywhere in the world.
We’ve been at it for quite awhile, starting as a part-time business in 1999, ten years later, goodbye SANDFLY became a nationwide brand. Not the speediest growth, but we weren’t in a hurry. We were having babies, growing food, and getting outside for adventures. We got more focused when John joined the business in 2010. With his help, Bex was able to add sister brands goodbye NITS and goodbye OUCH. More of the business story, news, awards, PR and product launches.
We are grateful to see years of steady work gain attention. We make 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.
Mainstreaming Quality Natural Products
Our goal is to be part of the “mainstreaming” of quality natural products, not only through offering genuine products, but through education. Now that companies know that you want natural products, there’s a lot of pretty fruit and leaves showing up on the fronts of bottles full of harsh or synthetic chemicals. How do you know what is truly good for you natural and what is the fake stuff?
We believe you shouldn’t have to have a PhD in label reading to discern true products. As often as we can, and as politely as we can, we share what we know. We do this through interactive media, shared knowledge and pure enthusiasm. Our core values are generosity, inclusiveness, respect and stewardship.
