Nimble's founder, Von, came up with the idea when his sister told him how hard it was to wash baby bottles safely.
When 91% of 1000 parents surveyed on behalf of Nimble said they were worried about the contents of cleaning products, & with a limited number of brands addressing this, Von used his background at Unilever & as a chemist to create plant-based products that contain no harsh or toxic chemicals, & crucially, clean effectively.
Our first product, the Milk Buster baby bottle cleaner was developed from scratch and is patented in the EU. All our products (incl. surface cleaners and laundry range) are developed for sensitive skin, using allergen-free and plant-based ingredients, UK made, never tested on animals and Vegan Society-certified.
With an average rating of 4 stars on our core product lines, Nimble has won 20 product & business awards & has been on BBC's Dragons’ Den & The Customer is Always Right.
The Global Household Cleaning Products market is worth ~$235bn & eco brands are growing 5X faster than traditional 'white bottle' brands. Investment will allow us to explore new product categories, enter more UK supermarkets & EU markets, scale our D2C business and expand our product range.
Nimble is kind to little ones, to parents, & to the planet. We're on a mission to become one of the leading brands in Baby & Kids home and personal care in Europe. We hope you’ll join us.
