Why water?

Life on earth would not be possible for us, nor for any other non-human animals or plants, without the access to water. Clean water is one of the most precious things we have on this planet. Of course, everything we consume also has an influence on the groundwater. Especially within the cosmetic industry a lot of unsustainable and non natural ingredients are used, adding further contamination to our eco-systems. We believe it is very important for us as a society to change our mindset and develop a more conscious mindset regarding our precious resources. In order to achieve this we need sustainable alternatives on the market!

Whats the main goals of HYDROPHIL?

One of our main goals is to offer sustainable alternatives for the bathroom. Currently another main goal is our international expansion on all European markets.

What does . . . mean

...waterneutral

Our products are made with minimal water consumption: we use natural ingredients that grow without artificial watering, such as bamboo. Additionally, we only use natural dyes produced without the use of petroleum and chemical additives. The resulting biodegradability means that ihr products do not leave any traces in our drinking our groundwater.

...vegan

Through our actions we want to have a positive impact on our world and not do harm to anyone. That is why our products do not contain any animal products and are not tested on animals.

...fair

Fair work deserves a fair wage - and this is why all our products are also made using fair principles. To ensure that this is the case, we constantly keep an eye on even the smallest details or our entire value-added chain.

...sustainability

Sustainability is very important for us. This is why we take this aspect into account whenever possible within our everyday work. Examples are our logistics system, office management or when looking for new raw materials.

What is TIO about.

From bristles to handle, TIO is entirely made of biopolymers, based on fast growing plants. During their photosynthesis, plants remove CO2 from the atmosphere while releasing pure oxygen. This significantly reduces TIOs carbon footprint even when it’s ultimately dumped and used for thermal utilization it stays climate-neutral.

Furthermore the material of our replaceable heads is biodegradable (acc EN 13432) which prevents micro plastics. The dispense of fossil based raw oil and additives like BPA ensures that TIO goes well with your health.

Why replaceable brush heads?

Reduction and reusing are the most efective ways to save natural resources – that’s why we’ve put all our German engineering power together to develop a durable yet convenient exchange mechanism.

Simply use the pointed tip on the bottom of the new brush head to eject the used one. This makes you save 70% of waste and lets the environment smile while you get a truly hygienic fresh start as the full top is replaced.

The optimally incorporated gap between head and handle is designed to leave no space for germs. Further the handle is reusable and due to adding mineral fillers it provides a high grade haptic experience with a ceramic touch.
