The founders of Hydrophil are Christoph, Sebastian and Wanja, three friends from Hamburg.
The Hydrophil is a brand for innovative sustainable hygiene products. Their products are not only fair traded, sustainable and vegan, but also produced water neutral. At the beginning, they wanted to start a field trial and try to develop a product that consumes and pollutes as little water as possible in its production. A lot has happened since then. Their range of water neutral, vegan & fair products has grown steadily and now they are the market leader in sustainable dental hygiene with bamboo toothbrushes. They want to make tomorrow's world even more beautiful and greener.
A look at our globe suggests that water is an infinite commodity: At least two thirds of our earth are covered with water. However, only 3% of this is fresh water and therefore drinkable. The resource water is therefore very limited. The consequences of this scarcity of resources are as fatal as they are unbelievable: 2.1 billion of our fellow human beings worldwide have no access to clean drinking water. Facts like these prompted the friends to pay special attention to the issue of water scarcity.
Hydrophil creates innovative and sustainable hygiene products. Products that should serve to broaden the view for topics such as sustainability and scarcity of resources. The three boys common vision: the production of a sustainable full range for the bathroom - water-neutral, vegan & fair. This means that they only use natural raw materials that do not endanger groundwater and drinking water and do not require artificial irrigation. In this way they can significantly reduce water consumption and make people aware of it. In order to have a positive influence on our world, their products neither contain animal products nor are they tested on animals. They also believe that fair work deserves a fair reward. They keep a personal eye on their value chain down to the smallest detail and ensure that their products are produced fairly. Their mission: They want to sensitize you to sustainable consumption in your everyday life with their products. They are always working on new products that meet their high standards.
True to their motto: Do a little bit better every day.
The Hydrophil donates 10% of their profits to the non-profit association Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V., which is committed to providing access to clean drinking water for people in countries of the global South.
