Nimble is a range of award-winning child-friendly household cleaning products powered by plants. Sold in Boots, Ocado and launching in 375 Sainsbury’s stores in December 2019, it has a granted patent in the UK and EU for its Milk Buster technology and won the BBC’s 'The Customer is Always Right' award.
As a chemist with 10 years of experience in Unilever R&D, our founder used his own savings to create Nimble Milk Buster, an innovative baby bottle cleaner that effectively removes milk residues by detaching milk fat and proteins from plastic. His niece’s milk bottles were getting cloudy, smelly and regular washing-up liquids were leaving strong chemical smells and not even really working. Which is how Nimble began.
Since then, we’ve created more plant-based cleaning solutions that are effective, safe to use around kids and have sold 80,000+ units in the UK and overseas since 2016.
The global household cleaning market is worth $100B. There’s a growing trend of ‘baby cleaning products’ in the US & Asia, now worth $5B and growing at 6.2%. This is driven by parents nowadays looking for modern and responsible brands in every product category.
Nimble products are sold in 86 Boots stores, Boots.com, Ocado and 375 Sainsbury’s stores (from Dec 2019). Plus distribution partners in overseas markets.
Nimble has won the BBC’s The Customer is Always Right, come 2nd in NatWest’s Power Up Index for Startups; featured in Our Royal Baby book, celebrating the birth of Prince Archie.
The funds will be used to execute initial launch marketing activities for Sainsbury’s and support growth in Boots.
