Why should I choose Kit & Kin nappies?

Approved by dermatologists, we’ve developed a hypoallergenic and biodegradable nappy with premium performance and adorable designs. Featuring a part natural high-tech absorbent core that uses significantly fewer chemicals than standard nappies, Kit & Kin helps protect your baby’s soft and delicate skin to safeguard it from sensitive skin problems such as eczema and nappy rash.

Kit & Kin protects the environment too. Almost every element of our nappy including its packaging – will biodegrade within 3 to 6 years. Compare this to conventional nappies which are the third largest contributor to landfills, even though only 5% of the population uses them. In the UK alone, we use 8 million nappies every day, most of which will take up to 500 years to biodegrade. We are proud to support the work of the World Land Trust. For every 10 nappy subscriptions we receive, we will purchase and protect one acre of the rainforest through the World Land Trust.

Together, we can make a real difference.

What are Kit&Kin nappies made from?

We have replaced much of the plastic materials you find in standard nappies with sustainable materials that are not only kinder to your baby’s skin but also helps to protect the future resources of our world

The nappy’s absorbent core is made from natural cellulose (wood pulp) that is sourced from an FSC certified forest. This ensures that the wood pulp we use is from an eco-responsible, sustainably managed forest. The fluff is bleached using oxygen, not chlorine. The nappy’s backsheet (outer layer of our nappy) is 100% sustainable, derived from plant starch.

The top sheet (between baby’s bum and the absorbent core) is made of a biodegradable PLA ( Polylactic acid). PLA might sound scary but is not and is ‘harmless’ bioplastic that has been derived from corn starch, a renewable resource.

The nappy’s elastic leg cuffs and stretchy side panels have been designed to ensure a snug fit and superior performance.

The outer packaging is also biodegradable and GMO free.

Traditional nappies are primarily made from plastics, a non-renewable resource derived from oil. These plastic nappies will take anything up to 500 years to biodegrade. Furthermore, let’s not forget oil is a finite resource that will eventually run out.

Kit & Kin nappies have been made using the same technical and production process as traditional nappies, the difference being we have replaced much of the plastic materials with sustainable materials that are kinder to our baby’s skin and help protect the future resources of our world.
