The Nimble story so far
Getting our UK Granted Patent for Milk Buster in Apr 2017
Worked as a chemist at a Fortune 500 company from 2003 to 2013
My name is Von Sy and I’m the founder at Nimble. I’m also the chief inventor of all our products, an uncle to four beautiful nieces and nephews, and the best husband ever according to my wife (let’s see if she says anything).
Since my sister gave birth to my Niece #1 (a.k.a. the cheeky one), my eyes were opened to the world of baby mess. How can such a small creature make so much chaos?! To my surprise, I realised that most cleaning products in the market are quite strong and I wouldn’t want them anywhere near my little niece. And to make matters worse, they are not really made to clean the specific messes that these little critters make.
So from then on, I’ve been on a mission to help make parents’ lives easier and create a cleaning product range that cleans baby messes without the chemical nasties. I have put my experience as a chemist working in R&D for a Fortune 500 company and started off with our first product, Milk Buster, which is an award-winning and patented baby bottle cleaner that removes cloudiness and smelly odour left behind by milk residues.
It’s been a long and hard journey to get more mums to know about Milk Buster but we’re slowly getting there. We’re finally on Ocado, Amazon and Kiddicare and in five other countries around the world.
And this month, our second product, Sticky Stopper, has been launched. It’s an antibacterial toy and surface cleaner that cleans and disinfects without the use of bleach! It was inspired by Niece #2 (a.k.a. the strong one) and her love of food and her little comfort toy that she brought everywhere she went.
We have more new products coming out soon so please watch this space! They are inspired by Niece #3 (the little one I’m carrying in the photo) and Nephew #1 (who I haven’t met yet because he is in the Philippines).
