The 5 things you've always wanted to know about Nimble
Hi kinder cleaning folks,
To celebrate our 6th birthday, we decided that we wanted to give you a sneak peek into our Nimble story and adventures.
We've asked our founder Von Sy a 5 True or False questions quiz to get all the crispy details behind the creation of our baby Nimble... based on some of the questions that we received from our community of wonderful parents!
1./ You were a parent when Nimble was born
Von: FALSE. Nimble was born when I became an uncle. My sister raised some issues she's had to clean safely at home around my beautiful niece. I wasn't a parent yet, but as an uncle and a chemist, it got me thinking about how we can / should improve the cleaning products that we use at home so that they are kids-friendly and 100% safe to use around them... 6 years later, it's still our main company pillar!
2./ The name 'Nimble' came from a book that you read
Von: FALSE. it actually came from a TV show that I watched 6 years ago where a presenter described Kimberly Walsh as nimble and it got stuck in my head and I thought: "oh what a great name for my company!" Thanks Kim xx
3./ Nimble team works fully remotely
Von: TRUE. When Covid hit in spring 2020 and we couldn't go the office, we discovered a new way of working that was fully remote. At first, it was disorienting as it was different to how we used to work before, but we got used to it and it became our new normal! Most of the team members are parents with young children, therefore when the time came to go back to the office, we talked about it and decided as a team that it was more convenient to keep this new rhythm to be closer to our little ones too.
Introducing the Nimble team at age 6, enjoy :)
4./ Milk Buster was the 1st product of the Nimble range
Von: TRUE. I created this product after a conversation with my sister when she said she was struggling to clean my niece's baby bottles: after a few washes, she said that the baby bottle was a bit smelly, and grey-ish due to milk residues... it didn't take more to trigger my geeky attention and.. Our Milk Buster baby bottle cleaner was born in my kitchen a few weeks later. Using the same formula 6 years later!
5./ All the Nimble products are vegan-friendly
Von: TRUE. At the creation of Nimble, we made the commitment that all our products should be created with no nasties such as harsh chemicals that could be irritating for our babies' delicate skins.
It can take some time and effort to find the right combination of plant-based ingredients to be safe to use around babies and yet highly effective, but it's part of our ethos to make kinder cleaning products since day 1, and we are proud to say that all our baby cleaning products are certified vegan-friendly and plant based. They are all registered with the Vegan Society and never tested on animals, naturally!
