About Kit & Kin
Why did you choose the name Kit & Kin
Kit & Kin is a play on the phrase Kith and Kin.
Kith comes from a word of Germanic origin meaning ‘known’. Kin is also of Germanic origin, from an Indo-European root meaning ‘give birth to’. Your kith are your friends or acquaintances, while your kin are all the people you are related to.
We want to help protect our friends and family with a range of safe, affordable and eco friendly products, hence the name Kit & Kin. Real products for real families!
Disposable nappies, wipes & skincare
Why should I choose Kit & Kin nappies?
Approved by dermatologists, Kit & Kin is the hypoallergenic nappy with premium, plant-derived performance. Our nappies contain no harsh chemicals and use gentle, super soft materials to help safeguard your baby from sensitive skin problems like nappy rash. With a flash dry layer for instant dryness and patented channel technology to evenly distribute liquid around the nappy, baby’s bottom is better protected from leaks.
We use sustainable, plant-derived materials to help end our dependency on non-renewable resources and protect the future of your baby’s world. Our super absorbent core contains bio-based gels (based on mass balance) and totally chlorine-free, FSC® certified wood pulp from sustainably managed forests. The top layer, outer lining, leg cuffs and packaging are all made from 100% sustainable materials. Produced in a carbon neutral factory, Kit & Kin nappies are the natural choice.
Every product gives back through the Kit & Kin Foundation. Thanks to your support we help protect acres of threatened rainforest around the world and support women and children living in these areas with educational scholarships, family planning clinics and healthcare. Together, we can make a real difference.
What are Kit & Kin nappies made from?
We have replaced much of the plastic you find in standard nappies with sustainable materials that are not only kinder to your baby’s skin but also help to protect the future resources of our world.
The nappy’s absorbent core is made using bio-based gels (based on mass balance) and natural cellulose (wood pulp) that is sourced from an FSC® certified forest. This ensures that the wood pulp we use is from a sustainably managed forest. The fluff is bleached using oxygen, not chlorine.
The top layer (which comes into contact with your baby’s delicate skin) is plant-based and super gentle, while the outer lining, leg cuffs and packaging are all made from 100% sustainable materials.
Our nappies are now produced in a carbon neutral factory, so they’re even greener than ever.
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, which is why we use sustainable, plant-based materials that are much kinder on our planet.
