What are the ingredients in the Tooshies by TOM nappies?

Our nappies are made from: renewable biodegradable bioplastic, bio-based polypropylene (made from sugar), polymer spandex and polypropylene, chlorine free wood pulp from sustainably managed forests, BIO Core (made from wheat starch) blended with the SAP (super absorbent polymers), safe adhesives, inks (that do not contain heavy metals or lead), citrus extract & liquid chlorophyll (natural odour blockers)

Where possible we’ve replaced conventional polypropylene (plastic) with a material called PLA – a bio-based plastic that’s made from corn, it’s a sustainable and fully biodegradable material. PLA is present in the topsheet, backsheet and inner acquisition layer of the nappy (a fancy name for the layer that draws the liquid into the core).

Our nappies do contain plastic as this is an essential component in a disposable nappy and it simply wouldn’t perform without it.

Are the nappies biodegradable?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to create a nappy which is 100% biodegradable that still performs. As we know performance is a non-negotiable for most parents, we opted to reducing our environmental footprint by producing our nappies from over 45% biodegradable, plant-based materials. Whilst we agree that biodegradability is important, as much as 85% of the environmental impact from a disposable nappy is related to its raw materials which is why a big focus for us is sourcing renewable materials (like bioplastics made from plants) in place of petrochemical ones.
