Hi I’m Hannah, Founder of Toddle and Mum of 2. I was in the RAF for 9 years and loved the travel and adventure. I then became a Mum in 2014 and couldn’t find products that would protect my son’s skin when he came on adventures with me. Specifically, his lips would get chapped from the cold air and his cheeks would get sore from the wind. So our dribbleproof® lip balm and Sun and Wind Balm were born!
You can see more of my personal story here on Woman’s Hour- Radio 4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p093hf53
Since making that lip balm in my kitchen in 2017…we have gone from strength to strength, I got 150k in our first investment round last year and we’re now stocked in 17 retailers including Friends of Joules.
Come and join our adventure 🙂
2017– Business plan is first written! Just a dream at this stage.
2018- Product design, brand design, testing and development, and starting the investment round.
2019– Secured 150k and used commercial labs and Glyndwr University to make our products truly innovative. Found UK suppliers for our ingredients and packaging. We buy every ingredient and formulate ourselves.
2020– Launch! We officially launched in March. Nothing like launching just before a global pandemic!
We’ve picked up some awards along the way, huge thanks to our wonderful customers, for supporting us and voting for us.
Natural vegan children’s skincare is our passion, and we know how important it is for your little ones to be protected from the elements while out and about. So whether you’re playing in the garden or trekking through the wilderness, you know we’ve got your back.
Here at Toddle, our products come with our signature Toddle Toggle. You can clip this quickly and easily to your pram, backpack or camping gear, providing quick access and peace of mind wherever you are. We know how important it is for your little ones to spend quality time outdoors, and design our natural skincare products to give them protection from the elements.
Our natural children’s vegan skincare ingredients are the best they can be – for example, our DribbleProof Lip Balm contains soothing jojoba oil and nourishing shea butter to lock in moisture and help keep tiny lips protected. What does the best mean to us? We are cruelty free, as natural as we can possibly be, and 100% vegan. No animal products here, including beeswax.
All of this makes our products great for children’s sensitive young skin. Did you know their epidermis is 1/3 the thickness of an adult? Chemicals can also be absorbed more easily – so it’s crucially important we get it right.
