About the brand


Hydrophil is founded by Christoph, Sebastian en Wanja, three friends from Hamburg. Their friendship has arisen through their joint commitment to the aid organisation Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V. The three friends wondered whether it would be possible to produce products which are not only fairly traded, sustainable and vegan, but which, in view of the increasing problems around water scarcity, are also water neutral.

This idea became the brand Hydrophil. Hydrophil creates innovative and sustainable hygiene products. Where possible, Hydrophil uses resources which don't endanger ground or drinking water and don't require artificial irrigation. In this way they can significantly reduce water consumption and make people aware of it. Their products are vegan and cruelty free. Hydrophil believes that fair work deserves a fair reward. They keep an eye on their value chain down to the smallest detail and ensure that their products are produced fairly.

Hydrophil donates 10% of its profits to the non-profit association Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V., which is committed to providing access to clean drinking water for people in countries of the global South.
