FAQ

Who is nohbo?

nohbo, an acronym for NO-Hair-BOttles, is a sustainable personal care R&D company, which creates novel solutions for hotels and end consumers to rid themselves of wasteful and unnecessary plastic bottles. Nohbo eliminates the cycle of reducing, reusing and recycling by replacing plastic products in the bathroom through its Drop & Slip line!

Why is nohbo different?

nohbo is the world’s first single-use and eco-friendly personal care product aimed at eliminating excess waste typically consumed during the showering process, via solutions that melt in their user’s hands. Each year, in the USA alone, nearly 1,200 football stadium’s worth of plastic shampoo bottle waste accumulate in our overstuffed landfills and depleting oceans. This single-use, water-soluble product contributes to a harmonious living space, free of clutter and disposable plastic items. Nohbo offers a seamless travel experience providing the ideal portability (no spills or leaks) and is TSA compliant.

What is a nohbo drop?
