To make sure that YourHappyBox promise, to give more time during pregnancy, comes true, we can only select the best products. The selection process is based on several criteria. Sustainability, quality and female led business were the most important factors. It was not possible to fulfil always all the criteria but in terms of quality and sustainability no compromises were made.
For almost 50 years, the family-owned company in Rapperswil has faithfully adhered to its guiding principle: «It’s not the disease, but the health that we must care for». The company, run by Tanja Zimmermann-Burgerstein, produces vitamins and micronutrients, enjoying an excellent reputation throughout Switzerland.
The family business from the Allgäu region is known even in Switzerland for its excellent products. In 1988, pharmacist Dietmar Wolz and midwife Ingeborg Stadelmann founded the Bahnhof-Apotheke with the aim of producing high-quality and sustainable natural remedies for all situations in life. Especially during pregnancy, it is important to choose natural products that promote the well-being of the expectant mommy and are safe for the unborn baby.
The family business from Uster near Zurich was founded in 1982. From the beginning, the aim was to produce cosmetics that are in harmony with nature. You will find selected essential oils and baby products from farfalla in YourHappyBox.
Since caffeine consumption is recommended to be limited during pregnancy, pregnant women drink all the more tea. But not every variety should be drunk during the nine months (and while breastfeeding). The teewerk in Tägerwilen in Thurgau is run by Katja Bänzinger and places great importance to sustainability and quality. For YourHappyBox, she tailored organic teas to the needs of the respective trimester and after birth.
Since its foundation 100 years ago, the world-renowned company has specialized in natural care products to allow «health and beauty unfold in harmony with man and nature».
The Scandinavian company has quite a few tricks up its sleeve when it comes to ensuring that pregnant women can move comfortably even as their bellies grow. Carriwell makes supportive and functional maternity underwear and you will find many of their great products in our HappyBoxes.
studio huske was founded in 2021 in Switzerland with the aim of developing robust, wipe-clean and child-friendly furnishing products that are visually appealing to both big and small. We have the changing mat in our range, which can be used in many ways. With all of the products Kate, a mother of two and architect, has designed, she makes sure they are sustainable and of the highest quality. The fabric has a Korean eco-label and is 100% recyclable.
Almost no pregnant woman gets through pregnancy without sweets. We have found a chocolate manufacturer that uses only first-class cocoa beans from small producers and produces its chocolate completely without additives. Also it is founded by some very impressive women that take quality and sustainability seriously.
While looking for cosmetic products during pregnancy, we came across Sarah. She founded MommySpa with the promise to produce only purely sustainable natural cosmetics for expectant mothers. We would have loved to include all of her products in the boxes, but didn’t have enough space. All the more we are happy to have included the Belly Tatoos for Box 2 & the Belly Mask for Box 3.
Sonett, the pioneer for ecological laundry detergents and cleaning agents was founded in 1977 and recently received the German Sustainability award. With the beginning of pregnancy and latest with the birth of the first child for a lot of people it become really important to only use cleaning products that are free from aggressive substances. We use the bile soap from Sonett to attack the unbelievably resistant stains such a little human can produce.
Markus and Lucius have joined forces to reinvent the intimate shower. Markus came into contact with the cleaning concept of an intimate douche for intimate care at an early age through his mother-in-law, who comes from the Arab culture. However, he then became particularly aware during and after his wife’s pregnancy of how inadequately prepared the market is for the hygienic needs of the postpartum period. With their focus on sustainability, aesthetics and quality, we think they are a great fit for our HappyBoxes and are thrilled to have them on board.
With Pioupiou we are proud to include an all-purpose solution for baby care in our collection. The natural, vegan and organic balm is a soothing combination of natural oils and certified organic active ingredients. We are happy to announce that pioupiou cosmetics is run by an impressive woman. A mother of two herself with years of experience in the cosmetics industry, Claire Dhote couldn’t find products that met her quality and sustainability standards, so she just did it herself.
