Our Story

In a cozy restaurant setting in London, England, three friends sharing laughs found themselves discussing an unexpected topic – toilet troubles. It’s only February, and one friend confesses to not one, not two, but three toilet blockages already this year. The culprit? Supposedly “flushable” wet wipes that don’t break down.

This conversation inspired two of these friends to seek a better more environmentally-friendly alternative.

Introducing Twipes, a truly toilet-friendly wet wipe that removes the frustrating experience of clogged toilets and misleadingly labeled wet wipes.

Our founder and COO, Ellenor Mcintosh, equipped with a background in chemical and materials science, dedicated five years to research and development, culminating in the creation of Twipes in December of 2019, in collaboration with co-founder Alborz Bozorgi as CEO.
