Nohbo, a leader in the development of groundbreaking water-soluble packaging technologies, today announced the successful completion of its Series A funding round, led by Material Impact Fund. While the financial details remain undisclosed, the round includes participation from Dara Holdings, Susquehanna Private Equity Investments, LLLP, and SaferMade.

Palm Bay, FL, June 05, 2023 --( Nohbo's proprietary Hydrofills are versatile pods designed to dramatically reduce single-use plastic waste and encourage sustainable consumption. By simply adding 8 ounces of tap water to a refillable bottle and shaking it, users can instantly create a rich shampoo, creamy conditioner, or gel-like body wash. This technology presents an eco-conscious alternative to conventional personal care product packaging and caters to the increasing consumer demand for plastic-free solutions. Nohbo offers this item to consumer packaged good companies (CPGs) as a cutting-edge packaging delivery system that replaces traditional plastic bottles with water-soluble alternatives.

"We are thrilled about the prospects this investment brings to Nohbo and grateful that both consumers and the planet will benefit from our innovative solutions," said Ben Stern, Founder and CEO of Nohbo. "With the backing of Material Impact and our other investors, we will expand our commercial offerings and disrupt the industry.”
