When it comes to household necessities like toilet tissue, just discovering new Black-owned brands that sell the product feels like a win.
However, Black-owned toilet tissue brand Ultra Kosmic 9 isn’t comfortable with just selling your standard roll. The family owned business specializes in selling toilet tissue made from bamboo fibers, rather than trees. The brand says making the switch to bamboo tissue helps the environment and contributes to the health and wellness of your household since it is free of harsh chemicals and dyes.
“At Ultra Kosmic 9 it’s our goal to provide all with a healthier and affordable alternative to a daily household need.” – Ultra Kosmic 9
Unlike traditional toilet paper, whose softness comes from chemical processing, Bamboo fibers are naturally smooth and round without the need for any chemical treatment. The properties of the natural fiber makes Bamboo Tissue the perfect choice for children and adults with skin sensitivities. Bamboo also has antibacterial properties, which help to kill bacteria that thrive in clothing and live on skin, causing unpleasant odors and irritation.
Even some of the healthiest among us don’t give much thought into what type of toilet tissue we are using, but Ultra Kosmic 9 thinks the paper products you use should reflect your commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Traditional rolls of toilet paper contain a dizzying number of chemicals including dioxins (known cancer-causing agents), fluorescent agents, bleach, and paper dust. With every wipe, these chemicals come into contact with your skin, the largest organ in your body, causing topical issues and other internal harm.
Also, on the environmental front, the old-school method of producing toilet paper just isn’t sustainable for the health of our planet. Recent reports about America’s excessive toilet tissue consumption and its impact on deforestation and climate change state that the current rate of traditional toilet paper consumption will have devastating consequences for Indigenous Peoples, wildlife, and global climate change if production methods aren’t changed soon.
“Bamboo grows six times faster than normal hardwood trees and is 100% biodegradable. In addition, bamboo is naturally antibacterial, and incredibly strong, so you can use less.” – Ultra Kosmic 9
Ultra Kosmic 9’s bamboo toilet paper is recyclable and septic safe containing no chemicals, bleach, or dust making it completely environmentally friendly and safe for your body.
The global tissue market is estimated to be worth $60 billion by the year 2025 and change is needed now, so Ultra Kosmic 9 is perfectly poised to be a Black-owned business with global reach and impact.
Ultra Kosmic 9 is based out of East Orange, New Jersey and as a new brand they promise customers, “The Best Wipe Of Your Life”. The founders state that this company is a labor of love, liberation, and an opportunity to build generational wealth.
