Safix Scrub Pads are a compostable coconut fibre scrub pad providing a great alternative to polyester scrub pads commonly in use today. The Safix scrub pads are made from natural coconut (coir) fibre bonded with a non toxic biodegradable adhesive and are suitable for use on most ‘non stick’ surfaces.
Safix has provided economic empowerment via employment for hundreds of women in rural India who otherwise have little access to employment, education or healthcare.

The scrub pads come in two sizes, regular and large and also as a body exfoliator.
