Historically, HEVEA began as a question that needed an answer: how to take care of our children and our planet just a little bit better. That makes everything quite simple for us: we were born of an urge to do better. To show that how we act and live in the world makes a difference to ourselves, and our children – the citizens of tomorrow. The lack of natural options for our future generations and the choices we have to make was what made us turn to Hevea Brasiliensis – natural rubber, and this has formed the basis of our mission and our purpose from the very beginning.
HEVEA is not just a brand; it’s a story with its own purpose. The HEVEA story is about how we want to leave fingerprints on the world – a fingerprint showing that we strive to do better, to create a more mindful way of taking care of the planet we leave for future generations.
HEVEA is inquisitive. We test, try and make tangible efforts to link sustainable thinking with aesthetic design. We are constantly developing, and we always allow the best ideas to guide us, even though we seldom know where they are going to lead.
HEVEA is more than what meets the eye. We are innovators in natural rubber, in design, in ways to work together, in processes and in distribution.
The Hevea Panda Teether is made of 100% natural rubber. He’s adorable and the perfect texture and shape to relieve teething pain.
Stylishly presented in Hevea’s signature giftbox, and colour coded in forest green to suit both boys and girls.
Just 100% natural rubber from the Hevea Brasisliensis tree. The name "Hevea" originates from the Latin name for a genus of rubber trees, Hevea Brasiliensis.
Hevea teethers are different from all other teethers because they are produced sustainably. Hevea gives you the opportunity to give only the best to your child while at the same time taking care of the environment.
Hevea pacifiers and teethers are made of 100% natural rubber, which is a natural sap coming from the rubber tree. As it is a natural material, it can vary in colour and shape. Also as it is biodegradable, it needs to stay of out sunlight and moist environments to prolong its lifespan. This also means that it doesn’t always have the same colour and it doesn’t last forever - as with organic apples, no two look the same – that's the beauty of being natural!!! Natural rubber can be broken down physically and/or chemically by microorganisms.

As well as producing great products, Hevea have a strong natural ethic, making us love them even more:
'At Hevea™ we truly want to be sustainable. We do our best to be a responsible company and always look for innovative ways to reduce, re-use and recycle. While many other pacifiers are packed in unnecessary amounts of plastic, which endangers nature, Hevea™ products are only packaged in a beautifully designed box of recycled papers.
We use soy ink on our packaging. Soy ink is naturally low in VOCs and is made of a renewable resource, using less energy to produce than other inks, and its post-production waste is not hazardous.
We use recycled paper for the packaging. This means that the uncoated paper contains a minimum of 30% post-consumer fiber, and the coated paper contains a minimum of 10% post-consumer fiber.
Our accessories are made of organic cotton. This means that the ingredients are grown without the use of chemical herbicides, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).'
