Comes UCB with a sleeve?

The touch of the bottle his very soft. That's why we decided to drop the bottle without an extra sleeve first.
Instead, we recommend to wear the bottle over your clothes, your blanket
or another adequate cover; not to fill the bottle with boiling water –
this recommendation is btw. valid for all hot-water bottles, not just
UCB. Doctors recommend 40-50 degrees as the ideal water temperature for
usage.

Bottle Patina

Since the bottle is manufactured out of natural rubber, without any 
additional, chemical protective layer, it is possible that your bottle 
gets a patina after some time of usage. If this bothers you, you can 
water the outside of the bottle with hot water, with the goal to visibly
reduce these marks again. Note: Hot water can cause burns. Please 
execute this procedure with caution and avoid direct hot water contact 
to the skin. Please note that we decline any liability to it.

Safety & Care

Please read and follow the safety instructions before using, which can be found here
The safety of the product and your protection is very important us. That's why the bottle is designed according to the criteria of British Safety standard first.
E.g., the bottle opening is designed to reach a sufficient water volume to ease a safe filling process. Never use boiling water to fill the bottle. Doctors recommend a water temperature around 40 degrees for adults to enjoy all the benefits of hot water like pain treatments.
Be careful if you have a latex allergy: Urban Cross Bottle is out of natural rubber.

To make the most of the wearing moment, we recommend to fill the bottle max 2/3, so that the bottle harmonies more with your body shape. 

Upcycling

The environmental
benefits of upcycling are mammoth, aside from minimising the volume of discarded materials and waste being sent to landfill each year, it also reduces the need for production using new or raw materials which means a reduction in air pollution, water pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and often a conservation of global resources.

Fair Rubber

Fair conditions for natural rubber

It is a matter of the heart for us: We are very proud to cooperate
from the very first beginning with the Fair Rubber Association to fulfil
the criteria of fair trade in natural rubber. That’s why also with
every bottle sold a fair trade premium goes to the tappers, plantation
workers and small farmers to improve their living and working
conditions.
