The Oriculi is an ear cleaner tool made from a sustainable, durable, 100% renewably sourced material derived from castor oil.
This design features a spherical finger rest and a small ‘spoon’ at the end, making it easy to hold and use. We think you’re going to love it!
In addition to being eco-friendly and sustainable, this material is also safe for children. The Oriculi is available in five different colours, so there’s one for each family member.
Lamazuna invented the name ‘Oriculi’ for this clever sustainable ear cleaner tool that cleans your ears and will save you from ever using disposable cotton buds again!
Our 100% bio-sourced, bioplastic Oriculi launched in 2020, and we’re very proud of it!
After months of development, we’ve succeeded in creating a new version of our Oriculi that’s 100% made in France! This zero-waste accessory is produced from an eco-friendly, sustainable and durable material. Its shape was designed to make it easy to use, and it’s guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Every zero-waste bathroom should have one!
If you’re looking for a zero-waste way to clean your ears, look no further.
All that’s left to do is choose the colour you like best!
100% biosourced bioplastic derived from castor oil.
The spherical finger rest on our new Oriculi makes it really easy to hold and use. The little ‘spoon’ at the end of the ear cleaner tool will remove visible earwax at the entrance to the ear canal. Don’t go any further! Once you’ve finished cleaning your ears, simply rinse the Oriculi with clean water (or soapy water if necessary) and dry it with a towel.
You can use the Oriculi to clean your children’s ears, but it MUST be done by an adult, in a calm atmosphere! Use the spherical finger rest to hold it firmly and stop it from going any further into the ear. That way, if the child moves suddenly, there’s no risk of it touching their eardrum.
Rinse your Oriculi after using it and keep it in a dry place. You can clean it with soap now and again if necessary.
Our bioplastic Oriculi is guaranteed to last a lifetime. That’s thousands of cotton buds (Q-tips) you’ll never have to use and throw away!
It’s a brilliant, eco-affordable, zero-waste accessory!
The packaging is made from 100% recycled cardboard.
Where does the name “Oriculi” come from?
The name “Oriculi” was invented by Lamazuna for this brilliant sustainable accessory, which cleans the ears and lasts a lifetime – so there’s no need to use cotton buds ever again!
Where is it made?
The bioplastic is 100% derived from castor oil. The castor oil plants are grown sustainably in India, and the beans are processed in France. The oil then goes to our producer, who is located about 150 miles from our head office.
We made a choice, and this choice does have a financial cost, but it was important for us to minimize our carbon footprint and support French craftsmanship.
Why Castor oil?
The supplier of our raw material has implemented a sustainable cultivation programme for the production of castor beans, which aims to support over 2,700 farmers.
The castor oil plant has long been used traditionally in India. It grows in semi-arid conditions and needs little water.
-At first, we wanted to find a 100% bio-sourced and biodegradable bioplastic. It’s worth pointing out that bioplastics are relatively new materials and many suppliers are still very much working on their development. The materials that we tested and met these two criteria (100% bio-sourced AND biodegradable) did not meet our technical requirements. Moreover, biodegradability tests are often carried out on very fine sections of bioplastics (about 0.1 mm), so they don’t actually guarantee the biodegradability of larger items, such as our Oriculi.
-We, therefore, decided to focus on a 100% biobased, durable bioplastic, so that we could offer you an Oriculi that was safe to use and could last a lifetime. If for any reason it should break (unlikely, but accidents do happen!), then it can go back into the circular economy and be recycled and reused. That way, there’s zero waste!
