GoToob is the civilised, smart, squeezable tube for travelling, outdoors and more.
The award-winning Human Gear GoToob is made from soft yet rugged silicone, so it's easy to squeeze and dispense the product right away. A special, "no-drip" valve helps the cap stay clean.
Please note that although many people use and love these bottles when travelling, these are not sold as leakproof bottles. The best design for leakproof bottles is the Sea to Summit bottles.
A window in the collar identifies popular contents. Rotate the window to "Soap", "Lotion" and more - tighten the cap to lock in the setting.
A large opening means it's easy to fill and clean your GoToob.
GoToob (single) comes in a range of sizes and colours.
Small: The small 37ml size slips easily into pockets, bags, purses and other tight spots.
Medium: The medium 60ml size features a handy suction cup that can briefly attach to walls for moments when you need your hands free.
Large: The large 89ml size gives you maximum volume for longer times between refills.
All GoToobs are approved for aeroplane carry-on, they're food-safe (FDA) and are 100% BPA-free and PC-free. They are also covered by a lifetime warranty.

Recommended for: shampoo, conditioner, lotions, suntan oil, liquid soap, condiments (tomato sauce, cooking oil, etc.), hand-sanitiser, body wash, toothpaste, secret sauce, magic potions, and many other low and medium viscosity fluids.
NOT recommended for these fluids! Some fluid viscosity does not suit the valve.
Tips for using your Gotoob.
GoToobs won't leak under normal circumstances; however, accidents can happen. Those luggage handlers can sometimes be brutal, caps don't get tightened fully, etc. We recommend that you always put GoToobs in a sealed "Ziplock" style bag for insurance against unfortunate "Murphy's Law" episodes.

A word from Human Gear:
The GoToob is made of high-purity, FDA food-safe silicone. Silicone is one of the safest and most inert materials in common commercial use (heck, baby bottle nipples are made from the stuff!). It's not cheap material, but we decided to use silicone for the fantastic performance and safety it affords. However, no material is completely impervious. While GoToobs work great with thousands of different fluids, sometimes a fluid can react, affecting the silicone of the tube, altering the fluid, or both. This is due to reactivity with silicone itself and isn't limited to the specific silicone we use for GoToobs. Also remember that GoToobs are travel products, not long-term storage containers. Some products may change state (dry out or become less viscous) if kept in GoToobs for months at a time.
It is a good idea when using any product in a GoToob for the first time either to test a small amount overnight or to pack the GoToob in a leak proof bag for protection. We will happily replace your GoToob with a new one if there are any issues, but we can't say the same for whatever else you packed in your suitcase!
While the range of chemicals used in modern cosmetic and personal care products makes comprehensive compatibility testing impossible, we have consistently noticed problems with the following chemical groups/product types and recommend against using them in GoToobs:
-Alcohols (Note: Alcohols may be present in many cosmetic products, including make-up remover, mouth wash, astringent, hair serum, aftershave, and insect repellent).
-Salicylic Acid (most often used in acne treatments).
-Hair serums and treatments (detanglers, relaxers, volumizers, polishers, smoothers, shine serums, etc.) including shampoos and conditioners designed to add shine or luster to hair as well as products with Argan Oil (like Moroccan hair oil).
-DEET-based insect repellents.
-Sterile products. Note: Even though sterile products may be fully compatible with silicone, GoToobs are not sterilized. Therefore, we don't recommend GoToobs for use with fluids where sterilization may be an issue, such as contact lens solution. This includes liquid or semi-liquid prescription medications.
-Caustic, corrosive, or flammable products. Note: Many household chemicals are sold in specifically designed plastic or glass containers specified by the manufacturer and should never be decanted. GoToobs were designed for personal care or food items you may need while traveling--not bleach, drain cleaner, fire-starters, or hydrochloric acid.
Recommend Testing First
The following products are compatible with GoToobs in most cases. However, we've heard of problems in some cases when using these products and recommend testing a small amount in a GoToob overnight before general use or travel.
-Personal lubricants (non-silicone based).
-Liquid sweeteners (especially Stevia).
-Sunscreen and tanning lotions.
-Skin conditioning oil formulations.
Note: You will know if your fluid is incompatible if it leaks, changes the shape or color of the silicone tube, evaporates from the tube, or dries up shortly after being put in the tube. Most reactions occur overnight; this is why we recommend an overnight trial run with a new product.
