ADULT TOOTHBRUSH – Soft bamboo charcoal infused Bristle
(Box of 12 toothbrushes)
The handle is made of MOSO bamboo, an environmentally sustainable resource and is technically considered a member of the grass family. It is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, and incredibly abundant. Our bamboo is cultivated for between three to five years, and then harvested. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. In fact, by harvesting and using the bamboo, we help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas.
Our bamboo is grown by many local farmers (NOT PLANTATION).
The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonisation finishing process provides water resistance and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.
The bristles are made from a charcoal infused BPA FREE polymer (Nylon Blend) resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.
We have tried to find a biodegradable bristle but as of this time there is nothing available – apart from boars hair (don’t want to go there). No they are not Nylon 4 (there are no bristles made from Nylon 4 on the market today).
We recommend you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean.
