These toothbrushes have been designed with a dental hygienist to offer the best possible performance, as well as strong environmental credentials.
Each toothbrush has soft bristles made from carbonised bamboo dust mixed with Nylon 4 bristles. The bristles are approximately 90% bamboo, 10% nylon.
These bristles contain micro-particles of active charcoal to help naturally brighten teeth and disinfect the mouth.

These toothbrushes have handles made out of solid moso bamboo. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, and is an endlessly renewable resource. It grows naturally without using any pesticides or fertilizers, takes in greenhouse gasses, and produces 35% more oxygen than the equivalent trees.
Bamboo toothbrush handles are naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial; however, these handles are also heat treated which means the surface is ‘carbonised’. This results in the waterproofing of the bamboo and makes it soft to touch and much more durable in the bathroom. The handles are sized to meet the recommendations of dental hygienists to allow for precise and functional toothbrushing.
These toothbrushes have bristles containing nylon 4 – a preferred material for toothbrush bristles according to the International Federation of Dental Hygienists. Nylon 4 is a BPA and phthalate free, naturally biodegradable polyamide and is widely considered as one of the most tolerable plastics from a health point of view. Japanese studies have shown it to biodegrade in approximately 4 months however some research questions this, and suggest it is better to remove nylon bristles from a bamboo toothbrush before disposal due to the different times they take to biodegrade.
Each brush is packaged in a biodegradable recycled brown paper sleeve inside a recycled kraft card box. Each bristle is 0.15mm in diameter and the brush has a density of 50 bristles per ‘core’.
The toothbrushes are made in China using bamboo grown in the producer’s private bamboo ‘forest.’
