The bristles contain charcoal reactive ion which can easily adsorb the dental plaque on the surface of teeth to make teeth healthy and white. Ultrafine ends of the bamboo charcoal-enhanced bristles can go deep into the various gaps between the teeth to have a deep cleaning, the soft bamboo charcoal-enhanced bristles with super adsorption capacity takes care of gums and protects them from injury while brushing.
• Charcoal enhanced Toothbrush aids in mouth odor control and cleans the mouth
• Helps prevention of tooth decay
• Has a strong tooth whitening effect and freshness after brushing.
The bristles are made from a BPA FREE Nylon 6 blended polymer 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).
The bamboo charcoal-enhanced bristles are more moisture proof and antibacterial than normal bristles which can help to keep the bristles dry, keep away from bacterium breeding, leaving the mouth more comfortable, healthy with clean, and white teeth.
Available in soft, medium and soft for children
Most dentists will only recommend a soft bristle but we know that about 45% of people use a medium bristle so we have that available. The Child toothbrush is only available in soft.
We use MOSO bamboo – why – because bamboo is part of the grass family so we are not cutting down trees – MOSO Bamboo is one of the fastest growing bamboo’s in the world and our friendly pandas do not like to eat it.
We do not use plantation bamboo – we give the local farmers an income from land that is really only good for growing bamboo. Our toothbrushes are Fair Traded and manufactured in China which means everyone gets a fair go and a fair pay.
The biodegradable bamboo toothbrush handle will disappear within a couple of years – which is far better than the hundreds or thousands of years for plastic.
How do I look after it?
Well it is common sense really give your toothbrush a rinse after use and then keep it dry. Remember the handle is a Natural product so DO NOT let your toothbrush sit in water, DO NOT store it in a moist environment as it may discolour and possibly become moldy.
Disposing of your toothbrush
For best results, most dentist’s recommend you replace your toothbrush either monthly or at least every quarter. Some even say use it until it stops.
To answer the main question, HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? – We test drove a toothbrush for over 8 months so yes they last (not that we suggest you do that).
The Eco Toothbrush handle can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost or landfill. The bamboo Handle will biodegrade into soil without pollution, we suggest that you remove the bristles and place them into the bin.
