We’ve created a high quality easy-to-grip curved handle made entirely out of organic bamboo. Only Certified 100% Organic, wild, giant Moso Bamboo is used for our bamboo toothbrush handles. The bamboo is certified organic by CERES of Germany. No pesticides or fertilizers are ever used on our bamboo – in fact, because it is wild mountain bamboo, doing so would be completely impossible. Likewise, our bamboo is never watered by us – only natural mountain rain. At present we are harvesting less than 1% of the possible bamboo resources available in the sprawling Chinese bamboo mountain range where our bamboo is harvested.
This special SOFT bristle is composed of 62% Castor Bean Oil, 38% plastic. This is the latest and most advanced biobased bristle in the world today. It’s biobased, but still not biodegradable. Prior to the invention of nylon in the 1930s, pig hair was used for toothbrush bristles worldwide. Today, pig hair remains the only biodegradable option – and it is a very controversial material. Our product is not perfect, but it’s a step in the right direction. Our bristles can be recycled.
