Our Bamboo Toothbrushes are made with a 100% natural bamboo handle made from Moso Bamboo. It’s a species of Bamboo local to China, and it has the ability to grow very tall in a very short time. The bamboo comes from sustainably harvested forests and is made into handles through a mechanical process that uses up as much of the plant as possible, so nothing is wasted.
The bristles in our toothbrush are made from Nylon 6, and are infused with Activated Bamboo Charcoal. Activated Bamboo Charcoal is a natural teeth whitener. It adsorbs the toxins and helps keep teeth clean and white.
Right now there aren’t any 100% natural fiber bristles available out there, except animal hair bristles. So if you’re looking for bristles that are respectful to our planet, as well as to the animals, our infused Activated Bamboo Charcoals are the best alternative. To make the bristles, the Nylon is infused with the activated bamboo charcoal, once the paste is mixed, it passes through an extruding machine that converts them into bristles. The process is hardly handmade, as it requires quite a bit of mechanization.
