Soft Bamboo Toothbrush
Facts: Bamboo is a fast growing renewable resource that can be harvested in 1-5 years. Bamboo can also grow in a wide range of climates without the use of any pesticides due to its antimicrobial properties. When bamboo is harvested, every part of the plant can be used.
Finding plastic free alternatives can be tricky and time consuming.. so we did it for you! Our beautiful bamboo Truthbrush features a smooth bamboo handle and soft plant based bristles! 62% castor oil and 38% nylon. Available in Cloud White and Storm Grey.
Packaging: Each Truthbrush is hand wrapped in tissue paper and a recyclable cardboard pillow pack.
Moso Bamboo handle, 62% castor oil and 38% nylon bristles
*We are constantly searching for an alternative, but until then, we believe that a biodegradable handle with castor oil-based bristles is much better than a plastic toothbrush. The bristles should be put into your normal trash while the bamboo handle can be composted.
For the first few days you may notice the feel of the natural bamboo instead of plastic but soon you won't be able to imagine using anything else. Occasionally a bristle may fall out - don't panic! This is simply a sign that you are using a handcrafted brush made in the traditional way - not with bristles molded into plastic.
We recommend, based on advice from dentists, that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months (although we know the Truthbrush lasts much longer).
After use, please don’t leave standing in water. To dispose of your toothbrush, you can pull out the bristles with a pair of pliers and re-use the Truthbrush in any creative way you can. Plant canes, paint stirrers, or a small cleaning brush are just a couple of examples of how you can give your Truthbrush a second life.
This toothbrush was the answer to my plastic free toothbrush hunt. These are great for sensitive teeth!
This is the second time buying it and I love it, even got one for my mom. Since i have sensitive teeth and gums I can't use any toothbrush, this one is soft enough to not damage my gums but hard enough to clean teeth well. Will buy again
I absolutely love this toothbrush! I love the rounded shape, which is apparently unusual for bamboo toothbrushes, but it’s so much more comfortable in your mouth! The harsh square edges of other bamboo toothbrushes hurt my gums somehow. I’m not sure if I’m just a rough brusher or if this is a common issue... either way, I’m just elated to finally have a comfortable bamboo toothbrush!
Ps: I also love the color swatches at the bottom of the handle, so now I can easily tell apart my toothbrush from my bf’s. Would love if more colors were available someday!
Shipping was quick and was not disappointed in my product. Very modern look and lightweight!
I've tried other bamboo toothbrushes but found them to be too bulky and angular. They were uncomfortable to hold and scraped up my lips and the inside of my mouth. I was hoping this smaller, more rounded toothbrush would work better, but the bamboo texture still caused irritation. I was only able to use it twice and then had to stop.
