The ‘Carbon’ bamboo toothbrush has soft, black, straight-trimmed bamboo charcoal fibre bristles for the efficient cleaning of sensitive teeth and gums. The bristles contain micro-particles of active carbon to help naturally brighten teeth and disinfect the mouth. They are made from carbonised bamboo dust mixed with nylon 4 – approximately 90% bamboo, 10% nylon. 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.
Designed in Slovakia and made in China using bamboo grown in the producer’s private bamboo ‘forest’. The bamboo mix bristles are made by steaming and drying bamboo material which is then ground to dust. This dust is mixed with nylon 4 and pulled into the bristles. The bamboo material is processed at a higher temperature so that carbonisation takes place.
