The Truthbrush might just be the best bamboo toothbrush you’ve ever seen. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also biodegradable. The rounded ergonomic handle is crafted from sustainable, organic bamboo which is naturally antibacterial. Your Truthbrush comes with medium bristles which are castor oil based to care for your teeth and gums. Why bamboo? Bamboo is the perfect material for the Truthbrush as it is beautiful to look at, warm to touch and fully biodegradable. The natural antibacterial and antifungal properties of bamboo mean the Truthbrush is hygienic too. Made from sustainable organic Moso bamboo that grows up to a metre a day. Why castor oil bristles? The team at Truthbrush were determined to find a genuine plastic-free alternative to nylon bristles which could biodegrade. After extensive research they realised that the only non-plastic alternative is boar bristles (pig hair), which would be unacceptable to many people. There are also unsubstantiated claims of biodegradable nylon 4 bristles but in reality this is not commercially available. Ultimately, Truthbrush decided to use bristles which are 62% castor oil and 38% nylon, which means less petroleum-based plastic. What is the finish on the Truthbrush? The Truthbrush is dipped in either white or grey paint, which has been tested according to REACH legislation. TOOTHBRUSH CARE Truthbrush recommends, based on advice from dentists, that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months (although it's likely that Truthbrush lasts much longer). After use, please don’t leave standing in water. To dispose of your toothbrush, please place in your ordinary bin. Over time, all but the bristles will biodegrade, leaving no residue. Alternatively, you can pull out the bristles with a pair of pliers and re-use the Truthbrush in any creative way you can. Plant canes and paint stirrers are just a couple of examples of how you can give your Truthbrush a second life.
