What exactly are the toothbrushes made of?
Each toothbrush handle is made out of 100% moso bamboo from the Ningbo region of China and each brush is sealed in 100% compostable cello wrap made from wood and cotton pulp. Our plant-based bristles are made from corn and tapioca, which means the entire brush is compostable! If you’re looking for something a little more durable, you can try out our nylon bristles.
Are Brush Naked toothbrushes sealed in plastic?
Absolutely not! We wrap our toothbrushes in a 100% biodegradable/compostable cello made from wood and cotton pulp. We do that to keep them sanitary (it's going in your mouth after all!). The cello actually uses less material and energy to make than the box. It also allows us to send them to you without the box when you order directly from our website (just put 'NO BOX' in the comment section when you check out).
Why don't we just use a paper sleeve as packaging?
We've looked into this option and realize that some companies offer this option. The problem right now is that the paper sleeves are actually lined with a thin layer of plastic, much like a disposable coffee cups. Unfortunately, most of these companies haven't done their homework and don't even realize that the sleeve are lined with plastic.
What is the toothpaste and whitener made of?
Our Brush Naked toothpaste is an all-natural option for cleaning your teeth. We don’t use any artificial dyes and even package it in a recyclable tube. The Nelson Natural’s Charcoal Whitener is also all-natural, using the detoxifying properties of charcoal to pull bacteria, plaque, and tennis off teeth and naturally clean and whiten them.
How long do the brushes last?
Our plant-based bristles will last two weeks to a month. We think using a 100% biodegradable toothbrush is worth it, but if you're not quite there our nylon bristle toothbrushes will last as long as a regular toothbrush (three months or longer).
