Nordics Bamboo is made with a MOSO bamboo handle – the only fast-growing kind of bamboo that endangered pandas don’t eat. It is one of the fastest regenerating plants in the world and there is no deforestation.
The material is undergoing a process of carbonisation and thermal treating so that we can guarantee water proof handle and bacteria-free natural product throughout the course of life.
During production, the handle is being exposed to extremely high temperatures, because otherwise the natural composition of bamboo could potentially attract microbes and other microorganisms. The bristles are made from a top quality recycled nylon, which will decompose in nature 20 times faster than ordinary polyester threads. The packagings are from 100% recycled papers so we can introduce a completely compostable product.
In our Nordics toothbrushes there is no plastic whatsoever! Even the plastic covering that is protecting the brush from particles during shipment and delivery is from recycled BPA-free nylon. All papers are recycled and are completely bio-degradable. We are trying to limit the use of colorings as much as possible and the overall waste during production is less than 1%.
All brushes are with Soft bristles, because we have noticed that not only ourselves but a lot of other people had started to complain about bleeding gums. This is starting to become a global problem and it shouldn’t be neglected. There aren’t a lot of alternatives for soft-bristled toothbrushes so we decided to make one. All the bristles are tapered to clean hard to reach places easily. With these tapered bristles you can access the places between teeth where plaque and tartar is building up.
Our most valuable member – the brush with black bristles is like this because of the special asian “Binchotan” charcoal. This charcoal has been used for centuries in Asia for whitening teeth and is really effective for everyday use. It is absolutely harmless and without any negative impact on the teeth, unlike the aggressive hydrogen peroxide.
The charcoal is acting as it is absorbing the deposits from the surface of the tooth and prevents the building up of tartar.
Our toothbrushes are great for every member of the family and even the smallest ones.
We are strongly recommending changing of the toothbrush on every 2-3 months and every time after illness!
