Information

Medium bristles.

The Truthbrush came from a wish for a toothbrush that was beautiful and luxurious as well as biodegradable. 

The rounded ergonomic handle is crafted from sustainable, organic bamboo which is naturally anti bacterial.

The bristles are medium DuPont nylon to care for your teeth and gums.

Truthbrush Care

It is recommended, based on advice from dentists, that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months (although the 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.

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.

Bamboo is resistant to natural pests, which means it is farmed organically.

Where is the Truthbrush made?

Truthbrushes are made in China  - the natural habitat of bamboo. Moso bamboo grows up to a metre a day here as it has the perfect conditions to thrive. Truthbrush know that shipping to Europe has a carbon footprint, although the amount is tiny for each brush, they have chosen to carbon offset shipping both from China to us and from us to you.

Why nylon bristles?

Truthbrush would love to find a genuine plastic-free alternative to nylon 6 bristles which could biodegrade. However, after extensive research 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. Truthbrush are constantly searching for an alternative, but until then we believe that a biodegradable handle with nylon bristles is much better than a totally plastic brush.

Will it feel different using a toothbrush made of bamboo instead of plastic?

Yes but only for a short time! 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 moulded into 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.

Will buying bamboo products be detrimental to pandas?

No – The Truthbrush is made from Moso bamboo, a type of bamboo which is inedible to pandas. The bamboo we use comes from an FSC managed sustainable forest in China.
