A TOOTHBRUSH WITH SOFT BRISTLES RECOMMENDED BY DENTISTS
We met Nassim by pur coincidence through our conversations about ecology and respecting nature. We both share the same idea that there is a growing need for respectful consumption and a better relationship with our planet.
Smiloh x Comme Avant
We created this beautiful toothbrush as an alternative to industrial-produced ones.
This bamboo toothbrush has a biodegradable and compostable handle which is imported and completed by Nassim in Valenciennes, in northern France.
Bamboo (impossible to find in France) is imported from Asia, more specifically from India. He uses a natural bamboo strand grown in plots that are separated and isolated from the local natural fauna. This way, this bamboo doesn’t participate in deforestation.
Nassim cultivates moso bamboo that pandas or other animals can’t eat. This bamboo grows without fertilisers or pesticides because it is naturally quick to grow. This kind of bamboo inhibits the growth of micro-organisms and therefore viruses.
To compost the toothbrush handle, you just need need to remove the bristles and place the handle in a compost bin.
A biodegradable and vegan toothbrush
The toothbrush's bristles are Class 4 Nylon, pleasant and natural for your mouth. They do not contain any bisphenol A, which is known to be harmful.
This is the best current alternative to animal hair.
The bristles are then infused in natural charcoal. The charcoal allows to break plaque and eliminate toxins without harming your teeth or gums. It also gets rid of bad breath by absorbing the bacteria. It naturally whitens your teeth.
The bristles are attached to the toothbrush's handle without any chemical glues. Instead, we chose to use small metal fasteners that aren’t harmful to our health.
A safe alternative and a small step towards a healthier planet
This toothbrush has the same lifespan as classical plastic toothbrushes. All dentists advise changing your toothbrush every three months, or once the bristles are damaged.
Packaged in a small cardboard box (also biodegradable and compostable), this toothbrush is an alternative to throwing away millions of plastic toothbrushes each year.
Every time you purchase a toothbrush, Smiloh gives a toothbrush to a French, Indian, or Peruvian NGOs.
