This beautiful bamboo toothbrush is a soft bristled toothbrush made of 62% castor bean oil and 38% nylon. The handle is 100% biodegradable and has a splash of eco-friendly white color on the end.
HOW IT’S LOW WASTE
The handle is 100% Forestry Stewardship Certified Sustainably Forested Moso Bamboo. The bristles are made of 62% castor bean oil and 38% nylon to meet the dental needs of a stiffer brush for some, though this is classified as a soft brush. The Truthbrush bamboo handle is dipped in an eco paint, tested and meets REACH legislation. Each brush is then given a coat of plant-based oil to give it a beautifully smooth and water resistant finish. Snap off toothbrush head or pull out bristles with needle-nose pliers or other similar tool and dispose of.
These bristles are not held in by mounded plastic so on occasion a bristle may loosen. If this occurs, just pull it out and dispose of. This is another sign that it’s a natural toothbrush.
WHY MOSO BAMBOO
Moso bamboo is a fast growing (up to a meter per day), earth and water-wise friendly, sustainable and a natural material. Moso bamboo is also NOT the bamboo that panda’s eat. Our bamboo comes from a sustainably managed forest that does not displace pandas.
This toothbrush goes well with our zero-waste Mosso Bamboo toothbrush holder.

SHIPS FROM Washington State, U. S. A.
- Do not leave your brush laying in water
- Let your brush dry out between uses
- Though not necessary, you may occasionally rub your brush with a plant-based oil. Beeswax is another great option for a non plant-based wood conditioner.
