BOO Adult Replaceable Head Bamboo Toothbrush
This adult toothbrush with a detachable head, is available with soft and medium strength bristles. It is eco-friendly, vegan and made of bamboo and with nylon-6 bristles derived from castor oil.
It’s handle is reusable and you can replace the brush head with a new one, thereby helping us to get closer to zero waste dental care. It offers the perfect switch from plastic toothbrushes.
Guaranteed BPA-free and biodegradable (95%).
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO STOP USING PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSHES:
Most plastic toothbrushes are neither biodegradable nor recyclable as they are made up of various different types of plastic and that along with their small size makes them complicated to recycle.
WHY WE HAVE CHOSEN THIS BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH WITH A REPLACEABLE HEAD:
Note: This toothbrush contains plastic bristles. We have decided to sell it because we feel that it is the best vegan alternative to 100% plastic toothbrushes.
This toothbrush is a great alternative to conventional toothbrushes made of 100% plastic.
It’s head is detachable and replaceable, resulting in a saving of more than 50% of the material required when compared to other bamboo brushes.
The detachable head of this toothbrush can be easily replaced, it is long and narrow to make it easier to reach those chewing molars, the backside of your teeth as well as those tricky to get to areas.
The nylon-6 bristles are available in different strengths (soft and medium) and various colours, so every member of the household can choose their favourite.
The toothbrush bristles are made from nylon-6, however they do NOT contain Bisphenol A (BPA). BPA is common additive, a known endocrine disruptor and potentially very harmful to our health. It is present in many plastic toothbrushes. The brush is available with soft and flexible bristles to protect sensitive gums and also with medium strength bristles. The nylon-6 used to make these toothbrushes does not contain petroleum derivatives as it is made using castor oil.
The toothbrush handle is light, ergonomic, made from MOSO bamboo and compostable.
The BOO toothbrush handle is very light and soft to the touch. It is 100% natural, made from MOSO bamboo - Phyllostachys edulis - (also known as winter bamboo), a type of bamboo that is not consumed by Giant Pandas.
Why bamboo? Basically because it is biodegradable, compostable and has exceptional properties. For example, it grows and thrives without the need for fertilizers, pesticides or even watering. Bamboo also has natural antibacterial properties that make it perfect for helping in the fight against dental plaque.
Originally from China, BOO uses bamboo that come from eco-responsible crops, that are grown with respect for the people and forests that surround them.
The BOO logo is printed using a laser, avoiding the need for chemical inks.

TIPS AND ADVICE FOR BOO TOOTHBRUSH USE AND CARE:
If the toothbrush starts to get lighter in colour or turns white, particularly at the tip, please don’t worry, it’s normal. The bamboo used is a natural material and it has not been varnished.
Like with any all toothbrushes, we recommend you change your bamboo toothbrush every 3 months.
Store your toothbrush in a dry place. Avoid standing it up in a glass, as this is where water and dampness tend to fester.
Cleaning the bristles is the same as with a plastic toothbrush. If there is some toothpaste build-up, rinse and rub the bristles under clean warm water.
Recycling and composting:
In order to recycle and compost your toothbrush, remove the bristles with tweezers or pliers. They are attached to the brush head with a metal staple. Just pull hard to release the staple. Then you can throw the bamboo handle directly in the compost, as it is 100% biodegradable and will breakdown over the next 6 months. The nylon-6 bristles and the metal staples are 100% recyclable. Please check with your local council to see whether you can throw them directly into the recycling bin or if you should take them to a specific recycling centre.
