Interchangeable brush head toothbrush II

Interchangeable brush head toothbrush II – completely bio-based

The yaweco interchangeable brush head toothbrush II impresses with its simple yet modern design. The brush configuration with high and low individual bristle groups makes it quick and easy to clean even in areas that are hard to reach. The bristles are perfectly rounded for this purpose.

It is quick and easy to change the brush head: just press the white button. The toothbrush can be used as a tongue scraper without its head. The small component at the upper part of the handle (edge) is well suited for cleaning your tongue.

The toothbrushes have been tested to ensure that they are safe to use (trade-compatible). This makes it possible to confirm that that they are free of PAHs, phthalates (softening agents), heavy metals, bisphenols, etc.

There is a wide range of yaweco interchangeable toothbrush II versions. It is available with nylon filaments (PA 10.10 with castor oil) in medium. All variants are colour-sorted according to 3 handle colours. By using a brush head with natural bristles from a refill pack you get a toothbrush with natural bristles. There are refill packs for all of the brush versions. The refill packs have 4 small brush heads per package and are well-priced with ecologically sound credentials

 

Information on the composition of the product

Use of alternative materials in all components

The brush head is identical to that of the aforementioned interchangeable brush head toothbrush I. It consists of biopolymers (more than 60%) on the basis of sugar components as well as mineral fillers, natural waxes and biodegradable additives.

The bristles (filaments) consist of the base material PA 10.10 and contain castor oil instead of crude oil.

Regarding the natural bristles, it should be noted that they come from a type of pig that lives in China and has bristles ideal for the use in brushes. The bristles are taken from pigs that have already died, which means that no animal is mistreated to obtain the bristles. The material for the bristles is cooked and thereby sterilised and made germ-free. They are packaged securely and airtight for the transport.

 The handle, including the button, consists of a biodegradable material with a biopolymer content of more than 60% as well as mineral fillers, waxes, etc.

The packaging consists of cardboard, 90% of which is made of recycled materials as well as a film in the cap that consists of bio-PET (mono-ethylene-glycol made of sugar cane). In the future, the packaging will be switched to a version consisting entirely of cardboard.
