Comparison between Plastic toothbrush and a Bamboo Toothbrush
Properties of a Bamboo Toothbrush
Charcoal infused soft bristles
Charcoal is known to be naturally porous and hence is used to trap bacteria and dirt to effectively clean teeth and gums
So, at the microscopic level, the bacteria and dirt are absorbed and removed as against being just swept away in the case of using conventional bristles
This cleansing action of this activated charcoal also helps get rid of such bacteria that causes bad breadth and hence gets your teeth clean and fresh in a more natural way (toothpaste or toothpowder helps in this process)
This activated charcoal also absorbs so called tannins that binds to your teeth and causes staining on teeth. Hence, regular brushing through Bamboo toothbrush helps in whitening of the teeth
BPA free bristles
BPA (bisphenol A) is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain types of plastic and resins since 1950s.
BPA is known to cause few health effects on the brain and prostate gland of foetuses, infants and children. There is also a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.
Naturally anti-bacterial body
Bamboo is known as naturally anti-bacterial as it destroys harmful bacteria that penetrates its surface
Handle goes back to the Earth
Bamboo is a type of grass and since there is no harmful chemicals used, it is in its most natural form and hence mixes with soil as good as any normal tree trunk would in almost any environmental conditions
