The Humble Brush handle is made out of 100% biodegradable bamboo which naturally provides a non-slip surface. Humble brush features an ergonomic grip and it’s sleek and timeless design makes it the perfect must-have accessory in every bathroom.
Did you know that bamboo is not a tree but the fastest growing plant on earth? It is naturally antibacterial which means that there is no need to use fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation. The Humble Brush bamboo is naturally grown to the desired height and is harvested in mainland in China. MOSO-bamboo grows leaves from 5 metres and up. Since pandas only eat leaves they can reach, they don’t eat the bamboo that Humble Brush harvests to make toothbrushes.
The processing, production and packaging are all done by hand. The bamboo gets cut into strips, steamed and stripped of the tough outer layer. It dries in the sun and then gets cut into workable pieces. The outside of the material gets stripped again, and the sides are hand-crafted to form the optimal shape. Holes are drilled into the head, the entire brush is sanded and our logo is laser burned into the handle. It is treated with natural wax and the bristles are inserted. After packaging your Humble Brush is ready for shipping.
The reason they use nylon bristles is because Humble Brush has to work well as a toothbrush. After extensive testing and prototypes, using a more degradeable nylon was the only answer. All products therefore use Nylon 6 which degrades faster than lower grades of nylon. The bristles have been verified to be free from the toxin BPA (Bisphenol A). Nylon 6 is a material ideally suited for dentistry but also degrades over time and can be processed through regular waste channels. Importantly, there is no other plant-based material that would allow to use your brush for the recommended three months.
