About meanings

About toothbrushes


We are happy to acknowledge that there’s a growing awareness and search for organic personal care products and vegan toothbrushes as much as people are concerned with what they eat, put in their bodies and the environmental impact of their actions.

Chemicals in personal care productscan be associated with a wide variety of concerns and consciously we try to refuse and find cleaner and eco-friendlier alternatives. Choosing an organic or vegan toothbrush is already such a wonderful step to make a difference.

First of all, you should know that there’sno legal definition or requirement to label a toothbrush as natural, organic or vegan. Butthere is a certification from different entities depending on the countries. The clearest way of understanding is always to check the brands’ credentials to assess their values.


Therefore it is important to decode the following buzzwords:


natural organic bamboo toothbrush


Organic and Natural Toothbrush

The meaning of an organic product

Simply stated organic means to be grown or produced without the use of pesticides, synthetic ingredients, antibiotics, and genetically modified organisms. So in the case of a toothbrush, it means that organic toothbrush components were grown without the use of pesticides. 

Most of the countries have their own standards to define products as organic. But overall organic products abide by protecting natural resources, conserving biodiversity and using approved substances. 

A personal care product can be deemed organic if it contains agricultural ingredients. Once again the clearest way of understanding is always to check the label and credentials.

Also, organic products are sourced and manufactured using sustainable, organically-farmed ingredients and are not tested on animals, free from harsh chemicals, nanoparticles, parabens, synthetic dyes, and artificial fragrances. 


The meaning of a natural product

As for natural, it means that the product must contain no artificial or synthetic ingredients, hormones or other additives, and it must be only minimally processed to maintain ingredient purity. In other words, allowed ingredients come from or are made from a renewable resource found in nature (flora, fauna, mineral), with absolutely no petroleum compounds. 


What is a natural toothbrush

As for a natural toothbrush, it means all components are made with at least 95% natural ingredients, excluding water.  


What is an organic toothbrush

Like our bamboo toothbrush, an organic toothbrush is a toothbrush that the handle is made from 100% organic Moso bamboo, meaning it is grown organically without the use of any kind of chemicals or pesticides.


Keep your eyes open!

  • Water, salt or clay are not organic ingredients.
  • It’s highly probable that several unpronounceable ingredientsthat sound like chemicals are not organic either, but they may be natural.

    Vegan and Cruelty-free Toothbrush

    The meaning of a vegan product

    There is no legal regulation on products labeled as ‘vegan’be aware that there are several logos and claimson product packaging relating to whether something is vegan. They apply to cosmetics, foods, household cleaning products, clothing, and accessories. Toothbrushes are included too. 


    The meaning of a cruelty-free product

    Cruelty-free means “not tested on animals”. Cruelty-free personal care goods differ from vegan products. Vegan doesn’t contain anything that comes from an animal or is produced by an animal, but it doesn’t mean that they’re automatically cruelty-free. 


    What is a vegan toothbrush

    Simply put, a vegan toothbrush does not contain any animal extracts or animal by-productsin the ingredients or the manufacturing process.


    What is a cruelty-free toothbrush

      Cruelty-free toothbrushes refer to components that have never been tested on animals.


      Keep your eyes open!

      • Glycerin, collagen, gelatin or retinol are common cosmetic ingredients derived from animal sources.

      How do The Bam&Boo Toothbrushes qualify?

      Our bamboo toothbrushes are 96% natural. Anyway, we are 100% organic as well as vegan and cruelty-free. As far as we know the only 100% green and functional option for bristles are animal hair (pig or horse) which we don't approve. So, we are constantly searching for alternatives to reach the 100% natural.


      Pandas neither ingest nor inhabit the Moso bamboo forests, so we are keeping our friends safe and sound in the manufacturing of our bamboo toothbrushes. As for the bristles made of nylon 6 BPA, it’s not as green as we would like but it’s still the best way to grant good oral care.

      Rest assured that we are truly nature enthusiasts and Bam&Boo toothbrush is committed to caring for the planet and saving animal life unlike plastic, which accounts for a ripple effect in the marine lifecycle. 


      We are extremely proud and hopeful in our community for taking small steps to make the world more eco-friendly each day.
