    The bristles can be recycled through our recycling program
    Biodegradable packaging
    Clear blister seal is made of PLA (aka “bioplastic") which is a biodegradable plant-based plastic made from corn starch.
    BPA free
    PVC free

    Disposal Instructions:
    1. Break off toothbrush head.
    2. Discard thoughtfully. Take advantage of Grin's recycling program. Otherwise, you can check with your local recycling programs to see if suitable.
    3. Place the rest of the toothbrush and packaging into your home compost, or if not possible, in your rubbish bin.

    It takes on average, 1 year for the toothbrush handle to break down into a chalk-like stick in a home compost or 90 days to break down in a commercial compost.
    Whichever way you dispose of your Grin toothbrush, you can be confident that the toothbrush won’t be in landfill for hundreds of years to come - unlike many common toothbrushes today.

    Please note: Grin toothbrushes are made from corn starch, a naturally occurring material that is robust for personal use, though may not have the strength of a traditional plastic toothbrush. Caution needs to be used when brushing teeth as heavy/hard brushing may cause the head to snap off. Please note that dentists recommend minimal pressure when brushing teeth to avoid issues like receding gums, enamel erosion and increased sensitivity of the teeth.

  • Ecofloss - Bamboo Charcoal dental floss
    It is slightly thicker which help remove plaque and bacteria from between your teeth. It may take a little getting used to being thicker, but it works wonders.

    The bottle is recycled glass and can be recycled. But even better is it is reusable, over and over again.

    This is a degradable bamboo charcoal floss with polyester base. It is degradable but read this as being as degradable as every other product that claims it is biodegradable. By this we mean it will break down faster that normal plastic materials but does this by breaking down into smaller parts.

    We offer this product as it is amazing to use and provides a vegan floss option.

    Based on customer feedback, we've improved our toothpaste lids. Our new 3mm flat lids make for a more controlled gel extract, however, the lid can be a little hard to open for the first few times so kids may need a little help.

    Key ingredients:
    Organic Calendula Oil
    This sunshine yellow flower doesn’t just look pretty – it’s pretty powerful, too. Calendula oil contains potent antimicrobial and antioxidant compounds that are effective in killing harmful, cavity-causing bacteria. The anti-inflammatory properties of calendula oil also make it gentle and soothing on developing teeth and gums.


    Organic Sea Salt
    Ever wondered why dentists suggest rinsing with saltwater after a dental procedure? The alkaline nature of sea salt increases the pH balance of your mouth, creating an environment that bacteria really, really hate. The sea salt we’ve put in Grin is certified organic, so it retains more of the good stuff such as calcium, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus and iron.


    Organic Aloe Leaf Extract
    We all know how good Aloe Vera feels on sensitive, stressed skin – but did you know it’s great for oral health, too? A study published in the May/June 2009 issue of General Dentistry found that Aloe Vera gel was just as effective as regular toothpaste in cleaning teeth and eliminating cavity-causing bacteria. Unlike regular toothpaste, however, Aloe Vera is all-natural and contains no harsh abrasives – making it a gentler choice for your little one’s mouth.
