The Humble Brush is the Humble Co.'s first and flagship product. Designed and developed by dentists in Sweden, Humble Brush is an effective and safe toothbrush. It also looks cool and has a natural feel. Although each toothbrush is hand-crafted, the price is comparable to the mass-produced plastic ones.
At the same time, Humble Brush addresses two big problems with toothbrushes today:
- They leave an environmental footprint: 5 billion hard plastic toothbrushes are produced every year in a toxin-emitting process and most of them end up in landfills or in the oceans. Forever! We dispose of our toothbrushes as if the planet is not our home.
- Not everyone has one. Many people living in remote rural regions of the world don't have a toothbrush and they are also the ones who don't have access to any form of dentistry. Their diet is becoming sweeter, thanks to infiltration of western food products, but they don't have the knowledge or means to deal with the resulting tooth decay. The result is often pain, tooth loss, missing school or work, disability and impaired psychological and physical development.
These are two problems that we in the developed world have generated and until now, have not addressed or taken responsibility for.
When you buy a Humble Brush, not only does one go to a child in need, but all proceeds of Humble sales go toward funding essential care for the most vulnerable.
The Humble Co. Dental Floss
As many as 700 million plastic floss containers are discarded each year! Heumble Co has eliminated the need for a plastic case, as the packaging itself becomes your floss dispenser.
The Humble Co. dental floss is strong and shred-resistant with a light coating of natural candelilla wax for improved performance and natural xylitol to encourage enamel re-mineralisation.
50 metres of floss is available in Mint, Lemon or Cinnamon.
The Humble Co. Dental Floss Picks
Humble floss picks make flossing a piece of cake! The double threading ensures that food debris is effectively removed whilst the shape of the pick promotes easy access to those hard to reach places. Much easier to get into tight spaces and easier to remove without shredding. Made primarily of corn-starch and packaged in eco-friendly paper packaging, Humble Floss picks aim to minimise the stress on our environment whilst providing a first-class experience.
Black is charcoal infused but what's great is that users can see how much debris is coming out. White is great for checking bleeding gums.
The Humble Co. Chewing Gum
Did you know regular chewing gum has plastic particles? Not Humble Co. Chewing Gum!
Humble Co. Chewing Gum does, however, contain Xylitol. This means that the natural sugarless gum is not just for fresh breath. It has health benefits that have been widely studied too.
Chewing gum increases the flow of saliva. Saliva naturally protects our teeth by maintaining the pH of the mouth and preventing minerals in our tooth enamel from dissolving. Chewing a piece of gum after eating helps clean the teeth of debris and neutralise the acids released by the bacteria in plaque. If we didn't have saliva, our teeth would rapidly decay!
The ingredients of the gum are important because they enter the body through the walls of your mouth. And, because chewing gum remains in your mouth longer than the food you eat or drink, you are actually bathing your teeth in the ingredients. That's why it's important to chew a gum free of sugar.
Chewing a piece of natural xylitol gum after snacks and in between meals is recommended by dentists as an easy and delicious way to a healthier mouth and fresher breath.
Humble Co. Chewing Gum is available in packs of 10 pieces in Mint, Tropical Fruit, Lemon or Salty Licorice.
The Humble Co. Bamboo Cotton Buds
Cotton Buds are one of the most serious sources of marine pollution!
Switch to bamboo and reduce plastic waste whilst colour coding you practice. The Humble Co. Bamboo Cotton Buds are available in white, black, purple and blue. You can colour code what materials are being dispensed. Avoid applying topical gel instead of Vaseline! The Cotton Swabs look modern, less threatening and are fully biodegradable.
