Swissdent Bio toothbrushes are packaged in an ecological three-pack to avoid plastic waste. The toothbrushes are made up to and including the bristles of bio-based plastic, which was produced with castor oil instead of the usual fossil raw materials (crude oil).
Castor oil was chosen for the biobased plastic because it grows in the Mediterranean region (unlike biobased plastic made from sugar cane, for example, which has to be imported from overseas). Castor oil is a renewable natural product obtained from the seeds of the wonder tree Ricinus Communis. The raw material is used neither as food nor as animal feed and its cultivation does not compete with the cultivation of food crops.
