As we are getting closer to our @Kickstarter launch we are finalizing materials, logistics and what pre/post Kickstarter looks like. ⠀
⠀
We wanted to share some of the final renders of our finished product (potential handle material, patent pending snapfit mechanism, overall design) . We’ll have real world photos coming later this month.⠀

Our removable bristle heads will be using a bioplastic in order to reduce the amount of waste that is produced from our products. We are working with several partners to determine the best possible solution for our Kickstarter launch in April. Thank you for all the support. ⠀

While bioplastics are not a full proof solution there is inherent value in exploring ways we can reduce our carbon footprint. As more research on the impact of our current plastic usage comes to light, consumers and manufacturers need a ubiquitous material and bioplastics have emerged as the potential alternative.⠀

What is bioplastic? Bioplastic simply refers to plastic made from plant or other biological material instead of petroleum. ⠀
⠀
There are two main types of bioplastics:⠀
⠀
PLA (polyactic acid) is typically made from the sugars in corn starch, cassava or sugarcane. It is biodegradable, carbon-neutral and edible. ⠀
⠀
PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoate) is made by microorganisms, sometimes genetically engineered, that produce plastic from organic materials.⠀

As we mentioned in the first post for this week, we are ⠀
partnering with a company that uses an antimicrobial ⠀
coating called CuVerro™ Shield. ⠀
⠀
Engineered for durability and strength with bactericidal efficacy, CuVerro® is EPA-registered, unlike additives. U.S. EPA testing proves copper's efficacy against infectious bacteria. Copper is the first solid surface material to receive this type of EPA registration.⠀
⠀
CuVerro™ is antimicrobial, but it's also bactericidal, meaning it KILLS bacteria and does not simply inhibit bacterial growth.⠀
⠀
CuVerro is the only class of solid surface materials registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to actively kill bacteria. The antibacterial properties work 24/7 in between cleaning, never washing out or wearing away, making CuVerro ideally suited for commonly touched surfaces where bacteria is a concern. Easy to maintain, CuVerro is tarnish-resistant and will not oxidize and turn green like pure copper.⠀

A biocide is defined, in the European legislation, as a chemical substance or microorganism intended to destroy, deter, render harmless, or exert a controlling effect on any harmful organism.⠀
⠀
Biocidal products are divided into different product types, based on their intended use. According to the HSE there are 22 use cases ranging from human hygeine to drinking water disinfection. ⠀
⠀
The biocide we are using is copper which can also be found in pipes used for water and kitchen tools. Copper is also useful as a biocide because it reduces the growth of bacteria, is durable and has a high level of corrosion resistance. ⠀

We hear the term “antimicrobial” a lot in the media today but what does it actually mean? We want to demystify industry jargon so you can understand what our products do but also what they do for you. ⠀
⠀
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines antimicrobial as “destroying or inhibiting the growth of microorganisms and especially pathogenic microorganisms.” ⠀
⠀
In other words, antimicrobial technologies minimise the presence of bacteria, mold, and fungi. With the additional use of active biocidal (we will explain biocides in the next post) ingredients, within the product’s surface, antimicrobial products can offer longer lasting protection than its antibacterial counterpart. ⠀
⠀
Why is this relevant? We will be using a technology known as CuVerro™ Shield that is an antimicrobial coating on our toothbrush. We’ll provide more information on this technology in this series. ⠀
