Is your toothbrush BPA free? BPA first came into the limelight a decade ago when it was found in many baby bottles and plastic wares. BPA disrupts our hormonal systems and cause havoc in the early brain development of our young children.
In recent years, more manufacturers are seeking cheaper manufacturing processes and materials to lower their production cost. Cheap plastic and nylon derivatives which potentially contain toxins and unhealthy chemicals, like BPA, PVC, phthalates could be found in our everyday toothbrushes. It is not a question that we commonly asked our dentists about.
Day by day and a little by little, these unhealthy chemicals from our toothbrushes might be leeching into our bodies without us noticing it.
Could toxins be lurking in our humble toothbrushes? Do you know the materials that are being used to make them? There are healthy alternatives. Toothbrushes that do not contain BPA, PVC, Latex and Phthalates.
Feel good and better using a toxic free toothbrush! I have been using Radius Source Tooth brush for a few months now and loving it! Firstly, it is gorgeous! I call it my “spa tooth brush”. It is petroleum and palm oil free. It is manufactured on solar powered facilities in the States which do not rely on fossil fuels. One of the rare few tooth brushes that are still manufactured in the USA.
When I’m done with it, I simply discard the brush head and keep the handle which made up 93% of the toothbrush. Reduce waste? You bet!
And do you know that the bristles are made from vegetables that last 3 times longer than normal nylon bristles? Feel good with your eco toothbrush? Check!
Radius Source toothbrushes come in different handles:
Recycled US dollar notes (Money)
The bristles come in Soft or Super Soft. It’s time to feel good brushing your teeth. Maybe you will even look forward to waking up in the morning.

Why Does BPA-Free Matter?
We strive to make our products as safe and toxin-free as possible, seeking out materials that don’t include any suspect or harmful chemicals, or unnecessary additives.
Like, for example, Bisphenol A (commonly referred to as BPA) — a carbon-based synthetic compound that interferes with your hormones in a detrimental way, and is proven to be particularly damaging to the health of babies and young children.
In other words, BPA isn’t something you want anywhere near your mouth, let alone your child’s. And yet it’s commonly found in hard plastics like those used to produce water bottles, food packaging and even your typical toothbrushes.
We can assure you that RADIUS® products do not contain BPA. Never have. Never will.
