As part of our core values we are mindful about the ecosytem of our company and how everything that we create has an effect on the world around us. ⠀
⠀
We are exploring a material known as bagasse, which is the natural, fibrous residue that remains after sugarcane stalks are processed to produce sugar. These fibers are strong, durable and 100% plant-based therefore can be compostable.⠀

Similar to its silver counter part, gold has always seen its fair share of recent popularity. But does it live up to the claim that it reduces 99.9% of bacterial infestation on your toothbrush? The only accessible study doesn’t state the percentage of effectiveness, however, it does claim that a nanogold covered toothbrush does significantly lower bristle contamination. ⠀

Silver has become a popular marketing tool in recent years claiming to reduce 99.9% of bacterial infestation on your toothbrush.

Toothbrushes began being mass produced in 1780, when William Addis left prison. While incarcerated, Addis wanted a way to clean his teeth other than using a rag doused in water, charcoal and salt. He fashioned a bone together with horse hair bristles and used that to clean his teeth while in jail. After his release, he founded the Addis Company, and his toothbrushes became wildly popular in London and across Europe. He manufactured 4 types of toothbrushes: Gents, Ladies, Child’s and Tom Thumb. His company, Wisdom Toothbrush / Addis Housewares, still exists today.⠀

In 1498, the Chinese made oral history with the introduction of the bristle brush, most closely akin to your modern instrument of oral hygiene. Using hog’s hair attached to bamboo sticks or animal’s bone, the Chinese concept eventually rode the Molar Express to Europe where the bristles were swapped for feathers and horse hair. ⠀
⠀
The first bristled toothbrush is credited to the Chinese Tang Dynasty, which existed between 619 and 907. The bristles were likely made of the coarse hairs of hogs indigenous to the area. Bones and bamboo were used as the handle, and had tiny holes drilled into one end where the hair was inserted. Toothbrushes with hog hair were exported from China through the 17th century, though Europeans found the bristles too firm for their gums and they began using horse hair as a softer alternative.⠀

To help people navigate this newly touch-anxious world, we thought; What if our oral care tools could help protect us instead? What if they were part of the solution, rather than part of the problem?⠀
⠀
We realized we would need to question everything – the materials, form and utility of a product that really hasn’t changed much since the 1930’s.  While our needs have dramatically evolved, this basic element in our lives hasn’t kept up.⠀
⠀
To meet our new demands, we integrated materials with targeted sanitation capabilities.  We reengineered the design for improved use and minimal discard.  Our focus was not about a look or adhering to conventional standards; we’re not here to “perfect” anyone’s smile, we’re here to protect everyone’s health. Through a clear sense of purpose and an innate desire to make things better we challenge the past and design for the future.⠀
⠀
⠀

A Material Difference

To help people navigate this newly touch-anxious world, we thought; What if our oral care tools could help protect us instead? What if they were part of the solution, rather than part of the problem?⠀ ⠀ We realized we would need to question everything – the materials, form and utility of a product that really hasn’t changed much since the 1930’s. While our needs have dramatically evolved, this basic element in our lives hasn’t kept up.⠀ ⠀ To meet our new demands, we integrated materials with targeted sanitation capabilities. We reengineered the design for improved use and minimal discard. Our focus was not about a look or adhering to conventional standards; we’re not here to “perfect” anyone’s smile, we’re here to protect everyone’s health. Through a clear sense of purpose and an innate desire to make things better we challenge the past and design for the future.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #freshbreath, #oralhealthcare, #dentalgram, #teethsmile, #advancedoralcare, #mouthcare, #oralhealthawareness, #loveyourteeth, #healthymouth, #oralhygiene, #disruptiveinnovation, #spotthenewtrend, #nycmade, #madeintaiwan⠀ ⠀ oligo.co⠀ © Oligo™ LLC 2020
