Bare bristles – Back to Nature

Long before we turned to chemicals and plastics, humans relied on the best of mother nature to maintain our dental health.

In fact for as long as we have been in existence we’ve been finding innovative ways to clean our teeth.  Some of these methods have faded into history, but others like the chew stick, or ‘miswak’ are still used and recognised for their benefits today.

The chew stick can be derived from a variety of trees including both the Salvadora Persica tree and the olive tree and its history is believed to date back 7000 years.

Not only does the use of miswak offer a natural mechanical alternative for dental health, it also features benefits as natural organic teeth whitener and an antibacterial for the oral cavity. In other words it acts as both a toothbrush and toothpaste.

At Bare bristles, we have harnessed this gift from mother nature, refining the traditional chew stick to offer a natural toothbrush and toothpaste that ultimately combines a piece of history with a modern twist.

Bare brush – The fastest growing gift of nature

Each year 30 million plastic toothbrushes make their way to landfill in Australia alone, accounting for an estimated 1000 tonnes of waste.

That’s a big environmental impact from a small item we use every day. And it doesn’t even take into account the pollution from the plastic production process.

There is a better way.

Barebrush is created from bamboo, sourced from eastern Asian forests.

It’s natural, biodegradable and sustainable.

It’s also just a small shift that makes a lasting environmental impact. We believe it’s a revolution, and one that starts with Barebrush and you.

Bare paste – Only the bare ingredients

Ever taken the time to peruse the ingredients of the toothpaste you ingest each day? It’s a lengthy, technical list of chemicals that are attributed to harmful effects.

Barepaste gets back to nature using a simple paste, a hint of Himalayan rock salt, and Salvadora Persica extract infused with mint.

No fluoride, no parabens, no triclosan, no titanium dioxide. No harmful effects. Just bare ingredients.

It’s only what you need and only what you deserve.
