The luxurious RADIUS® Original® blends form and function seamlessly. Not only is it accepted by the American Dental Association® for prevention of gingivitis and the removal of plaque, the RADIUS Original€™s iconic design won it a spot in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institute National Design Museum.
At RADIUS® we do things a little differently.
Just like other everyday products that have €œevolved€? through beautiful, functional design (think Dyson vacuum cleaners and Lumbar chairs), every one of our products is totally unique €” devised for a specialized purpose, utilizing different materials and one-of-a-kind manufacturing techniques €” because refining and evolving the tools of your daily life is what we€™re all about
Bristles that are better for you
RADIUS wanted to steer clear of the petroleum-derived versions used by most other toothbrush manufacturers, which are saturated with harmful chemicals and toxins you wouldn€™t want going anywhere near your mouth. We also decided to omit natural bristles from our toothbrushes, as they€™re typically harder and harsher on the gums, and break frequently and easily.
Our solution is to use dye-free bristles made from vegetable- based nylon, shipped all the way from Europe to our specialist bristle manufacturer.
Made from castor oil, they absorb very little moisture and have the ability to bounce back to their original shape after use, making them softer and longer-lasting than the alternatives.
Bioplastic handles that are better for the environment
Most toothbrushes use common plastics €” such as fossil-fuel plastics derived from petroleum €” to construct their handles. It€™s the standard way of doing things, but RADIUS toothbrushes are anything but.
At RADIUS, we use bioplastics, which are derived from renewable biomass sources (like vegetable oils and timber), agricultural byproducts, or even recycled plastic. Why is this so important? Because bioplastics are not only better for your health, they€™re better for th e environment, as well, requiring less fossil fuels and energy to produce (resulting in fewer greenhouse gases). Plus, they€™re mostly biodegradable, so they won€™t contribute to long-term waste in our landfills.
Here€™s a breakdown of our most popular toothbrushes and how their handles are made:
