My New Eco-Conscius Toothbrush from RADIUS -CLOSED-

Friday, March 26, 2010

I'm curious like a cat, so when I stumbled upon Radius website I was intrigued by the toothbrush selection that they offer at their website. They are not your ordinary toothbrushes, I tell you. Radius offer a revolutionary toothbrush design that makes brushing teeth fun, easier and more beneficial. Not to mention that it is eco-conscious too! Radius is a leader in natural products industry in personal care and renowned for its combination of innovative designs, premium materials, and eco-conscious manufacturing. They are also the first to accommodate both right-hand and left-hand toothbrush!! The distinctive wide surface area head design on Radius toothbrushes makes teeth more cleaner and makes it easy on the gums, putting less pressure to it - one of the biggest problem in brushing teeth.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends replacing your toothbrush every 3 or 4 months or when bristles are frayed. And this is where Radius toothbrushes stand out. Radius toothbrushes have up to 300% more bristles than usual toothbrush and a much more effective wide oval head that's designed to fit comfortably in any mouth. On average, Radius toothbrushes last 3 times longer than any other brands. And this means good news for your wallet ^o^


I was sent a pack of assorted toothbrushes from Radius to review. I was very excited to try it because I have gone from usual toothbrush to super-soft toothbrush to those battery-powered one but still no brand has satisfied me. The first time I used my new green Original Radius toothbrush I feel my teeth has never been so clean before! But before i get to that, first I'd like to let you know what I received from Radius:


This is (from left to right) the Original and the Scuba. Noticed why the right one has different head angle? Well, because it was for the left-handed! I'm a right handed but if I were a left-handed I would probably scream over this Scuba left-hand toothbrush because it's just so cool ^o^
The Scuba is available in right or left handed, it's also available in many colors. With it's non-slip rubber handle Scuba has a flexible bend-able Neck! Designed for harder brushers, the SCUBA flexes to reduce overall pressure on gums and teeth.

I was also sent baby and kids toothbrushes that include: Pure Baby that was designed for 6-18 months old baby, Totz for 18+ months old and Kidz for 6+ years.

What I love is each product has a different softness level of the bristles so they really meet the needs of each age level. Pure Baby has premium ultra soft bristles while the Totz has premium extra-soft bristles and the Kidz has very soft bristles. The Pure Baby is BPA Free and Dye Free so it's safe for your baby. It has a tapered handle for total control, with corner-less head and cushioned brushing which will makes it comfortable in your baby's mouth.
The Totz is also BPA Free and it's FDA Approved. It also has tapered handle but with smooth oval head to make it pressure-less brushing.
The Kidz has higher bristle count and larger surface area, it also has big ergonomic handle that makes it easier for kids to hold on to their toothbrush and it makes brushing more comfortable and less painful too. The asymmetric design automatically incline the bristles at 45 degree angle toward the gum-line which is recommended by dentists.

And now to the Original toothbrush that I have been using for the past 2 weeks.



Like most of Radius toothbrushes, this Original one also has a tilted (45 degree to gum line) head which is recommended by dentists. The Original has 6500 nylon bristles with a very high tuft count to help removes plaque more effectively. The Wide oval head distributes pressure, protects and massages sensitive gum tissue. And although it looked like plastic but it's actually made from trees which are processed from sustainable yield forests into 100% renewable resource plastic! Isn't that just fabulous to hear? I love using green products to help save our environment.

See the difference of the head compared to ordinary toothbrush? That's because Radius is not just a toothbrush it's a mouth brush! :)
I admit, at first it was kinda weird and uncomfortable brushing my teeth with Radius for the first time, because the head is so wide and I'm not used to it at all. But when I finished brushing my teeth I feel like my teeth are cleaned thoroughly and my mouth feels so refreshed. On my 2nd time using it I don't feel uncomfortable anymore, because it's actually fun! I found myself brushing my teeth longer than usual which is a good thing because ADA recommends brushing your teeth for 2 minutes while I usually just brush my teeth for around a minute. But now with Radius I hope I qualify ADA recommendation ;)

I love the soft yet very thin bristles and it does increase softness and efficacy of brushing with 65% more bristle tufts than ordinary toothbrush. And the large handle prevents excess pressure due to over-gripping the toothbrush handle like I used to with my old toothbrush.

Overall, I love using Radius and if it's ADA and dentists recommended than I also recommend it to you, you will feel a new experience in toothbrushing and you might never want to change toothbrushes again :)
All Radius toothbrushes are packaged in a 100% recyclable card printed with vegetable inks.
Gotta love that!
