Where responsible production, quality dental care and innovative design meet - our wooden toothbrushes come with a 100% biodegradable handle in 100% recyclable packaging.
Liebwerk toothbrushes are 100% Swiss from beginning to end, starting with local FSC-certified Swiss beech wood all the way through to production on Swiss soil. Our wooden toothbrushes come with one of three beautiful engraving designs inspired by our fascination with beauty of nature.
We recommend changing your toothbrush after about two months of use. Simply snap off the head of the toothbrush and dispose it in your household waste. The handle is 100% biodegradable and can be composted.
Unlike Chinese bamboo toothbrushes, Liebwerk handles are made of FSC-certified Swiss beech wood. Its hardness, wear-resistance, strength, and excellent bending capabilities make beech wood a great recourse of wood. Moreover, it is the most readily available type of hardwood from sustainable forests.
Your teeth will love it
Liebwerk wooden toothbrushes come with soft bristles which is the safest option for teeth and gums. Soft bristles provide gentle and thorough cleaning and prevent unintentional damage to your tooth enamel caused by hard brushes. The rounded tips of our bristles protect sensitive gums from gingival abrasions. Soft end-rounded bristles have been clinically proven to be effective in plaque and food particles removal without causing damage to mouth or teeth, and we ensured that our toothbrushes conform to the best standards.
Further, we use plant-based wax to make the wooden handle smooth for a greater cleaning experience. Wax also protects the handle from humidity and increases the longevity of your toothbrush.
Towards a sustainable future
We’re very serious about our pledge to respect the planet and minimize the impact of our production. In keeping with this mission, we donate 5% of all sales to WWF Switzerland – one of the largest environmental organizations in the world which is actively involved in health and environmental projects locally and worldwide. In order to address the use of wood in our toothbrushes we support the rain forestry project, devoted to protecting and preserving the tropical rainforests.
The goal of WWF’s rainforest project is to ensure protection and sustainable use of these recourses by the way of forest conservation and coordination of activities of everyone involved: from governments and producers to the end consumers. This thorough approach includes protection of species together with ecological and socially responsible policies. Inter alia, WWF supports sustainable use of wood and reforestation in Madagascar, implementation of energy-efficient cook stoves in China and engages local producers to compensate for the CO2 emissions.
