New right angle Bamboo Piksters

Piksters are pleased to announce the world's first bamboo interdental brush offering a sustainable option to plastic brushes.


Whilst recognising that regular Piksters use minimal plastic when compared to other interdental brushes, Piksters can now offer an eco-friendly solution for consumers who are deeply concerned about the impact of plastics on the environment. New RIGHT ANGLE Bamboo Piksters are 99% biodegradable. The handles are made from sustainably grown and fully biodegradable bamboo. All packaging is paper based and comes from 100% recycled and biodegradable materials. The protective cap and colour coded brush tip is made from PLA which is derived from cornstarch and is also 100% biodegradable. Even the printing inks are eco-safe soy based. It is only the high-quality brush and coated wire which is non-degradable (1%). No eco alternative brush assembly can achieve the same level of optimal cleaning, strength and safety as the Piksters special coated stainless-steel wire and nylon bristles. The long handle of the new RIGHT ANGLE Bamboo Piksters is another first as all other long handles have invariably been made from thicker plastic. The long bamboo handle is rigid yet thin and also delivers the perfect angle for interdental gaps around posterior teeth without the need to bend the wire. The easy-to-hold handle delivers excellent grip and cleaning without getting fingers in the mouth. RIGHT ANGLE Bamboo Piksters are available in sizes 00, 1, 3 and 5 in packs of 6 and in a Variety Pack of 4 brushes, one each of size 00, 1, 3, and 5.
