Hot: Jack N’ Jill Biodegradable Cornstarch Toothbrushes & Organic Toothpastes for Kids
I’ve been on the lookout for some new toothbrushes for the girls and am in love with Australian brand Jack N’ Jill’s eco and child friendly designs. The ergonomic handles which feel great in your hands are made from 100% corn starch and feature cute a cool bunny and hippo motifs. When it’s time to dispose of them, break off the head and put in for recycling and the rest of the handle should break down within about 3 months.
The other hit is their range of toothpastes in five flavours, strawberry, banana, raspberry, blueberry, and blackcurrant. Made with certified organic flavour extracts which are suitable for vegans, gluten free, and kosher plus featuring calendula which is known for its anti-inflammatory and natural healing properties, they have a gel like consistency and taste great. Unsurprisingly, the girls want to spend a long time brushing their teeth…
Beautifully packaged as well – it’s literally a delight to open the postage bag – these have become a firm family favourite. Toothbrushes are £3.49, toothpastes are £4.99 and they also sell silicone finger brushes with a dimple side massager for babies, £2.49. Love it.
