Smiti does it best to use environment friendly materials as many as possible. Here is what we do.
- Kraft Paper Box - All our packages are using this material which can be recycled. Also, our package size is reduced to 40% of traditional toothbrush's size. This reduction can dramatically improve carbon footprint over regular toothbrush
- PLA - The replaceable toothbrush head is made by this material. Poly Lactic Acid is a biodegradable* thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources such as corn starch. This material passed FDA(21 CFR 177.2420) and EU((82/711/EEC), (93/8/EEC), EN1186)
- 6061 Aluminum Alloy - Our deco and the handle are made by this. 6061 is commonly used for the construction of the aircraft structure, aluminum cans for the packaging of food and beverages, automotive parts, such as the chassis of the Audi A8. It is a safe, recyclable and long lasting material. Reusing the brush handle keeps overall waste to a minimum
- Nano Paint - The coating on the 6061 Aluminum Alloy comes from this nano paint. This nano paint has RoHS/WEEE/ELV/REACH Compliant. It is anti-fingerprint, anti-graffiti, anti-scratch and anti-abrasion which is easy to clean and has longer lasting time
