Liquid Wood Toothbrush Mug – Hydrophil
Our Hydrophil toothbrush mug is not only the perfect sturdy companion for your bamboo toothbrushes, you can also use this mug while on trips away and in the kitchen.
The food-safe and BPA-free mug is produced from an innovative Arboblend® material in Hamburg which is made from a blend of cellulose, sugar cane, lignin and natural waxes.
This bio-material is a much more sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to plastic, while matching it’s strength and sturdiness.
- Made from renewable materials
- Food safe & BPA free
- Sturdy and strong
Material – Liquid Wood
The bio-material Arboblend®, also known as liquid wood, was developed in the 1990s. Various proportions of renewable raw materials give it special properties, while useful natural fibres (such as cellulose) ensure elastic strength, biopolymers (made of lignin, starch or “Green PE”), together with natural waxes, contribute to the necessary strength and coating. When it is heated up, the liquid wood is malleable, like conventional plastic, and is processed further using an injection moulding process.
This Hydrophil toothbrush mug is food-safe as well as free from mineral oil and BPA. By processing renewable raw materials and pollutant-free disposal, this material, in contrast to conventional plastics, does not contribute to a shortage of finite raw materials, such as mineral oil.
Cellulose – This makes up the fibre content of Arboblend®. Just like in the cell walls of the plants, this renewable raw material forms the basis for an elastic natural product.
Lignin – This is the main component of solid wood. Stored in a basic structure made of cellulose, this macromolecule ensures the high compressive strength and durability of Arboblend®
Natural Waxes – This penetrates the composite material, seal its surfaces and ultimately makes the toothbrush mugs so watertight, that it is easy and quick to clean.
Sugar Cane – This provides additional components, such as the so-called green polyethylene (Green PE), which also increases the strength of Arboblend® without needing to use mineral oil for example.
Hydrophil’s liquid wood toothbrush case comes packaged in recyclable card.

Three friends, Christoph, Wanja and Sebastian from Hamburg, often found themselves discussing environmental issues, being passionate about making a difference by helping the world rather than harming it they came up with Hydrophil. An innovative business that provides eco-friendly hygiene products that are produced using minimal water consumption and sustainable materials.
Minimal water consumption means to use methods that don’t use water unnecessarily or excessively and to be conscious of how much water we are using. This is priority for Hydrophil which is why they only use sustainable materials that are grown without artificial irrigation such as bamboo. They also only use colours that do not contain chemical additives or mineral oils. Such chemicals pollute and leave residues in drinking water and groundwater when composted.
Hydrophil meticulously ensure their products won’t cause any unnecessary harm to the world, which is why they are cruelty free, vegan and fair trade. They believe that fair labour deserves fair wage and nothing and no one should suffer at the cost of making their products.
Their mission is to create eco-friendly hygiene products that can replace those that pollute and harm the earth which has been produced from unsustainable materials and excessive water consumption. Hydrophil has successfully created products that are far better for the environment which have been produced with sustainable water consumption and eco-friendly biodegradable materials.
This company also donates 10% of their products to a charity called Viva Con Agua who help improve drinking water supply to developing countries, where access to clean drinking water is very limited.
As you know we love products that are fair trade, sustainable, eco-friendly and with no plastic packaging. which is why I am so happy to stock Hydrophil products, their range includes vegan bamboo toothbrushes, biodegradable cotton swabs and other hygiene accessories. You can buy with confidence that you are supporting a great company that truly cares about the environment and their impact.
