Brushing your teeth without toothpaste is like cooking without oil, bathing without soap and shampooing without shampoo. It seems like an extremely odd idea, almost borderline unnatural; blame it on habit or just mental conditioning but imagining your toothbrush without paste seems close to impossible. However this impossibility has been achieved and termed possible with Misoka toothbrush. Created in collaboration with Osaka technology company Yumeshokumin, Misoka features bristles coated in nano-sized mineral ions that completely eliminate the need for a toothpaste. In the modern world where toothbrushes like Misoka exist, these ions work by passing from the bristles to the teeth during brushing, removing stains and forming a protective coating on the enamel.
The routine remains the same except that there is no paste and you dip Misoka into a glass of water, which loosens the ions and starts cleaning your mouth and teeth but only for a month after which it has to be replaced with a new one. Misoka will be presented in Milan next week at Water Fountain.
