The Kindbrush is a newly launched brand based in Cape Town which offers a range of environmentally friendly oral care products purposefully designed to contribute towards a plastic-free planet.

The Kindbrush range is sustainable, stylishly designed and was created by a dental hygienist. The toothbrush handle is made of ethically sourced bamboo and the floss is biodegradable, in refillable glass versus a plastic dispenser. The Lip balm is 100% natural, vegan-friendly and the packaging is waste-free.

Their philosophy is all about being kind and mindful about one’s own wellbeing, that of others and of the planet. Their business approach is rooted in the belief that bite-sized changes matter mightily.

Chrismarié Barnardt


The Kindbrush was created by Chrismarié Barnardt, a Registered Dental Hygienist and nature lover who has been deeply concerned about the impact of traditional oral care products globally and the growing plastic pollution crisis. 

“Think of it this way: plastic toothbrushes and floss dispensers can take more than 400 years to decompose. This means that the very first plastic toothbrush and floss dispenser ever produced, and every single one thereafter, still exist today. In 2020, during the height of the COVID19 crisis and after 14 years of working at various dental practices in and around Cape Town, South Africa, I felt that the time was right to create a competitive, environmentally friendly alternative to plastic oral care. Most people are born dentally healthy; the challenge is to keep it that way. This is why I wholeheartedly believe in preventive oral care achieved by good oral hygiene habits. I trust that the design, look and feel of this beautiful, natural, and sustainable range will inspire and motivate you to look forward to your daily oral care routine. And while you’re at it, why not simply use a product that’s also much kinder to our planet? If you cannot change everything, change one thing.


The Kindbrush happily supports Develop Dental, a registered NGO working to increase access to quality dental care and oral hygiene education among children in under-resourced communities in and around Cape Town, South Africa.
