Science behind uv sanitization of toothbrushes – what does PubMed say about it?
There are multiple papers published around the topic of toothbrush sanitization. Some of them include UV as a metod of choice while other focus only on using chemical agents. There is one study (1) claiming that UV rays are more effective than 0.2% chlorhexidine (CHX) gluconate solution. There are also another studies that conclude UV light is an effective method of sanitising toothbrushes, claiming that other companies products provided between 83% and 100% decrease in total CFU (bacterial counts).

The bottom line:
We like it.
