Women Talking speak to Roz and Ali about their business journey so far:
What inspired you to start the company?
“Roz and I are a mother and daughter team and started the brand out of a personal need having not found a truly effective toothbrush cover that was plastic-free and reduced the germ build-up in between brushing.
“We started on our brand journey back in 2018 at the most difficult time of our lives.
“Roz was going through a marriage break up after 30 years and was sinking in her divorce process and I had just been diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer at just 33 years old I was petrified of what the future had in store.
“We were both a bit beaten up by life and generally sad.
“I remember just 9 or so months before Roz and I had spoken about a dream we’d had. To start our own business and create the best toothbrush cover the world had ever seen.
“So, on a warm evening with a glass of wine sitting in Roz’s Garden talking about what we were both going to do with our lives. The ‘eco cover’ re-emerged and we started to talk about what the ideal cover would look like, do and how to solve all the pain points that people currently had to deal with when using a plastic one.
“We quickly realised that what is now Toothbuckle was just the positive focus we needed. At that moment we knew we were committed to bringing the Toothbuckle cover to the world and creating an exceptional cover that was highly sustainable, stopped that germ-build up and was that new way of looking at oral hygiene.”
