ABOUT THE DESIGN OF THE BRUSH
Flooxa toothbrush’s unique product design was created especially to act as the perfect canvas to showcase student artwork. After careful research, we found that clean teeth can be achieved with the simplest of toothbrush designs.
ABOUT THE HANDLE
The handle is made of 100% biodegradable bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. The bamboo is heat-treated for a water-resistant, quality finish and long life.
THE BRUSH BRISTLES
The colorful bristles are made from soft BPA-free nylon. Currently, there is no viable plant-based biodegradable material that matches the cleaning effectiveness of nylon.
THE RECYCLABLE PACKAGING
At Flooxa, a sustainable, environmentally-friendly product is a goal. The toothbrush wrapper and shipping packaging is made from 100% compostable cardboard and paper. Please feel free to recycle or compost.

FEATURED STUDENT ARTIST
KIMBERLY ORTEGA’S DESIGN
Artwork inspired by the Art Deco Movement
One of the proper ways to brush our teeth is by gently brushing them in a circular motion or small circular movements. Therefore, the given title and use of circles in my toothbrush design. Apart from using a basic geometric shape, I also worked with some of the other elements in graphic design, such as: repetition, textures and patterns, size and rhythm.
I hold a BFA in Design and Digital Art with a minor in Industrial Design and some additional academic preparation in Filmmaking, Fashion Design and Art, from the Escuela de Artes Plásticas y Diseño de Puerto Rico, located in Old San Juan, P.R.
By having a multidisciplinary preparation, I have developed a versatile problem-solving mindset which focuses on creating functional and visually pleasing design solutions that always take into consideration the client/user’s needs. Also, I’m interested in Visual Culture, Psychology, Interaction Design, Creative Writing and the importance of signification in the creation of art and design works.
My interests are multifarious. I find inspiration in music, literature, film, nature, architecture, fashion, photography, popular culture, and generally, in every type of art and design. Furthermore, I would describe myself as a tropical woman with an expressive soul, a floral mind, an iridescent aura and a heart-shaped sight, passionate about all things creative.
Take a look at Flooxa Toothbrush’s story
Combining the family traditions of art and dentistry, Flooxa was founded by Creative Director and Adjunct Professor Celso Portela in 2014. Flooxa toothbrushes add a creative flourish to the frequent task of brushing your teeth, promoting good oral hygiene while introducing a passion for art and design to your daily routine.
From Celso Portela, creator of Flooxa toothbrushes:
“I’m extremely excited to tell you about Flooxa toothbrushes. This brush is the first and only toothbrush that helps art students fund their creative projects, promotes art institutions, and is crafted from environmentally responsible bamboo. Flooxa flourished in my imagination as a direct response to my passion for art and design. Also, to continue the family tradition in the field of dentistry, and from my desire as a college professor to support education, which I believe is the solution to many social problems.”
