Toothbrushes – Not many toothbrushes are made in the UK anymore 😦
The few ones I know of are The Handmade Classic, KB42L and Smokers (and only these ones) from Kent Brushes which are made in the UK.
and D.R. Harris bone handled toothbrushes are made in the UK.
I used to always buy Wisdom toothbrushes because they were made in the UK but sadly they are not manufacturing toothbrushes in the UK anymore. Their factory is in Haverhill, Suffolk is now closed. Wisdom have told me “All Wisdom toothbrushes are now manufactured outside of the UK”. Wisdom still emphasise their British heritage on their website, but Wisdom no longer make toothbrushes in the UK. Oral B, part of Procter & Gamble make some of their products in Southern Ireland, some of which such as their dental floss are labelled “Made in Ireland” – but here they are referring to Southern Ireland which is not part of the UK. Sensodyne, park of GSK GlaxoSmithKline, do not give country of origin on their toothbrushes but they are foreign made.
Are there any other toothbrushes made in the UK that you know of please?

Toothpaste made in the UK is still available. Colgate may still manufacture some toothpaste in the UK but often USA company Colgate-Palmolive do not bother to label country of origin on their products so we don’t really know. Arm & Hammer by Church & Dwight, an American manufacturer of household products do label country of origin on their products and some are made in the UK like their Advance White toothpaste.
