Electric toothbrushes have become increasingly popular in the last few decades. Manufacturers have ventured into giving stores and brands more options to choose from. One of these options is the Sonicare toothbrush. These toothbrushes are part of the electric toothbrush category and use sonic technology.
Businesses and oral health care facilities have more choices when they add the Sonicare toothbrush to their lists. Many have also discovered its powerful cleaning action. Thus, businesses realized that they could provide their customers with more choices. This is true for the Philips Sonicare brand.
Even though there are many other brands around the world, the Philips Sonicare brand is deemed by many as the number one sonic toothbrush worldwide. Even so, they do have some competition that uses sonic technology too.
Sonicare toothbrushes offer up to 62.000 brush head revolutions per minute. This creates microbubbles that aid in cleaning in-between teeth. As with most electric toothbrushes, clinical tests have shown that all Sonicare toothbrushes clean better than manual brushes. At the same time, it is kinder and gentler on gums and teeth.
What Are Sonic Toothbrushes?
Before we answer the question, “Where are Sonicare toothbrushes made?,” we can give a quick overview of what sonic toothbrushes are and how they work. All sonic toothbrushes use innovative technology to provide more powerful cleaning than most other electric toothbrushes. The same applies to Philips Sonicare.
These types of brushes provide brush heads that vibrate and move at higher speeds as they move from side to side. It is vastly different from the round, rotating electric brushes. The vibrations are so fast that they often result in an audible hum.
The 50,000 movements per minute of the Sonicare toothbrushes are what places them in the sonic category. Look out for the ones that also offer UV cleaning for a healthier tool in your customers’ hands.
A UV-clean sonic electric toothbrush often comes with up to three brush modes, such as pulse, soft, and normal. Sonicare, too, has several modes from which to choose
As an example, the sonic technology of Philips Sonicare is gentle but effective. It has strong enough pulses to remove plaque and improve gum health. It does this by pulsing or vibrating fluid in between the teeth and along the gum line.
The question is then, “Who is in charge of making such toothbrushes?” We can therefore also ask the question, “Where are Sonicare toothbrushes made?”
Where are Sonicare Toothbrushes Made?
As noted already, Sonicare is a brand sold by the Philips Company. Koninklijke Philips, simply known as Philips, is part of the Dutch health and technology industry. They are therefore on board with manufacturing electric toothbrushes as well. This includes their Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush.
For a number of decades, most products distributed around the world, including oral healthcare products, were manufactured in China. China has, in recent years, been the go-to manufacturing platform for many varied products around the world. Hence, it is no surprise that Philips, too, has given the Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush to the Chinese manufacturing market for manufacturing.
It is a well-known fact that China has the resources and capabilities to manufacture many different types of electronic products. These products include sonic electric toothbrushes. The reason why many companies, such as Philips, opted to do so is because the majority of manufacturers in China are all FDA and CE-approved. The plants or factories are also ISO-certified.
Having said that, though, some of the Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes are also made in Europe. Philips does not specify which ones are made where. One of the ways to find out exactly where these toothbrushes are made is to look at what it says on the packaging.
Manufacturers are required by law to indicate where their product was manufactured. If it was only packaged in China, it should therefore state so on the package. If it was both made and packaged in China, it should say that. As far as we can tell, the Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush is manufactured in China.
How are Sonicare Electric Toothbrushes Made?
The Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush is made in the same way as any other electric toothbrush. It needs to have a hollow, waterproof capsule in which the electronic components are contained. The capsule is typically manufactured in plastic and has an ergonomic design to accommodate its bulkiness.
Most manufacturers will allow their clients the option of customization. This is so that businesses can provide their customers with the best options. Although, in the case of the Sonicare electric toothbrush, one can assume that the Philips Company will provide the customization and specifications. This makes it easier for businesses to simply order their stock.
Once the electronic components have been manufactured and assembled, these are placed into the body (the plastic, waterproof capsule). The electronic components consist of the motor, gearing mechanism, and rechargeable battery.
The last two components that are manufactured and added are the brush head and the cap at the bottom. The bottom cap contains the USB that is connected to the battery. It also serves to further seal and hold the container together.
The final step in the manufacturing process is to ensure that each Sonicare electric toothbrush operates flawlessly. Once this is done, the finished product is packaged in a properly labeled package. When businesses order these electric brushes, they can be assured that their customers will receive what they bargained for.
