Happy National Dental Hygiene Month!

In RADIUS on October 1, 2015 at 5:42 pm

If, like most people, you perform your oral care regimen on autopilot, then National Dental Hygiene Month is the perfect opportunity to stop, examine and maybe even improve your daily routine.

The American Dental HygienistsAssociation (ADHA) defines four core steps for complete protection against tooth decay and gum disease — AKA The Daily Four:

1. Brush Twice a Day, Every Day

Brushing teeth and gums is the most important method for reducing plaque and preventing cavities, gingivitis and other plaque-related diseases.

Dental experts know that when it comes to brush bristles, softer equals better. RADIUS® toothbrushes boast finer, longer, softer bristles that reach every nook and cranny of your mouth while massaging the gums, rather than aggravating them like harder brushes. Bonus: using a RADIUS  toothbrush feels so good you’ll want to brush for more than the recommended two minutes.

2. Make Flossing a Daily Habit

“Interdental” cleaning of those tricky-to-reach spots between teeth is important for ensuring there aren’t any hidden layers of plaque or pieces of food — ticking time bombs that can spell problems down the road.

RADIUS® makes two types of floss: A glossy biodegradable silk, and a pliable vegan-friendly nylon. The latter is coated with naturally sourced, tree-based xylitol (which prevents bacteria and reduces acidity while adding a hint of sweetness), and it comes in two delicious flavors, each with bonus oral health-boosting properties — antibacterial cranberry and antiseptic mint tea tree.

3. Rinse With an Anti-Microbial Mouth Wash

Brushing and flossing alone can only cover so much ground, but following those steps with a quick swill of anti-microbial mouth rinse will eliminate germs and plaque throughout the whole mouth, for complete protection.

Look for an antiseptic mouthwash which displays the ADA Seal of Acceptance on its packaging, or talk to your dentist for a recommendation.

4. Chew Sugar-Free Gum Between Meals

Every time you eat or drink, the bacteria in plaque begin to produce acid, which can contribute to demineralization and even decay.

While it’s certainly not convenient to brush your teeth after every meal or snack, chewing a piece of sugar-free gum will tide you over until bedtime. It stimulates the salivary glands — washing away stubborn food particles and neutralizing acid to help keep your teeth strong and cavity-free.

RADIUS® loves Glee Gum — a naturally delicious chewing gum made with sustainably harvested rainforest chicle and sweetened with Xylitol, just like our cranberry and mint tea tree flosses.

Shop Natural Biodegradable Silk Floss®

Flossing is an integral part of any thorough oral care regimen, but not all flosses are created equal. Our Natural Biodegradable Silk Floss® takes us back to a time before the nylon of today’s floss took over — when floss was made of pure, inviting, luxurious silk. Free from the toxins found in similar products, RADIUS®’ silk floss glides easily between teeth for a meticulously clean finish.

Check out our silk floss sachets, perfect for on-the-go flossing. Or, shop our vegan floss and vegan floss sachets.

Shop The Doc™

The Doc is so much more than a toothbrush holder. Its a game-changer in the bathroom and beyond. The suction base fixes easily to any smooth surface, securely clasping your RADIUS toothbrushes.

No, Seriously…We’re Happy Just to be Nominated

Martha-Stewart-badge2014_style_finalist

Have you ever watched the Oscars, Grammys, or any other award show and thought, “Yea right, I’m sure they’re just happy to be nominated. I don’t believe that for a second?” Well, we’re hear to tell you that being happy just to be nominated can actually happen.

RADIUS was nominated for the Martha Stewart American Made Award (which was super awesome in and of itself) and then imagine our excitement when we come to find out that out of hundreds of entries in our Style category we were a chosen finalist!

We work really hard to make our company and the products that we produce the best that they can be and to have that recognized in such a big way was a huge honor.

The winners were chosen on Friday October 17th and, sadly, RADIUS did not win. Are we a little disappointed? Of course, but we knew the competition was steep and all the companies who did win were well-deserving and we couldn’t be more excited for them. As cliché as it sounds, we were really  honored to be included in such an exclusive group of companies and we congratulate each and every one of them.

Now, with only a few more months left in 2014, we’re looking forward to 2015 and all the the things that it can bring. If we’re nominated again next year hopefully we’ll win, but if not, make no mistake… we’ll still be happy just to be nominated.

To each and every person who voted for us, we thank you so much for your support! We’ll see you again next year.

Glee Gum Makes RADIUS Positively Gleeful!

In RADIUS, RADIUS Reviews It! on June 23, 2014 at 3:50 pm

It’s no surprise that here at RADIUS we’re all about teeth. Our teeth and overall oral health are pretty important to us. Which is why when we’re sitting in our beautiful HQ in Kuztown, PA dreaming up more ways to bring environmentally friendly oral care to the masses, we chew Glee Gum. We’ve always been big fans of Glee Gum, not only because they have an amazing product that is all natural and tastes pretty amazing, but also because we prefer to support like-minded companies. RADIUS and Glee Gum are both dedicated to providing quality products that are environmentally and socially responsible. So when the opportunity was presented for us to partner with Glee Gum and host a Facebook contest where one lucky participant will win a one year supply of RADIUS Floss Sachets & Sugar-Free Glee Gum, we jumped at the chance.

 The folks at Glee Gum were also nice enough to send everyone at RADIUS an assortment of their Sugar-Free Gum and we thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to let everyone know WHY we love Glee!

Our Inside Sales Team couldn’t wait to try the New Wild Watermelon flavor that Glee Gum now offers.

“I love all of the flavors, but my absolute favorite is the Wild Watermelon!” exclaims Chrissy, our Inside Sales Manager.

“My two favorites were the Mint and the Watermelon, but if I had to choose, I would have to say Wild Watermelon is my favorite.” agrees Jen, an Inside Sales Rep. “I also  love the mini Glee Gum boxes! They’re perfect for putting in your purse!”

“I really like how Glee Gum is aspartame, saccharin, cyclamate free.” Donna, an Inside Sales Rep explains. “I brought a few packs of Glee Gum home to my family and my children went crazy! They tried each flavor, loved them all, and have been chewing Glee Gum ever since!”

I honestly can’t pick one flavor I like the best because I like them all, but I really enjoyed the Lemon Lime. I also really appreciate the fact that Glee Gum is made without any harmful additives and is made in the USA.”

Our Shipping & Production Assistant is a huge fan of the Wild Watermelon, but it’s the packaging that had her family really excited. “I took some Glee Gum home for my family to try and my mom fell in love with the packaging. She loves Glee Guy! Once they got over how awesome the packaging was, they decided they really like the Mint the best!”

Our entire Production Team (total of 15) were super excited to try out Glee Gum and kept a stash in the RADIUS break room to chew when not on the floor assembling all of our toothbrushes. Everyone had their favorite flavor, but, after a quick poll, the most popular was the Wild Watermelon!

“It’s a box of Glee!” our Social Marketing & PR person Amanda announced when the shipment of Glee Gum arrived at RADIUS. “I’m a huge fan of Glee Gum and was a Mint user for quite some time, but after trying the new Wild Watermelon flavor I think I’ve found a new favorite! I’ve always really appreciated that this gum is non-GMO, vegetarian, and does not contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame, but I also love how Glee Gum is environmentally responsible. They use chicle in their gum base which helps support the rainforest and I absolutely love their Tree to Glee program where Glee will plant a tree in Central America for every documented box of gum that is purchased. We try to do as much as we can as a company to make our products and manufacturing process environmentally friendly, so it’s really great to partner with a company that has the same goals.”

Saskia our fearless leader and CEO couldn’t decide which flavor she liked best. “I love the flavors! They’re so good that I wish the flavor would last forever!” Since Saskia is heavily involved in the RADIUS product design process she really appreciates companies that go the extra mile to make quality, socially, and environmentally responsible products. “Glee Gum and RADIUS have quite a few things in common. Our Vegan Mint and Cranberry Flosses contain gum-benefiting, USA-Sourced Xylitol just like their Sugar-Free Gum. It also really impresses me that Glee Gum is the first Fair Trade gum in the world and that they manufacture in the USA. We manufacture our products in the US and it’s wonderful to see other companies succeed that have the ambition.”

Review in Review: 

Simply put, RADIUS loves Glee Gum! But, by an overwhelming majority, our favorite flavor is Wild Watermelon!
