Lactona, the only toothbrush manufacturer in the Netherlands.
Lactona as a brand name was first used for a toothpaste developed by a dentist in the USA in 1931.
In 1954 Lactona started with the production of the M39 toothbrush . This toothbrush with a rubber tip was the first multi tufted toothbrush and gave Lactona its brand identification.
