better care
better care

In Taiwan, common ear-pick usually made from metal or bamboo.

The shape of these ear-pick is too thin that bad for rotating by fingers,
And it's also with the potentially dangerous factors.
When accident happened, it would hurt the ear drum directly.

The ear drum (tympanum) are an important but brittle organ for hearing.
The safe depth of ear picking is 1.5 centimeter from the beginning of ear hole.

Solving problems that above by designing new form to avoid ear drum hurting.

Made from silicon. When finished, it could be washed under water.

Thicker handle is good for rotate.
