The name is constructed from two words, Care and Consumables; Caresumables.
Founded by an industrial designer and psychologist together with a chemical engineer and coach in 2012. Both have experience from development and management within the business of consumables.
After several years as entrepreneurs abroad they decided to move back to their country of origin. This was a golden opportunity to start a new business and finally develop the idea that had been at the back of their minds for several years. The creation of a new company in the health sector and to start with the design and production of an under the tongue saliva absorption consumable product. They knew from dentists that there was a demand on the market for such a product.
Caresumables aims at developing Dental and Medical Consumable products with a patient perspective.
DryDent, the under the tongue saliva absorbent was the first in a series of useful consumable products. The second product was Comfortip. Both products were bought by DirectaDentalgroup in 2016 and are sold under the names DryDent Sublingual and DryDent Parotid.
In April 2017 a new product developed by Caresumables was launched. DryMasq, a consumable face protection for dental patients.
