An oral care implement is provided. The implement comprises a head having a first surface and a group of non-parallel tooth cleaning elements extending from the first surface of the head. The tooth cleaning elements together define therebetween a conically-shaped cavity. Moreover, the tooth cleaning elements together define a wall around the cavity, the wall having a proximal end adjacent the first surface of the head and a distal end distal from the first surface of the head, the distal end of the wall being defined by distal ends of a plurality of the tooth cleaning elements. A thickness of the wall measured from an interior side of the wall facing the cavity to an opposite exterior side of the wall is less at the distal end of the wall than at the proximal end of the wall. Furthermore, the head has a hole therein, and wherein the group of non-parallel tooth cleaning elements extends from within the hole.


Disclosed is a refill cartridge (10), comprising: a container (12) defining a chamber containing a flowable substance and having a rim defining an opening through which the flowable substance is dispensable; a seal (14) attached to the container (12) and closing the opening; and at least one projection (17A, 17B) for holding by a user extending from the rim. Also disclosed is a system, comprising the refill cartridge (10) and a pump dispenser (100), the pump dispenser (100) comprising: a body (110) defining a hollow interior (113) and having a rim defining an opening (114) through which at least a portion of the refill cartridge (10) is receivable into the hollow interior (113), a lid (120), and a pump for pumping the flowable substance from the chamber when the portion of the refill cartridge (10) is in the hollow interior (113) and the lid (120) closes the opening (113), wherein the rim of the body (110) has at least one notch (117A, 117B) therein for receiving the at least one projection (17A, 17B).
