We’ve shaken up the toothpaste game. Well, given it a wobble at least. That’s right, toothpaste jelly! Vegan, effective and super delicious. Never mind what Destiny’s Child said… we totally think you’re ready for this jelly.
Toothpaste jelly gives all the clean feeling of your regular toothpaste, but with a whole host of additional benefits. Entirely recyclable packaging? Tick! Fresh and effective ingredients? Of course! A whole host of delicious flavours to keep you beaming with every brush? We’ve got you covered!
Each vegan toothpaste has a base of sorbitol and xylitol, two ingredients that are not only sweet, but also prohibit the growth of acid-producing bacteria present in the mouth. It’s seaweed that gives each colourful pot that wonderful jelly texture, making each one soft and soothing in the mouth and on gums.
Thinking back on kids birthday parties, it might sound counterintuitive to brush with a jelly, but you might be surprised at how similar this feels to the toothpaste you’re used to squeezing from a tube. Better yet, you can mix and match flavours, scooping up however much you want from any pot and creating your own beautiful yet tasty brush art.
There’s no need to worry about any nasties. The product is made so that the base is a bacteria buster, meaning you can dip your brush and use as many times as you please, safe in the knowledge that your smile is safe as well as environmentally sound.
Enough on the base. You want to know about what each of these pots of joy are all about, right?
