Beauty is more than the latest eye shadow palette or cult status skin care serum. Having healthy and beautiful teeth can kick up your beauty factor into the stratosphere. And I’m not talking about super straight, gleaming super white Hollywood teeth, either. I’m talking about when your teeth are healthy and fit your personality!
If you’re in the frame of mind to clean up your beauty routine, one of the easiest products to replace is your toothpaste. Toothpastes that offer cleaner ingredients can do wonders for your teeth. And picking healthier options is not hard or limited anymore. With people looking for clean beauty products, the sky’s the limit to what you can find.
Here are some of the following toothpastes that I have used personally.
I got this toothpaste in a goodie bag I got for attending the Project Beauty Expo last summer. It was a large full-sized tube that came with a “key” to help you roll the tube and to keep the tube neat and clean while controlling the amount of product you want to dispense. Let me just say that this toothpaste lasted me for a long time! I brush at least two to three times a day and it took me a long time to run out. So far so good, right? The texture was an opaque white mint flavored concoction that left your mouth feeling extremely clean. It’s a flouride-free and sulfate-free and it does keep your teeth white and healthy looking.
Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile soaps were probably my first foray into clean beauty. I’ve used their soaps for years and they are the best soaps ever! They leave you squeaky clean and they aren’t overly scented with loads of perfume like those mass produced bar soaps that leaves your skin horribly dry. They are a trusted brand, in my opinion, so I was surprised to see that they’ve expanded their brand to include toothpaste. Since the Peppermint Castile soap is my favorite (with Alond being a close second), I decided to try the Peppermint All-One Toothpaste. Just like the soaps, the toothpaste tube includes all of the wacky esoteric writings that Dr. Bronner is know for. They are a fun read, to say the least. Anyway, the toothpaste is not as sweet tasting as some of the others I’ve tried and the peppermint is not overpowering. The texture was not as thick or “toothpasty” as I’d like to be, for lack of a better word. I can’t really say if I liked it or not. It was just okay. My teeth didn’t look any different, but I did manage to finish the tube. Not sure if it’s something I’d repurchase again. But the soaps will always have a spot in my shower.
I got a hold of the new Jason Simply Coconut Strengthening Toothpaste just on a whim when I visited my local Whole Foods and realized when standing in line that I needed toothpaste. I grabbed this toothpaste because it was coconut mint flavored and I love anything coconut. No brainer. When I cracked the seal on it to brush my teeth that night before going to bed, I got a bit of a shock. I was shocked because the texture was total, I mean, TOTALLY different from any toothpaste I’ve ever used before. It had a weird gloopy, creamy jelly-like consistency that was a little off-putting. Initially. It didn’t taste like your average toothpaste because the coconut is very prominent. You get very little mint and we all know that any toothpaste that contains any mint or peppermint or wintermint flavoring, there’s a chance of a burn factor. Not so much with Jason. After I got over the texture, it’s not a bad toothpaste. It doesn’t leave your teeth or my mouth gritty and it does a good job of cleaning. It is 99% floride-free and contains Coconut Oil, Calcium, Magnesium and Peppermint Oil. It would make a wonderful toothpaste for anyone into oil pulling. It’s a toothpaste I would consider purchasing again when I run out.
