We are delighted to be able to bring to you this natural and plastic-free toothpaste, made in Sussex, UK by the small team at Georganics. This effective mineral-rich toothpaste has been made using pure, organic ingredients - minus the synthetic chemicals that are typically found in your usual off-the-shelf toothpastes (incuding many of those that claim to be natural). It's time to swap your mass produced toothpaste to natural toothpaste that has been handmade in fresh batches.
The peppermint essential oil in this English Peppermint toothpaste is highly effective at killing anaerobic bacteria, that's the type of bacteria that thrives in the mouth and can lead to gum disease. The toothpaste tastes different to conventional toothpastes; it is far less sweet and doesn't foam up, so give yourself time to get used to it. Once you are used to it, you will regular toothpaste very sweet!
If you have concern over the absence of fluoride, then please do consult your dentist to find out what is best for you.
- SLS Free (the foamy chemical found in soaps, shampoos etc), fluoride free & glycerin free - PETA cruelty-free and vegan certified, and gluten free
Directions For Use
If you're wondering how you are going to adapt to using toothpaste without a squirty tube, then worry no longer! The glass jar comes with a bamboo spatula, which you can use to apply a pea-sized amount onto your toothbrush. Brush as usual, 2 minutes is the recommendation. Ensure that no water enters the jar to keep it fresh and bacteria free (keep your spatula clean and dry too). Once the jar is opened store in a warm, dry place for up to 12 months.
Guvnor Tried & Tested
My personal experience is entirely positive, after one years use, and I have had the 'all clear' from the dentist. Intitally it tasted bitter compared to my usual toothpaste, but I very soon got used to the flavour and now find normal toothpaste sweet. It doesn't foam as much either, which really isn't an issue if you brush your teeth thoroughly.
In 2014 Alex, founder of Georganics, started making toothpaste at home, experimenting with different ingredients and making it for family and friends. Before long, he was selling his toothpaste, packed without plastic, at a farmers' market in Crystal Palace. Having received positive feedback and with growing demand, in 2015 Georganics opened its doors, bringing natural and plastic-free products to the oral care market.
Today, the growing team has moved production to West Sussex, where they operate from a beautiful converted barn. All products are made on site by a small team, working closely with local suppliers.
End Of Life
The jar and lid are 100% recyclable. The box is made from compostable craft paper and vegetable ink.
