PLASTIC-FREE TOOTHPASTE TABLETS
60 chewable fluoride toothpaste tablets in a cardboard box with no water and zero plastic, these are perfect for hand luggage and travel.
These toothpaste tablets from Non-Plastic Beach still contain fluoride (recommended by dentists to protect teeth), unlike many plastic-free toothpaste alternatives. It is toothpaste in a dry tablet form, which means they can be packaged without plastic and makes them 100% hand luggage friendly.
The box is compostable or recyclable cardboard with no plastic windows or coatings. We recommend acquiring a travel tin to keep them in or repurposing a small jar to keep them secure when travelling.
Directions for use: Place one tablet in the front of your mouth, chew it until there are no bits and then brush with a wetted brush as normal. Spit it out and rinse as normal, then you are good to go! Totally kissable with no damage to the planet, go you!
Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Sodium Bicarbonate, Silica, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Magnesium Stearate, Aroma (Natural Mint Flavour), Menthol, Xanthan-Gum, Stevioside, Citric Acid, Sodium Fluoride, Eugenol. Contains Sodium Fluoride (1450 ppm)
The tablets are made in Berlin, Germany, which means they are made to EU standards and are overflowing with ethical manufacturing and quality certification, which is what we wanted for toothpaste, which is to protect your precious dental health!
A bit of eco FYI for you… Toothpaste tubes are a big plastic offender as they are often made of more than one layer and type of plastic, so they are a real pain to deal with from a waste perspective. These tubes are total landfill lovers so it is likely that every toothpaste tube you have ever gotten through is still out there hanging out in a landfill, along with your toothbrushes (that didn’t somehow make it into the sea, yuk)
On the subject of fluoride, here is what our suppliers had to say:
“The Fluoride Question In recent years, some people have decided that they don’t want fluoride in their toothpaste, having read scare stories about it being toxic! Like many things that are good for you (water, vitamin A to name just two), if you have them in incredibly high doses then you’re going to get yourself in trouble. (try drinking 10 litres of water on a normal day and you’ll soon see for yourself!) But unless you’re going to start devouring entire squeezy tubes of toothpaste as a daily snack, using toothpaste the way it was meant to be will only serve to give you glistening pearly whites. Fluoride is undoubtedly fantastic for your teeth and found in toothpaste, mouthwash and added to some drinking water. Even if you use all three, you will not get a harmful dose, but you might ensure you earn your sticker next time you visit the dentist.
Further reading on fluoride can be found below if you don’t believe the people who are selling something with it in… From a personal point of view, we use fluoride products and always have. We have also consulted with friends who are variously in the medical profession and university lecturers in biochemistry and they universally use fluoride products for themselves and their children. That is good enough for us.
