Do you know what’s lurking in your toothpaste? Until recently, I hadn’t really given much thought to the chemical ingredients in my favorite toothpaste (Sensodyne, in case you’re curious). I was perusing an all-natural e-commerce website when I came across Tooth Soap. Yep, soap for your teeth. Sounds rather hippy-dippy, doesn’t it? It totally is, but a lot of people swear by it. So, I figured I’d give it a whirl to see what all the fuss is about.
- Free of added glycerin, sweeteners, silicates, fluoride, dyes, and other potentially harmful ingredients.
- Organic and all-natural.
- Deep cleans teeth.
- Nourishes gums.
- Made in the USA.
- Tastes like soap. …yeah, I know it’s called Tooth Soap but I was expecting it to taste more peppermint-y.
- Pricier than drugstore toothpaste. Cost: $23 for 2 oz. However, you only need a couple drops per brush session, so I’m assuming the bottle might last awhile.
Overall, I’m into the idea of Tooth Soap. I might add a couple drops of my own peppermint oil to it, because the flavor really is lacking. When I finish it, I’m thinking of using the glass bottle to store my own homemade version of tooth soap.
