We’ve reviewed a few different eco-friendly toothpastes here at Life Goggles, the Optima Aloe Dent one, Aloe Dent Whitening and Trader Joe’s All Natural Peppermint toothpaste. And the one thing they have in common is they don’t taste like normal toothpaste – not as minty or ‘normal’ like you’re used to. So I didn’t expect this JASON Nutrismile Toothpaste to be any different.
And it wasn’t. But at least it doesn’t even claim to be minty, it has something called Ester-C instead which is there to reinforce tooth enamel and defend against tooth decay. It also has three natural whiteners to polish and whiten teeth, natural anti-bacterial perilla seed extract which helps block the formation of sugar acids and micro-organisms that form tartar on teeth.
Or so it says anyway. As with the other toothpastes we’ve reviewed it doesn’t contain fluoride which while good for your teeth, isn’t great for the environment.
So despite the weird taste, I’ve been using it for a few weeks and not only have grown to put up with in, I’ve grown to like it and I like the toothpaste itself. It foams up nicely like ‘normal’ toothpastes, in fact it’s quite a thick foam so you don’t have to use a great deal of it to clean your teeth. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly toothpaste you can’t go far wrong with this one.
JASON Nutrismile Toothpaste costs £4.84 from Big Green Smile.
