If you’re looking for a more sustainable alternative to tubed toothpaste, might we suggest trying toothpaste tablets? Toothpaste tablets are powdered toothpaste that’s condensed into tablets. They still offer a similar kind of clean to traditional toothpaste, only are more environmentally friendly and travel friendly.
Brushing with them is also pretty straightforward. You simply pop one into your mouth, chew it, and start brushing. One tablet is usually enough for a full two-minute clean. However, some people might feel they get a better clean from two tablets. You can also get options without fluoride if that’s your preference too. Keen to try some other eco-friendly oral care? Why not invest in a tongue scraper or a water flosser while you’re at it.
Ahead, we’re rounded up some of the top-rated toothpaste tablets worth making the swap for.
