A guide to keeping your teeth clean with eco, natural dental care products
A guide to keeping your teeth and gums clean whilst ensuring that you use environmentally friendly, eco friendly, plastic free and zero waste products.
When it comes to natural dental care, what sorts of products can you find and how do they better from their commercial counterparts?
An eco friendly toothbrush is an essential when it comes to oral hygiene. The average person should go through around 280 toothbrushes in a lifetime which results in a whole lot of plastic being used and then discarded into landfill. Thankfully there are other eco friendly, natural solutions such as sustainable, recyclable, biodegradable or compostable wooden or bamboo handled eco toothbrushes with plastic-free, natural fibres- these do just as much of a good job, but without the negative environmental impact.
Eco Dental Floss
Eco dental floss is an essential part of any natural dental care routine and should be done once a day, before you go to bed. Flossing regularly with eco dental floss can reduce plaque by up to 80% and can help with issues such as gingivitis, bad breath, decay. Instead of using floss from the chemist or supermarket, we recommend using eco dental floss that is made of natural fibres, coated with natural ingredients, and packaged in a plastic free, eco friendly container. Conventional floss can be dangerous for your health, as well as pose a significant risk to wildlife once it has been discarded. That’s why it is best to go for an eco dental floss that is natural, organic, vegan and cruelty free.
Vegan toothpaste is perhaps one of the most important products in your bathroom cabinet and should be used at least twice a day after you have had you breakfast and dinner. Designed to be brushed onto your teeth to clean, brighten and maintain the health of your teeth, natural, vegan toothpaste comes in a variety of flavours and formats. We can offer natural, vegan toothpastes in spearmint, peppermint, orange, and tea tree, or tablets in the same flavours. We also have vegan toothpaste in flouride-free, plastic-free toothpaste tablets and zero waste, natural tooth powder with activated charcoal- it is just up to you to choose which one you want to try first, they are all great and made with eco, natural, organic, vegan, cruelty free and chemical free ingredients.
Once you have brushed and flossed, you should be sure to finish your routine with a splash of natural mouthwash. Swill it around and spit it out to enjoy a fresh feeling, reduced and calmed gums, prevent tartar build up, lower the risk of gingivitis and plaque, and kill germs. You can use natural mouthwash in the morning and evening, and even after meals during the day to keep your mouth clean, fresh and healthy. We stock a range of natural mouthwash including natural mouthwash tablets and natural oil pulling mouthwash that are great for the job, whilst being ever-so eco friendly. They are also all plastic-free and made with natural, organic, vegan, cruelty free and chemical free ingredients.
