Plastic Free Dental Care

🦷 Years ago, few of us (me included! 🙋‍♀️) were thinking about the plastic🧴in our dental products; it just wasn’t on the radar ✈️ Luckily, there are dozens and dozens of alternatives available these days 🐼 from bamboo toothbrushes🚰 to tooth tabs 💊 to toothpaste in glass containers 🧪 to bamboo interdental brushes 🦷 to silk floss 🧶

I was curious to see how demand for eco dental products has changed and was shocked - swipe ⏩ to see global searches for “bamboo toothbrush” in pic 1 and “plastic free toothpaste” in pic 2. Even @colgate now sell a bamboo toothbrush! This once niche product has gone mainstream 👫👫👫

At RESTOCK, we currently sell @simplybamboo_za toothbrushes for adults 🧑 and kids 🧒, as well as their beautiful bamboo toothbrush cases - such a lovely gift 🎁 for avid travellers 🌍
We also have @southern_soul_sa tooth powder (and possibly adding tooth tabs as well) as well as toothpaste and tooth powder by @theapothecary_za.

I have a soft spot for @theapothecary_za toothpaste and this is why - earlier this year, while trying to go plastic free in the UK 🇬🇧 I ordered a few products online and frankly they were terrible 😖 This included some tooth tabs I found and ordered - they were just dry and tasteless 😑I lost faith in plastic free toothpaste for a while but when I tried @theapothecary_za ‘s rosemary & peppermint 🌱 toothpaste my faith was not only restored - it was genuinely the nicest toothpaste I’ve ever had. The baking soda also gently removes stains from your teeth - I’ve been asked since switching whether I’ve had my teeth whitened 😁 (I was considering it after having braces this year but don’t think I need to now!) 🥳
I just started their Grapefruit, Tea Tree & Eucalyptus 🍈 flavour and possibly like it even more...
So if you’re wary about plastic free toothpaste I’d really recommend just giving it a go.
Also, @theapothecary_za take back glass jars to sterilise & reuse so you can rest easy knowing you’re part of the circular toothconomy 😶
