I really didn’t need to try David’s Toothpaste. I was happy with my baking soda and peppermint oil mix. My husband chooses Tom’s of Maine, but had run out and I suggested David’s. Mostly, I was curious. I hadn’t used toothpaste in about a year and also, I enjoy supporting companies that are making better options available.
Here’s how it shipped. I was so pleased there was very little extra packaging and ZERO plastic. Seriously, so tired of companies thinking their sundries are breakable and therefore including so much extra packaging. As you can see, I ordered the 3 pack to save $3, but also so I would save on having to order again and I knew I would use it up, even if I go back to baking soda and peppermint oil when this is through.
As most people mention, the packaging itself is beautiful enough to justify taking up counter space. The color is this beautiful minty-gray that is neither feminine nor masculine, but just exists.
The paste is rather soft, which I don’t mind at all. It is extremely peppermint flavored and makes your mouth feel extra fresh. I don’t think it works any better than baking soda, but sometimes I want to feel more regular and use a paste. I rather enjoy the key situation where you use it to roll the tube. My suggestion is to not use it until necessary as I had a lot of extra product trying to escape when I was first using the paste.
The price is at the level where only if you truly care about what you are putting into your body and what the packaging is made from will you purchase said product. I’m honestly excited to use it for the time being, and am glad I can recycle the packaging locally when it’s depleted.
Have you tried DAVID’S? Do you have a preference on sustainable tooth care?
Peace and love,
