1: Zero Waste Beauty Australia Peppermint Toothpaste
We love this one, because not only does it come in a refillable, recyclable glass jar, it's also
made from natural ingredients
Free of triclosan, SLS, fluoride, propylene glycol, DEA, micro beads and artificial sweeteners.
The version we've tried is this Peppermint version, which is refreshing. It also comes in a Lemon & Eucalyptus version too.
packaging: metal tube
2: Aesop Toothpaste
Harking back to the old metal tubes of yesteryear, Aesop's (relatively) new toothpaste is packed in a recyclable metal tube. With the characteristic gorgeous herbal scents of the botanically-focussed brand, this toothpaste has a wonderful mouth feel. It's
made from natural ingredients, predominantly calcium carbonate
key ingredients include sea buckthorn, cardamon, wasabia japonica
Packaging: metal tube
3: Davids Premium Natural Toothpaste
Made in the USA, this aesthetically pleasing package gets ticks in the graphic design department, as well as the sustainable packaging department. The toothpaste comes in a recyclable metal tube, with a natty little key to get every last squeeze from the tube. It's
free from Sodium Laurel Sulfate, artificial sweeteners, and fluoride
carton made with 100% wind power
contains calcium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate as gentle cleaners
contains Xylitol (derived from birch trees) to reduce the formation of cavities
