So I tried the Splat Organic toothpaste. I shifted from my normal toothpaste and started using it. In a couple of weeks, after finishing the tube I will update and tell you if my teeth have whitened as well in the process.
For now let me tell you about my immediate reactions after using it for a few days. Clearly (as shown on the packaging) the toothpaste contains natural Aloe Vera. Although technically one is not supposed to swallow a toothpaste, there are many toothpastes that have a tendency to taste to strong. I quite liked the taste of the Splat Organic toothpaste, as there is a subtle taste of mint and Aloe Vera, yet it is not overpowering.
Splat Organic contains not only Aloe Vera (to keep the gums healthy), but also natural papaya and tea tree oil. The company states that the natural papaya enzyme removes soft dental plaque, whilst the tea tree oil prevents plaque formation. Combo effect. This particular toothpaste contains egg shells used to boost calcium needed to strengthen tooth enamel. It obviously is not vegan friendly (but good for vegetarians).
One of the main recommendation you can find about this product is that it is recommended for use during pregnancy (but I cannot verify that for you :-). There is a growing movement for pregnant mums to be to go organic. This means that also the toothpaste you use should be organic.
The vegan Range
Splat though has a range of vegan friendly toothpaste. In fact, the next toothpaste I want will try after finishing the the Organic will be the Blackwood Charcoal. This is a black toothpaste created for high-spirited men! In all, the brand has eight toothpastes that are vegan friendly.
Interestingly Splat state that for the past 5 years they have maintained a carbon neutral program of production.
