R39.90 for 100ml, or R115 for a bulk pack of 3 from Faithful to Nature.
Will I buy this again?
Yes, I’ve been buying the bulk pack for about a year now.
Despite being three times more expensive than your average tube of Colgate toothpaste, Earthsap still offers the best value for money compared to its other natural and organic rivals.
Personally, I am not impressed by products with long lists of ingredients, even if they are organic. Hence, I appreciate that Earthsap has kept their ingredients to a simple and necessary few. My impression of the Earthsap brand is that it seems to embrace the principles of: “Do more with less”, and “Take only what you need”. So in other words, this product has all that you need in a natural toothpaste.
Flavour & Texture
I was a bit skeptical about both the taste and texture when I saw baking soda in the ingredient list. Many homemade recipes with baking soda tend to be salty and grainy. I was pleasantly surprised with the smooth texture and subtle sweetness of this toothpaste. It has a delicate peppermint taste, and is far from the strong minty flavour of Colgate, Aquafresh and the likes. The only other brand of natural toothpaste that I’ve tried at this point is Nature Fresh’s Herbal Toothpaste, which also had a stronger flavour than this product. I also noticed that the already mild minty flavour faded considerably over time. Considering this, you may find that you have to brush twice, or follow up with mouthwash for refreshingly fresh breath. On the other hand, if you find strong toothpaste flavours overpowering, and the sour taste after sipping orange juice intolerable – then this toothpaste is your solution.
The paste foams up well, and that coupled with the baking soda undoubtedly makes this an effective cleaner, and tooth whitening agent.
I imagine that it’s a bit difficult to move away from the plastic tube for toothpaste packaging, but at least the entire tube, lid and all, is made from recyclable plastic.
Cherry on top:
- Affordable when compared to the cost of other natural & organic brands.
- Uses simple & necessary ingredients.
- Effective cleaner.
- Recyclable packaging.
- Very mild flavour that fades over time.
