Eco-Friendly Oral Care: Introducing Chewable Toothpaste Tablets

Keeping our smiles sparkling clean is a daily ritual we should all prioritise, but it’s not without its challenges.

Have you ever stopped to think about the environmental impact of those countless tubes of toothpaste you go through? Have you ever experienced the frustration of a toothpaste tube exploding in your bag or melting in your car on a hot day? And let’s not forget the challenge of keeping your oral care routine on track while you’re off camping or travelling.

At Myospots, we understand these challenges all too well. That’s why we’re giving your toothpaste a makeover that’s better for both your body and the environment!

Introducing: hydroxyapatite toothpaste tablets. These compact, chewable alternatives to traditional toothpaste in a tube offer more than just sustainability; they bring convenience and a fresh approach to your oral care routine.

What are toothpaste tablets?

Looking for a modern twist on your traditional tube of toothpaste? Toothpaste tablets offer an environmentally friendly, convenient, and mess-free way to look after your pearly whites.

Whether you’re jetting off on a weekend getaway, freshening up after lunch or just trying to streamline your morning routine, toothpaste tablets just might be your perfect solution.

Simply put, they’re dry toothpaste powder, compressed into tablet form.

The beauty of toothpaste tablets lies in their simplicity and ease of use. No more tube squishing, rolling, and folding to squeeze toothpaste onto your toothbrush. Simply pop a tablet into your mouth, crush it, brush as usual, rinse, then enjoy that familiar burst of minty freshness that keeps your mouth feeling clean all day.

How do chewable toothpaste tablets work?

Using toothpaste tablets couldn’t be simpler:

  1. Crush: Begin by crushing one toothpaste tablet between your teeth. Chew it for about 10-15 seconds to help the granules mix with your saliva. This helps to activate the toothpaste.
  2. Brush: Wet your toothbrush and brush your teeth as you normally would. As you brush, you’ll notice the tablet beginning to foam. The foam helps to distribute the toothpaste evenly across the surface of your teeth and gums and helps to lift away plaque and debris.
  3. Rinse: Once you’re finished brushing, simply rinse your mouth with water, then spit out all the foam to remove any toothpaste residue and leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean.

Toothpaste tablets vs regular toothpaste

When it comes to comparing toothpaste tablets to regular toothpaste, you may have a few questions, like how are toothpaste tablets better for the planet than toothpaste tubes? And are toothpaste tablets effective?

Well, several benefits set toothpaste tablets apart from traditional toothpaste in tubes.

  1. Less plastic waste: Traditional toothpaste tubes typically contain various plastics and are often lined with metal, making them extremely challenging to recycle. This unfortunate reality means that these tubes can sit in landfill for literally hundreds of years, contributing to pollution.
    Thankfully, Myospots toothpaste tablets come in a fully recyclable, eco-friendly glass container. By opting for our tablets, you’re not only caring for your oral health but also minimising your environmental footprint.
  2. Easier for on-the-go use: Toothpaste tablets are engineered for convenience. The eco-friendly glass container is not only durable but also designed with travel in mind, effortlessly fitting into your luggage, briefcase, or backpack without the fear of messy spills. Moreover, the dry tablet format is a game-changer for situations where liquids are restricted, such as on international flights. Plus, you can leave your bag in the car without worrying about your toothpaste melting all over the place.
  3. Better ingredients: Here’s a fun fact: traditional toothpastes often contain preservatives to prevent the growth of microbes inside the tube. But guess what? Since toothpaste tablets are waterless, they don’t need preservatives at all!

At Myospots, we’ve taken it a step further by engineering the most natural toothpaste possible. We’ve carefully selected ingredients that not only provide an exceptional clean but also eliminate the need for additions like artificial colours or flavours.

Our chewable toothpaste tablets are even fluoride-free. Instead, they contain a mineral that naturally occurs in your body, hydroxyapatite, making them more kid-friendly and non-toxic.

Like fluoride, hydroxyapatite helps to reduce plaque buildup and supports the remineralisation of your tooth enamel. Hydroxyapatite contains calcium and phosphate, to help form a protective barrier on the surface of your teeth. This barrier acts as a defence against sugars and acids that could otherwise lead to cavities or tooth decay.

You can find a full list of our thoughtfully selected ingredients here.
