Yep! It is toothpaste in tablet form.
When a toothpaste tablet is chewed, it magically transforms into toothpaste. You can then use your toothbrush to clean your teeth as usual.
These tablets have fluoride to protect your teeth from decay and a super-fresh minty aftertaste.
For those who want their toothpaste to be “paste” (fair enough!) Solid Oral Care have only New Zealand made toothpaste in a jar.
Comes in two sizes: 30 tablets / 30grams & 120 tablets / 60grams.
AND you can bring the jars back to us and we will send them away to be sterilised and reused.
Made in Titahi Bay, Wellington.
You might be asking “Why should I use toothpaste tablets or toothpaste in a jar? What’s so bad about toothpaste in a tube?”
Toothpaste tubes are made from a combination of plastic and metal and are unrecyclable in New Zealand. Over 1 BILLION toothpaste tubes per year end up in a landfill. Or, they end up floating in our oceans where they pose a risk to birds, animals and sea life. Or, they break down into microplastics of which the long term consequences are unknown.
