Having started to use more natural skin and haircare products I moved on to making my own toothpaste, but if you read my post on it you’ll know i couldn’t really use it due to the weather here, So I had to look for an alternative and this was it!. I was sceptical at first due to not having any experience of a natural toothpaste and to be honest didn’t think it would work that well. I was wrong!.

Ingredients: Glycerin (non-animal), calcium carbonate, aqua, magnesium carbonate, salvadora persica natural extract, mentha piperita, mentha arvensis oil, eugenia caryophyllus oil, pelargonium roseum oil, hydroxethylcellose, sodium phosphate, limonene, citronellol, geraniol.
Sarakan toothpaste contains natural extract of Salvadora Persica, also known as the ‘toothbrush tree’ – used for centuries in its natural state as twigs as an effective way to keep teeth and gums clean and healthy.
The toothpaste is flavoured with peppermint, clove and geranium which on first brush tastes horrible and a bit like brushing your teeth with perfume, but stick with it. I find this toothpaste actually better at cleaning and stain removal than all the old commercial ones i have tried and my mouth feels amazingly clean after i rinse. I don’t think i could go back to regular toothpaste now and i will continue to buy this as long as my next dental visit goes well (it’s not for 4 months). The taste grows on you also and i actually quite like it better than just ordinary mint toothpaste.
Sarakan can be found in Holland & Barrett in the UK for £2.35 and i got it on a Buy One Get One Half Price offer, so i got it for £1.18 which is a bargain compared to the price of commercial toothpastes!…Give it a try you won’t be disappointed!.
