Toothpaste tablets have been a ‘need to try’ item on my list for a long time. I’ve read consistently about the environmental benefits, as they’re usually in plastic-free packaging and they’re usually packed with kinder ingredients too. So, receiving a pot of toothpaste tablets off Natch (for review) was the perfect opportunity to try them! As ever, I only ever give my honest opinion and recommend genuinely good sustainable items on The Low Waste Weekly, so I hope this will be useful!
So, let me tell you about Natch. They’re a Berlin-based brand creating impactful daily essential products. Their toothpaste tablets contain natural ingredients including calcium hydroxyapatite (HAp) which is a non-toxic alternative to fluoride. Meaning, each tablet cleans and protects your teeth, helping fight decay, naturally. Their toothpaste tablets are also vegan and arrive in plastic-free packaging.

What were my initial thoughts? The tablets are very minty-smelling, which gives them a pleasant taste. It does take a while to get used to them, as it was a little odd for me at the beginning to chew on the dry tablet. However, once you start to brush the crushed powder, it does lather fairly quickly. Making for a very ‘normal’ teeth-brushing-routine from there on out.
So, what did I think of the toothpaste tablets?
Overall, I was very happy with these tablets. I’ve used around 20 of the 85 tablets so far (always brushing twice a day!) and will definitely continue. I’ll admit I was a bit sceptical if they’d make my teeth feel as clean as regular toothpaste. However, I’m pleasantly surprised, as my teeth do feel clean after each brush!
