Gaiia : the organic & vegan solid toothpaste

According to Gaiia, soap has been used for brushing teeth for over 165 years. The toothpaste tube was introduced in the 1890s and contained soap. Soap was removed from the formulas in 1946 and was replaced by other ingredients such as Sodium lauryl sulfate or the Sodium laureth sulfate.

The manufacturer refuses synthetic detergents such as SLS, SLMI and SCI... and launches an organic solid toothpaste based on cold saponified soap. Enriched with charcoal, licorice and essential oil of mint, it helps maintain healthy teeth and gums, while refreshing breath.
Vegan, refillable, both ecological and economical (4 to 5 months of use), this black ingot is confusing at first use, but finally fulfills the mission it is given.

In the brushing of the teeth with this solid toothpaste, the strangest is the implementation... The manufacturer specifies that it needs very little material to be effective. So much the better, because in any case, it would be difficult to take a lot on the bristles of the toothbrush! It is necessary to wet the head of the brush and to rub against the ingot. A light transfer of matter takes place delicately. The brushing can then be done normally. However, as the brush is in direct contact with the teeth and gums, without any paste or cream or gel to buffer it, they are certainly more sensitive. But nothing prohibitive. This solid toothpaste will convince the fans of anyhdres products, the consumers who are looking for vegan solutions and the travelers who don't want to bother with the security controls concerning liquids...
