This vegan and zero-waste toothpowder is a great way to reduce your environmental footprint and also to take control of what goes on and in your body. 

Average toothpaste usually has non-recyclable packaging and very often is tested on animals - all that makes it not a very great product. There are of course more sustainable options like vegan toothpaste in metal tubes, tooth-tablets - they are all great! Make sure you find your favorite solution that has a lesser impact on the planet. 

 

I've been using it for about a year and I love it. It will not melt and leak while traveling, you can easily transfer it to a smaller container if you go for a few days trip and what is the most important is that it takes only a few minutes to make and there is no need for double pots, melting oils, and all that mess. It also is quite refreshing.

    • :) I am happy you are interested! I really hope you like it. :) Xylitol helps with protecting the teeth from damage. I have to say my teeth were doing really great on this one! At the moment I am buying toothpaste tabs from my zw shop as I am too busy to even make such a simple recipe, but once I have more time I will be back at it!
