My Favorite Dental Hygiene Products!
I get a lot of questions about toothpaste, teeth whitening and what I use on a daily basis.
First of all, if you're wanting to change to cleaner and healthier products, I think dental hygiene products are some of the first things to switch over since you're most likely ingesting these ingredients. But have no fear! Switch out that Colgate when you're done with it. Don't be like me and throw away every single toxic item in your home all at once. You'll be overwhelmed, limited on funds and limited on FUN. Corny, but it's true.
Ok, now that's out of the way.
I used to love buying toothbrushes. Maybe that's weird. But I would buy a toothbrush from CVS or Target and not think much about it. Then I would turn around and buy a new one 2 months later.
As I've been on this cleaner and greener journey, I care about what I'm purchasing and the life that item has after I've used it.
Now, we all need toothbrushes. But what if we bought one that performed the same but could be composted and not have a negative affect on the world? YES PLEASE.
I've loved WooBamboo toothbrushes since I switched to healthier products a few years ago. Bamboo toothbrushes are such an awesome alternative to plastic toothbrushes.
Bamboo grows naturally and doesn't have any chemicals are pesticides. The bristles of the toothbrushes are recyclable and the handle is compostable - yay no waste! Bamboo is also antimicrobial. So you don't have to worry about any germs or bacteria!
WooBamboo has floss too! Which was new to me! It is made with natural and biodegradable silk and is in plant based plastic packaging! Why can't everything be packaged with plant based plastic?!
WooBamboo was kind enough to send over a coupon code for all of their products! Use the code TRULYAMBER20 for 20% off here!
Another favorite floss is by CocoFloss! While the floss itself isn't biodegradable, the floss is in a recyclable container. Their Delicious Mint floss is naturally flavored but not all of their flosses are. I like the texture of this floss. It's thick enough to really get in between the teeth and clean those babies.
For toothpaste, my favorite has been David's Toothpaste! It has a thick texture and feels just like conventional toothpaste - but without the nasty ingredients! David's Toothpaste naturally whitens your teeth and has a fresh minty flavor. You can thank the 100% USA made natural mint oil they use!
David's Toothpaste is in a recyclable metal tube and 98% of their ingredients are from the USA! They're all about sustainability and providing jobs in America!
Just try David's Toothpaste guys, you won't regret it.
For mouthwash, I lovvvve Dr. Brite's Mint Mouthwash. It's so minty and refreshing and really leaves your mouth feeling squeaky clean. This mouthwash doesn't have alcohol in it so it won't burn or sting at all! With charcoal and vitamin c being some of the ingredients, this mouthwash will kill bacteria and give you healthy gums!
I've talked about Dr. Brites's Mouthspray before. But I will mention it again. It's only 2oz. so I keep it in my purse always. Just a few sprays of this mouthspray will freshen up your breath and you'll be all set!
Let's continue on this Dr. Brite train, shall we? I love their Dr. Brite Get Brite Pen as well. They say you'll see your teeth look two shades whiter in 2 days. But I can see a noticeable difference in the color of my teeth even the morning after using it! What's even better is that you won't experience any sensitivity!
Save 10% on all Dr. Brite's products when you use TrulyAmber.
Last but not least, you gotta keep your tongue clean too! I use and love Dr. Tungs Stainless Steel Tongue Cleaner. It removes plaque and bacteria and will even freshen your breath since it scrapes off all that gunk! And it's such a steal at only $7.26!
That's all folks! I hope you try out some of these cleaner products!
I hope you guys have a great rest of the week!
