(This product was sent to me for review)
The idea of zero waste oral care makes me happy, so I thought I would take the time to introduce you to Brushd. Brushd. is an eco-friendly oral care company that provides products that will help you reduce plastic pollution without compromising on great oral health and is dentist-approved. The Brushd. range includes everything you could need to take care of your teeth and gums, from eco-friendly paste, toothbrushes, tablets, dental supplements, dental floss to electric toothbrush heads.
The aim of zero waste is to reduce trash sent to landfills to and to minimize the toxic impact on the planet by using biodegradable, compostable, or reusable products instead of choosing the more harmful plastic and non-recyclable products that will only further cause harm to wildlife and environmental problems.
The Toothpaste tablets from Brushd. are available both with fluoride and fluoride-free, come in a cute travel-friendly sized glass jar that I plan to keep and reuse. They have a subtle minty scent and foam up really well but can feel very dry and like the tablets are getting stuck in your teeth when you first start to crunch the tablets in your mouth to make the paste, but this may be just me doing it wrong as I have never used toothpaste tablets before Brushd. They do however leave your mouth feeling minty fresh, without the burning and overwelling mintiness of regular toothpaste.
The corn Dental Floss, coated in a plant-based candelilla wax, and biodegradable has a very subtle minty scent and taste to it. I have never used dental floss before and I loved this stuff, it really helped to get in between my teeth and a little goes a really long way, seriously this little jar has 30 meters of floss in it and it comes in a tiny and cute glass jar.
The Dental Supplements, completely vegan, contains essential vitamins and minerals needed for strong and healthy teeth and gums such as:
Calcium - helps harden your enamel and strengthen your jawbone.
Vitamin D - helps the body absorb calcium while boosting bone mineral density.
Vitamin C - strengthens your gums and the soft tissue in your mouth.
Vitamin A - prevents dry mouth and helps your mouth heal quickly.
Vitamin K - supports bone strength
Potassium - improves bone mineral density.
Since I started taking these I definitely feel my teeth are stronger ad healthier, they are easy to swallow but I would say do so quickly because I found that the taste could be offputting for some. I believe it tastes very similar to that of one of that fizzy candy, please don't eat them like candy!
The Electric toothbrush heads come in a box of two, compatible with oral-b electric toothbrushes, has charcoal infused bristles. Every order of the electric toothbrush heads comes with a pre-paid mailer bag so that the brushes can be sent back and recycled when they have reached their end of life, the prepaid mailer bag is also a plant-based bag and compostable. I didn't get to use these as I don't have an electric quality but they definitely look and feel like quality brush heads and the fact that they can be sent back for recycling is a plus.
The mouthwash tablets are an alternative to plastic bottled mouthwash, they have a subtle minty scent and are easy to use. To use these just pop one tablet in some water and let it dissolve into the water. Each travel-friendly size bottle contains 60 tablets. The scent does smell minty but when dissolved in the water you can barely taste the mintiness and it doesn't give you that mouth burning sensation, rather it's more a cooling feel. I really loved these and use them twice daily to keep my mouth and breathe clean and smelling fresh. I also feel my breath stays fresher a lot longer than the mouth burning plastic bottled mouthwashes I have tried in the past.
The Charcoal Bamboo toothbrushes are made from bamboo with charcoal infused bristles look and feel like amazing quality brushes. The brush handles are biodegradable and can be composted after removing the bristles. If you buy a toothbrush from Brushd., for every brush you purchase they will donate 1 to someone in need on your behalf. I honestly loved these brushes and will be buying another one after this one has served its purpose. The bristles feel a lot softer on my teeth and gums, the head is a great size and the handle is simple but stylish.
The Brushed. Interdental brushes, are tiny, with little bamboo handles and workd great but work wonders helping to remove the build-up between my teeth gaps. Though I ended up using the floss more as my teeth are not perfect and I couldn't fit these brushes in between a lot of my teeth.They are designed with little bamboo handles so to reduce plastic usage and they look cute.

Overall, I really enjoyed using these products and will be looking to get more from Brushd. once my stock runs out as I feel that I am left with a better clean, much healthier and stronger teeth and gums as well as it being great for the environment. Brushd. is extremely great value for money, in my opinion, has many eco-friendly products available and all products come in plastic-free packing. If I had to rate Brushd. out of 10, they would be getting a solid 9/10 from me, I highly recommend checking out Brushd. if you are looking to be more eco-friendly with your oral care.
