So you’re in the market for a dental routine that you can really gel with. One that will give you a reason to smile. Enter Lush’s new toothpaste tablets: Solid and fluoride-free toothpaste that’s travel-friendly and swish with delectable flavours.
Navigating your local drug store’s oral hygiene aisle can be tricky, specifically when your criteria goes beyond the best option for whitening your smile. Instead, you may be looking for environmentally friendly, vegan, and cruelty-free dental care to refresh your routine and your breath. So, here’s a list of reasons you may have found the right mouth care once and f-oral, and a little bit about each one:
Whether it’s brushing up on your oral hygiene after lunch at work or circumnavigating the globe in a kayak, the products in this new mouth range are handy, easy solutions. Before you go, simply slip them in your bag. If that bag is your hand luggage, great news! You can go global without worrying about sky-high liquid restrictions.
Conventional toothpaste is predominantly packaged in plastic-coated, aluminium-lined tubes that are rarely recyclable. In fact, the plastic components may take up to 450 years to break down. Want a toothpaste that keeps your pearly whites healthy without contributing to landfill? Toothpaste tablets are packaged in recycled and recyclable bottles; you can pop the bottle straight into your home recycling after use and bring the top back to Lush.
Unique flavours and ingredients
If you like to stick to the status quo, dip your brush into the water and enjoy fresh, minty Miles of Smiles. The triple blast of English peppermint, organic peppermint and wild mint oils inside are a quick fix for a tingly clean feel and the fiery mint family contains powerful, antibacterial qualities to promote healthy mouths. Want to venture out a little further? Get down and Dirty - but superbly clean - with Dirty. Stimulating, cooling spearmint oil and feel-good neroli combine with cleansing kaolin to keep you feeling fresh on the go, no matter how filthy you get on the outside.
Daredevils unbuckle your seatbelts. Zesty Limelight is bursting with beneficial ingredients like lime and lemon oils to thoroughly cleanse the mouth and baobab fruit powder adds a lemon sherbet flavour. Looking for something a little sweeter? Try Bubblegum. Lush’s most popular lip scrub takes toothpaste tablet form. Instead of sugar, the sweetness comes from plant-based sweetener xylitol. When used in oral care, the antibacterial properties of this ingredient help to reduce acid. Add in calming marshmallow root powder and you’ve got the perfect combination for soothing and gently cleansing teeth.
Toothy Fruity toothpaste tablets are multicoloured, but whichever one you chews, you’ll get the same great cherry flavour thanks to a mix of lime oil, orange oil and almond essential oil. Looking for a natural exfoliation from your toothpaste? The charcoal and fine sea salt in Boom help to remove plaque from the surface of the teeth - great alternatives to microplastics. Aniseed and black pepper provide a warming spicy cola flavour. Who knew brushing your teeth could be so exciting?
The ‘F’ word
You may be used to finding fluoride in your regular toothpaste (and water systems for that matter) but you won't find it in Lush toothpaste tablets, jellies or mouthwash tablets. This is simply to give customers more choice when it comes to finding their perfect dental products. A combination of cleansing ingredients such as sodium bicarbonate, kaolin, sea salt, menthol crystals, peppermint and lemon oils mean these inventive alternatives are effective and fluoride-free, when combined with a healthy diet and good oral hygiene (that includes flossing, folks).

Now you’ve got your toothpaste sorted, you may be wondering what to do about mouthwash. Never fear, Lush has a selection of those too, so open wide and discover the whole range here…
