Well this is finally here… when I posted a snapshot of the product I got lot of mails for the reviews & from pregnant ladies too asking which ingredient is unsafe during pregnancy. So I was a bit sceptical to review this & took my time to find out few things regarding the queries. Let’s jump onto this product now …
Our Herbal Clay toothpaste is a careful blend of mineral clay & mixed herbs: Miswak, Toothache tree (Thomar) , Clove & Tea Tree. Its antibacterial & antiseptic properties prevent bleeding gums , plaque , tartar & cavities giving you complete hygiene. Perfectly safe for diabetics, pregnant & lactating mothers. Check their WEBSITE for more details.
Price:275INR for 100ml.
My Take on the Product:
For me this didn’t do anything special that normal drugstore toothpaste won’t do. The only thing that drags your attention is the fab ingredients list which contains some powerful natural ingredients like Tea Tree & clove which are antibacterial & antiseptic. Clove’s strong antiseptic properties helps in keeping bad breath at bay & Tea Tree Oil is has strong antibacterial properties.
Apart from this I didn’t like the texture much as being used to gel toothpastes like closeup which are smooth while this one makes me feel using gritty ingredient on my teeth..hmmm it’s same like colgate toothpaste. The taste is not very bad as we expect from an herbal brand, so all together it’s a good daily oral care product with a heavy price tag.
I didn’t find any ingredient(as listed on pack) which would cause any harm to pregnant ladies or diabetics but possibly some people may be allergic to Tea Tree Oil.
Readers Queries: (*I am not an Oral expert. I have tried to put up as much correct information I am able to find out. Please don’t rely on this completely & consult your dentist before jumping onto conclusion.)
Does changing of toothpaste brand effects oral health? (I got around 10 same queries)
For this I have googled a lot & the end conclusion is that the toothpaste brand doesn’t matter much as far as it is safe for oral use but the proper brushing technique is important. The best of the toothpastes will not be able to provide you a good oral care unless you brush your teeth properly. Plaque, Tartar, Bleeding gums are interrelated to each other giving an indication of poor oral hygiene. Make sure that you brush properly reaching every corner of your mouth. Hard bristles of the toothbrush can damage your gums & make them bleed.
Choose a soft bristled toothbrush which is not hard on your gums & make sure to reach every corner of your mouth. Brush slowly & atleast for 10-15 mins .Brush twice a day or atleast floss your mouth with a good mouthwash before going to bed. The proper brushing will reduce the plaque & tartar but prevention is difficult .
You will find most of the same ingredients in all the brands but in India a lot of importance is given to Ayurveda which uses natural ingredients for treatments. Any day an herbal ingredient is safe for body rather than a chemical one . But nowadays a lot of brands claim to be herbal & also use chemical ingredients. But in reality if we see chewing Neem Dhatun is the most effective way to keep your teeth healthy & strong with healthy oral care. A single ingredient is enough for complete oral care.
So again ingredients doesn’t matter much as far as they are safe for the body & used in right proportion..
Oral hygiene depends how you take care of your brushing habits rather than any toothpaste brand .
The Nature’s Co Herbal Clay toothpaste, I find is pretty much similar to any other drugstore brand but with a heavy price tag. It definitely looks appealing with its fab ingredients list but I have been using this since a month & didn’t notice any noticeable difference in my oral health.
PS: Product sent by brand for consideration. This however has not affected my review.
