I've tried making my own toothpaste, and I've also tried just brushing with coconut oil, and let me tell ya, I am just not there yet (I know, I can't believe it, either, haha!). My teeth just never feel as clean with my homemade mix. So, I decided to do a little experiment and try out three of the most common hydroxyapatite toothpastes on the market. When I first came across them, I was like... how do I choose? So I tried them all. FYI, I purchased all of these on my own. Keep reading for our feedback - I share some of my husband's, too. After all, he's the toughest toothpaste critic since we became a natural toothpaste household (lol).
RiseWell - The flavor is good, not too intense, but probably the least frothy of them all. This was my mom's favorite. My hubby said it made his teeth feel oily and it tasted fresh but not as minty as he would have liked.
Boka (Ela Mint) - Silky feeling on teeth with a nice mint flavor. Middle of the pack froth wise. My hubby didn't like the slippery feeling on his teeth as much and the flavor was good but more floral than he was expecting. Both of my parents thought this one was okay.
Wellnesse - Frothiest of the three, super minty, but almost burny to me. My oral mucosa is super sensitive after being burned by essential oil toothpastes that weren't well balanced, so I just can't handle it well. My hubby said at first it reminded him of Comet cleaner. However, after a trial period of all three, this was his favorite "because it foamed the most and had the mintiest flavor." This was also my papa's favorite and a close second for my mom.
NOTE: I purchased these all on my own and became an affiliate for my favorite one only after trying each of them several times. If you have been following my Instagram stories, you'll know I have been working on this "taste test" for awhile!
