FREE CO2-NEUTRAL SHIPPING ON BRUSH MINTS

WHY TOOTHPASTE IN A TAB?

Most regular toothpaste comes in plastic tubes. They were a great invention in the 19th century, but they’ve become a problem now. Each year, over 1.5 billion of them end up in landfills and our oceans, where they hardly decompose. The rest of the 20 billion produced each year gets burned, causing CO2.

We want to change that.

CAN WE RECYCLE TOOTHPASTE TUBES?

Nope. They are made of different layers of different plastics, often surrounding a thin aluminium layer, with toothpaste leftovers in the tubes.

This all-in-all is technically and economically not possible to recycle. 

DO BRUSH MINTS HAVE THE SAME INGREDIENTS AS REGULAR TOOTHPASTE? 

No. Regular toothpaste is a chemical mixture of artificial dyes, foaming agents (SLS), chemicals for conserving and sometimes microplastics. Plus most of them are not cruelty-free and vegan. Smyle has 100% natural ingredients, and is:

TUBE-FREE

MICRO-PLASTICS-FREE

ALLERGEN-FREE

CRUELTY-FREE

MMM. I HAVE SOME MORE QUESTIONS.

DO I STILL NEED TO BRUSH WITH A TOOTHBRUSH? 

YES, SMYLING IS EASY! CRUSH a Mint with your teeth BRUSH with a wet toothbrush for 2 minutes or more. Rinse your mouth and SMYLE! REPEAT at least twice a day.

 

CAN I STILL USE AN ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH?

Sure you can. Electric or manual it doesn't matter. 

 

HOW DOES IT TASTE?

It tastes like peppermint. Super fresh. 

 

HOW MUCH DO I SAVE?

If you start using SMYLE you will save each month 1 toothpaste tube. With a family of 4 this can really add up. Not only are you saving on plastic waste, but also on the use of oil.

  

PLASTIC VERSUS GLASS

Obviously a glass bottle also has to be produced in a process that requires commodities, water, and energy. But once made it can be used for a long time, instead of making a new plastic tube every so many weeks. It’s sent in a recycled carton box, and refills are also packed in carton.

 

WHAT DOES ALL NATURAL MEAN?

We started Smyle because we wanted to brush our own teeth without harmful chemicals. Most toothpastes contain harsh chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate as well as microplastics. Many are tested on animals. Our tabs are made from only natural ingredients. Right now we’re working with our suppliers to get all our ingredients certified as organic. We expect to reach that point at the end of 2020.

 

DO THESE FOAM?

Due to the natural coco oil extract, our mints do foam. Because your mouth is not a mediterranean discotheque for adolescents, it doesn’t require the exuberant foam party caused by the chemicals the average toothpaste contains. Our mints foam just enough to be pleasant and clean your teeth and gums. But like all things new, you might need a few days to get used to it, but after that you will never tube again.

 

WHERE ARE YOU PRODUCTS PRODUCED AND WHERE ARE YOU BASED? 

Smyle brush mints are as Dutch as Gouda cheese, windmills, and wearing running shoes to the opera. 

 

HOW DOES YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WORK?

With our subscription service you will never run out of Smyles. You receive a starter kit, this included a glass bottle. This will be your refillable bottle and we ship every 4 months carton pouches with refills.
