And don’t forget to turn off taps when brushing your teeth to limit the negative effect on the environment.
3. Brush

‘What! No foam? * ALERT *

Please note that Pärla toothpaste tablets create a paste that isn’t as foamy as brands from a tube. That’s because we have removed palm oil based ingredients that make ordinary toothpaste foam. We do appreciate that feeling of satisfaction that comes from a foamy brushing session, but it truly is not essential to getting our mouths sparkly clean!

And when what makes it foamy isn’t good for the environment or for your health, it’s #onesmallchange to help make the planet and your mouth a happier place!

FAQs

What’s wrong with toothpaste in a tube?
By maintaining the toothpaste in a gel state, it requires many more ingredients to stabilise the product and prevent bacterial growth. Pärla is a dehydrated toothpaste tablet, which means we are able to remove a lot of those unnecessary ingredients. Additionally, toothpaste tubes are made of mixed materials, which means they are mostly not recyclable and are therefore a single use product.
Is Pärla cruelty free?
Yes none of our ingredients are tested on animals. Nor will anything about Pärla affect their habitat.
Why does Pärla not foam as much as my old toothpaste?
We care about the environment, which is why we have no palm oil in our products. Palm oil is in almost everything! But palm oil plantations and the associated deforestation are having a devastating effect on the orangutan population. So, who wants foam when we can protect the world’s orangutans?

Eco Journey

Since swapping to a bamboo toothbrush I have been thinking about the amount of plastic toothpaste tubes I use. The next step on my eco journey was finding a zero waste toothpaste. I chose Parla tabs because I saw a review that it was created by dentists which was comforting. Initial reaction after using traditional synthetic toothpaste all my life was that it was not foaming. Truth is my teeth felt clean and that first intake of breath after brushing, mixed with the cool minty flavour made me feel very satisfied that I switched.

Wow! These are perfect!

Tried a few brands and Parla came out as a fav in our house! Easily broke down in mouth and very pleasant peppermint flavour, will be buying again, you should give it a try and see if you like as much as we do!

Good but still getting used to!

Really enjoying that this exists now. I am still getting used to the whole ' chew chew chew but don't swallow' thing....(greedy) but getting there.

The only thing I would say is that it's not as minty fresh for long after I've used .. so I do end up using mouthwash as a precaution as well... not something I would usually need to do.

I know there are mouthwash tabs out there now though so maybe that is what I need to do. Other that that... teeth haven't fallen out yet and no fuzzy gums so fluoride levels good!

Shockingly good

I bought the tabs out of curiosity and I’m trying to find more ways to be eco friendly. I didn’t have too high expectations but was amazed at how clean my teeth feel. Even cleaner than regular toothpaste. I’m now switching to Parla tabs permanently. Plus the taste is great.
