How to use

Pärla (pearl in Swedish) toothpaste tablets.

1. Chew
Place tablet in mouth and chew for 5 seconds
We recommend you brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day – last thing at night and at least one other time during the day.
2. Hydrate
Use a wet brush to moisten the toothpaste in your mouth
And don’t forget to turn off taps when brushing your teeth to limit the negative effect on the environment.
3. Brush
Brush as normal for 2 minutes. Spit don’t rinse

‘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?

Really great product

This is a fabulous idea and so well executed! I've only been using my Parla toothpaste for about a week, but I'm really impressed with the results so far.

My only qualm would be that it seems to be a little bit watery for my personal taste. It doesn't QUITE break down into a pasty texture, but it's incredibly close considering it comes as a dry tablet. I'm sure this is all personal preference too, and I think by refining my technique or doubling up on tabs I might be able to get closer to the consistency I'd like.

Thanks so much for this product!

Great product!

I was a bit sceptical about trying these but along with everyone else I want to reduce my plastic use. I was proved wrong, they work really well and my teeth feel really clean after using them!

The closest thing I've used to traditional toothpaste yet.

The flavour of the tabs is much better than expected, being fresh and minty. Powders I've tried have smelt minty but tasted pretty awful (although you do get used to it if you persevere). This means that, potentially, it's something my kids would use. The product doesn't froth so it takes a bit of getting used to having a much more liquid experience. For someone with a tricky gag reflex this can be difficult. I have to spit quite frequently and generally feel that, by the end of the brush, I've spat out all the goodness and the last few teeth don't get the same amount of liquid as the first few. I have started rotating my routine to start with different teeth each time to make sure they all get a good brush with the liquid at least once every couple of days. Price wise it's pretty expensive. I brush three times a day so a £6 jar isn't even going to last me (just me) one month and there's four of us in the house. I don't mind paying extra for environmentally sound products but this is a stretch even for me. Perhaps the price will lower as they become more popular. I can't question the ethics behind this product though and hope it does well.
