The Origin Story
WHY: It is estimated that 400 Million plastic toothpaste tubes are thrown away each year in the United States alone. 1.5 Billion worldwide!
No Tube. No Paste. No Waste. That’s the motto from Unpaste who are trying to reduce the insane amount of plastic waste with our toothpaste usage. These tablets come in a compostable paper packet, are certified safe, effective and all natural. Oh and they are great to sail through TSA as they are not liquid!
To create the ultimate travel kit, we have added a stainless steel slider tin to take 2 weeks worth of tabs with you on your next adventure!

Conventional toothpastes contain chemical preservatives. These little chewable toothpaste pills contain no preservatives, are Vegan and cruelty free, Non-GMO, gluten free, and fluoride free.
They contain no dyes, synthetic fragrances, silicones, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, paraffin or other petroleum based products.
Unpaste tablets are minty fresh and leave your mouth fresh for hours.
The tablets are soft and easily crumble into a fine powder when bitten. A little water from a cup or drawn off of a toothbrush turns them into paste in seconds for easy brushing.
Ingredients: Microfine Cellulose (Microcrystalline Cellulose) polishes your teeth ultra smoothly into the interdental spaces. Therefore, new particles on the tooth surfaces can simply bead off, plaque growth is inhibited in the first place. Sodium bicarbonate (Baking Soda) adjusts the pH of the tablet with citric acid. Silica (Silica) serves as a cleaning agent and helps to remove any soft plaque. Amisoft (Sodium Lauryl Glutamate) is a surfactant that combines the dissolved proteins and fats with water to flush them out while rinsing. In Amisoft glutamic acid is esterified with coconut fatty acids. In this chemical process, two naturally occurring substances (coconut fatty acids and glutamic acid) are combined, losing their original properties. Glutamate should not be confused with the flavor enhancers used in the food industry. Unpaste tablets are glutamate and gluten free. Magnesium Stearate is an herbal adjuvant used in tablet manufacturing. Natural Mint Aroma, together with stevia and menthol, provide a pleasant feeling of freshness and a “cool” and fresh breath. Menthol, together with stevia and the mint aroma, provides the pleasant “freshness afterwards”. Xanthan Gum is a natural thickener and gelling agent and provides the pleasant creaminess after chewing Unpaste tablets. Stevia (Stevioside) is a sweet-tasting plant that, together with the aroma and the menthol, provides the good taste. The stevia flavor is very mild. Citric Acid regulates the pH value together with sodium bicarbonate ( see above ) and stimulates the salivation. The increased flow of saliva causes a faster remineralization of the tooth surfaces. Eugenol is part of the natural mint flavor.
The goal of Unpaste toothpaste tablets is to provide best possible dental care using the least amount of chemical ingredients possible, with no waste.
BDIH (Association of kind German Industries and Trading Firms) is a German based organization comprising over 400 producers and distributors of cosmetics, food supplements, nutritional foods and over-the-counter medicine that has a comprehensive set of guidelines for certifying natural cosmetics.
The guidelines cover raw materials from plant & mineral, animal protection and they forbid the use of organic-synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrances, silicones, paraffin and other petroleum based products.”
We have chosen to create a zero-waste travel kit for these toothpaste tabs using a stainless steel tin which is long lasting and ultimately recyclable.
