Kaylaan toothpaste tablet review

Crunch. Brush. Smile. I recently came across this New York based small business via a wholesale website I was browsing while looking for new eco-friendly and safe personal care products to offer to my March buying club. Many of us are on a plastic-free mission (as much as possible anyway) and toothpaste is 1 product that we all use daily (I hope). So, I thought I’d give it a trial offering, and I’m happy to report there was quite a bit of interest in it. I divided some of the 90 tablet tins into 10ct samples, and many took advantage of that.

So far I have tried: cinnamon, strawberry, watermelon and blueberry. I honestly have enjoyed them all very much. They pack a surprising amount of foamy punch in a small little tablet. Some in my group who have sampled them have actually said they’re too foamy, or at least that it will take some getting used to. Many of us have switched to toothpastes that don’t foam at all (such as my coconut oil-based option) so foam is a new sensation again! You do just simply pop the little tablet into your mouth, crunch it and it basically dissolves into a powder, and brush!

They offer several flavors in a 90ct tin ($12), as well as refill pouches, starter kits, bamboo toothbrushes and duos which save you a bit of money. You can get them with, or without, fluoride (I won’t get into that debate, I trust you to come to an informed decision on the topic yourself, we don’t use it in our house). Deepti, the owner, has been wonderful to work with and has offered great customer service, which is very important to me.

So many bad things came out of the pandemic of course. But 1 thing that I appreciate and admire is the inventiveness of people who took the plunge and created a new small business. Maybe something brand new entirely or accelerating something they already had initiated. This is the story of Kaylaan (from their website). The Whole World Is a Stage– From an early stage, we found ourselves deeply caring about the use of plastic and climate change. During the peak of the pandemic we accelerated our project, we combined our passion for the sustainable lifestyle that we were already living and created one simple product that is used by everyone in the world: Toothpaste. But not the commercial kind of toothpaste that you are familiar with, you know, the kind that is filled with all types of chemicals, packaged in single-use plastic which cannot be recycled and ultimately ends up in a landfill after use.

What does Kaylaan mean? It’s a Nepalese word that translates into: “Wishing you good health”.

  • Ingredients:
  • Sodium Bicarbonate
  • Calcium Carbonate
  • Xylitol
  • Erythritol
  • Stevia
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
  • Magnesium Stearate

On the ingredients: 3 of them I use in my homemade paste as well (sodium bicarb (baking soda), calcium carb, and xylitol). Both xylitol and erythritol have known oral health benefits. I had to do a bit of research on sodium cocoyl isethionate as I wasn’t too familiar with it. About it: Sodium cocoyl isethionate is a surfactant based on fatty acids from coconut oil and isoethionic acid, a type of sulfonic acid. EWG rates it a 1. It is not expected to be an environmental toxin. It is classified as not expected to be potentially toxic or harmful, nor is it suspected to be bioaccumulative. This ingredient is what gives it the foaming properties.

My husband and I are both enjoying it. And it’s definitely a very travel-friendly option! My kids don’t love it. I think they tried it once or twice. They said it has an after taste. And I do pick up a tiny bit of a soapy after taste. If you’ve ever tried tooth soap, it’s similar to that. But in my opinion, it’s very mild. I’m a huge fan of variety, so we have several options in my house. I think if it was the only option, my kids would use it without complaint. But I haven’t seen them reaching for it. I keep it in regular rotation with several flavors of my own, as well as Poofy Organics options.

I’d love to hear from those of you who’ve tried it and know how you’re liking it!
