Xylitol: Xylitol is a natural sweetener that is well known to fight off the bacteria that are responsible for cavities. Xylitol is the main ingredient in our toothpaste tablets.
Di calcium Phosphate: Di calcium Phosphate is made of calcium and phosphate, both of these ingredients are essential to our diets. For this reason, it's often used as a calcium supplement. We use Di calcium phosphate in our toothpaste tablets because it is a wonderful self-preserving ingredient that is well known for its gentle polishing properties.
Sodium bicarbonate: A simple but yet very effective natural ingredient for our toothpaste tablets. The alkaline nature of Sodium bicarbonate makes it a wonderful ingredient that helps to neutralize acids in your mouth and in small quantities helps to polish your pearly whites.
Cream of tartar: Cream of tartar is a by-product in the wine making industry. During the fermentation process of wine, small crystals form around the inside of wine barrels. After the purification process, these crystals are turned into a cream of tartar.
Our cream of tartar is a wonderful natural preservative and in combination with sodium bicarbonate, it helps to make our happy tabs toothpaste tablets extra bubbly.

Fluoride: According to dentists fluoride remains an important ingredient in toothpaste, there are two main benefits. Firstly, it helps to remineralize your tooth enamel and secondly, it makes your teeth much more acid-resistant which is great for cavity protection.
We are aware that there are also people that would prefer to use fluoride-free toothpaste tablets. For the people that prefer to brush with fluoride-free toothpaste tablets, we recommend the Charcoal Mint version.
