93 out of 106 people would recommend this product14/11/2019, By KathrynExcellent product but a little salty and leaves some residual black spots on my teeth if i don't rinse thoroughly so I would recommend pairing it with a fresh mouthwash after but I will continue to buy!05/11/2019, By ChristineLeaves your teeth squeaky clean and fresh!02/11/2019, By Tholeka
Love this toothpaste. It leaves you teeth brighter and whiter in an instant. No turning back for me.30/10/2019, By LebogangThis is a great product since it whitens teeth and is also a oil pulling in a paste form.30/10/2019, By ChristineMy search for a good natural toothpaste has finally been completed with this discovery! Over the years I have been searching for a good, natural tooth paste & have tried most of them (avoiding the Xylitol infested ones...) - and having even attempted making my own, I am happy to have found this... it tastes good and my mouth/teeth feel really good. However this may not be for everyone as it does require to be scooped out of the container (glass - yay!)- and the rinsing process can be a little messy as the black does show up all over the basin - but besides that its really worth it and really does work.29/10/2019, By ShannonThe taste is a surprise... but after a while, I got used to it and actually enjoy all the subtle flavours of the toothpaste. It makes my mouth feel really healthy. The rinsing is a bit of a chore though28/10/2019, By SunéAt first I decided I will get used to the taste but later on I couldn't handle it so much anymore. It was also a bit too messy for me. I also didn't really see any results. Unfortunately, not for me.28/10/2019, By Bernadettelove this product it leaves my teeth clean and shiny. its a little messy but cleans off easily without any stains. will definitely be buying more in the future.28/10/2019, By MelissaHave only used it twice so far but my teeth feel nice and clean. The taste takes some getting used to - tastes like bicarb but not unpleasant. As some other reviews have mentioned the charcoal makes it quite messy, it does however wipe away easily. Love the container - no plastic!27/10/2019, By KateI love how much whiter my teeth are looking and they are not nearly as sensitive. It does take some getting used to in terms of taste and texture, I just wish it was a bit more minty. It’s a good “starter” product if you are going plastic free.21/10/2019, By JoThis product makes my teeth and mouth feel ultra clean but I have had difficulty opening and closing the jar I wonder if a biodegradable tube would be easier to use ...14/10/2019, By AnnalizeGreat product, my whole family loves it. My mouth feels amazingly clean and fresh everytime. Just be careful not to get any moisture in the product.12/10/2019, By CatIm not enjoying using this product at all. The feeling in my mouth is terrible, and the mess left after and during use is awful.04/10/2019, By NickyLove it, I have been buying this product for a few months and I have noticed some are fresher than others though.03/10/2019, By BiancaLove that my teeth are noticeably whiter. Also has a nice, subtle minty taste to it. Can be a bit messy, but the results are totally worth it, bonus it’s good for the environment!27/09/2019, By BiancaIts day 3 since i started using this and I can literally see and feel the difference in my teeth. The taste is underwhelming at first but then i thought about the checmicals my brain was used to from regular toothpaste. Im definately switching to this product. I was thinking of a refill option once the tub is done, Is that possible?20/09/2019, By NadiaI'm happy with this toothpaste. If I could change one thing though, it would be to have a slightly more minty taste.18/09/2019, By PAbsolutely love this toothpaste! Personally has whitened my teeth08/09/2019, By SimoneI love this product! It was one of my first plastic free changes and I am in love. It doesn't taste super strong and minty which is really nice because it leaves your mouth feeling a lot cleaner. It can make a mess in the basin when you rinse but you can just wash it away. The only downside I have found is that it leaves my teeth feeling sensitive. I spoke to my dentist and she says it's because of the graininess of the activated charcoal and bicarbonate of soda so now I alternate a sensitive toothpaste with this one now but I'm still completely in love with it!08/09/2019, By SimoneI love this product! It was one of my first plastic free changes and I am in love. It doesn't taste super strong and minty which is really nice because it leaves your mouth feeling a lot cleaner. It can make a mess in the basin when you rinse but you can just wash it away. The only downside I have found is that it leaves my teeth feeling sensitive. I spoke to my dentist and she says it's because of the graininess of the activated charcoal and bicarbonate of soda so now I alternate a sensitive toothpaste with this one now but I'm still completely in love with it!02/09/2019, By ChristineI am very happy with this toothpaste, it is the third toothpaste I have tried from FTN, this leaves my teeth feeling the cleanest and the packaging is more eco friendly, this is the one I'll be sticking with.20/08/2019, By LizeIf you have a bad coffee breath, then this will take that bad taste out your mount! It is awesome, the colour takes some time to get use to, but overall I will definitely buy it again!13/08/2019, By LeireI was surprised at first how clean it feels and how white it leaves my teeth. It takes time to get use to the black (I have to wipe my basin and rinse very well), but it works nicely. The only thing is that it's a bit expensive.13/08/2019, By JulieI tried making my own coconut oil + baking soda toothpaste which tasted horrible so it prepared me for the taste of this one which really isn't bad. I added extra peppermint oil to give it a stronger fragrance.
It may look like it stains but not if you wipe it off immediately on the basin with warm water (it has oil in it so cold water isn't that effective) and you need to spit as low as possible to avoid a mess.
Otherwise, I'm happy with how it cleans my teeth :)05/08/2019, By TiffanyIt certainly feels like it cleans and leaves a great taste afterwards. I did almost give my husband a heart attack as I brushed in front of him without warning about the charcoal. Love that it is plastic free but it leaves a residue in the basin so it's a tad messy. I have started using it in the shower too.04/08/2019, By MeaganWhitens teeth like no other product I have ever used! Really makes your teeth feel clean, I use it once a day in the shower cause it is pretty messy and then in the mornings I use earth sap peppermint and baking soda. Teeth are in great condition, I am so happy!26/07/2019, By PreshaIt is solid but the charcoal bits can be running and messy in the basin and can stain. I think it works but I wish it had more of a fresh minty flavour. The bicarb can also be a bit overpowering. Still does the job though.23/07/2019, By ChanéThe taste takes some getting used to! I looove how environmentally friendly this product is though.23/07/2019, By PiaI love that this is natural and good for your teeth/gums etc - but hard as I've tried to get used to the charcoal and the weird taste, I don't think I'll be getting another one once I've soldiered my way through this pot. Plus, the mess - yikes! I much prefer the other natural options by the Apothecary... so I'll be going that route next time I think!22/07/2019, By TdkA great feeling on my teeth and definitely feel like I'm not putting anything harmful into my mouth (or down the drain!). Plastic free packaging and all natural.
My only con is that the charcoal droplets go EVERYWHERE if you brush your teeth like a heathen (like me). Might try a charcoal free version next time ;)20/07/2019, By GenevieveOnly been using a few days, but love it!18/07/2019, By GabiAmazing toothpaste, ordered in March and only halfway through the pot now in July. Takes a bit of getting used to as it doesn't have the same texture or taste like 'normal' taste but well worth it.16/07/2019, By Tegs22Great product! Literally keeos your teeth clean all day - no build up! Tastes funky, but so worth it.16/07/2019, By JusticeIt is the best toothpaste ever.15/07/2019, By SunshineIm hooked...wont ever use any other toothpaste again... its natural and wonderful and my mouth is fresh and healthy!11/07/2019, By NokhanyoFrom the first time I used the toothpaste I experienced swelling and itching but dismissed it because I'm one of those people who aren't sensitive to anything and have never had an allergic reaction to anything ever. Through a process of elimination I came to the conclusion that I may just be allergic to the clove oil in this. It's only been a few days since I started using this and it sounds shifty but it's literally the only new thing I've introduced to my regimen. I'm not trying to scare anyone away from using the procuct though because other than the taste it's actually great and in the few days I've been using it I actually noticed a difference in the condition of my teeth. I'm putting this up as a warning for anyone else who may experience something similar who also believes themselves immune. Would still highly recommend it09/07/2019, By NokhanyoRegret....that is all I felt when I first used this. That bicarb taste is so awful that I actually gagged but guess what? My teeth, tongue and gums were thanking me so for their sake I'll soldier on and hopefully, in time, I'll get used to the taste.08/07/2019, By SamanthaI wasn't sure what to expect, my teeth are definitely cleaner and beginning to whiten. As far as taste goes if you like that fresh minty taste then don't expect it from this product. I used my another natural brand after a few days just to experiment and found it left my mouth feeling "burny" if I can explain it that way.
It's taken a while to get used to but I don't think I'd be able to use another toothpaste now and you can control the amount you use very easily.20/06/2019, By DeeTaste is not how everyone explained it. If you are looking for that burning minty feel after a brush. this is not for you. since starting with this i have not been able to brush with any other toothpaste. i like the fact that it is in a jar and not a plastic tube. it also allows you to control how much you put on your toothbrush without worrying about wasting. my teeth feel so clean. its just a bit messy so just be careful of your clothes.18/06/2019, By GeorgiaHave to agree that the taste is not the best, however it leaves your teeth feeling super clean and healthy. Would definitely recommend.No chemicals thats what I love about it - back to the olden days - taste takes a bit of time to get use too - but love that its so natural and clean and one doesnt need a lot on the toothbrush07/06/2019, By AlLove this product no chemicals in your mouth07/06/2019, By JoanieIt takes a bit of getting used to the black in mouth and spit, but it feels natural and I love the texture and properties behind this product. The only negative would be that one has to rinse and spit a LOT take get the mouth clean of the blackness! But I love the product for all the other reasons and will definitely continue with it.05/06/2019, By Thirusha NaickMy new favorite toothpaste31/05/2019, By BiancaI love this toothpaste so much, it doesnt taste very good but it does whiten your teeth so I dont care about the taste I've been using this for a few weeks and can definitely see a big difference.31/05/2019, By CazI am really enjoying this product, my teeth feel clean, it is messy but manageable, it doesn't have an over powering mint taste and I do feel it has whitened my teeth so wow thank you, thank you.20/05/2019, By NellieSI bought this for a friend. He had been using Miswak toothpaste for a long while now, but was eager to try a charcoal toothpaste. He has sensitive teeth and gums. Well, he loves the product. His teeth and gums have been relieved of that sensitivity and though he doesn't see a whitening effect as yet, he will continue with the product.18/05/2019, By DeeThis is the first time I'm using a natural toothpaste and I'm very pleasantly surprised! No going back to commercially produced ones! My teeth feel clean and my mouth feels fresh. I would give 5 stars if there was a little more mint!07/05/2019, By YolandeGreat product, the charcoal just makes a bit of a mess when I brush. Only used it a few times but my teeth are starting to get whiter. Just watch out for your clothes if you brush.03/05/2019, By NicolaThis toothpaste tastes very good - it has a subtle peppermint flavour. I have been using this product for a few weeks and I can tell it will last me very long so it is worth the penny. My teeth and gums feel great too!02/05/2019, By SandraIm really battling with the activated charcoal, it makes a real mess and is putting me off which is a shame because I have really gotten to like the toothpaste and am determined to use it because it is cruelty free and plastic free. I had previously used this product before they added the charcoal and I would really like to get more of that.26/04/2019, By LizanneCleans nicely, no residue, works well with a bamboo toothbrush. This toothpaste tastes nice, cleans well and I love that it's not in a tube. This will become a staple for sure.25/04/2019, By ChloeMouth is feeling clean, fresh and teeth are looking pearly white. Takes a couple brushes to get used to the black. But I LOVE it!24/04/2019, By JudithWhitens teeth, just have to get used to the taste, as it is quite pungent.23/04/2019, By SanksMakes my teeth feel very clean and fresh. Love the glass jar packaging. Takes some time to get used to the flavour and the colour. This is not normal toothpaste, don't expect the same thing!17/04/2019, By BiancaWe have tried a few Charcoal toothpaste brands and this is by far the worst tasting one. It is the only one we've found to leave a really bad aftertaste. The packaging is great, (which is why we decided to try this one, no plastic!) but unfortunately for us, the toothpaste was not :(14/04/2019, By LauraLove the packaging and the toothpaste. However, it leaves small residues of charcoal in between my teeth even after rinsing with water! So I have to brush over over all my teeth again with a clean toothbrush12/04/2019, By GiselleI’ve purchased this toothpaste, because it has a recyclable and sustainable glass container. The taste and smell is great, but the activated charcoal wasn’t the best idea. It stains everything. My bathroom basin is stained and most of my white shirts are stained. Cool idea is theory, but didn’t work so well in practice.08/04/2019, By LenoreGreat product01/04/2019, By RudiFeels good. A lot less plaque build up when using this product. My teeth feel less sensitive as well thanks to this product and a change in my diet. Love the glass jar packaging!!!28/03/2019, By CatherineLove it. My teeth look and feel great. I Keep it in the shower with my bamboo toothbrush to reduce mess.26/03/2019, By CourtneyAt first I didn't like it because of the consistency of the bentonite clay and it had a strange taste, but I gave it a chance and I'm really happy I did. It keeps my breath fresh and has made my teeth slightly whiter over the past month. Also it's plastic free!25/03/2019, By KathrynGreat alternative for toothpaste in tubes21/03/2019, By BenThis is going to help with whitening my teeth. It leaves my mouth and teeth feeling sparkling clean. I initially thought this was pricey but was happy to see that this should last me a few months.13/03/2019, By StellaOne of my absolute favourite purchases!! It leaves my teeth feeling amazingly clean, and also has very impressive whitening power. Awesome!13/03/2019, By KristleeI quite like this toothpaste, definitely my favourite so far out of the plastic free toothpastes. Taste isn't bad at all, and cleans teeth that they feel smooth and squeaky clean.11/03/2019, By lizeOkay! so I had a fright the firs time I used it, but I do not think I will go back to any other toothpaste ever again! It takes away bad breath and your teeth are the pinnacle of squeaky clean!07/03/2019, By Paulalove this product, both me and my daughter use it and will not revert back to normal tooth paste. Our teeth are whiter and feel clean. Yes its a bit messy but you get use to it.06/03/2019, By UvinaWhen I reviewed this toothpaste, a lot of people had so much to say about the taste, but to be honest its not as bad as I anticipated and it’s a miracle worker. I highly recommend because I honestly started seeing its effectiveness within a period of 2 days,no joke.04/03/2019, By SianI actually prefer the taste to the overly sweet conventional toothpastes. It leaves my teeth feeling quite clean.
Unfortunately the charcoal is quite messy and it takes a lot of rinsing and brushing just to get the toothpaste out your mouth. I'd recommend brushing your teeth in the shower, as it could get on your clothes, and using another toothpaste when you want to avoid mess.18/02/2019, By CatTeeI quite enjoy the taste (I see others don't), now that I'm used to it. It isn't ever going to taste like conventional toothpaste, because it has baking soda and charcoal etc. in it. There are products similar to that, if that's what you're after. However, after a week, I actually love the taste.
I use it at night because it does take a bit of time to get the black out of your mouth / sink.02/02/2019, By NixMy daughter complained that the taste is awful. Time will determine if it does what it claims.02/02/2019, By MeganThis product tastes really horrible... But my teeth have never felt so clean and it leaves you with a light minty smell afterwards.25/01/2019, By LizeI liked the previous version of this toothpaste (without the charcoal). This one I will not buy again, it is messy and difficult to rinse out once you have finished brushing.21/01/2019, By NatashaI like this product, I have even used it as a scrub/ exfoliator once or twice, makes your skin pretty smooth and soft! Takes a bit longer to wash the basin after using it (as a toothpaste or a scrub) but it is worth it.21/01/2019, By TashCleans well, tastes okay. The one without activated charcoal was waaay better.28/12/2018, By I’m a fanReally makes my teeth feel squeaky clean! I don’t find the saltiness overbearing. The black paste does take some getting used to but I’m loving this product!12/12/2018, By LucyPlastic free and delicious11/12/2018, By TriciaI was looking for a vegan and cruelty free toothpaste so I was very happy to find this. It is really value for money too05/12/2018, By ChantieThis is my new favourite toothpaste. It leaves my teeth white and clean. It takes a while getting used to, but after a while you don't taste the difference, to commercial toothpaste, anymore.18/10/2018, By MarietteI see it fetches some positive reviews but for me it tasted like clay and had a horrible after taste. For the price,you would expect it to taste better and have a better after taste in the mouth.28/09/2018, By SandraIm not keen on the taste to be sure and find it really salty, but I am determined to make it work for me as I am working hard at illuminating plastic from my home. I would prefer a minty taste, as I am conditioned to expect my toothpaste to be minty and actually like the freshness it leaves you with. I was little sad that it is not cruelty free (I honestly cannot afford the cruelty free varieties) and am hoping that an affordable cruelty free option will soon be available.25/09/2018, By BeepThe toohpaste does seem to work and make my teeth feel very clean, but my mouth tastes (and presumably smells) gross afterwards, so I would recommend also getting (plastic packaging free) mouth wash.22/08/2018, By AngeliqueStand out product that cleans well and has no ugly chemicals. Feel good everyday when you aren't poisoning yourself both morning and night!15/08/2018, By Claire MichelleThe taste is really intense. Almost fishy due to the saltiness from the bicarb. Not ideal for freshening up your breath. However, I'm beginning to get used to it. Although, I would appreciate it if it were a more pleasant experience from the get go.
That being said, it leaves my teeth feeling very clean. Going to finish the pot and see if I can handle the taste before re-ordering.29/07/2018, By SaraMy favorite toothpaste. My teeth are whiter now.29/07/2018, By FranWe are all conditioned to THINK that our toothpaste must be minty, and so it takes a little time to really get used to this quite different taste. But it does leave my mouth clean and I know that the cinnamon is excellent treatment for the gums. I'm very satisfied and will recommend it to anyone.26/06/2018, By AdélThe taste definitely takes some getting used to, but it's worth the wait. Apart from the fact that I'm not sending toothpaste squeezies to landfill anymore, I actually prefer this over normal toothpaste. Used normal toothpaste again recently and I hated that it makes food taste bad afterward, dries out my lips, and overwhelms everything with peppermint. I feel that I brush more thoroughly with Back 2 Nature because I'm not distracted by all the foam. Teeth feel perfectly clean. It helps to spread the toothpaste around in your mouth as soon as you start brushing otherwise it sort of disappears.19/06/2018, By JodiIf you've had braces, the consistency is similar to the teeth mold they use (this is back in 2005, I don't know what they use now). Brush your teeth first and try to not let it touch your tongue and then at the end brush your gums and tongue and rinse. This works for me and has made the transition quite easy. I genuinely love this product and support the brand.04/06/2018, By LizeIf you're used to minty sweetened toothpaste from the supermarket this may put you off at first - it is very salty. I see a lot of people are commenting on the taste - you get used to it eventually, and it is a really great toothpaste. My dentist is happy!17/04/2018, By DebbieThe taste and texture can take some getting used to...I love the fact that all the ingredients are natural and good for you, and I have to admit that the taste has grown on me.
I love the eco-friendly jar it comes in and judging by how my husband and I have used this toothpaste, I am expecting it to last quite a while, which is a bonus.19/01/2018, By LynI do not like this product. The only thing going for it is the container.
In water starved Western Cape, it needs so much water to get the "mud" off the brush and the spatula - not water friendly at all.
The taste takes getting used to, as well as the mud like appearance, it does not taste good, but I will admit that it cleans well.17/11/2017, By LarissaI absolutely love this toothpaste! For the first time in a long time after brushing, my mouth actually feels clean. Its an added bonus that none of the nasty stuff found in commercial toothpastes, is in this natural toothpaste.14/11/2017, By NadiaThis is taking me a bit of time to get used to. It's not minty enough so you don't feel like you've really brushed your teeth. Not crazed over the taste or texture but I'm sure it's much better for you than normal toothpastes and it doesn't have fluoride which I like. I think the jar will last a long time so I'm looking forward to seeing if there are any noticeable differences to my teeth in the long term.28/10/2017, By GabyDefinite points for not being sold in a plastic container and not containing any chemicals or preservatives, but product-wise could be better. It takes some getting used to the taste and doesn't clean the teeth as well unless you really take your time, it could also use a bit more mintyness.26/10/2017, By HidayahAmazing product,anything beneficial for you wont have a nice taste...will def buy again25/10/2017, By Maxinegreat product11/09/2017, By SaraI love this toothpaste. It keeps my teeth so white without being abrasive and I just love the consistency and flavor. I love making my own toothpaste and I have tried endless combinations but this is just right. Everything you want in a toothpaste: remineralizing, very cleansing but it's still such natural ingredients that if you eat it it could actually en good for you.
And the favorite part: zero waste packaging.
My favorite!08/09/2017, By Yu-tingNot bad, just need to get use to the taste and texture of the product which is quite different from what most are use to. Personally, it is not minty enough04/09/2017, By BusisiweLove this tooth paste, the taste and texture take some getting used to, but after brushing my teeth in the morning it feels like i bought a brand new mouth!01/09/2017, By ErileneI am satisfied. Refreshing. Happy that it's in a glass jar.11/08/2017, By RobynI really like this toothpaste. It's not foamy or very minty but it leaves my mouth feeling very clean.09/08/2017, By MartiOf the list that I tried this was the best and still not worth more than 3 out of 5. It is in a glass jar - a plus. It has a refreshing smell. It is however far to clay like and made me feel nauseous when using it.08/07/2017, By SusanEasy to use and works very well. I love it16/06/2017, By PriyaI decided to try this after reading about how bad commercial toothpaste is for you. The taste takes some getting used too. However the results are amazing. Definitely a must try.28/04/2017, By SusieIt's natural and does the job. Teeth are nice and clean, but I can feel the coconut oil (greasy) and the salt/bicarb taste is too much of an onslaught on my poor tastebuds. This toothpaste takes some courage!27/02/2017, By ChanelThe colour of the toothpaste may have scared me a little once receiving it, but the results have been amazing so far and it;s def got a fresh, natural taste : )
