I've been using the Peppermint & Wintergreen toothpaste for just over a year now and it cleans just as well, if not better, than normal toothpaste! It's a strong flavour to start with but you get used to it quickly and it leaves your mouth feeling so fresh! I love that it's zero waste too and you can reuse the jars. I went to the dentist for a check-up after using truthpaste for nearly a year and was curious to see if there were any changes to my dental health - nope! My dental health hadn't deteriorated in any way, so if you're on the fence about purchasing truthpaste, I say go for it and you won't be disappointed!
