Nelson Naturals Colloidal Silver Toothpaste
The bath and beauty industry is notorious for using harsh synthetic chemicals and generating tons of packaging waste in an effort to make products more convenient and attractive to consumers. Shampoos, lotions, deodorants, toothpastes and so on; all come enclosed in various forms of plastic and other synthetic materials, much of which is not readily recyclable. More than 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry alone. But some companies are heroically pioneering change, seeking out more practical, functional, and creative alternatives to environmentally-destructive plastics. Nelson Naturals began as a quest to create a high-quality toothpaste from natural ingredients, but has also expanded efforts to include more sustainable packaging solutions. Touted as “the original plastic-free toothpaste company,” Nelson Naturals has been making their products without plastic since 2012, while trailblazing in the Zero-Waste movement. Their Mineralized Toothpaste is packaged in recyclable glass jars, and uses simple, high quality ingredients like colloidal silver and hardwood xylitol to produce a unique toothpaste that is healthier, more eco-friendly, and just as effective (if not better) as traditional toothpastes. Their best selling “classic” toothpaste formula, the Citrus Spice Blend—with hints of mint, cinnamon, citrus, rosemary and clove, is sure to reinvent the way you brush. And Nelson Naturals pledges 5% of all profits to supporting animal shelters and various human organizations.
