What’s in toothpaste? The ingredients of toothpaste tablets!

What’s in toothpaste?

Twice a day, you put it in your mouth, scrub along your teeth with it and spit it out again. But what is toothpaste made of? What causes it to rid your teeth of plaque? According to the back of the packaging, toothpaste contains a list of words that are bound to score a lot of points in a game of scrabble. According to the front, it mostly contains good things that keep your teeth healthy (fluoride, proteins) and if possible no junk (parabens, sls). And don’t forget the fresh taste. Very briefly, a toothpaste contains abrasive, surfactant and usually fluoride. In addition, a range of agents are added to take better care of your teeth, whiten them and make the product last longer.

The ingredients of toothpaste tablets

Microcrystalline cellulose

Cellulose is made from wood fibres and ensures that toothpaste tablets form a nice tablet and are not a loose powder. Thus, they ensure that you use exactly the right amount of toothpaste every time and its texture is absolutely fine.


All those good things in toothpaste taste terrible. That’s why some xylitol has been added for a slightly sweeter taste, which makes brushing a lot nicer.


Like xylitol, erythritol also provides a better taste and thus a better brushing experience.

Natural mint flavour

What’s in toothpaste that gives you fresh breath? Right, mint flavour! Together with the above-mentioned sweeteners, the natural mint flavour completes the taste sensation of the toothpaste tablets.

Active carbon

This substance is ideal for polishing your teeth and also makes them whiter, so double the benefit of this ingredient! This ingredient can be found in the charcoal toothpaste tablets.


Hydroxyapatite in toothpaste helps repair minor damage in your enamel. It fills the open channels so that pain stimuli cannot get to your tooth nerve. So you can continue to enjoy hot or cold food and drinks, without a nasty twinge of pain in your mouth. This ingredient is in our fluoride-free toothpaste tablets.

Sodium fluoride

Also called sodium fluoride, this is the well-known fluorine that is so good for your teeth. It slows down the breakdown of your tooth enamel, which means your teeth are better protected against acid attacks and thus you are less likely to get cavities.

Calcium carbonate

You probably know calcium carbonate from the old days, from the blackboard or as pavement chalk. This chalk or chalk serves as an abrasive. It scrapes dirt from your teeth, which has a cleaning and polishing effect, without affecting your tooth enamel.

Sodium cocoyl isethionate

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is a foaming agent. Foam is not necessarily necessary to clean properly, but it does give a nice fresh and clean feeling.

Sodium carbonate

Sodium carbonate you may also know as baking soda or baking soda and is a cleaning agent.

What is not in toothpaste tablets?

Toothpaste ingredients are more extensive than those of toothpaste tablets. In fact, such a tube often contains sulphates, parabens, SLS and microplastics, which are actually completely unnecessary to clean your mouth. There must also be preservatives in a tube because it is a liquid product. Toothpaste tablets are corky and therefore do not need preservatives.

Frequently asked questions

Toothpaste contains a surfactant or detergent for a clean mouth, an abrasive to scrub off the dirt properly while polishing your teeth, and fluoride to strengthen your tooth enamel. Because this doesn't taste very good, a fresh mint flavour is often added.

Toothpaste tablets contain only what is necessary, i.e. detergent, abrasive, fluoride and substances for a nice and fresh taste. To keep the tablets together and easy to dose, cellulose is used. And unfortunately, this leaves no room for junk like SLS, microplastics, sulphates and parabens. Preservatives are also unnecessary in tablets.
