About Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste

Himalaya Toothpaste Review

It’s come to light recently that commercial toothpastes are laden with chemicals and ingredients that are bad for your body. A good alternative? Toothpastes made of organic ingredients, of course.

One of the notable organic toothpastes in the market is definitely the Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste range. Made with 100% organic certified ingredients, it is also free of the common chemicals found in commercial toothpastes, making it safe to use for just about everyone. There are two distinct categories within the range: Complete Care, and Whitening, depending on your needs.

But is the Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste is really as effective as it sounds? We asked our editor, as well as 20 Daily Vanity readers, to put it to the test and share with us their honest opinions.

Editor’s Review on Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste

Himalaya Toothpaste Editors Review

To be totally honest, I don’t usually give much thought to the toothpaste that I use. I simply go for whatever is most convenient or affordable on the shelves of supermarkets, picking them up whenever I run out while replenishing other groceries.

This is until I found out about the number of questionable chemicals that can actually be found in regular toothpaste. And considering how toothpaste goes into our mouths, the thought that I’ve been exposing myself to so much chemicals is pretty nasty.

I’m surprised to know that there are botanical ones around, and they aren’t even that hard to find – Himalaya carries them. I’ve previously already tried their masks, cleansers, and moisturisers, so I’m very familiar with it and trust it.

I’ve been using the Himalaya Botanique Complete Care toothpaste. My first impression was the herbal taste that it has – compared to regular ones that usually overpower with menthol. In terms of usage, it works exactly like any other toothpaste out there – it foams well despite not containing any SLS, and feels good on the teeth.

However, one thing that really differentiates the Himalaya Botanique toothpaste that I notice is the long duration of time it was able to keep my breath fresh. Typically, with regular toothpaste, I would not be able to taste the freshness in breath after less than an hour. But if I don’t consume any food, the Himalaya Botanique toothpaste can keep my breath fresh for hours. This makes it a great product to pop in my makeup kit in case I need to freshen up my breath after lunch before any important meeting.

Besides better breath, I also notice that the toothpaste cleans well and is able to get rid of any plaque easily. I also notice that my teeth look cleaner and brighter than before – which is definitely a plus point.

Natasha Cayco: “The Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste has made quite a significant visible whitening effect on my teeth even though I’ve only used it for two weeks. It also leaves my breath feeling fresh for hours! However, I have noticed that this may not be suitable for people with sensitive teeth as it leaves a stinging feeling after using the toothpaste.”

  • Improvement in teeth shade: 4/5
  • Helps remove dental plaque effectively: 4/5
  • Leaves fresh breath after use: 5/5

Yuppie Nguyen: “This toothpaste made my teeth appear visibly whiter in shade even after the first use! With continuous use, I noticed a significant improvement in my teeth shade as well as in my breath, which is exactly what I looking for from a toothpaste. The only con is that I don’t see improvement in terms of plaque removal? But perhaps it can only be seen after sustained use. Overall, this is a very good toothpaste for daily use and I totally recommend it to everyone.”

Chan Huishan: “Initially I was quite skeptical of using a natural toothpaste, as I thought it won’t be able to deliver the taste of my usual toothpaste (minty taste) that I’m used to be using. Surprisingly, it does, and it even has the creamy feel and foaming action of a regular toothpaste! Love the refreshing feel without the strong, almost burning sensation found in other brands toothpaste. It is also not bitter and doesn’t leave any after taste.”
