On average a person who lives to the age of 70 and who brushes their teeth twice a day for 70 years, will use oral care products over 50 000 times. Impressive number if you counting your investment growth but in regard to the highly absorbent area that your mouth is, a lifetime of conventionally produced toothpaste laden with bizarre chemicals and additives can expose your entire body to substantial quantities of harmful, artificial substances.
I had not even considered this fact until I attended the product launch of South African manufactured Olgani Herbal Refreshing Toothpaste and was exposed to the nourishing and healthy alternative to dental hygiene. Part of our product education included eating our way through the toothpastes ingredients to prove that what we put in our mouths to clean our teeth should be nourishing and replenishing to our bodies as well.
Standard toothpastes can contain glycerine ( petro-chemical derivative), fluoride, parabens, foaming agents, titanium dioxide, abrasive agents, sweeteners and dyes. This makes Olgani such a compelling alternative to ‘normal’ toothpaste. It contains only natural, edible ingredients and specially selected medicinal plants in its unique recipe. The “Nutrire B” is a propriety blend of rice flour, sesame oil and sea salt that constitutes the main component of the Herbal Refreshing Toothpaste and is combined with pure herbal extracts and essential oils (known for their beneficial health properties).
“There is absolutely nothing artificial or harmful in our products, which are grounded in the core belief that dental care should, “nourish, not stress the body,” says Olga who has created this range of amazing oral care products.
Olgani toothpaste is 100% natural, totally free of all artificial, non-beneficial ingredients, is safe if swallowed and ensures healthy daily dental care.
Ingredient Focus: Nutrire B
Research shows that substances like glycerin, sorbitol, calcium carbonate and silica can cause weakening of tooth enamel. To avoid it and to help to strengthen the tooth enamel NutrireB has been formulated.
It is a blend of mineral rich rice flour, sea salt and sesame oil that is non-abrasive yet gently cleaning. This forms the based for Olgani toothpaste and is a totally unique base for oral hygiene.

The high proportion of active ingredients in Olgani toothpaste produce a slightly intense taste that will change once you mouth gets used to the flavour. I have been using the toothpaste for over two weeks now and my gums look healthier than ever and I have begun to enjoy the salty, minty taste that leaves my mouth refreshed yet without the ‘burn’ I used to get from using conventional toothpastes.
Directions for use
