brushing with coconut oil toothpaste for cleaner, moisturized mouths

hello team member
by connie gregson , friendly head of r+d at hello products

putting coconut oil in toothpaste results in similar benefits to oil pulling, but as you can imagine it’s a lot more convenient and pleasant. when you brush, the coconut oil attracts bacteria. then when you spit out your toothpaste, out goes the bacteria. easy-peasy. coconut oil is also a natural moisturizer and helps to keep your mouth moist.

and if all that wasn’t enough, coconut oil is also a natural source of glycerin. glycerin enhances mouthfeel so that you enjoy the texture of your toothpaste and the sensation in your mouth. we think it’s preeeeetty safe to say that most brushers prefer toothpaste that isn’t grainy, sticky, gummy, or drying.

if you’re looking for a toothpaste that incorporates coconut oil, we recommend you choose friendly and look for one that sources thoughtfully. after all, this stuff is going into your mouth. at hello, we only use non-gmo coconut oil in our toothpastes and mouthwashes. that’s a shameless plug, but we give a spit about what goes into our products, and into your mouth.
