Is it normal for the consistency of the paste to change?
Yes, this is absolutely normal. The natural toothpaste won’t not go bad, but it may dry out if left out for an extended period. If you find your toothpaste has dried up, or it’s a bit more concentrate than you’d like, simply add some water to the glass jar and stir with a metal or wooden applicator. Start by adding only a few drops and continue to add small amounts until your preferred toothpaste consistency has been reached.
Be sure to place the metal lid back on the glass jar, this should prevent the toothpaste from drying out.
Is Nelson Naturals Toothpaste suitable for sensitive teeth?
Yes, in fact many people have found they experience a decline in teeth sensitivity after using the natural product.
How do you use toothpaste in a glass jar?
Using toothpaste packaged in a glass jar is a slightly different procedure than using your standard tubed version. The key: dip, brush, rinse and smile! The best way to use Nelson Naturals glass jar toothpaste is to simple dip your brush into the jar — unlike your standard toothpaste, you don’t need to apply as much to the brush. A little goes a long way! If the thought of putting your brush back into the jar is unappealing, you can opt to use a wooden applicator to dip and spread the paste onto your toothbrush.
Be sure to place the metal lid back on the glass jar to prevent the toothpaste from drying out.
Concerned about germs?
You may be thinking “if I continue to dip the brush into the jar, won’t that spread germs?” This is a great question. And the answer is no. Nelson Naturals unique Colloidal Silver formula kills germs. If you’re still not convinced you can always use a wooden applicator to dip and spread.
