Why fluoride is key
Dentists will never recommend fluoride free toothpaste. Why?
Fluoride is clinically proven to prevent tooth decay and strengthen enamel. Without it, your teeth won’t be effectively protected.
That’s why PAIST® contains fluoride. It’s essential for healthy teeth.
Metals can be recycled infinitely back into high-quality new metal, without any loss of physical or chemical properties.
To recycle PAIST®, place the lid in your general waste and the tube in your mixed recycling bin.
Metals are retrieved at the recycling centre via different extraction methods.

Is your toothpaste safe for children?
PAIST is appropriate for children who are 7 years old and above. It is important, however, to ensure that children are under adult supervision to prevent swallowing of toothpaste or any risk of choking from the screw top lid.
Does your toothpaste help with gingivitis?
If you have recently been diagnosed with gingivitis by a Dentist, there is no need to worry! The good news is that this condition can be easily treated. PAIST contains fluoride and other ingredients that help eliminate the plaque and bacteria responsible for causing gingivitis. Additionally, it is crucial to brush your teeth twice daily using the correct technique. Using dental floss is also recommended in order to clean the areas between your teeth that brushing alone cannot reach.
How is PAIST different from other toothpaste brands?
Most people don’t have a clue what’s in their toothpaste. We were surprised to find that artificial ingredients, preservatives, flavours and abrasive agents were the norm.
We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that our toothpaste contains only the highest quality ingredients that are actually good for your teeth. Every ingredient has been selected to serve a purpose.
On top of this, our toothpaste is vegan and natural certified from reputable 3rd party organisations.
In other words, we don’t cut any corners.
Where is your toothpaste made?
Our toothpaste is made right here in the UK 🇬🇧.
How do you recycle PAIST?
Metals can be endlessly recycled without any loss of physical or chemical properties.
Our tube is made from aluminium which should be placed in your recycling bin. Aluminium is the easiest metal to recycle, using only 5% of the energy and emissions needed to make it from bauxite (aluminium ore).
Our zinc alloy cap should be disposed of in the general waste bin. In the UK, 95% of general waste is incinerated to generate electricity and metals are extracted from the ash for recycling.
Is your toothpaste suitable for vegans?
In fact, our toothpaste is externally validated by one of the UK’s most reputable vegan societies.
Does PAIST contain SLS, artificial flavours or preservatives?
We use a plant-based foaming agent instead of SLS. Our flavours are extracted from natural mint or spearmint leaves and we don’t use any preservatives.
