Yes, you can! Here’s why we brush our teeth with Tooth Suds:
Promoting remineralization with an alkaline PH: In an acidic environment, teeth begin to demineralize, which puts them at risk for cavities. In a more alkaline environment (like that of Tooth Suds), teeth can become stronger and remineralize!
Naturally clean teeth with no added sweeteners, no added glycerin: A clean mouth is a key to good oral hygiene. Soap is a great cleaner, and Tooth Suds is formulated to clean teeth without tasting like soap. With no added glycerine or sweeteners there’s no residue left after you finish brushing. And, our charcoal bar also helps reduce staining from our beloved sips of coffee and tea.
No more goopy toothpaste tubes, messy powders, or fiddly shreds: Since it’s a solid bar, you don’t need a plastic container to hold it, it travels well, doesn’t spill like tooth powders or shreds, and (while it’s a fun childhood memory for some) you can’t squeeze it all over the bathroom sink.

Once you get your first bar, you’ll soon be doing a happy dance every time you brush.
No, there is no lye in our soap. However, all true soap is made through the saponification of oils with lye—either sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide. Once saponified none of the lye remains, and the oils are turned into soap. You can read more how soap is made, cured, and cared for in these articles:
Yes, this is a bar of soap, formulated for washing your mouth and teeth. It’s a very gentle formula that makes a wonderful facial bar too. Oh, and did we mention that it’s a great travel companion? No TSA liquid limits, nothing to spill, and nothing to goop out of tube an onto your clothing!
Our soaps are packaged in organic cotton bags (made in the USA). You can reuse them as tea bags (please wash them first though!), or soap sacks. To use as a soap sack, place the small ends of soap bars into the sack until you have a small stash. Then, wash with the soap sack as a washcloth. They also make great garden soap sacks (just hang from the spigot).
Tooth suds, conditioner bars, facial powers, shower steamer 2 tablets, and sample bars are packaged in glassine bags which are 100% recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.
Our labels are printed on recycled label stock.
Herbal salves are packaged in a reusable and recyclable metal tin… and they’re made in the USA.
Our hair tea is packaged in biodegradable cello bags made from wood cellulose fibers sourced with sustainable forestry principles, certified biodegradable, compostable and made carbon zero. Each bag meets ASTM D6400, EN13432 standards for CA and other states.
Our soapbox boxes are made from 100% recycled content, are 100% recyclable, and are made in the USA!
We ship with sustainable materials too! Smaller orders are shipped in sustainable paper padded envelopes (made from recycled materials, recyclable & naturally biodegradable). Larger orders ship in USPS flat rate packages that meet Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification standards. And, they are fully recyclable (including the padded shipping mailers which are made from #4 recyclable plastic).
Let’s start with what is DOESN’T taste like — washing out mouth out with soap. That’s right, it doesn’t taste like soap. About 1% of our customers report that they have a slight “soapy” taste the first few times they try it, but they don’t notice it after using it for a few brushes.
Tooth Suds are not “flavored” with artificial flavors, but they do contain essential oils (at safe dermal usage rates), giving them a mild flavor.
The original bar includes sweet orange and peppermint essential oils.
Tooth Suds is a bar of soap. This means you can use it to wash your skin (or hair) too! If you don’t like brushing with it, enjoy a super silky and gentle wash with the bar. (We use it as our go-to travel bar… one bar to pack for all of our washing needs on the go!)
For safety and hygiene reason we cannot accept returns for our all-natural skincare products. However, if something doesn’t seem right when you receive your order, please let us know right away. Your satisfaction is incredibly important to us, and we truly believe that you’ll love our products.
