This toothpaste is tough. It feels tough to spit black stuff into the sink! You naturally have a healthy respect for this toothpaste because it can ruin your outfit.
But it rewards you in many ways; two of which are financially (in savings), and empowering oneself by taking responsibility. And you get to minimise the use of chemical additives (often used in brand toothpastes) and by re-using the toothpaste jar you save on the plastic impact in the environment.
So get tough. Make it yourself.
