Parodontax is a lovely pink paste from England, by way of Belgium. It has become my new favorite paste. The salty flavor, similar to a baking soda paste, is refreshing without being sweet. (I get so sick of really sweet American toothpastes.) And I appreciate its flouride. The manufacturer's website states that it: "contains natural herbs such as rathania, chamomile, echinacea, mirra, mint and salvia."

It's made by GlaxoSmithKline, a giant global pharmaceutical corporation. However, it's not a global brand for the mega corporation. The only place to get it in the US is from obscure importers like Smallflower.

The package is completely in Dutch and French. The only English is "Parodontax is a registered trademark of the GlaxoSmithKline group of companies."

Helpful information from the inside of the box:

Plaque is an important cause of irritated gums.

- Healthy gums don't bleed while brushing
- Irritation of the gums is primarily caused by bacteria in plaque
- If plaque isn't removed daily, this can harden and become tartar
- Visit a dentist regularly for advice and a check-up

Healthy Gums Are The Base For Healthy Teeth

What makes Parodontax so unique?

Parodontax contains a unique highly concentrated formula with 70% active components  for teeth and gums. Brushing with parodontax effectively removes plaque. Plaque is an important cause of irritated gums.

The highly concentrated active formula makes for an intense taste. Once you get used to it, you don't want anything else!

:/ 1-7 days: getting used to salty flavour
:) 8-14 days : positive habit
:D 15+ days : familiar flavour

Special thanks to my sister, who kindly sent it to me. Extra thanks go to my brother-in-law, who translated the helpful info into English.

Had no idea there was such a thing as a toothpaste museum! My dentists recommended Parodontax, she said it would help get rid of gingivitis, which I got from using other bad toothpastes. Been using this for 2 years now and it really helps! I live in Suriname (South America) and it costs about $5.17 (a lot more expensive then the regular Golgate.
