[Review] Elgydium Whitening & Sensitive Toothpaste

Posted on by Anouschka in Product Reviews, Reviews


I received the Elgydium Whitening and Sensitive toothpastes to review. 


I have to be upfront here and tell you that for the last 10 years, I have ONLY used a herbal toothpaste from Europe that is more salty than sweet.  My main concern with testing a toothpaste was that it would be sweet and frothy like most regular types in SA. 


I tried the whitening toothpaste first, as I don’t really have sensitive teeth and hey – who wouldn’t want whiter teeth!


I’m very relieved to be able to revert that Elgydium is not super sweet at all.  I have been happily using it, and it isn’t very foamy either. I was very pleasantly surprised. I know that this is a very personal requirement, but I just can’t bear to brush my teeth with a sugary, foamy substance.


I haven’t been using it long enough to see the whitening effects yet (update to follow), but I did notice immediately that it removed some plague build up that had been bugging me. My teeth felt very clean, and I’ve convinced my hubby to give it a try as well.


I received this product from Rubybox to try, so here’s some more specific product info for you to read,

“Whitening Toothpaste – R59.95 – 75ml

Elgydium Whitening effectively removes stains caused by coffee, tobacco and food. Elgydium Whitening toothpaste is a highly effective stain removal formulation that is gentle on your tooth’s enamel. Its patented, micro-pulverised Sodium Bicarbonate is super fine, enabling it to reach into the smallest fissures and effectively remove stains. Elgydium Whitening is proven to prolong whiteness of teeth after professional whitening treatments. Also contains Chlorhexidine – proven to reduce dental plague build-up.


Sensitive Toothpaste (Gel with Fluorinol) – R59.95 – 75ml

Elgydium Sensitive is specifically formulated to relieve pain associated with dental hypersensitivity. The patented active ingredient, Fluorinol (fluoride), adheres to the tooth 5 times faster than any other fluorides. It is extra-gentle to protect sensitive gums and teeth. It rapidly and firmly binds onto tooth enamel within the first minute of brushing offering effective protection. It closes the tubuli and stops nerve impulses that create discomfort. Elgydium Sensitive has a refreshing mint flavour.”
