Elgydium®(the leading toothpaste in France for the last three decades), used to be available only in Europe and in boutique pharmacies. Fans picked it up in France, in caseloads. You’d also get a sample if you traveled first class on British Airways.
Now, you don’t have to fly anywhere to get Elgydium® products –who wants to get on a plane these days? The company (as SANTÉ active Inc., a U.S. subsidiary of Laboratoires Piere Fabre, France) has made Elgydium® available in the United States and online.
Maybe choosing a toothbrush and toothpaste seems boring, but if you get products you like, you’ll not only use them instead of “forgetting” to brush, you’ll brush longer and better. Good teeth are a must-have, so the Advice Sisters tried two of their toothpastes: Elgydium® Anti-Cavity Tootpaste $6.00 3.5 oz. and Elgydium® Whitening Toothpaste $6.99 3.5 oz. Both come in clean-looking, white tubes with dark blue and grey accents. The pastes are surprisingly silky and pleasant on the tongue and teeth –not gritty or harsh at all. The taste and feel is tingly, fresh and minty in your mouth. The Whitening Toothpaste contains micro-pulverized sodium-bicarbonate–Baking Soda is it’s more plebian name. But this type is five times smaller than typical sodium bicarbonate. This allows it to penetrate into even the tiniest fissures in the enamel of your teeth, to really ensure thorough a cleaning and whitening. Some whitening toothpastes can be pretty harsh on teeth and gums, but this one is gentle enough for everyday use. The Anti Cavity Toothpaste features a high-grade fluoride to help prevent cavities.
What do you need to go along with your luxe toothpaste? A toothbrush, of course! Elgydium® has four ergonomically designed Toothbrushes $3.99/each: Creation Toothbrush; Whitening Toothbrush; Supreme Toothbrush and Luminous Toothbrush. You might wonder which of the four is right for you–it could be confusing, but you can quickly figure out what features you like the most and choose that way. Each comes with a plastic bristle cover to keep it clean –and it’s great for travel. All are available in soft and medium bristles.
