Bite was founded in 2017 by Lindsay McCormick with the intention of creating teeth whitening toothpaste that is better for the environment. This was not only intended for the toothpaste itself, but also for the packaging. McCormick worked to use natural ingredients to create a toothpaste bit or “bite” that is chewable and functions the same way normal toothpaste does. For those seeking to maintain clean and white teeth while saving the environment, this is a company worth looking into.

The Good

  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Whitening Products
  • Package Discounts
  • Advantages

Environmentally Friendly

Bite has worked tirelessly to ensure that the products it produces and the packaging that they are sold in are not damaging to the environment. One of its main goals is to ensure that plastic tubes are not continually being thrown into landfills where they will never be able to biodegrade. Bite is packaged in glass bottles which can be recycled and refilled. Envelopes sent by bite to customers are recyclable as are the boxes that the bottles are delivered in. If you are looking for an environmentally friendly product and product packaging, you are looking in the right place.

Whitening Products

Bite has developed two types of ‘bits’ which are currently being sold on the market. The mint and activated charcoal bits are made with the following ingredients:

  • Xylitol — repels cavity-causing bacteria and acts as a natural sweetener
  • Erythritol — prevents cavity-causing bacteria from establishing camp on your teeth
  • Natural Mint Flavor — helps make sure that your breath stays clean and fresh and helps the product taste good
  • Calcium Carbonate — acts as a mild abrasive helping to clean and polish your teeth
  • Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate — made from coconut oil and helps your bites foam up like a regular toothpaste
  • Sodium Bicarbonate — helps to balance the PH levels in your mouth
  • Activated Charcoal — helps to detoxify and take the stains on the surface of your teeth
  • Guar Gum — acts as a binding agent helping to keep the bits together

Package Discounts

If you are interested in purchasing this product, it will be most cost-effective to do so in a package deal. If you decide to try both of the flavors, you can get one bottle of each for a total of $20. This is less expensive than purchasing two single bottles. If you are interested in a subscription to continually receive this product, you can save 38 percent and have a bottle sent to you every four months for just $7.50 per month. This is the most cost-effective way to purchase Bite Toothpaste Bits.

Advantages

Some of the advantages of this companys’ product include the following:

  • You know exactly how much you have left
  • The bottle is travel size
  • It is made with natural ingredients
  • It is not in a plastic tube that can harm the environment

The Bad

  • Pricing
  • Fluoride

Pricing

Purchasing a toothpaste should not be an expensive ordeal. The challenge with using Bite toothpaste is that it is almost four times more expensive than regular generic toothpastes. For those who are not overly concerned about what is in the toothpaste and the effect that the plastic tubes will have on the environment, it may be difficult to be convinced to use a product that is significantly more money with the same purpose.

Fluoride

The purpose of fluoride in water and in toothpaste is to help prevent cavities. If you are looking to strengthen your teeth, the vast majority of experts would advise that you invest in a toothpaste that provides you with fluoride. Bite does not include fluoride in its products, discouraging some people from using the products. If you are looking for a toothpaste with fluoride in it, you will need to look elsewhere.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking to buy a new toothpaste and want to purchase a product that will help you be more environmentally friendly, Bite may be a great product for you. If you travel often and are worried about traveling with liquids etc, this product also may prove advantageous as you travel as it is a solid that can be packed in any of your luggage. Using this product will help you to have the perfect amount of toothpaste each time you brush. For those worried about spending too much on their toothpaste, this is probably not the product for you, as it is not inexpensive. If you are unsure whether you will like this product, we advise only purchasing one bottle to try it out.
