This is just a short review of a toothpaste from Portugal - Couto Pasta Dentifrica.

[Image: 41W0wYMBHtL._SL500_AA300_.jpg]

This toothpaste is really rather nice. It has a strong mint flavour and it creates a nice fresh feeling when you use it.

It doesn't separate itself from the organic pack in any way, however. It does not contain fluoride, which may be an issue for some people, but if you drink tap water (like I do), then that's not an issue. I also don't like the presence of saccharin in this toothpaste. I don't need my dental products to be sweetened and this one is.

The main issue with this toothpaste is the price - $6.00 - 7.50 for a 2 oz tube. That's pretty high for something that really doesn't separate itself from the other toothpastes. For about the same price you can get 6 oz of J/A/S/O/N Sea Fresh toothpaste which pretty much tastes and works the same as this one.

Ingredients: Water, Tricalcium phosphate, Glycerin, Potassium Chlorate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium C12-18 Alkyl Sulfate, Paraffinum Liquidum, Sodium Saccharin, Metha Piperita, Menthol, Anethol, Thymol, Eugenol.

My take on this - skip this toothpaste. It's nice, but I'd spend my money on other natural products.

A great review. This toothpaste is produced in Portugal, and it was created in the city of Oporto 80 years ago.
It is one of the most traditional and historic Portuguese products, and part of the collective memory of the Portuguese people.

Some vintage adds:

And this TV add made history on the Portuguese TV, many decades ago, and it is still remembered today:

"No need for words! It's a Portuguese artist, and he uses "Pasta Couto"...!" Laughing1

But Yohan, I bet, with the J/A/S/O/N Sea Fresh toothpaste you couldn't swing a chair between your teeth, could you?

Great review!

For a 60gr. tube I have paid between 1.50 € and 2 € in physical stores...
It is, from a year ago, my favorite toothpaste Rolleyes

I'd buy it again at that price (2 Euro). The price I have to pay here makes it an expensive toothpaste.

This toothpaste is growing on me. I like it best of the toothpastes I've used.

A little of this goes a long way. It leaves my mouth feeling clean and fresh. Germ fighting? plaque defense? We'll have to wait until the end of the year and my next dentist appointment.

Sounds like a nice toothpaste but having no fluoride is an issue with me.

I like to buy it once in a while, just to change my routine a bit. The price around here helps Smile
I don't think this is a very sweet toothpaste, but I'm with you on the saccharin part. Some toothpastes are ultra-sweet, and I'm starting to dislike that. One of my current favorites is the Theramed Pro Nature, which the last time I checked, was not sweetened.
