Back to Basics with Zero Basics

In my quest to transition to a healthier lifestyle I continue to be on the lookout for products that are organic, less toxic to my body as well as to the environment and affordable as well. That’s why I made it a point to attend the VegFest Pilipinas 2017 event to get vegan products and eat vegan food too.

My newest personal care basics from Zero Basics.

One of the vendors that I had my eye on was Zero Basics and I particularly wanted to try out their deodorant and their toothpaste and tooth powder. I am glad that I did because I am loving them! I have tried out other products and I was disappointed but these exceeded expectations.

Zero Basics Deodorant
I was most excited to try this because I had tried other products from other brands and I was not really satisfied with their performance but this one performed amazingly well.

Here’s the product description:

All-natural Deodorant from Zero Basics.

The picture might be blurry so here's the description:

“The natural deodorant that works! Special blend of 100% pure and therapeutic-grade essential oils that naturally give 24-hour protection from sweat and odor.”

The product description alone had me falling in love with the potential of this product and now I am completely head over heels. Not only did I not stink the whole day, application was convenient too! Just shake the bottle, spray 4-6 times on your arm pits and let dry.

It might take a bit of time to let the product dry on your under arms but in the meantime, you can indulge in the clean smell and look forward to a stink-free armpits day.

Zero Basics Deodorant 250ml (Php250) is an effective product that I will definitely have on my personal care kit from now on.

Zero Basics Black Toothpaste
From my experience, organic and all-natural toothpaste can be very expensive and not all of them are truly all-natural. Zero Basics Black Toothpaste 190g (Php180) is all-natural and although it is black, it whitens teeth on the first application.

Zero Basics Black Toothpaste and Tooth Powder in jars.

How natural is it? Here’s the ingredient list and product description:

“Advanced charcoal powder + baking soda to naturally whiten teeth and keep mouth cleaner for longer.”

So it’s colored black but it whitens teeth and it does so effectively. With other organic toothpastes, my teeth do whiten but it doesn’t remove stubborn stains. I have tried using baking soda before but I felt it too abrasive and I didn’t really like the taste. This one diluted the taste of baking soda and the graininess felt much smaller than regular baking soda.

The whole paste had an oily texture which I actually appreciated because this saved me time from oil pulling when I’m in a hurry. It might not taste great for first-time users who are used to the minty flavor and feel of commercial toothpastes but the effects are worth it.

Since this came in a jar, I transferred some of it to a smaller container with a wide mouth for better access.

Zero Basics Remineralizing Tooth Powder
I have had to see the dentist for tooth cavities so I wanted a product that would help me maintain healthier teeth. I didn’t know what to look for actually so when I found this product online, I knew I had to try it.

Add these or replace your old toothpaste with these products.

Here’s the ingredient list and product description:

“Mineral-rich ingredients to restore the strength of the enamel and maintain healthy teeth and gums.”

Zero Basics Remineralizing Tooth Powder 110g (Php180) is just the product I was looking for! I knew it from the product description and I feel that it does work.

I was thinking that I would need to go to the dentist again because I had a tooth that was sensitive to cold and heat. After using this product, the sensitivity subsided and after a few days of continued use, it completely disappeared. I can now eat and drink without feeling any sudden pain.

Just like the toothpaste I have also transferred some of this to a container that I can easily access for everyday use or bring with me while traveling.

Take note that I alternate using the toothpaste in the morning and the tooth powder in the evening. This may seem overkill but I am very satisfied with this combination. These two will be my cavity-fighting and teeth-whitening duo from now on.

Zero Waste
With Zero Basics products, you do go back to basics because all their products are contained in glass bottles or jars which you can recycle. There are plastic parts like in the case of the spray bottle but these can also be recycled.

Since all their ingredients are natural and cruelty-free, not only are you helping the environment but the animals too. Most importantly, you are helping your body reduce or remove toxins that are usually in commercial personal care products.

Last but not the least, they are affordable and they are a local brand so we are also giving back to our country’s economy in the long run. That looks like a triple win to me!
