This Week's Answer
Boka's Ela Mint Toothpaste is different from other kinds of toothpaste by design as it is formulated with nano-hydroxyapatite (n-Ha) instead of fluoride. According to the company, n-Ha makes up the primary foundation of teeth and bones, meaning it’s naturally restorative and helpful in reducing sensitivity. Plus, it’s 100% biocompatible and non-toxic.
Boka complements this ingredient with soothing aloe vera, bacteria-fighting xylitol, antioxidant-rich green tea and refreshing mint.
