Description

Ela Mint is unlike any other toothpaste, by design. It trades fluoride for nano-hydroxyapatite (n-Ha), an evolution in dentistry that’s been a gold standard in Japan for over 40-years. 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. We complement this powerful ingredient with soothing aloe vera, bacteria-fighting xylitol, antioxidant-rich green tea and refreshing mint. It’s our way to address the “silent epidemic” in healthcare.

Lesley - 6 days ago
The best toothpaste I have tried so far. I have a chipped front tooth that has been glued back on multiple times. Every time it’s reattached it looks worse and it’s just a matter time till I have to replace it with a cap. Here is a before and after of using Boka and the difference it made for my damaged tooth. My teeth are no longer sensitive and feel stronger/whiter.

Easy to Apply

5 out of 5 stars

GO - 11 days ago, Verified purchaser
Easy to apply to toothbrush. You can control the amount easily (small bead). Attaches to Brush too...no fumbling. Smooth texture allows even application to all teeth. I tried using a Calcium Supplement with Hydroxyapatite (powder applied to brush) and it was almost unbearable. This Toothpaste tastes subtle compared to most products maybe because of the Hypoxy ingredient. You can brush without overbearing mintiness. It is well worth the cost.

This toothpaste is amazing for sensitive teeth. For someone who has a very acidic stomach, this toothpaste is the only one I’ve tried that actually helps. I can actually see the great difference in my enamel. The reviews are all right on this toothpaste.

MDee - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
I have a lot of health problems that include a tendency to vom*t easily and regular toothpaste always triggered it. This doesn't. It's literally improving my oral and esophageal health. It doesn't foam up and make me gag. I LOVE that it doesn't need to be rinsed out and my mouth doesn't feel soapy, just clean. I used to be legitimately scared to brush my teeth every day and now i can do twice a day like I'm supposed to. Miracle product. I suspect they can price it cheaper than $12 bc i lived in japan and toothpaste was not this expensive haha but I'll gladly pay it. Please try to keep it in stock, Target! <3

Was looking for a toothpaste without fluoride and wanted it to have hydroxyapatite. This stuff is great. Still has foaming texture and the flavor is not too strong.

switched to Boka about 6 months ago. The flavor and "texture" is great. With hydroxyapatite, I don't have to worry about harmful fluoride for my family. I do think it helps with sensitivity as well. My 4-year-old loves it too. Because of the price tag, she and I use it once a day in conjunction with another natural paste to lower our monthly cost but still receive the benefits.

Great alternative to fluoride

5 out of 5 stars
Would recommend
Kittyinthecity - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
If you’ve done your research on fluoride, you know that it’s not the best option when it comes to protecting your teeth. Boka contains a key ingredient that has been used in Japan for over years. NHa is the mineral that makes up enamel, and is used to remineralize teeth. The taste is great. Not too minty for those that are sensitive to the burn, but you also feel like it’s cleaning your teeth. Some people might have to get used to the lack of foaming but, so far I love it, have used it for 6 mos now and won’t use anything else.
