Testing: Waken

Eco friendly, oral care...

Waken creates sustainable oral care products.

“I felt that mouthcare was failing us all in terms of sustainability and with my experience in the skincare industry I thought that we must be able to do something better. I hope you enjoy Waken as much as we have enjoyed developing it.” Simon Duffy, Founder of Waken

About Waken

Waken was born in 2019 and since then has had a mission to create mouthcare products that are both effective and eco-friendly.

The brand set out to make effective products that have sustainability at their heart. They have already worked hard to make their mouthwashes carbon neutral but don't plan on stopping there! The company aim to continuously revisit and improve each of their products to ensure they are helping the planet all they can.

Waken want to encourage us with there slogan 'Don't just clean. Care'.

Waken Products

Here are some the current products Waken are able to offer:

  • Lip Balm

  • Toothpaste

  • Mouthwash

  • Dental Floss

  • Toothpaste Tablets

Each of the products that Waken creates is Vegan - Cruelty-Free and made with natural flavours.

You can also be sure that each product is free from:

  • SLS

The toothpaste tubes are made from recycled and endlessly recyclable aluminium with there carton counterparts made using FSC certified cardboard.

Each mouthwash bottle is created using 100% post consumer recycled plastic. Currently the mouthwash's that Waken create is carbon neutral!

The company have managed to reduce their carbon footprint by investing in conservation projects. The investments that they are currently making are going towards a conservation project in Acre State, Brazil.

My Experience

I have tried a few eco-friendly toothpaste options over on my @eco.lexi account but struggled to find a sustainable mouthwash option until now. I was lucky to stumble across Waken online and thought I'd give it a try.

First of all, it looks so much more appealing and dare I say 'bougie' compared to plastic competitor products! The flavour that I opted for was Peppermint as I'm not a massive fan of 'mint heat' and although it still gives a slight burn after each use it's tolerable and actually tastes really good! It leaves my breath smelling fresh which is all I could ask for.

Of course I also had to have the matching aluminium cup as it's adorable! Both the mouthwash and cup look so much better on my sink so it's great to know that they are better for the planet too. Highly recommend giving this one a try!
