Botot Toothpaste


by Passa Chattra

Botot toothpaste is considered the "world's first toothpaste." Dr. Julien Botot invented this toothpaste in 1755 for King Louis XV of France. The formula lacks any of those nasty synthetic ingredients or colors. Instead it contains special natural ingredients like gillyflower, ginger, and cinnamon that give your mouth a slight warming feeling while promoting circulation in your gums. It tastes and feels like the first couple of chews of Big Red gum.

Having the tube sitting on the sink serves as one of those intimate details in the bathroom that suggest indulgence, antiquity and foreign lands. Available for $8 at Unica Home
