Mix the phase A ingredients in a bowl.
A light gel is formed from the ingredients of phase B: the guar gum is added to the water, in a motion, and mixed until the gum is completely dispersed. The solution is left to rest for approximately 5 minutes for gel formation.
Phase A is added to the phase B gel, and mixed well until a homogeneous paste is obtained. A pestle can also be used to facilitate homogenization.
Add the phase C ingredients to the homogeneous paste and mix thoroughly. The resulting paste is transferred to the dedicated container.
The result is classic toothpaste, with a fresh aroma and medium abrasiveness. It does not foam because the formula does not contain foaming agents, but has an optimal texture. It is not sweet, it has a specific refreshing taste given by peppermint essential oil. It is a simple formula, easy to prepare.
