Wait…what? I’d never have expected a teeth whitener from cosmetic company Tarte, let alone (necessarily) a vegan one. But I guess it’s, er, an extension of lip gloss…? A smile IS the best accessory. . .
Whatever the reason, they are offering a limited edition “Pearly Girl” pen whitener for those of you who might be interested. The ingredients are particularly novel, though of course they have subtracted some of those lesser desirable ones:
Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, glycerin, PEG-400, hydrogen peroxide, sodium hydroxide, disodium EDTA, potassium nitrate, mentha pulegium, sodium saccharin.
formulated without parabens, formulated without mineral oil, formulated without phthalates, formulated without sodium lauryl sulfates, formulated without gluten
Still, I feel like if I wanted a whitener myself, I’d hit up Crest or Colgate. Not for nothing, but they’ve been in that game a lot longer – even if the ingredients are the same (or close), Tarte doesn’t strike me (personally) as my go to for pearly whites.
That said, if it works, and it’s convenient to snag at the time…more power to you.
