Marvis Toothpaste from Italy

Marvis is one of the most luxurious toothpastes available today.

You might be wondering what makes a toothpaste luxurious. There are several factors:

Elegant packagingSubtle smooth tasteFewer ingredients than many toothpastes (less is more these days)Expensive price of entryDelivered in small portions, like caviar Marvis does not miss a single point.
I have the pleasure of owning and using both the "Aquatic Mint" and "Whitening Mint" flavors.
Aquatic Mint is my favorite of the two. It ranks among the best tasting toothpastes of all time. It's super smooth, clean, refreshing and worth keeping in my mouth longer than usual.
Whitening Mint is stronger. I have not used it long enough to report on its whitening effects. My guess is that my teeth are so far gone from years of coffee drinking that they are beyond help.
Both toothpastes are smooth pure white in color.
The boxes feature translations in nine different languages. Clearly, Marvis has a reach far beyond Italy…

Interestingly, it seems to be packaged for family use, judging by the smiling family photo on both the tube and box.

Dabur Red came in a large box containing a 200 g tube (7.2 oz) and a bonus translucent purple toothbrush - labeled Binaca. Americans will know Bianca as a brand of breath spray. In India, it's a toothpaste brand, manufactured by Dabur, the company that made this red toothpaste. Or I should say Red toothpaste.

Our friends that curated a post on Binaca over at Wikipedia also identify Binaca as an undergarment brand that is marketed in India and owned by Kiran Textiles.

As you can see, the paste has a light brick-red color - quite a bit less saturated than the packaging seems to indicate. But that's good - the package's bright color red would not seem as healthy as the more natura…
