Mainly its intense flavours, thick texture and its cult status in the menswear sphere.

The yardstick for measuring the success of a menswear brand is whether it’s stocked at Mr Porter, the so-called ‘men’s style destination’. And Marivs is there, appearing first on its toothpaste page.

Its Italian producers market it as the haute cuisine of toothpaste, encase it in lush retro packaging to suggest a more traditional manufacture, and position it at all the right Florentine trade shows.

It will definitely add a touch of class to your bathroom and is available in seven flavours. The most popular being Marvis Classic Strong Mint, which has an intense, long lasting taste.

Originally popular in the 1970s with smokers for its whitening properties, Marvis still claims to excel in giving you an extraordinarily white smile.

How Marvis toothpaste works

Marvis Liquorice Mint Toothpaste, 85 ml

Marvis toothpaste aims to deliver a protected white smile and long lasting fresh breath as well as preventing tooth decay and plaque build up. So how does it do this?

Like most toothpastes Marvis contains abrasives to ‘exfoliate’ your teeth, lift stains and remove plaque which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Marvis uses silica and aluminium hydroxide for this purpose. These ingredients are fairly standard – though experts now consider silica to be quite a harsh abrasive. Which brings us to our next point.

Using abrasives to ‘scrub’ teeth de-mineralises tooth enamel. So toothpastes contain ingredients, usually fluoride, to encourage remineralisation and avoid cavities. But Marvis is fluoride free.

Teeth naturally remineralise over time and Marvis deploys sodium citrate to help this process by neutralising acid in the mouth. But using a fairly harsh abrasive that is not offset by the addition fluoride could lead to enamel damage if you’re a vigorous brusher!

Marvis toothpaste uses titanium dioxide to whiten your smile. It’s a white pigment with a high refractive index, which basically means it makes your teeth look whiter for a limited time. However, its use in toothpaste is beginning to be questioned.

Lastly, Marvis use Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) as a foaming and cleaning agent. SLS is linked to irritation and mouth ulcers.

All this said, Marvis has many favourable reviews on Amazon particularly with reference to its intense flavours and the long lasting fresh feel it generates.

It isn’t that the toothpaste doesn’t work and it certainly seems to be enjoyable to use. It’s just that it does the job using ingredients that are either fairly commonplace or, in some cases, questionable in terms of safety. This is despite the fact that Marvis boast they are sensitive to issues around ingredients and are cruelty and gluten free, and vegan.

Marvis toothpaste conclusion

Marvis Rambas Toothpaste 75 ml

This is an expensive toothpaste which has achieved popularity, especially in the menswear market. It has many favourable reviews on Amazon, particularly regarding the intense flavours, thick texture and fresh feeling it generates.  

However, the ingredients it contains are fairly run-of-the-mill and in some cases (eg SLS) are now being called into question.

If you want a product that will titivate your bathroom and titillate your taste buds – and you are prepared to splash the cash – go for it. You may become one of Marvis’ very many satisfied customers. You can even accessorize with a Marvis Toothpaste Squeezer!

  1. In the article it says that it is fluoride free but in the images of the tubes they say it’s a fluoride toothpaste, and after further looking it says on the ingredients too.
