Did you know that 1,500,000,000 toothpaste tubes are sent to landfill every year, and they live there for over 500 years? Yeah, we were shook too. However, thanks to one (totally epic and legendary) Australian company, it’s not all doom and gloom! Get ready, ‘cause we’re about to ROCC your world. Well, maybe just your bathroom. 

ROCC Naturals is a Melbourne-based natural toothpaste company that is as conscious about the environment as it is for the health of your teeth. ROCC is completely vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free, and their toothpaste is made from naturally-derived ingredients for naturally whiter teeth. 

ROCC’s founder, Prue Rocchi, started in the midst of the COVID19 pandemic, and she hasn’t looked back since. Prue is somewhat of a fitness fanatic, but she wanted to be more conscious about what she puts into her body, as well as what it looks like. So what’d she do? She created a sustainable toothpaste company that is as good for the planet as it is for its people, of course. 

ROCC Naturals is totally committed to sustainability, and perhaps the most telling sign of this is the fact that their toothpaste tubes are biodegradable. Yep, they’re completely biodegradable, and not only will they break down in landfill in as little as six years but they won’t turn into microplastics in the process. Don’t believe us? Ask the third party that ROCC got to test and verify this process. Good, huh.

As for the ingredients, ROCC packs their toothpaste not only with stuff that’s good for your teeth, but stuff that’s good for you as well. B12, mint, green tea and coconut oil are just a taster (hehe) of the kinds of vitamins and minerals you will find in a single tube of ROCC toothpaste. No hidden nasties, naughty chemicals, preservatives, sulphates, bleaches or parabens here!

Another note on their sustainability commitment: the ROCC toothpaste caps and boxes are recyclable; the shipping boxes they use are not only recyclable, but they’re also 100% made from recycled material, and the paper-stock is sourced sustainably; and their shelf-ready trays are totally recyclable, too. As for the bamboo toothbrushes, the handle is biodegradable, and the ROCC team is working on the biodegradability of the bristles, too. Progress not perfection, right?

We know what you might be thinking: “ugh, another natural toothpaste that doesn’t work.” We’re sorry to inform you, but in this scenario, you are wrong. The ROCC toothpaste is results-driven in its formulation; whitened teeth, superior oral health and a clean, minty feeling are just a few of the positive outcomes you can expect from this toothpaste. 

ROCC perfectly intertwines sustainability with impeccable oral health care, and we are 100% here for it. They came, they saw a gap in the market, and they damn-well filled it. So, if you’ve been on the hunt for a natural toothpaste that not only works for the environment but works for your teeth as well, then give ROCC Naturals a try.

Behind the Brand

“I refused to start this brand without it being sustainable. For an industry centred on cleaning, it has a dirty reputation environmentally”.

Prue Rocchi

Prue Rocchi of ROCC Naturals

What made you start ROCC Naturals?

I’ve forever been obsessed with all things wellness and design. After having many jobs in the health marketing sector, it was time to do my own business.

While pregnant, I switched from a chemical loaded paste (AKA Colgate) to a natural. The product choice was so limited in Australia. But so many beautiful products overseas. I saw a gap in the market and went for it (while having a newborn and mid pandemic).

 

Do you have a morning routine? If so what is it you do to set yourself up for the day ahead?

I wake an hour before my daughter. It’s an espresso and 45 minutes of getting active – a class, a run, strength, walk. It charges my mind and body for the day.

 

What’s the biggest barrier you’ve found to succeeding as a socially conscious business?

The higher cost of goods to be a socially conscious brand. It’s hard to enter a very dominated industry with a higher RRP. You’ve just got to trust that people value the same thing as you, and will make the purchase.

Within the ethical fashion community, there’s a big question that we ask which is ‘who made my clothes?’. In the scope of ROCC Naturals, who made your products? Can you tell us a bit about them?

We manufacture out of New Zealand. Our manufacturer has been operating for over 20 years. They have a long list of excellent products and client base.

 

Why did you pick the ingredients you have chosen to work with?

I refused to start this brand without it being sustainable. For an industry centred on cleaning, it has a dirty reputation environmentally.

We choose a biodegradable tube because we thought it was one of the best ways to dispose of the packaging, and easy for the consumer to follow. We didn’t want a complicated process.

 

Best piece of advice you have ever received?

If it was easy, someone would have already done it.

What’s next for you and ROCC Naturals?

We’ve just launched!

The next 12 months is about building awareness in market, expanding our retail partners and adding new products to our range!

 

One book and/or documentary everyone should read/watch? Why?

I’m more of a podcast person. For anyone starting out, listen to Lady Brains Podcast.

Are there any other Movers & Shakers out there in your world that you think people should know about?

Gosh so many. And so many on this website!
