Treat Your Teeth
Artisanal Oral Care Products
Selahatin are a boutique brand making luxurious, beautifully flavoured toothpastes and mouthwashes.
The flavours have more in common with the perfume industry than mainstream dental products, making cleaning your teeth a treat rather than a chore.
The recyclable aluminium tubes and glass bottles compliment a modern, stylish bathroom and are lovely enough to give as a gift to someone that appreciates the finer things.
At 25, Selahatin's founder Kristoffer Vural suffered a stroke that left him paralysed for a year. In addition to a loss of mobility, his stroke resulted in a stranger change: his sense of smell and taste heightened. Brushing his teeth became nearly unbearable - too synthetic, chemical, strong.
Vural also developed synaesthesia, which meant he experienced taste and smell as colours - in a world which felt heavy and grey, this was a joy.
He decided to make the mundane act of tooth-brushing - which he had come to dread in hospital - an experience to relish. He saw a gap in the market for oral care that was great to use and attractive on the bathroom shelves.
The brand has been nominated in the Wallpaper Design Awards, named “one of the best grooming brands in the world” by GQ, called “the world’s most sophisticated toothpaste brand” by Monocle Magazine and founder Kristoffer Vural has since been named one of the most innovative entrepreneurs in the world by Monocle Magazine.
