Creamy snuff is a paste consisting of tobacco, clove oil, glycerin, spearmint, menthol, and camphor, and sold in a toothpaste tube. According to the U.S NIH-sponsored Smokeless Tobacco Fact Sheet, [1] the manufacturer recommends letting the paste linger in your mouth before rinsing." It is packaged in tubes similar to those used for toothpaste.[2] The product is addictive.[3] A similar product, known as gul or gadakhu, is made with tobacco powder and molasses, and used mainly by women in Central and South Asia as a dentifrice.[1]
