Tom’s of Maine natural toothpaste has earned my respect this week. After a long search for a natural toothpaste that cleaned my teeth well and did not taste like tar, Tom’s natural toothpaste ended my search! For the last year I have tried different natural toothpastes only to be disappointed. Many natural toothpastes taste horrible (so bad I could not even threaten my kids to get them to brush their teeth with it) or the taste was ok, but my mouth never felt truly clean.
Tom’s of Maine has several different natural toothpastes with ingredients derived from plants and minerals. Tom’s does not use any sweeteners, preservatives, colors, or flavors and their products are biodegradable. Tom’s also produces in an environmentally sensitive manufacturing facility and uses earth-friendly recycled and recyclable packaging. How is that for natural and green?
My family just finished our tubes of Children’s Fluoride-Free Toothpaste and Sensitive Toothpaste. I am very please with our findings! Four of my children brushed their teeth two-three times daily and never complained; not even one time! My daughters actually asked to brush their teeth more often! My husband and I both used the Sensitive toothpaste and were very happy with the flavor, texture and clean mouth feeling! My family has decided to keep Tom’s of Maine toothpastes around for many more years!
Ok, now the scoop on the toothpastes!
The children’s fluoride-free toothpaste is made with the delicious taste of real strawberries, so kids enjoy the tastes. The toothpastes uses calcium and silica to gently clean, hydrated silica for stain removal and fruit extracts for flavor. The pastes is also gluten free and does not contain casein or caseinate, MSG, wheat, oats, barley, rye, malt, spelt, kamut, HPP, or HVP. None of their flavor oils are grain-distilled.
The natural flavorings and oils make the toothpaste less sweet compared to other brands who use artificial preservatives or saccharin.
They also have a fluoride toothpaste for children, if you wish to use it. I personally do not like fluoride toothpastes for my kids, so I do not have to worry if they swallow to much when brushing.
Overall, my family loves Tom’s toothpastes! If your looking for a natural tooth paste for yourself or the family, Tom’s offers several types of toothpastes to fit everyone! For more info on Tom’s toothpastes or to locate a retailer near you visit http://www.tomsofmaine.com
