brushing up again
My family has been very happy since we switched to natural toothpaste and mouthwash. I'm glad to not be using the dangerous ingredients in some of the mainstream products. One issue we still have, however, is that we can't all agree on our favorite flavors and brands.
As you can imagine, I was excited to receive some samples from The Natural Dentist. We tried their toothpaste and the mouthwash. We all liked it! I am thrilled to have a product line we can all agree on.
The Natural Dentist uses only natural ingredients—herbal extracts and natural flavors, sweeteners and colors. They do not contain alcohol or SLS. They do have the ADA seal for cavity prevention and are PETA certified cruelty-free.
If you'll remember, one of my pet peeves in the dental-care aisle is wasteful, unrecyclable packaging. The Natural Dentist products passed my test because they print with soy inks, use #1 plastic bottles (almost everywhere accepts those), and also sell toothpaste without a box to reduce packaging. Plus, the products are manufactured in the USA.
My teeth are sparkling green!
