No animal by-products or testing
Why on earth does a company that goes to the trouble of soy based inks on its packaging to appear natural, think it needed to have a foaming agent at all, when did we learn that was a necessary part of toothpaste? The chemical in question still creates carcinogenic by-products and is listed as "wash off applications only". So putting it on the most absorbent mucous membranes in your body is pure madness. If I didn't live in NZ I'd be posting it back.
There are some good things about this anise toothpaste: it's free of SLS, fluoride, parabens, propylene glycol, PEGs, saccharin and artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners and doesn't contain mint, which makes it suitable for people suffering from acid reflux, heartburn and gastritis, because mint may aggravate these conditions, but it does contain sodium lauroyl sarcosinate and hydrated silica. Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate is a synthetic surfactant and foaming, emulsifying and viscosity controlling agent, which is suspected to be an environmental toxin, allergen and irritant. Hydrated silica is a pretty harsh abrasive which may harm and damage the enamel and prevent its remineralization. Glycerin is a safe ingredient but sometimes may interfere with the remineralization of the tooth enamel. The other ingredients are not that bad, though: calcium carbonate and sodium chloride are relatively mild abrasives, aloe vera juice is known for soothing and healing sore gums, reducing redness and inflammation, relieving the symptoms of gingivitis and parodontosis, calcium glycerophosphate is a safe antiplaque agent, carrageenan (natural, not its degraded and chemically processed variety, poligeenan) is a natural thickener made from seaweed, bisabol ol, anise oil, soap bark, white tea leaf, pomegranate, cranberry, grape seed and ginger root extracts are great for preventing and reducing plaque and tartar build-up, killing harmful tooth decay-causing bacteria and stimulating the growth of tooth-protective, non-acidic bacteria, removing stains, strengthening the enamel, protecting against caries, fighting halitosis and prom oting fresh breath. But overall, there are better and safer mint-free toothpastes out there.
Favourite toothpaste for my children

As this toothpaste contains no flurides, my children are allowed to use my toothpaste and they love it! It is their favourite.

Not the same product anymore after changes of the package and the formula

Log time user of this product. I have the old and the new Creme de Anise, and compared to the older product and formula, this new one has only a hint of Anise compared to the older one. Also it's sickening sweet and the taste is not good anymore. Nature's Gate ruined the Creme de Anise toothpaste with this product reform. Hope they will return the old formula.
