iHerb Customer Reviews
This is a recent addition to the Tom's of Maine toothpaste line. In short, SLS is found in almost all toothpastes, including many natural brands such as Tom's of Maine. SLS is often found to be an irritant to many (in the mouth, the primary concern is that it may contribute to the development of canker sores). It is used in toothpaste predominantly because it is what is responsible for the foaming and consistency you're used to while brushing your teeth. With this SLS-free formulation, it took some getting used to, since there is the noticeable lack of foaming while brushing your teeth, and despite the peppermint flavor of the paste, there is a noticeable licorice taste that lingers (licorice root is used to provide the low-foaming quality). I don't mind the taste, but some who are used to a powerful mint taste may. I haven't had a canker sore since, and I like that I've eliminated one more chemical from the daily barage of the many found in our bath and body products.
Unusual at first, but worth the change to be rid of SLS
