- Tasty Mint Flavor
- For Clean and Bright Teeth
Brush teeth thoroughly after meals or at least twice per day. Supervise children until good brushing habits are established.

Recommended for ages 4 and up.
Calcium carbonate, xylitol, organic aloe vera juice, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), essential oil blend (peppermint, eucalyptus, cardamom, anise), natural sodium lauroyl lactylate (from coconut oil and vegetable lactic acid), organic tapioca starch, carrageenan (from red seaweed extract), stevia leaf extract, licorice root extract, tea tree oil, tulsi oil.
Unlike many other toothpastes, this one is free of fluoride, sulfates, parabens, propylene glycol, PEGs and other synthetic additives, preservatives, dyes or harsh abrasives and contains all-natural and safe ingredients: calcium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate gently clean the teeth without damaging the enamel, xylitol, stevia leaf and licorice root extracts and a powerful blend of peppermint, eucalyptus, cardamom, anise, tea tree and tulsi essential oils prevent and reduce plaque and tartar build-up by killing harmful tooth decay-causing bacteria and stimulating the growth of tooth-protective, non-acidic bacteria, remove stains, strengthen the enamel, help prevent caries, gingivitis and parodontosis, heal sore gums, reduce redness and inflammation, fight halitosis and pro mote fresh breath, sodium lauroyl lactylate is a safe surfactant and emulsifying agent, organic tapioca starch is a natural viscosity increasing agent, carrageenan (natural, not its degraded and chemically processed variety, poligeenan) is a thickener made from seaweed. It doesn't even contain silica, which may be too harsh and abrasive for sensitive teeth and weak enamel, or glycerin, which may interfere with the remineralization of the tooth enamel. I personally love this toothpaste and would recommend it, but if you have acid reflux, gastritis or are just allergic to mint, this toothpaste is definitely not for you: it has a very strong mint flavor.
protection against cavities i give it 2 stars. Tea tree oil does not reduce plaque, just read an australian article about this. Also after 2 mnths of using another tee trea oil toothpaste i have 2 cavities in my wisdom tooth, and before i used fluoride paste and i had many infections and food trap behind the flap, still no cavity. So ill stick to fluoride paste as the benefits out weighs the negative. Also fluoride exists naturally and even lead cant be fully avoided as it exist in the soil. One can choose to live in fear and mind alone will affect you more than fluoride in it self does. But for removing tartar 5 stars. But its too abrasive for me to be using every day.

I love this toothpast as it is Fluoride-Free, but 3 stars only because the problem is the plastic tube itself. It soon or later breaks and the past comes out in different places and it become very messy so that I do have to through it away before it is empty. It now happens with 2 toothpast tubs. I really wonder nobody is mentioning this. I wish they could change to a better tube, so I could order it again.
Kids liked it

Always trust Mercola products but real test is if the fussy kid in the family likes the taste and he did. However one problem was with leaking from the lid. We live in a hot climate and this toothpaste turned into a liquid. Would not buy again because of this. Iherb provides incredible service, price and quality Click on the blue text above (kiwikent) for more reviews.

Esta pasta dentrífica me ha parecido de buena calidad. Me deja los dientes bien limpios, y lo más importante es que los componenetes son naturales sin OGM. Deja un sabor un poco amargo los primeros 5 minutos.

Really like the taste and love the ingredients.
Good for people with problems with sodium Laurel sulfate
Posted by newday on Sep 28, 2014
My mouth reacts to even a small amount of sodium laurel sulfate and I've had a general soap allergy for years. I bought this last month and so far so good. I can only use a very tiny amount on my brush because the mint is so strong so this will last for years. But my mouth is healing from my use of Tom's of Maine kids strawberry toothpaste which contains a very small amount of SLS.
