Great to know that this children's toothpaste is free of sulfates, parabens, SLS, synthetic preservatives, flavors, colorants or harsh abrasives, which is especially important for children's teeth. It does have some great ingredients: non-hydrated silica gently cleans children's teeth, calendula and sweet almond oil soothe and heal sore gums, strengthen the enamel, reduce redness and inflammation, algin and esculin are safe and all-natural binders and viscosity increasing agents, but this toothpaste also contains limonene, which is a possible human immune system toxicant, irritant and allergen. Even though limonene is one of the major constituents of orange essential oil, it becomes dangerous and toxic when it's oxidized or turns rancid, which happens when it's exposed to air or sunlight. It doesn't happen that often in personal care products and hopefully, it's not the case with this toothpaste, but it would be much better and safer without this ingredient.
