“They really need better marketing. I’m confused. What is it, toothpaste made of earth”? – my sweet husband.
Well, yes. That’s exactly what Earthpaste is. It is paste made from clay for your teeth. And from the reviews, it is OUTSTANDING. The co-op members love it too, we ordered six cases of it within just a week! I’m a crunchy kind of girl and was using baking soda, coconut oil and essential oils for awhile but it left something to be desired. I was ready for a change and had to try some myself to see what the fuss was all about.
Purified Water to hydrate the clay into a creamy paste.
Xylitol, a natural sweetener that has been shown to promote healthy teeth.
Tea Tree Oil, a natural, essential oil, commonly used to promote healthy skin, supports oral health with excellent anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
Menthol, found in peppermint and wintergreen Earthpaste, leaves your breath fresh and mouth feeling clean.
These special oils are used for flavoring & a wide variety of other health benefits listed below.
Peppermint will make your breath smell fresh, and it’s widely used to promote stress relief and support digestion.
Wintergreen lends a sweet, minty flavor and has been used to promote dental health.
Cinnamon brings a familiar, spicy flavor along with its reputation as an antioxidant used to promote healthy immune function.
I’m lazy so I copied and pasted stuff from their website. Doubt they’ll mind…
Earthpaste began because we couldn’t find a natural toothpaste we loved for our families. We wanted a toothpaste that was as natural as possible, so we started with hydrated Redmond Clay and added Xylitol, essential oils, and Real Salt. And that’s it. Earthpaste is amazingly natural toothpaste.
Earthpaste is Different
Earthpaste delivers all the benefits you expect from a toothpaste without any chemicals or unnatural additives. It’s toothpaste unlike any other you’ve experienced – you’ll see the difference on your brush and feel the difference in your mouth.
Earthpaste’s list of ingredients is unique, but the things we left out are just as important. Most brands of toothpaste contain foaming agents like SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), and chemicals like titanium dioxide to make the paste bright white. Not Earthpaste. It isn’t just safe to swallow – each ingredient in Earthpaste has been used to support healthy systems.
Even more questions answered here!
Ok, now for the completely unbiased review. Because obviously a company isn’t going to put, “Hey, your toothpaste was disgusting and made my mouth feel like sand.”
I got a few samples to try and here is what I think, uncensored.
Lemon: great for kids! Liam actually is pretty good about brushing his teeth but this is our first attempt with toothpaste. I tried a Flouride Free Burt’s Bees awhile ago and he was really grossed out. I think the lemon flavor is more familiar and palatable to kids so it was an instant winner. He actually allowed me to brush his back molars in addition to the usual front scrubbing.
Cinnamon: a little spicier than I expected but I got used to it after a few brushings.
Peppermint: Not particularly a fan of peppermint regardless, so, to be fair, I didn’t expect to like it. Which I didn’t. But you might!
Wintergreen: yep, will definitely be using this one again.
