So what do they use to combat the most common teeth and gum related problems?
- Calcium carbonate to gently clean and remove plaque.
- Organic essential oils Vitamin C and Myrrh to combat gum disease.
- Aloe Vera to soothe tender gums and reduce swelling. It also has very strong antiseptic properties.
On first taste the mandarin and aloe vera toothpaste is quite sweet and is clearly less sharp tasting than the usual variations of mint that are available on the market. After my daughter's initial taste and consideration of what she had just tried, she asked for three more blobs of toothpaste on her brush while merrily brushing her teeth with contented vigour between each request. I took that as a sign that she liked it as I've never seen her brush her pearly whites quite like that before!
The other joy is that it is completely non-toxic if swallowed and there is no need to rinse after brushing. It is also vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Spearmint and Mandarin are the two flavours that The Green People Organic Children toothpaste range is currently available in. Both retail for £3.50 for a 50ml tube.
