Cons

  • Packaging-hard to get out as it is made from metal
  • Taste

This is a good natural option for a children toothpaste. It can be used from babies to preschool aged children. Toothpaste is a sensitive area since there is still a debate about the benefits of extra fluoride. I would recommend not to use fluoride based toothpaste more than once a day even as the child gets older. Brushing regularly, minimizing juice and sweats is a far better alternative.

The big issue with paste is the taste. Most natural pastes do not taste yummy as the cheap regular pastes that use tv characters. I would definitely recommend to use this paste from 1-5 years.

Why this paste is great:

  • Natural Ingredients
  • Taste
  • Low foaming

From manufacturer: 

  • Natural protection for children’s baby teeth, peppermint free
  • Fluoride free
  • Gently cleanses baby teeth with natural silica
  • Biodynamic Calendula soothes the teeth and gums
  • Safe to swallow
