It can be hard to find toothpaste that does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). Most of Tom’s of Maine toothpastes contain it, and for my family, this is an ingredient we avoid. Organic Triple Action Toothpaste by Kiss My Face is SLS-free and works to prevent plaque and tartar build up.
A breakthrough in the science of oral hygiene. Kiss My Face Triple Action Toothpaste uses soothing Certified Organic Aloe Vera combined with a powerful blend of carefully selected natural whiteners to create a truly exceptional toothpaste that still leaves your mouth feeling tingly fresh. Contains Certified Organic Aloe Vera, Silica (natural whitener), CO-Q10 (for healthy gums), Peppermint (natural flavor), Horse Chestnut (for healthy gums), Tea Tree Oil (cleansing and antiseptic), and Menthol (natural flavor)
Although this product has not been evaluated by the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) Skin Deep Database, older Kiss My Face toothpastes received relatively low hazard scores.
This product does contain sorbitol (plant origin), which with excessive use can cause health problems. Since you don’t swallow toothpaste, it is probably not an issue here. EWG gives sorbitol a hazard score of zero.
Xylitol is a great replacement for fluoride in fighting cavities, but remember, it’s not safe for dogs!
The strong minty flavor of this toothpaste makes it inappropriate for young children, but it sure freshens Mommy and Daddy’s breath!

Is it not appropriate for children because they don’t like minty toothpaste, or is there some health reason that young children should not have minty toothpaste. My two year old likes minty toothpaste, but I can’t find a children’s toothpaste that is mint flavored (I’d rather not ger her into the berry blast stuff). I’ve been having her use Toms non fluoride toothpaste as an alternative. That was all I could find at my healthfood store. Any suggestions?

There is no reason not to let your child use the grown-up toothpaste, especially if fluoride-free. The natural kids’ toothpastes are only trying to appeal to their sensitive taste buds, I believe. In fact, you don’t really need toothpaste at all. A ped. dentist told me once all you are doing is just moving the bacteria around so it can’t take hold and form cavities.
