After tackling your deodorant and your nail polishes, we are moving on to your toothpaste. That’s right, I know you love me.
We are right in the middle of the great toothpaste debate in our household. The question? Whether or not to use toothpaste while brushing our 2 year old’s teeth. There is a lot of conflicting research out there on toothpaste for children. Not only does traditional toothpaste contain a ton of chemicals I usually stay far away from, but they also have some potentially poisonous ingredients.
Enter Dr. Sharp’s fluoride free toothpaste: the only eco-friendly toothpaste developed by a dentist. Why fluoride free you ask? Well, to put it lightly, this toothpaste does not require an FDA warning label since fluoride has some potential health risks for you and me. And, they make a fantastic strawberry cream flavored kid’s toothpaste that my son loves! We can now brush his teeth and not worry about the toothpaste!
Now, your and my dentist may have an issue with fluoride free, so I asked Dr. Sharp for his thoughts on the issue and he pointed out that there is already fluoride in the water and the ingestion of it from the water is already assisting in preventing the tooth decay and therefore do not need the excess in the toothpaste. Works for me!
Not only do I totally dig the packaging, but this stuff is great. It is naturally sweetened with stevia, vegan, has sustainable packaging that is printed with soy ink, contains certified organic botanicals, and the adult versions (green tea and fresh mint) even whiten teeth.
Now for the great news! Dr. Sharp is giving one of you a full family set of the toothpaste (an almost $50 value)!
The set contains:
1 Fresh Mint Whitening Toothpaste
1 Green Tea Whitening Toothpaste
1 Strawberry Cream Kids Toothpaste
1 Fresh Mint Mouthwash
Just leave a comment before midnight, May 6th, to be entered!
