I actually don't mind it all that much, but I do have to admit it's near the bottom of the list (natural or otherwise) of toothpastes I've tried in recent years.
I give the ingredients 5-stars - fluoride-free and no artificial colors or preservatives. However, I do think that Toms of Maine products have gone downhill a bit ever since being bought out by Colgate-Palmolive. For example, I find the packaging pretty wasteful - the tube is only 1.75oz, and they come in a box. Also, the price is a bit high for such a small serving.
But I don't *hate* the product or anything like that - if my kids didn't dislike the taste, I might be tempted to buy it once in a while. But if you want to try making your own toothpaste, read on...
We've been experimenting with homemade toothpaste, same basic ingredients at Toms of Maine. But they key is, you can flavor it yourself and it doesn't have the aftertaste. You can make about 5oz for 25¢ (which is 97% cheaper). It does take some experimentation, try different flavors of liquid Stevia instead or oil extracts. Here's the recipe if you want to try:
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 tsp fine sea salt (or less, optional)
Mix in small jar (with lid) with 3-4 tbsp water (until paste consistency)
5-8 drops essential oil (peppermint, spearmint, etc - make sure it's food grade)
10-15 drops of liquid stevia (this is my preference, but make sure it's alcohol-free)
* My favorite brand of Stevia is Sweet Leaf (available on Amazon, about $10 for a 4oz bottle). My kids like unique flavors like berry or orange, not the traditional mint.
Furthermore, this product contains "no artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives or dyes" and also "no gluten, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate." However, it does contain ingredients from corn and possibly birch, so persons with allergies to one or both of those will want to avoid it.
The ingredients on the box are listed in small type that I cannot read so I went to the manufacturer's website. Here they are: Glycerin, PDO, water, hydrated silica, xylitol, benzyl alcohol, carrageenan, natural flavor, and citric acid. Wait! What's PDO? Well, Tom's says it's made from corn, a a further look shows that PDO is 1,3 propanediol and is sourced from fermented corn sugar. I looked on another site and saw that it is considered safe although it is classified as a skin irritant by the National Library of Medicine HazMap. I was still uneasy about this ingredient so I looked it up in Wikipedia and found that it is commonly used as an industrial chemical. It is produced in several ways; the method involving corn is conversion "from corn syrup effected by a genetically modified strain of E. coli." That's not very comforting.
And the other ingredients? Well, benzyl alcohol can cause allergic reactions in some people. Although considered safe by the FDA, I read elsewhere that in the European Union it is classified as toxic or harmful when used "around the mouth." And according to Wikipedia, benzyl alcohol is toxic to neonates (newborns). And then there's carrageenan, a recent topic of controversy on some websites. As for the scientists, studies disagree as to whether carrageenan "triggers gastrointestinal tract inflammation or contributes to tumor promotion." And while the evidence is inconclusive, I question putting this ingredient in a product for toddlers.
Tom's of Maine is a respected brand. It has been a subsidiary of Colgate-Palmolive since 2006. Beyond that, I can only point out that word natural is frequently used very loosely in advertising.
As for the taste, I would describe it as more like grapefruit than grapes. I am probably more sensitive than many people and I found this terribly bitter. No doubt some children like it. But personally, I would not give this product to a young child.
