Earthpaste Natural Toothpaste Review

The wonderful folks over at Vitacost sent me a few products to review and Earthpaste was the first one I tried. I've been wanting to find a natural toothpaste for a while, so this worked out great for me. The ingredients are very simple: Purified water, Food Grade Redmond Clay®, xylitol, peppermint essential oil, Redmond Real Salt®, tea tree oil. None of the additives that you find in the well known toothpastes. The blurb they have on the Vitacost website describes the mission and values of this company the best:

  • Amazingly Natural Toothpaste
  • No Glycerin
  • No Fluoride
  • Safe to Eat
  • From the Earth
  • No Artificial Coloring
  • No Foaming Agents
You may ask, why the name, Earthpaste? It's a simple answer, really. All the ingredients in Earthpaste are from the earth. Earthpaste won't be what you are used to because it is completely natural with very few ingredients. Redmond Trading Company does not add titanium dioxide to make it white, nor do they add any foaming agents. Earthpaste is natural in color - it's how toothpaste should be. Redmond Trading Company keeps it real.
As a company, Redmond Trading Company has looked for great toothpaste for us and our kids, but have never found it - so they made their own. They use Real Salt® and hydrated Redmond Clay®, and have added Xylitol and essential oils. That's it. Nothing more. They hope you enjoy Earthpaste as much as they do!

Glycerin, fluoride, artificial coloring, foaming agents, titanium dioxide.

Now that you know about the company, and the product, here's how I felt about it. The taste, not too bad, but I kind of miss the minty feel afterwards that you get from other toothpastes. But, my teeth feel awesome..... nice and clean. Really close to the clean feel you get after a cleaning appointment in the dentist's office. It's a pretty good value for the price, too. It runs for $4.59 on the Vitacost site for a 4 oz tube of it.

Overall, I give it an A and it definitely will make my shopping list when I need a new tube of toothpaste.
