I’ve read that glycerin coats the enamel which prevents the natural re-mineralization of teeth, and that it takes 12 to 27 brushings without glycerin to remove what is left behind by toothpastes that contain it.Ingredients in: Weleda Children’s Tooth Gel 1.78 oz toothpaste (INCI); glycerin, water (aqua), silica, algin, calendula officinalis flower extract, foeniculum vulgare (fennel) oil, mentha viridis (spearmint) leaf oil, esculin and limonene.So far I’ve only found Xlear Spry Tooth Gel to be free of both fluoride and glycerin:Baby Banana Brush And Tooth Gel Combo PackIngredients: Purified water, Xylitol, Calcium Glycerophosphate, Cellulose gum (thickening agent), Natural Strawberry and Banana flavoring, and Grapefruit seed extract (as a preservative).I usually just dip my grandson’s toothbrush in a little coconut oil and/or Xylitol. The Xlear Spry Tooth Gel is much more convenient, especially on the go.Note: I have not seen “independent studies” (who would pay for such?) regarding glycerin’s reputation of preventing mineralization of teeth. If anyone reading this should ever come across such, I’d be most interested. In the meanwhile I’ll stay clear of glycerin to err on the side of caution.
The perfect children’s toothpaste – SAFE, EFFECTIVE & TASTES GREAT
Prior to knowing better, I subjected my poor baby to conventional baby toothpastes. She hated them and she’d gag when I brushed her teeth. Not only that, I can’t believe some of the ingredients that the popular companies use in their toothpastes. I actually hadn’t heard of this brand until I was researching safe products on the EWG Skin Deep website. This toothpaste was rated as the safest of children’s toothpastes.Not only am I very happy with the ingredients and tooth-cleaning ability of this product, I’m also happy that my toddler LOVES this stuff. Seriously – I almost dread brushing her teeth at night because she throws a tantrum every time we’re finished. She loves brushing her teeth more than those Cyndi Lauper sound-alike Sesame Street Muppets did back in the ’80s.
Weleda Children’s Tooth Gel 1.7oz
Bought this for my 2 yr old daughter. She loves brushing her teeth at the same time i do mine. She was not too sure about the taste of this toothpaste. The previous gel we used was kind of sweet, she got used to it. She thought this was different and was cautious for the first few times. The gel is minty to taste and leave nice minty breath. It is child safe as it doesn’t have harmful stuff like fluoride. Surely worth a try if you’re looking for a new tooth gel for your little ones.
The flavor is nice
The flavor is nice. My daughter seems to like it, and I personally tasted it and enjoyed it. The texture is off, however. Its too thick compared to the kids toothpastes we’re used to. It might just be me, but its pretty hard to get it evenly distributed on my daughter’s teeth.It’d be nice to see a flip top lid, as well. The current lid is a screw off lid (with a metal tub! I haven’t seen that since the early 80’s!) and its just kind of hard to juggle an ornery, hyper kid and load a toothbrush while having to screw off a lid at the same time. Its a minor complaint, I know, but its important to me.
Loved this then they changed
I used to love this toothpaste for my toddler. It was rated a 0 on EWG’s skindeep database, which is the best rating a product can recieve. Then Weleda changed the formula and it now has a not so great rating. We have switched to Jack and Jill Naturals toothpaste, which is rated a 0, offers TONS of nice flavors, and is a pretty good price too!
Nice smell nice taste
I like it, my children too, I am just not sure if the fluoride contained is high or it is just fine, check that before
Love, love, love it!
This tooth gel is amazing. I love the natural ingredients. I love that its minty like and not fruit flavored.
So far it’s okay
Kiddo does not love it, but she also doesn’t want to give up her current Abby Cadabby toothpaste (she’s over Sesame, but not Abby yet), so I think some of her "ewww, grosss!" complaints are just grousing. I think it tastes fine and I like what they have in this. I thought it was a good transitional paste to what we’ll eventually use in the next year. She’s just under two now. I’ll update the review when we fully switch.
Good natural product
I like this toothpaste. It is made of natural herbal ingredients. My kid likes it too. At least I know that when she swallows/eats it she is not going to get sick. Nice smell.
