I used it this morning and the flavor made me happy, it is delicious, and my mouth felt so clean. And then, oh dear me, I decided to take a look at the ingredients list (not found on the Amazon listing) and to my utter dismay I saw TRICLOSAN. I just KNOW the French king did not put that gunk in his mouth. Then I noticed the box said, en francais, that the recipe was "inspired" by that made up by Dr Botot for the king. Inspiree, not the real recipe!
But for the triclosan (and possible the extraordinarily long list of sodium this that and the other following it), I'd say it was my fave toothpaste.
Because I love the taste, I will finish it, but I will rinse the heck out of my mouth, and then never buy it again. There'd better be no scary ingredients in the mouthwash, because I ordered that too.
This is the second time I've been disappointed by the presence of triclosan in a product I like. (That being the baking soda deodorant, that makes me smell wonderful and makes me sweat less than antiperspirants.)
You DO NOT need triclosan if you have clove oil. Clove oil is already antibacterial. Sadly, the box itself touts triclosan as the star antibac ingredient. Please, please stop making this gorgeous product with triclosan. I thought that stuff was banned in Europe, anyway.
[Edit 10/14/2014: I really do still enjoy using it, and it makes my teeth feel fantastically clean. I just rinse a couple extra times.Read more ›
Take a look: Calcium carbonate, Sorbitol, Aqua, silica, flavor, sodium lauryl sulfate, cellulose gum, sodium monofluorophosphate, triclosan, sodium phosphate, sodium saccharin, sodium methylparaben.
Sodium lauryl sulfate was not an ingredient back in those days, nor was the preservative methylparaben or cellulose gum etc. I have to question a lot of the ingredients for that matter.
Now with all of that being stated, this toothpaste does work and it is a nice change from the drug store variety. I just think the company who manufactures this product shouldn't lead the consumer to believe it's the original recipe. It is worth giving it a try though.
*W A Y* too harsh on the lining of my mouth. They sting, burn, and in my opinion have a very unappealing chemical flavor. Plus most have fluoride, and since I have thyroid issues, I try to avoid that.
I adore the unique and delicious spicy flavors in this formula, and they do not burn my oral tissues. It leaves my mouth clean and fresh, but not in that horrible supercharged over the top minty flavored way so many other commercial brands do. It's well concentrated and I find a little goes a long way. It foams well, which I know is important to many people.
This is genuinely one of my very favorite personal care products ... Along with Dr Collin's soft Perio brushes. For me, they're a perfect combination.
I don't intend to ever use anything else.
