Hey, it doesn't erode away the lining of my mouth!,
I've been only using big name brands before I tried Tom's. I only knew about Tom's after seeing my boyfriend use it and originally thought it was only for health and environmentally-conscious extremists. But now I have a reason to switch so I did. I realized that a certain brand of tooth paste was basically removing the skin lining from within my mouth. Gross, and scary. I researched about it and found out many other people were experiencing the same issue and learnt it might be an allergic reaction. So I figured natural products would be better right? RIGHT!
Ever since I started using Tom's, I experienced no problem whatsoever of skin peeling. Definitely makes me feel more safe. At first I wondered if the problem was caused by either the toothpaste or the mouthwash (same brand) or both. I can now conclude that it's just the toothpaste, which is from my experience of using the mouthwash along with Tom's.
Onto my opinion of Tom's toothpaste...the spearmint flavor actually feels like they actually use really mint oil! I mean, the flavor is sharp and strong, kind of like the strength of flavor you get from eating the all-natural Altoids...if that helps for comparison. Who knows, it might just be in my head. The tube is kind of small for the price, so a little expensive (hence -1 star). Lastly, Tom's toothpaste disintegrate better during brushing, whereas other toothpaste leaves chunks of unused paste after brushing.
Overall I recommend this toothpaste, especially for those who have experienced the problem that I had. Plus the fact that the company does good for the environment is another reason I support them. Thanks for reading!
Edit: I noticed some one else reviewing on the same day with similar mouth problem. I don't know if the issue is the same, and I'm definitely not the same person! so i'll mentioning something extra. For me, the lining is not of the gum but more like the cheek and every other "fleshy" part of the mouth not connected to the teeth...if that makes sense.

I know exactly what you are talking about in regards to skin peeling. I switched to this because of the same problem. Sensodyne is another which doesn't make my mouth peel.

YES! I have had this same thing for a year and this is the only toothpaste that doesn't cause my gums to peel. It has been maddening!!! So happy to have found this. So bizarre that this just started happening to me a year ago....
