DR BRONNER'S ALL-IN-ONE TOOTHPASTE REVIEW.


Dr Bronner's are a brand that I've been aware of for a while now. Famed for their  cult-classic Pure Castile Liquid Soaps, a multi-purpose cleaner for face, body, hair, home, food and more, they also make a handful of other cosmetic/cleaning products - one of which being this All-In-One Toothpaste. They kindly sent this over to me in honour of World Oral Health Day & here is what I liked and didn't like about it.

Brand Background
Dr Bronner's are cruelty free & almost entirely vegan - their lip & body balms are the only products in their range that are non-vegan as they contain beeswax. They are Logical Harmony certified, Leaping Bunny Certified, use 100% post consumer waste packaging, are fairtrade, non-GMO & this particular toothpaste is 70% organic. Their accreditations are quite impressive to be honest... And looking at the various social + environmental causes they support, they really do seem like a lovely brand - my only wish is for their products to be less plastic-heavy... regardless of where that plastic has come from, it still has to be disposed of eventually, you know?

Price Point
Depending on where you order it from, this toothpaste is around the £7-£10 mark. This is a similar price to many other natural toothpastes on the market, if not ever-so-slightly higher.

Ingredients
This toothpaste contains 70% organic ingredients. It does not contain fluoride.  It comes in 3 variations - Anise, Cinnamon & Peppermint - the flavour I am testing. The full ingredients list for the Peppermint toothpaste is as follows...

Organic Glycerin, Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Hydrated Silica, Calcium Carbonate, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Potassium Cocoate (made with Organic Coconut Oil*), Organic Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil , Organic Mentha Arvensis (Methol) Crystals, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Flour*, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Tocopherol, Citric Acid, Organic Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf / Stem Extract.
* = Certified Fair Trade Ingredient.

Use
This toothpaste is quite sweet compared to the natural toothpastes I've tried before, but the taste isn't unpleasant. It foams nicely (not as much lather as a conventional toothpaste but this is pretty typical of natural formulas) and leaves teeth feeling really clean. It feels very gentle as the abrasive particles in it are very fine. The scent is also gentle but leaves the breath subtly fresh.

Final Verdict
Like I say, it cleans the teeth well & leaves your mouth feeling fresh. I think that it's a brilliant option if you're after a fluoride-free natural toothpaste. It cleans a lot better than other toothpastes I've tried that have coconut oil in them - plus coconut oil has been famed for the dental health properties it can bring to your oral health routine. If you're after a toothpaste that has fluoride in, you'll have to look elsewhere as all 3 flavours are without fluoride added. But for the fluoride-free folks, this is a good option! You can shop the range here.
