Jason Kids Only Toothpaste and MAM BPA/Phthlate/PVC Free Toothbrush Review

jason kids toothpaste and mam toothbrush

When I posted my Weleda Children’s Tooth Gel Review last year, someone mentioned the Jason Kids Only toothpaste. We’ve been using the Jason Kids Only Shampoo/Conditioner and have been happy with it, so I figured the toothpaste was worth a try. I was able to find it at Toys R Us and the 4.2 oz tube retails for under $6.

I’ve been meaning to write about this for literally 6 months, but with a lot of this stuff, I feel like there’s really not much to say unless it’s terrible, or somehow super amazing!

It does not contain: fluoride, sulfate, wheat, gluten, saccharin or artificial colors/flavors. The ingredients are: glycerin, water, silica, xylitol, xanthan gum, panthenol, aloe vera leaf juice, calendula flower extract, calcium carbonate, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, and flavor.

I tasted a little bit of it and it has that typical strawberry-for-kids flavor. It’s easy to squeeze out, but doesn’t come out too fast. We’ve bought this twice, and I will probably continue to buy it as long as we need fluoride-free toothpaste.

I also picked up a MAM toothbrush that’s BPA, Phthlate, lead and PVC free. It is shaped nicely to make it easy for little hands to use and hold, and I really haven’t found many other options for toothbrushes for little ones without all the icky stuff. The only thing that annoys me is that because of the way they are shaped, they won’t stay sitting on the counter bristles up. If you put some toothpaste on it and try to set it down, it rolls on it’s side and you end up with toothpaste all over the counter!

Tom’s of Maine Wicked Fresh Toothpaste Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 11/22)


Tom's of Maine

I’ve been a Bzzagent for several years now, and my most recent campaign is for Tom’s of Maine Wicked Fresh Toothpaste.

I try to buy natural products for my kids whenever possible, but there really hasn’t been room in the budget to “green up” my own health & beauty routine.  Tom’s of Maine Wicked Fresh Toothpaste contains fluoride (which I know some people avoid) and also contains sodium lauryl sulfate.  It does not contain alcohol, or any artificial ingredients.  It’s easy to find in “big box” stores nationwide, and it’s available in both Cool Peppermint and Spearmint Ice flavors.

Tom’s of Maine is cruelty free, with no animal testing or animal ingredients, no artificial colors, flavors, fragrances or preservatives.  They share every ingredient, it’s purpose and it’s source on their website.  Sustainable practices are a priority for their business, and they maximize the recycled content and recyclability of their packaging.  They dedicate 5% (12 days) of employee time to volunteering, and 10% of their profits go to human and environmental goodness.

My daughter, husband and I used the sample size boxes, which were all cool peppermint flavor.

The toothpaste had a natural looking color, slightly gritty texture, and a natural, almost herbal-y (not sure how else to put that!) mint flavor.

After I brushed, my teeth didn’t have quite the same slick clean feeling that I’m used to, but after I flossed and used my mouthwash, they felt very clean.  I didn’t notice any extended freshening though!  The suggested retail price for a 5.2 ounce tube is $4.19.  I’ve been CVSing (yeah, I used it as a verb) for about three years now, so I haven’t paid any “real” money for toothpaste since before then.  The Tom’s of Maine toothpaste really isn’t much more than other brands, but for someone not used to paying for toothpaste, it’s a lot!!
Giveaway: I am sending the full size, 5.2 ounce tube to one of my readers.
