Weleda Children’s Tooth Gel Review


Weleda Children's Tooth Gel

I was looking for an alternative to the fluoride-free toddler toothpaste my son was using, since it’s rated a “5” on the skin deep cosmetics database.  I checked our local organic store and found Weleda‘s Children’s Tooth Gel.

The tooth gel is fluoride free, as well as free of detergents, artifical fragrances, colors and preservatives.  It’s rated a 3 on the skin deep database with a 72% data gap.  Since the only ingredent that is “yellow” (moderate safety) is limonene, I’m pretty confident that it’s safe for my son to use. 

While I didn’t pay anywhere near the $7.00 MSRP, the $4.59 price tag was still a little gasp inducing for a 1.78 oz. tube!

The first little squirt out of the tube looked rather off white, but it’s really a pretty bright yellow.  I tasted it, and it has a somewhat strong, natural mint flavor.  I wondered how my son would do, since most toddler products are fruity flavored.  He wasn’t startled by the flavor and seemed to enjoy it.  My almost 6-year old likes it too!  Then again, she’s weird, and has always liked minty “grownup” toothpaste!

Unless I find something with a “lower rating” in the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, I will continue to buy this!

FTC compliance: I paid normal retail price for this product, I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.

    […] I’m always on the lookout for new fluoride-free toothpaste. We’ve used Jason Kids Only, Weleda tooth gel, and most often, Tom’s of Maine silly strawberry. I generally order the toothpaste online […]

    >This is the best toddler toothpaste I've found so far too regarding ingredients, etc. I was using a fruity toothpaste for my son but it didn't seem to help with breath. So I switched to Weleda also. I like that it has a minty flavor instead. It cleans his teeth better too. I was hesitant before because I'm trying to avoid aluminum. But I found out from Weleda that the tube has a BPA-free liner. So I went with it.Since limonene occurs naturally in essential oils I don't worry about it. Some people have skin irritations from it but as long as we don't it doesn't bother me.

    >I like the JASON NATURAL COSMETICS EARTH'S BEST: TODDLER TOOTHPASTE – STRAWBERRY & BANANA. It's rated a 3 and works well for my son. They have it at BabiesRUs!
