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!
