Why You’ll Love Earthpaste, Peppermint
It’s no mystery that a brighter smile can help people feel more confident. But it’s also a sign of good oral hygiene. There are a couple factors that contribute to a healthy mouth; first and foremost, visiting a dentist. It’s important to go every six months for a regular checkup and professional cleaning—during this time your dentist will also be on the lookout for potential issues, like cavities and signs of gingivitis.
The second thing to consider, and one that’s just as important, is daily care at home. Regular brushing and flossing can help you achieve good oral health, but the products you choose make a significant difference.
Next time your toothpaste tube is empty, consider a more natural option such as Redmond Clay Earthpaste in Peppermint. Earthpaste delivers everything you would expect from a toothpaste, but without the potentially harmful foaming agents, coloring, glycerin, or fluoride. Instead, it’s made with filtered water, food-grade peppermint oil, xylitol, tea tree essential oil, menthol, and real salt. You’ll see the difference as soon as you squeeze it out of the tube, and will be able to enjoy its natural freshness long after you’ve brushed.
Avoiding harmful ingredients in toothpaste
It’s easy to grab a conventional toothpaste brand and assume that great dental health is going to be achieved. While popular brands do help clean teeth, natural toothpaste can provide a safer option with natural ingredients that works just as well. Below are some of the most common chemicals found in traditional dental products that could have a negative impact on health.
- Sodium lauryl sulfate: This foaming agent is included in toothpaste to give it that bubbly reaction. Although the sensation makes it feel like the toothpaste is doing its job, the reality is that the foaming process isn’t necessary for clean teeth. Studies from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention claim that sodium lauryl sulfate can be toxic to the body and “strongly advise that this substance does not enter the environment.”
- Triclosan: While it’s often used in toothpaste to reduce oral bacteria levels, the EPA has actually designated this compound as a pesticide that might also be a carcinogenic.
- Propylene glycol: This is another ingredient found in many toothpastes, but one that’s also the active ingredient in antifreeze—yuck.
Luckily, there are numerous ways to clean teeth naturally, and using Redmond Clay Earthpaste in Peppermint is an excellent option for those that want organic, chemical-free toothpaste that can be used on a daily basis without worry
The difference of Redmond Clay Earthpaste in Peppermint
Redmond Clay Earthpaste in Peppermint not only is free and clear of the bad chemical agents, but it also offers a number of oral care benefits.
- Contains xylitol: This sugar alcohol has been seen in studies to be effective at killing bacteria without the need for synthetic or carcinogenic properties. It’s a much safer way to potentially reduce bacteria levels, which over time can help decrease the risk for things like gum disease and bad breath.
- No foaming agents: Though it might feel different, you can still clean your teeth without adding potentially dangerous components to your mouth, where mucus membranes can absorb them quickly.
- No additives: That means no added colors, flavors, or preservatives, so you only get a pure, natural toothpaste that can still be effective.
- Natural oils: The use of natural, food-grade peppermint oil and tea tree oil creates a fresh flavor and a refreshing sensation, leaving breath smelling great and the mouth feeling clean.
- Food-grade clay: The Redmond Clay and filtered water used in this toothpaste allows it to maintain the familiar texture and feel of traditional products.
Other great oral care products
Redmond Clay Earthpaste in Peppermint is just one of many great natural products that can be used to keep your oral health in tip-top shape. Here are some other dental products to consider:
If peppermint isn’t a flavor you fancy, Redmond Clay also has a toothpaste in Lemon Twist. It’s made from the same great natural ingredients (purified water, food-grade Redmond Clay, xylitol, and Redmond sea salt), but different essential oils (like lemon, lemon verbena, tangerine, and lime), which give it a strong citrus profile.
Here’s another example of what a natural toothpaste can be. This brand uses blue-green algae that contains antioxidants and proteins. This may help improve oral health, as well as strengthen gums and teeth without the use of any harmful chemicals.
This floss stretches and fits into every nook and cranny between the teeth to remove built-up plaque. Not to mention, it holds 30 yards inside, and the soft cushions along the floss keep it gentle on the gums to help prevent bleeding.
Tea tree oil is a naturally occurring antiseptic, and one that may help reduce levels of bacteria in the mouth. Using this rinse after brushing with Redmond Clay Earthpaste can help complete the proper oral care steps for fresh breath and a healthy mouth.
Another natural oral rinse, this one uses xylitol that may help reduce bacterial levels in the mouth, which can prevent germs from sticking to teeth and gums.
This mouthwash is organic and contains no alcohol. Instead, cloves, mint, and peppermint help to freshen breath naturally, while removing bacteria from the teeth and gums.
Reviews For Earthpaste, Peppermint
Based on 48 Reviews
Great for remineralizing! Love this!
I started using this product because I was looking for a more natural toothpaste to help remineralize my teeth. I have been using it for almost a year and love it! The peppermint is definitely my favorite.
What a fabulous surprise!
Great ingredients! Cleans well and all natural. Tried the peppermint since it seems to be the most popular...not disappointed. Will buy in other flavors to test them out...needed a few days to get used to the "no foam" that we are trained to think means clean but that is on us, not the product...
Love this stuff!
Gets the job done without all the additives!
Redmond Clay Earth Paste
Thrive has the best price for this item on the internet. Regarding the Paste itself, the paste has no chemical additions unlike anything available at a grocery store. My dental checkups are good, too. And the Earth paste is good for the environment. Tastes good too.
- Cindy Crutcher
I have only used this once so far (just received it), but I really liked it. The toothpaste itself is a light brown so it's a shock at first when you spit in the sink and see the brown, but that's whatever. There is no foaming action with this paste, but a line of paste on the toothbrush bristles is plenty to clean all your teeth. I judge toothpaste on how well it cleans the grime on the back of my front teeth while using a manual toothbrush - and this passed the test. The flavor was great - very subtle minty flavor and semi sweet...that was it - there is no gross underlying taste from the clay and no bad aftertaste that creeps in. The peppermint oil leaves your mouth with a mellow refreshingly cool feeling. I also love that the large cap on the tube makes it able to stand upright in the medicine cabinet. I hate a toothpaste tube that has to just lay flat - it takes up too much space!!!
I used to think this toothpaste was too pricey but it really lasts and is great quality. Nice mint, clean feel, and a little goes a long way.
Nice flavor and clean feel after brushing but best of all, no fluoride or other harmful chemicals! Great toothpaste!
Nice flavor and clean feel after brushing but best of all, no fluoride, no artifical sweeteners or other harmful chemicals!
I originally bought this when I was trying to go fluoride free and my husband didn't like my homemade varieties. I like that I could have made this myself but it is way more convenient and my husband will use it. The flavor is great. I also just tried their unsweetened (no xylitol) spearmint flavor. Both are great choices.
It's toothpaste, people!
It's pretty good.
I use too much
I really like this toothpaste, but I find that I use more than I think I should for two reasons: first of all, the flavor is good but very mild, and I want it to be a bit stronger. Secondly, the paste is creamy but not sudsy, and I miss that. I would buy it again, nevertheless!
Whitening, Fresh and Clean!
My teeth have whitened 2-3 shades since using this toothpaste. I just ordered 5 more, to share with family and friends. Tastes nice, leaves mouth feeling very clean, and does not make my teeth sensitive like 99% of toothpastes. I was making my own clay-based toothpaste, but this tube is so much more convenient! While still being healthy and similar to my own formula. Love it!
I've been using this brand for months now and it is great! It tastes good, obviously way less strong then other name brands so it takes getting used to if your switching over from inorganic toothpastes. But overall a great product. Would highly recommend.
It makes teeth cleaner. Its better than any toothpaste on the market!!!
Not my fav natural toothpaste
Wish it was a little more soapy and I find that I have to brush a lot more often throughout the day to have that clean feeling...
- Kim Howse
Earthpaste - love it
Clean, tasty, healthy.
A bit dull
I don't get a great clean feeling with this paste. Needs more baking soda and mint to leave a fresh feeling.
I like it
I would but it again but still want to try other brand varieties. I cab really taste the peppermint essential oil and feel it works much better than other natural toothpastes I have tried.
My husband & i love this toothpaste & plan to keep on using it. It has a great minty taste & my teeth feel very clean afterwards & I feel good knowing that it's not a toothpaste that has shown to increase risk of cancer.
LOVE this toothpaste
I've tried many "natural" brands, but had a lot of trouble finding one that didn't make me break out in sores. I love this toothpaste! My mouth feels clean and refreshed after brushing. No more irritation!
Weird at first
This is so different than the regular popular toothpaste brands I've been using my whole life. This doesn't foam up like the "normal" brands and is a darker color. But I wanted to get away from all the chemicals in products and now I really like this. It's pepperminty and I'm now just used to the difference. Love!
I previously made this toothpaste myself. This is exactly the same, but I don't have to make it. WONDERFUL!
My teeth felt really clean after using this!
Great all natural toothpaste!
I can't use floride and this is a good alternative to most other toothpaste.
My Favorite Toothpaste
Redmond has great high quality products, we use their salt and clay for many things, and we couldn't be happier with their toothpaste! It leaves your mouth feeling perfectly fresh and I have yet to see a toothpaste with better ingredients! We've been using it for 2 years and love it!
I love this toothpaste. I love that I do not have to worry about my kids ingesting it. I love the ingredients. I love how clean it makes my teeth feel
This takes quite a bit of getting used to since I'm coming from conventional toothpaste, trying to go more natural. The color is a bit off putting, but didn't take too long to adjust to. The biggest adjustment is no foam. We're conditioned to think foam means it's cleaning. My mouth feels good after using it. It is difficult to get out of the tube. I'm still making up my mind if I'll reorder this.
My new favorite toothpaste
I was bummed when I couldn't find the Weleda Salt Toothpaste on Thrive Market, so I bought one Dr. Bronner's and one Redmond's Earthpaste, figuring I would try them and see which one I liked. Didn't really like the Dr. Bronner's but LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Redmond's Earthpaste. It leaves my mouth feeling fresh and clean, it's not foamy or weird like other toothpastes and it has a really nice flavor. I haven't noticed any changes in the whiteness of my teeth, but this is my new favorite toothpaste!
A good replacement for homemade
This stuff is really convenient for those of us who occasionally make our own toothpaste (powder, in my case) but get lazy and want a comparable product pre-made. One bummer is that I feel like I have to use a lot of this paste to get the same results as my homemade stuff.
Messy but Extra Clean Teeth
I personally love the wintergreen and lemon flavor of earthpaste the most. I don't mind the little extra mess left behind because my teeth feel surprisingly clean. This has permanently replaced my foaming toothpaste.
Give mud a chance
Who would have thought? My mouth feels great. I've enjoyed switching to this paste.
The best toothpaste I have ever used
I have been transitioning all of my products to not include harmful additives. Though I did this with many bath & beauty products years ago, toothpaste didn't really occur to me... I made the switch and have to say it has been absolutely amazing. My teeth feel so unbelievably clean after using this!
I just made the switch and I love it. The no foam aspect takes a little getting used to but its an easy adjustment. It is a little difficult to get out of the tub, but that's to be expected.
Been using this product more than a year, my sensitivity has gone and my mouth feels wonderful.
Our family loves it!
Minimal natural ingredients, and one of the few pastes without carageenan or vegetable glycerin. It tastes great too! My 10 year old calls it his "man paste" because he's brushing his teeth with "mud"! lol However, be prepared for difficult dispensing. Due to the thickness of the paste, it tends to shoot out of the tube and land beyond your toothbrush!
Very happy with this paste
We wanted to try something more natural for our toothpaste and this exceeded our standards. My children love this toothpaste. Their teeth look better than before and there are no more arguments around brushing their teeth. Multiple wins with this product.
Cleansing without a lingering after taste. Great peppermint flavor. A little getting used to no foaming.
Would definitely order again.
Best natural toothpaste!
First off, the ingredients. Can't beat the quality and simplicity. It is a clay, so bear this in mind when rinsing your mouth as it may clog your drains. We usually just swallow the toothpaste since it's totally fine. Flavor options are great; our favorite is peppermint.
This toothpaste is THE BEST. It doesn't foam like conventional but it's easy to get used to. It has a great peppermint scent and the ingredients are amazing. Try it out!
- E. Bayer
I have tried many different natural toothpastes so I know that they often do not taste like regular toothpastes. However, this stuff taste terrible. I tried to keep using it anyways, but after I read on the back that it may contain traces of lead, I threw it away.
new all-time favorite
I love that this doesn't have glycerin (among other things). They kept this simple and it works. This took some coffee stains off my front teeth that I thought might be there forever - super happy!
I finally bought some with my first trial-order. I love it so far! I was using a coconut oil type. I loved the cinnamon flavor and cleansing properties, but wasn't fond of the messy dispensing. I really like the texture of this toothpaste. I agree that it takes getting accustomed, but my teeth feel clean and gums feel well(I found after quitting varieties w/SLS that my gums are much less-irritated).
Slightly gritty, slightly sweet
This is a great, mild, muddy toothpaste that doesn't have the extremely sweet taste most toothpastes have. The peppermint essential oil is wonderful too.
Please Carry Cinnamon!
I love this toothpaste. I hope they carry the Cinnamon flavor, as I cannot tolerate peppermint.
I was a little on the fence about this toothpaste. Glad I bought it. Wonderful texture and very different from other toothpastes. It has a very natural feel to it and the peppermint is not overpowering. A little goes a long way with my sonic toothbrush
Good alternative to powder
I had been using a tooth powder, and missing the consistency of paste. This is great, no yucky ingredients and you get the familiarity of paste. It is a little thin, since there are no foaming agents, but leaves your teeth and mouth fresh. Will purchase again!
Great toothpaste! A favorite
I love Earthpaste, and I've tried 4 of their flavors. Cinnamon is absolutely my favorite, but Peppermint is second. Cinnamon is heavenly, if you're wondering. But both are naturally sooo good, even delicious! The only real problem is that it's really hard to get every last bit out of the tube. Otherwise though, Earthpaste makes brushing more enjoyable than ever!
Toddler and Mama Approved
I've tried many "natural" toothpastes and each one has been denied by my 3 year old until we tried this one. We both love how fresh and "not spicy" it is.
