Who else has a kiddo who constantly moans and groans every time you ask them to go brush their teeth? Mine constantly complains about how it’s too hard to squeeze the bottle or that the flavour just isn’t very good, which I can understand because who wants something yucky in their mouth? Well thankfully with Green Beaver® fluoride-free, 100% natural toothpastes, my kiddo is happy with the added bonus of it being natural and having effective ingredients.
What is Green Beaver all about?
Founded in 2002 by husband and wife duo, Green Beaver is a Canadian company with a desire to keep inspiring a natural way of life in a more sustainable world. They provide natural products in the categories of body care, skincare, dental care for adults as well as kids. The natural fluoride-free toothpastes contain calcium and antioxidant vitamin C which help you maintain good oral hygiene health.
Green Beaver toothpastes gently clean and polish teeth with 100% natural ingredients. They are non-GMO, free of artificial flavors and dyes, and do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate. The best thing about these toothpastes is that they are naturally made. They contain calcium, papaya extract, and xylitol, a natural ingredient derived from birch that helps prevent cavities.
The five flavours we were sent and able to test out were:
- Green Beaver Natural Toothpaste – Green Apple
- Green Beaver Naturapeutic Kids Toothpaste – Bubblegum
- Green Beaver Naturapeutic Kids Toothpaste – Strawberry
- Green Beaver Natural Toothpaste – Zesty Orange
- Green Beaver Naturapeutic Toothpaste – Fresh Mint
Can you guess which flavour was Ryersons favourite? *Hint Hint* rhymes with shmubblegum.
Natural, Fluoride-Free Toothpaste for the Whole Family
I’m a standard mint goer myself and don’t love a lot of fruity flavours for toothpaste so I was happy they had an extra whitening fresh mint toothpaste that I’ve kept hidden in my drawer! I like knowing they also have calcium and Vitamin C, all great things for the adults but even better for the kids.
Anti-Cavity, Safe-to-Swallow Kids’ Toothpaste
Unlike other toothpastes, the Green Beaver kids’ toothpastes are made with xylitol, which comes from birch extract. A natural sweetener, xylitol helps in the absorption of calcium and the strengthening of your child’s teeth. It prevents the production of acid (which weakens tooth enamel) and reduces bacteria (which cause cavities). This safe, natural substance thus has many benefits and is the main ingredient in Green Beaver kids’ toothpastes. Plus as an extra bonus (or safety bonus I should say), is these toothpastes are perfectly safe to swallow. That’s not to say let the kiddos eat them like candy but it’s nice to know once they’re rinsing or playing with their toothbrush that I know it’s not harmful for them or their little tummies.
Did you know? Green Beaver’s Naturapeutic Toothpastes are the only toothpastes approved by Health Canada to claim they’re able to prevent cavities and tooth decay without fluoride. They are also the only anticavity kids’ toothpastes that are safe to swallow (also approved by Health Canada).
