As moms, many of us are always looking for new products to keep our family healthier and safer. We may try to buy organic produce or use cleaners without harsh chemicals. Well, have you thought about your toothpaste?
Recently, we were sent several tubes of hello toothpaste to try out for mom & dad and for the kids, too!
The first thing we fell in love with- the pacakging! Not that cute toothpaste means it is any safer or better for you, but it really doesn’t hurt. Plus, if the kids find it attractive, it makes teeth brushing time a little bit easier.
The more important thing we love is that hello toothpaste is free of triclosan, dyes, and artificial sweeteners. If you don’t know what triclosan is (we didn’t), it’s used as an antibacterial agent in many household products including most toothpastes. In animal studies it was shown to alter hormone regulation. It was also shown in some studies to contribute to making bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics.
We’re pretty glad to not be putting that in our bodies anymore.
If the first two things didn’t sell you, lets talk about the flavors. The flavors remind me of the fun toothpaste we had as kids. For adults there is: Mojito Mint, Spearmint, Pink Grapefruit Mint, Peach Mango Mint. For kids: Blue Raspberry, Green Apple, Bubblegum
Is it weird to say the flavors are delicious? Don’t swallow the toothpaste! :)
This little (iron)man is pretty into the Blue Raspberry.
If you want to buy hello products (in Nashville), check your closest Kroger. You can also check their website for other locations.
