Burt’s Bees Natural Toothpaste

Recently I received a free sample tube of Burt’s Bees Natural Toothpaste in the mail. With six different versions in their toothpaste menu they sent out a 0.5 oz tube of the multicare with fluoride for me to try.

The first thing I noticed right away is that it is a thicker paste than the brand I currently use, it was heavier at first gliding across my teeth, but it did foam up nice and the heavy feeling went away in just a second. The flavor is good, very minty but not knock you over strong. Best of all? My teeth feel cleaner than with the toothpaste I currently use! I didn’t see that coming; as a coffee drinker it’s important for me to have a great toothpaste. I think I might have found my new favorite.

The package claims it is 99.2% natural which is a pretty high number. Burt’s Bees makes use of natural cranberry as its plaque fighter. According to the website, cranberries contain a nutrient known as Proanthocyanidins [PCAs] and this is good because:

“Studies have shown that PACs inhibit oral bacteria from sticking to the surface of teeth, thereby helping prevent plaque formation before it starts”

The paste also contains calcium and phosphorous but does not contain SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulfate), artificial flavors, sweeteners, color or preservatives. And they never test on animals.

Online a 4 oz tube goes for $5 which is competitive compared to my usual brand. Plus the product is currently available at 11 major retailers (including Whole Foods, Safeway, drugstore.com, Duane Reade, etc), coming soon to Target, Walmart and Rite Aid, and of course can always be purchased on the Burt’s Bees website.

The company has a long and solid track record of caring about the planet and the people who reside on it by providing natural products that work. I’ve been a fan of their lip balms for years already and now they can add me to the list of toothpaste converts as well! Due to their strong commitment to a more natural life I am granting Burt’s Bees multicare with fluoride toothpaste a Four and a Half Leaf Rating!

I've seen Burt's Bees products but have never tried them. My sister always uses Tom's Toothpaste which is also supposed to be all natural.
But I do have to check out that link and try a free sample, I might have just discovered my next favorite toothpaste brand.

Thanks for the info and link. I signed up for the sample.

I do have a problem with the lip balms, I think I am allergic as my lips get worse when I use them. Hopefully, the toothpaste won't cause the same issue. But, if it does, I'll give you mine!

Peace, Judi
