On Wednesday I was invited to an event in Manhattan to preview the newest addition to the toothpaste line at Tom’s of Maine. I love going into NYC especially on a beautiful June day!
I found myself at Apple Seeds on 25th Street (where the event was being held) which is such a cute place for babies and little kids. It made me reminiscent of when my big kids were babies.
The folks from Tom’s of Maine were so nice and first off I learned that they don’t just make toothpaste. In addition to oral care products they make body care products (and toothbrushes). This peaked my interest as I have almost tweens who are starting to ask about deodorant and managing their skin and what’s great about this company is that the products have no artificial colors, flavors, fragrances or preservatives.
But I’m digressing because they invited me really to talk about their newest product, The Tom’s of Maine Toddler Training Toothpaste. Tom’s of Maine Toddler Training Toothpaste gently and effectively cleans tiny teeth and gums with ingredients derived solely from plants and minerals. Safe if swallowed and fluoride-free, the formula also contains no gluten, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate and is not tested on animals nor has any animal ingredients.
Tom’s of Maine natural Toddler Training Toothpaste is available now at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99. The new introduction rounds out the Tom’s of Maine children’s natural oral care portfolio, which includes options that evolve with the needs of growing families such as Silly Strawberry toothpaste (ages 3-7 years), Juicy Mint anticavity rinse (ages 6 years and up) and the recently introduced Wicked Cool! toothpaste (ages 8 years and up).
And this part is really cool…
The Tom’s of Maine Toddler Training Toothpaste tube is recyclable through the Tom’s of Maine TerraCycle collection Program, which gathers toothpaste tubes as well as a wide array of personal care product packaging and recycles them into useful products like picnic tables and park benches to prevent waste from reaching landfills. Tom’s of Maine gives 10% of profits back to helping communities across the country and supports access to oral care for children across the nation.
So based on what I learned about the all natural ingredients I was excited to have the kids try out the Silly Strawberry and Wicked Cool! toothpaste. It’s such a challenge to get these guys to brush. 2 out of 3 hate mint (which the Tom’s guys tell me is very common) and we’ve already had to deal with cavities in the twins.
I’m not inflating things here when I say they all really love the taste and were excited to brush again this morning! I’m happy about the product and so apparently are the kids! Check out Tom’s of Maine Toddler Training Toothpaste and all of the oral care products.
