Red Seal Baking Soda toothpaste helps clean better than regular toothpastes. Baking Soda breaks down into tiny particles that penetrate crevices in teeth enamel, removing stains and food particles while neutralising plaque acids. With a powerful, minty flavour for fabulous mouth freshness, it contains calcium carbonate, a mild abrasive for cleaner, whiter teeth.
• No added fluoride. There is conflicting evidence on the benefits of fluoride. Excess fluoride may cause chalky white patches on the teeth giving a mottled appearance. This condition is irreversible. Red Seal provides you with a range of non-fluoridated toothpastes to meet your specific needs.
• Baking soda freshness.
• Gentle but strong stain-removal qualities.
• Natural antibacterial action.
• Fights plaque and decay.
• Contains natural herb extracts and oils.
• Powerful minty fresh taste.
• Suitable for the whole family
• Paraben free.
• Colour free.
• No tricoslan, peroxide, potassium nitrates, or strontium chloride.
After many years of not caring for my teeth as I should and years drinking litres of Cola per day my teeth leave a lot to be desired. Becoming more and more self conscious of the fact that my teeth are discoloured and wanting to encourage my own children to take care of their teeth, I have tried many teeth whitening products but often find the taste very off putting.
The taste of the Red Seal Baking Soda toothpaste was minty, a little grainy but nothing I couldn't handle and left a refreshing feeling. Although I highly doubt my teeth will ever be sparkling white the staining has significantly decreased. Success! I am also impressed that a product that cost $3.50 can have this much effect over a fortnight using no chemicals when many other treatments that I have tried have not made any noticeable difference and have cost substantially more.
I am neither here nor there in the debate about fluoride so this in no way influenced my decision. I also love that it is suitable for the entire family and for the price its not so much of a stress if your three year old gets into it! All in all a great toothpaste that meets expectations set by it's self.
I have always been excited when I am chosen to review something that has been sent to KIWIreviews, and this was the case with Red Seal Baking soda toothpaste. I have always been on the fence when it has come to the fluoride debate. It is probably something I should research further. My daughter is 8 years old and suffers many allergies, as a result she is on a lot of allergy medication. This medication weakened and damaged her teeth, resulting in her going from perfect teeth to needing 4 fillings in one go
During these visits to the clinic, the dentist advised that our best course of action was to paint her teeth with fluoride to help strengthen and protect them. Not knowing any different I agreed. Now other than her teeth being weakened and requiring the fillings, her teeth looked lovely. Over time after the fluoride had been applied to her teeth, I noticed chalky white patches appearing on her two front teeth, and no matter how much she brushed her teeth always appeared to have yellow discoloration to them. I was really dissapointed.
So obviously, when learning that the Red Seal toothpaste did not contain fluoride, I was over the moon. I was also happy to learn it was free of colour, peroxide, potassium nitrate paraben, and so much more that she did not need to be putting in her mouth. I was sold at the fact it was all natural, and I jsut hoped it was going to live up to everything it promised. After reading some discussion on KIWIreviews facebook page, I decided I was going to photograph my daughters teeth over the course of the couple weeks we had to review before needing to write this up. I was amazed by the results.
I am really super super impressed. In fact this is possibly the most impressed I have actually ever been about a product haha. The photos of course do help with my overall impression of this toothpaste, as I can not only see the results in person when she smiles but with the photos I can see what her teeth were like when we first started, without that visual I would possibly just shrug and say umm yeah I think it worked lol This stuff is amazing seriously. Not only has it whitened her teeth, but it also looks to have begun to repair the chalky white bits on her teeth. Due to her allergies, this will be the only toothpaste we will buy now. I will need to stock up on it where I am able, as we are seasonal workers, so will need to buy it in bulk for the off season too lol .
Not only am I impressed, but so is miss 8. She loves the look and feel of her teeth. She loves the smell and the taste. And where she used to spend a couple minutes brushing her teeth well, she now spends twice that time making sure every inch of her teeth are well and truly brushed. Thank you red seal and KIWIreviews, the results are amazing and we are so happy to have been chosen. My oldest boy suffers many teeth problems and had all his teeth removed aged 3 due to gum disease, so we are now on the hunt for another red seal toothpaste I recently read in another KIWIreviews red seal toothpaste review lol
Definitely two thumbs up, 100/10 from us.
I was given a tube of this baking soda toothpaste to try and was looking forward to getting started as it has been many years since I've used baking soda toothpaste of any kind. As soon as I tried it for the first time, it brought back a familiar taste that I remember of other baking soda toothpastes.
Overall I loved the taste of this toothpaste - it was minty enough to give that really clean feeling, but not overpowering. The texture was quite grainy, but I loved this about it - it really felt like my teeth were getting a good clean and although it's hard to tell at this stage whether it is whitening them up, it certainly feels like it could be.
Like all red seal toothpastes, this is scientifically designed to give the best possible clean, but without using fluoride. The lack of fluoride was something I had to get my head around initially, but as a person who's not strongly inclined for or against the fluoride debate, the explanation on the box was enough to make me happy using this toothpaste.
I'd happily buy this toothpaste again... in fact I'm wondering why I ever stopped using baking soda toothpastes in the first place and I really hope that my teeth start looking noticeable whiter soon.
Being a heavy coffee drinker I find my teeth are often stained so I tend to buy whitening toothpastes which half the time are triple the price of normal toothpaste and don't actually work. I also hate to think just how many chemicals are in some of them too. When the red seal baking soda came up for review I was keen to give it a try. Stain removing tooth paste without the chemicals!
I have been using the red seal baking soda toothpaste for just over a week and while there hasn't been much different in the whiteness of my teeth yet everything else has me sold on it. While a lot of toothpastes have a strong horrible taste I find the baking soda one just right. It leaves your mouth minty fresh without being over powering. I found after using it my teeth felt cleaner than they usually are. I had a friend staying last weekend and she gave it a go as well and her comments were well it leaves your mouth so fresh!
I did find the texture a bit odd to start with as it is a little more grainy than I am used to but I found by day three I wasn't even noticing it anymore. I will be continuing to use it and the red seal baking soda toothpaste will become a regular in our home. I love the fact it has no nasty surprises hiding in it.
I'm not a huge fan of brushing my teeth but I know from my many dentist appointments that it is a nessessary part of every day healthy living so twice a day I subject myself to typical minty tasting toothpaste that leaves my breath fresh and my teeth nice and smooth. I know this routine is good for me but when I go to the dentist and they tell me that I need another two fillings I can't help but feel like my chosen toothpaste isn't doing it's job correctly so when the opportunity to review some Red Seal toothpaste came up I put my metaphorical hand up and requested a tube to try.
The taste wasn't as smooth as I expected, it was a little grainy to be honest but that is such a minor thing it's not even worth worrying about. Red Seal gave my teeth the same clean feeling as other toothpaste brands but with far less chemicals (and who knows what else?!) and no flouride.
I'm hoping the baking soda in this toothpaste will eventually start turning my teeth whiter but I didn't see any noticeable change within the week that I was reviewing it. I will continue to use it though in the hopes that the claims made on the box are correct!
Well done Red Seal and supplying a great natural alternative to other toothpastes!
I've tried Baking Soda toothpaste in the past and really didn't like it as it was a very grainy toothpaste in texture and it really put me off the toothpaste but when I saw this up for review I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to try out the competition and see if it could be any better than expected.
My first reaction is that I really like the box that this comes in, it is nice and basic, gives you all the information that you would need and I really do like the plant design on the right of the box, really caught my eye and makes it feel natural. One of the main things it states it can do is stain removal and while I've seen no huge difference to my teeth and their colouring I'm willing to continue trying it to see if it really does work. There is a slight grittiness to the toothpaste but it didn't take over the paste and it hasn't put me off buying this in the future.
I haven't really followed anything about flouride in toothpaste or water, but I am glad to see that this is free of it, as another option for people to use. A major plus for me is also that it hasn't been tested on animals, something that makes me more inclined to use it. This is a nice toothpaste and I'm happy to keep on using it.
I have found that in the past I could brush my teeth after breakfast and by lunch time I feel the need to brush my teeth again as they don't feel clean. I have also tried toothpaste that said it was all natural and good for your teeth but then the paste tastes like motor oil and doesn't do a very good job so I thought I would put my hand up for some toothpaste and hope for the best.
I really liked the packaging, found it fresh and innovative but I was a bit worried about the no fluoride as I am old enough to remember all the debate about having fluoride in the water and being advised by a dentist that the best toothpaste is one that contains fluoride. I tried some and found that I really liked the taste and I found that my mouth felt clean and that by dinner time I still had that nice clean just brushed feeling even after a full day of eating and drinking. The "grainy" texture wasn't a big issue as I wasn't expecting a smooth gel like you can get with chemicals.
I'm that impressed with the tooth paste that I would continue to buy it as my mouth and teeth have never felt cleaner. I would try the other flavours just to get some variety.
I've been happily using a brand of toothpaste for quite some time now so I thought it would be interesting to see how this Red Seal Baking Soda Toothpaste compares, especially with the claims to teeth whitening. My teeth are very discoloured from too much coffee drinking so I am always up to try anything that claims to whiten my teeth without using harsh chemicals.
I really like the taste of this toothpaste. It is very refreshing and definitely makes my mouth feel clean and fresh. I like the feel of the toothpaste on my teeth and they do feel very lean after brushing. I have been using the toothpaste for about a week and a half now and haven't noticed a huge change in the could of my teeth. I do however like the feel and taste of this toothpaste so much that I will continue to use it. Hubby also has been using it and seems to be quite happy with its performance also over our normal brand.
I will definitely continue to use this as I love how my teeth feel after each brushing with it and can definitely recommend trying it. Although I don't specifically look for a product that doesn't have fluoride in it if that is what you would prefer then this is definitely a brand worth trying.
Short version: My second-favourite toothpaste EVER!
Longer version: I gave up smoking many many years ago, but the damage to my teeth was done. My 'compensation thing' - drinking a major-brand cola - hasn't done them any great favours either. Tar and cola stains don't make for that Hollywood Smile.
Having tried some of the earlier tooth-whitening products years ago, they were almost too horrific to describe. Caustic liquids dabbed on the teeth, dripping down to give generous chemical burns to my defenceless gums... ineffective gels and rubberised mouthguards that get really uncomfortable after only a few minutes... even prolonged periods sitting in a chair with ultraviolet lights cooking the inside of my mouth.
Then I just gave up.
A month ago I discovered Red Seal's Baking Soda toothpaste, and since I had already been using their amazing Propolis Extract antibiotic toothpaste to help deal with an infected tooth, I thought it couldn't do any harm to give it a try. SO glad I did! In the last month, my teeth have started to show definite signs of lightening up. Still got a long way to go, sure... but the journey has certainly begun with promising results in a timeframe I can certainly live with.
Overall, the (second) best toothpaste I own... beaten only by the Red Seal Propolis one. This was so easy to use - well, naturally. But it was also gentle, effective and most importantly for those of us with sensitive teeth... PAINLESS!
I took a tube of this Red Seal Baking Soda Toothpaste home the other week. I have been using it daily since then, and have enjoyed it very much. The taste of this paste has a minty flavour, with a definite baking soda taste and feel to it as well. What that does, is deliver the powerful minty fresh taste as promised. It really is very bold. The paste also has a grainy or powdery texture to it, when you bite down.
I found this to be a great morning paste for getting ready in the morning. It made me feel refreshed and energised for the day. Because it is chemical free, I feel it is safer to have around on the bench. If the kids do get into it, then I don't need to worry about them having some on their own brushes. Apart from the flavour being unlikely to be acceptable to them.
I'm personally not at all worried about fluoride in our tooth care products, but I know some people who are. I'm glad that a product like this is available for people who want to limit that in their system. My own teeth are yellow from early childhood medication, where my adult teeth were damaged. So I didn't notice much difference in the colour of my teeth. But I did take a small amount and use it to clean the inside of my husband's coffee cup. The affect was very noticeable. Long-standing stains shifted easily with a rubbing of the paste into the cup.
