Reach Natural Antibacterial Toothpaste - Fresh Mint product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsIn response to demand for products that are 'better for me and better for the planet', new Reach Natural Antibacterial Protection Toothpaste uses an extract from the magnolia tree to safely kill the bacteria that cause bad breath, cavities, plaque and tartar. With fewer of the odour-producing bacteria that are found along the gumline, gum health is also improved.

In line with recommendations by the NZ Dental Association, Reach recognises the importance of including fluoride to substantially strengthen tooth enamel and lower the risk of cavities. The new Reach Toothpastes offer the best of both worlds: the power of nature, combined with fluoride that is recognised as essential for strong teeth.

Reach natural antibacterial protection toothpaste is free from triclosan, parabens, sugar and preservatives and has a delicious fresh mint flavour for really fresh breath.

Thanks to the glorious mystery of genetics, I have never had great teeth, however, a couple of years ago I was assaulted and some nerves in my jaw were badly damaged causing the breakdown of my teeth to accelerate as they started dying from the roots up. Naturally, this created 'bad breath' problems and it is something that has made me extremely self-conscious when in close proximity to other people. I was at my wit's end trying to deal with it, and the only solution I found was to basically keep a couple of small mints tucked away in my mouth at all times.

However, my interest was aroused by the appearance of this toothpaste on the market. Claiming to have a natural antibacterial agent in the recipe that would slap the bad bugs into submission, I figured I had nothing to lose by trying it, and I was very pleasantly surprised by the results achieved in a very short period of time. Less than a week after starting to trial it, I noticed a distinct reduction in the unpleasant odour when I exhaled. It didn't fully remove the bad breath, but then I didn't really expect it to.

The paste itself feels thicker than regular toothpastes, and has less of the chalky texture that I have come to expect from non-gel pastes. I did find that because of the extra thickness, it tended to cling to the area of my mouth where I start to brush rather than the brush, so I had to adjust the method of brushing slightly - instead of starting to brush immediately, I now 'paint' the paste across all my teeth first, then begin to scrub. This has the added benefit of allowing the paste to sit and soak into and around the teeth a bit longer, and that can only be a good thing.

I have also come to appreciate the stronger mint flavours when it comes to toothpastes, and I found this to be a bit milder than my preference. As this is the stronger of the two flavours to date, I doubt I will bother with the other one. I'd like to see a third, even stronger, flavour hit the market - a 'super mint' if you will - to give a bit of extra peace-of-mind and longer-lasting freshness. I suspect that may be a little while away, if at all, but one can but hope.

Overall, this is a bit of a godsend for me, and anyone else who suffers from bad breath that can't be halted short of full dental removal. The price is a little higher than the regular pastes, but well within range for a high-end toothpaste. I'm sold on it, and can't wait to see it rolled out into more stores. It's a bit slow to get traction - I can't find it at any local supermarkets yet - but in time I am certain it will go mainstream.

As a family, we try to be as environmentally aware as we can. We always actively try to find products which have little to no lasting effect on our environment, particularly our waterways. However, one thing which I will no compromise on is fluoride within a toothpaste. Knowing how important fluoride is to developing and maintaining the health of my family's teeth, I would never consider a toothpaste without it. Because of this, I have never before been able to use a 'natural' toothpaste, as nothing has contained fluoride. I was so excited to see this toothpaste appear on the market from Reach, as it looked like it would be perfect for my family.

One of the first things that we noticed about this tube of toothpaste was a great size. So often with more natural toothpastes there is a much smaller bottle on offer, but this one was a standard 120g size which makes it perfect for the family. Having read the packaging, I was excited to read that I could use it exactly as per my normal toothpaste, and also as per my usual toothpaste, it is not recommended for children under the age of six.

My hubby and I have been using the toothpaste for a week, and have been very happy with it. This fresh mint flavour is fantastic, not being to 'stingy' or astringent in the mouth, but still leaving a lasting fresh breath. The clean has been fantastic, equally as good as our standard toothpaste with our teeth feeling lovely and clean between brushes. We certainly haven't missed any of the other antibacterial ingredients normally contained within a toothpaste, and if anything, my breath and teeth feel cleaner than they did before.

Overall this is a fantastic fluoride toothpaste. Knowing that we are protecting our teeth, but not at the cost of our waterways is a really great feeling. We also love the clean and fresh feeling our mouth's now have. Try it, as you will not be disappointed.

Over the school holidays, I spent a couple of days with family members so I took the toothpaste along with me and left it in the bathroom, instructing everyone to use it so we could get a range of impressions. They took me at my word, and by the end of the second day I had plenty of useful comments. And there were some people with very fresh breath as well. Me too!

For Miss Eight, this was the first time she had used an "adult" toothpaste. She squeezed a little on to her toothbrush and immediately said it was too strong. We took most of the toothpaste off and left just a small amount on the bristles. This time she said it was perfect, just like peppermints (which she loves), and not strong at all. She continued to use it every time she brushed her teeth over the next few days, and told me she really liked the flavour. She also suggested that I record the fact that you don't need to use too much - which is useful because the tube will last longer.

Mr Ten was the next to try it. Having been forewarned by his sister, he squeezed out a very small amount - roughly the size of a dried pea - and said that it was strong enough for him. Any more would have been unpalatable. It was interesting that he liked it enough to go back to it the next time because he is choosy about flavours, and has been known to make a fuss when given something he does not enjoy.

My daughter was impressed by the packaging. Because the tube is designed to stand on end, the contents are easy to get out. Everyone in a family squeezes from a different part of the tube, and with some toothpastes that means there can be a lot of waste. This tube is constructed from a rigid plastic which does not go out of shape when squeezed, and because it needs firm handling you don't dispense too much at a time. The contents settle back into the lid area once the toothpaste is capped and put back on to the basin. The information on the outside of the tube is clear to read; there is no small print or non-essential wording.

The ingredients were also up to my daughter's standards. Although she did not recognise all the names - as she said, you would have to be a chemist to know all of them - she did spot the words "natural" (in a large font) and "fluoride" so was prepared to take the manufacturer's word for the purity of the rest of the product. She was interested to see that magnolia bark is one of the ingredients. This is also commonly used in chewing gum; it is the component that sweetens breath, and also helps to make the mouth really clean. In turn, this is bound to have a positive effect on oral health. And yes - she and my son-in-law liked it too!
