Schmidt's Wondermint Toothpaste
Schmidt’s was found in 2010 as the answer to natural deodorant. But since then, the company grows and, as you see, offers a wide variety of products, including natural toothpaste.
Schmidt’s raised a natural bar to a high level. The company has many certificates including, natural, vegan, and cruelty-free. Above all, they always include a complete list of ingredients on their products, so you always know what you are using. On Schmidt’s products, you can see the Ecocert logo that proves that product is natural. Many other companies use the word natural in the title, but that is just a marketing trick since the word natural is not regulated, and it can be used in many scenarios.
Wondermint is Refreshing
Wondermint main ingredients are giving a refreshing mint feeling after each brushing. With lots of extracted oils, juice, and powders, this toothpaste is healthy for your teeth and gums. From other stuff on the ingredient list, I can’t say much. Most of them are standard parts of natural toothpaste, while some of them are pretty new in the natural toothpaste formula. One of them is Goji Berry. I know these berries are healthy and are used in other products as the valuable part that improves health. But I never saw these berries in toothpaste before. That is a considerable advantage and innovation that can really make a difference.
Another exciting ingredient is Magnolia Acuminata Bark Extract. This ingredient works as an anxiolytic and sedative if you use it for sleeping. However, it has anti-inflammatory properties in toothpaste, which helps with swollen gums and other similar problems.
I am not sure if vitamins are essential in dental hygiene since I am not a dentist nor an expert, but I am sure there are no harmful ingredients. Coenzyme Q10, known as ubiquinone, is an antioxidant that prevents cell damage. In other words, this vitamin can prevent some problems with gums and teeth.
Vitamin E, or so-called Tocopherols, is another antioxidant that can also prevent many teeth problems. In Wondermint, it is derived from sunflower seed, so it is an entirely natural ingredient.
Glycerin, xylitol, calcium carbonate, hydrated silica, and other well-known ingredients are nothing new in toothpaste. I know some of them we don’t really like to see in the toothpaste since they are on edge, and the question is if they are really needed in a toothpaste.
I know it is better than sodium fluoride, but the question is if this ingredient is needed in a toothpaste. It most probably is required in order to give a paste feeling when brushing a teeth and in that way promote a better cleaning, but other than that, I really don’t know its purpose in a toothpaste.
Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate
Well, it is not SLS; I can say that. But this naturally derived compound from coconut is SLS substitution. So far, there are no adverse side effects or any studies that say that this ingredient is harmful. And the real question is why other toothpaste companies don’t ditch SLS, which is proven to be at least a questionable ingredient in all cosmetics, not only toothpaste.
Wondermint is definitely natural toothpaste that can really help with teeth and gums. With lots of exciting and healthy ingredients, you can cure and prevent tooth problems. All in all, this product is certified as natural, so you can be sure that it has passed all tests that need to be pass to be certified with a natural logo. Not like some other toothpaste that uses natural in their title, but they never even get near the natural certificate.
