Review: Dentisse Natural Reflection Toothpaste

In honor of the new Eco-dentistry badge on Practically Green, I decided to do a review of my current toothpaste! For the past few weeks I've been using Dentisse Natural Reflection.

Pros                                                                              Cons              
-Effective                                                                     -Not reviewed by EWG 
-No alcohol, preservatives, or synthetic ingredients          -Contains palm kernal oil
-Made in the U.S.                                                         -Moderate price range ($17)
                                                                                  -Not available at standard drug stores.

Conclusion: I really like this product and the way it makes my teeth feel, but I originally got it as a free sample - which is good because Dentisse is a bit pricey for a toothpaste! That being said, I probably will not buy this product again since Tom's of Maine toothpastes are a whopping $7.00 cheaper on average, and are rated a 0 on the EWG Skindeep Database. Its too bad, because other than the price and the lack of third party information on Dentisse, I really like it!


  1. Naturally made toothpaste is also better because it contains more mint oil than commercial toothpaste. Mint oil is the best ingredient for killing the bacteria in your mouth. Killing these bacteria is extremely important, because the bacteria are what cause gingivitis and bad breath.
