I really like Weleda’s Natural Toothpaste. I know, I know, you’re probably wondering why there’s salt in the toothpaste, and to be honest it does have a slight salty taste to it mixed with peppermint. It does have somewhat of a grittiness taste to it, but I became accustomed to the taste and grittiness very quickly and now I really like it. If that’s not for you, then they have a Plant Gel Toothpaste as well. Welda has a lot of different natural products and is very reputable brand. I have some tooth sensitivity and this toothpaste has help with that, so it’s perfect for me!
What I like:
- No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
- Fluoride Free
- Good option for sensitive teeth
- Makes your teeth feel clean
- Tiny salt crystals in the toothpaste give an exfoliating feeling
- Weleda natural toothpaste offers other natural products such as:
- Natural Toothpaste for children
- Travel size toothpaste
- Plant Gel Toothpaste if you don’t like the salt version
What I don’t like:
- Some dislike the grittiness taste with the salt crystals (Salt version only)
- It’s an acquired taste with the salt and peppermint combination
- Higher cost compared to other offerings
Where to buy Weleda Natural Toothpaste:
My First Impressions:
Weleda has done a nice job with the packaging with its blue and white packaging. The tube seems more substantial than a national brand name toothpaste.
Weleda natural toothpaste is made in Germany and I actually think it’s pretty cool they have multiple languages on the tube: English, Italian and French.
This is the most attractive looking toothpaste, but honestly, if it works, that’s what I care about. It has a orange-brown look to it and it holds its form well. Smelling it definitely smells like peppermint, which I like.
The first taste of the toothpaste does have a salty taste to it. It’s a little odd at first because you don’t expect a salty taste in a toothpaste. After about 5 seconds the salty taste seemingly goes away. Despite having a pretty strong peppermint smell, it’s not an overpowering taste. The salt and peppermint combo takes a little bit of time getting used to. The one thing I find different about this toothpaste is that it seems to become very liquidly after brushing for even a very short time. Habitually when I brush my teeth I start with my bottom teeth, but with this toothpaste I actually start on the top to make sure I can get enough toothpaste up there. Since the toothpaste doesn’t foam up like a national brand name toothpaste does, sometimes I feel like I am drooling toothpaste out of my mouth when brushing (nice image, right?!) This sounds dumb, but I have to be conscientious about keeping my chin up while brushing.
My Long Term Update:
I’ve been using Weleda’s toothpaste for a while and I’m continuing to really like it. The salt and peppermint took about five days to get used to, but now it’s a taste that I like. I enjoy the hint of salt with the first taste and then have it transition to more of a peppermint taste. I’ve also noticed that this toothpaste has helped with some tooth sensitivity. Yes, I still have some, but it’s not nearly as sensitive as it was prior to using Weleda.
My Final Thoughts:
Weleda’s natural toothpaste is definitely one of my favorites. It has all the right ingredients you’d want in a natural toothpaste, it has a taste I come to like, and it’s helped some with tooth sensitivity. What more could you ask for?
