  1. The website says it’s “wild mint flavored”. Which I would prefer to no flavor but above you said they weren’t flavored??

    1. Hi, Emily: They are flavored with essential oils only that are listed in the ingredients. No flavors as a mixture of undisclosed ingredients. Thank you for asking. ~Irina

  2. This is really interesting because I’ve recently tried and become very curious about toothpaste with hydroxyapatite. I purchased a tube of CariFree CTx4 Gel 1100 from Amazon. It’s a bit more expensive than I’d like. It also does have flouride, which my dentist told me I should use, but the thing that’s curious to me is that it says nano hydroxyapatite. I know nano particles are a bit controversial, and should be avoided in sunscreen, as well as any powder that could be inhaled, etc. Do you know if the hydroxyapatite in the toothpaste you’re suggesting here is small enough to be considered nano, and what do you think about that?

    1. Hi, Matt: The size of the particles of RiseWell hydroxyapatite is more than 5 micron. 5 microns are 5,000 nm and to be considered nano, it has to be 100 nm. Does it make sense? ~Irina

      1. Matthew Squicciarini says:

        Yes, thank you. That was a very quick answer! Do you think that the use of nano particles in this case could be beneficial, is it definitely unsafe, or do we not really know enough about it for it to be considered safe or unsafe?

      2. I’m confused – if it has to be 100 nm to be considered nano, and the Risewell particles are 5,000 nm – doesn’t that make them nano particles vs non-nano particles?

        1. Hi, Teri: 5,000 is bigger than 100, which means that Risewell particles are much bigger than 100 to be considered nano. Nano means very small, 100 nm or smaller. does it make sense? ~Irina

  3. Hello,
    Just FYI: I tried the IREAD10 code on my Risewell checkout page (for the toothpaste), a few minutes ago and got “Unable to find a valid discount matching the code entered”.
    I will try again in a day or so.

    1. Sorry to hear that. It worked for many other people. Could you email me a screenshot of the error and of where you’re entering the code? I can email you my screenshot as well. Thank you! My email address is irina “at” ~Irina

      1. The promo code did not work for me as well! Is there another one I can try?
        Thank you,

        1. Hi, Megan: if you chose a subscription, the discount code won’t work. Otherwise, it should work. You can email me a screenshot of where you enter the code so I can help you troubleshoot. My email address is irina at Thank you.

  5. Hi Irina,
    We have been using a similar toothpaste from Boka. What is your opinion on it’s ingredients?

  7. HI, I absolutely love the sound of this. Do you know if I can get this delivered to the UK and if not what is the best alternative i can buy here?

    1. Hi, Claire: I don’t think they ship to the UK. I do evaluate UK products in private consultations though. ~Irina

  8. Thx for this article! Is there any risk of lead in Hydroxyapatite toothpastes that you know of? I use Risewell for my 2.5 year old but she loves the flavor so much we are having trouble teaching her to spit out out 🤪

    1. Hi, Janie: I have not found any information that hydroxyapatite is a concern for lead contamination. ~Irina
