    1. Hi Dawn! There is no code anymore. This post is waiting for its turn to be updated. Thank you for drawing this to our attention!

  1. I took Irina’s suggestion about the Essential Oxygen toothpaste a few months ago and I’ve never looked back! I have really, really bad gum recession (like really bad). I have always used Sensodyne (out of necessity) for my sensitive teeth, but eventually just applying the Sensodyne to my teeth hurt (literally, just putting it on my teeth cause pain). I have had ZERO pain or sensitivity using the Essential Oxygen toothpaste. I love, love, love the Essential Oxygen toothpaste! I have NEVER found anything that cleans my teeth so well. I can’t believe it. I have been using it for months and have no issues.

  2. I ‘ve used for 2 months I like it .Great tasting , whitening with natural ingredients No sodium lauryl sulfate or fluoride.
    I ordered BR organic toothpaste and would like to try and compare with Davis.

    Thank you

    1. It looks like a good one. I do not see any concerning ingredients in it. Where do you buy it? How long have you been using it? What do you like about it? Thank you, Eli! ~Irina

        1. Hi, Jamie: from a quick look, I do not see any red flags. I believe I tried it a few years ago and did not like its texture. It did not seem to clean my teeth well. Let me know what you think if you try it. ~Irina

  3. Have you tried Radius? It’s a coconut oil organic toothpaste. They are available in Wholefoods and some natural online shop.

    1. No, I have not. I have seen Radius in our local health food store. They look good. Is it what you use? How do you like their toothpaste? Have a nice weekend! ~Irina

      1. Yes that’s what I’m using now. I started with their floss first which is good then I discover they also have toothpaste (also has one for kids). I looked at the ingredients, seems ok to me haha. I need few days to adjust to the texture and smell, but otherwise I have no problem. They aren’t as smooth as traditional toothpaste but once you get used to it, it’s fine.

  4. Have you heard of Apagard Toothpaste produced by Sangi Co. out of Japan? It has components that are said to remineralize your teeth. Might you be able to do a write up/review of it? It seems to be a very popular toothpaste on Amazon.

    Thanks for your work,


  5. Thanks for your reply Irina. I can appreciate you giving us the reason you assume that causes their deficiency but that does not change the FACT that they are deficient in their operations. We know everything in life has a cause but personally I’m not interested in the causes but the solutions and the clear understanding of what I need to keep away from to protect my health. And as we can see they are deficient in this critical department providing no help whatsoever and making us to want to keep away from their product.

    Having been an owner of a business myself I always say if you have something good and/or unique and beneficial in your products it will be all over the package in big red letters but if you have to hunt all over a package to find something BE SURE they are hiding something or do not have what you are looking for. Take sugar for example. Some people call it over 30 different names in the hope the user will never recognize that its SUGAR! To me that is a criminal offense trying to deceive the uninformed public and maybe even create a problem for a diabetic. The law should be more strict in this area. In any case I will stay away from their products until they can be more transparent in their ingredients and product overall.

    PS: you say slow responsiveness but they never gave you the answer you had to figure it out from your analysis.

    1. Hi, James: Essential Oxygen just reported that INCI names are on the new packaging and added the screenshot of the new packaging to the post. They will be updating their website, too. Please take a look. Thank you. ~Irina

  6. Hi Irina,

    What is your opinion of using a mix of coconut oil, baking soda & peppermint oil as toothpaste?

    Thank you!

  7. I use Life Extension tooth paste . Have you heard of it? It has only beneficial ingredients.
    I’m surprised in your analysis of Guar. you say its listed on the package as organic. Isn’t the whole toothpaste certified organic (all its ingredients) organic? Also if you are talking to the company on your analysis can they just give you a straight answer of which Guar they are using? I thought this is what you do by reviewing the product for us. I find it very deceiving that they do not use the standard INCI names. It seems like an immediate red flag. Why would they do this? Why would they not identify the organic products being used in their website.

    For me there are too many red flags to use this company for any products they make. They seem to have a hidden agenda. I like TOTAL TRANSPARENCY in a company. Not having to guess or get information like pulling teeth.

    You do a great job for us revealing all these facts and its up to us to interpret them correctly. Just knowing they did not give you the info on Guar and you had to guess at which one they are in fact using is enough to stay away!
    Again thanks for your good job. Also there are many other good organic toothpastes out there you may want to analyze. I understand there a re too many but i would look into the one Life Extension has they are total Transparent about their products and even have professional health technicians and even doctors that would explain to you any doubts.

    1. Thanks, James. In this case, I was not as picky as I had the benefit of the box and the USDA certified organic seal. In order to receive the organic certification, at least 95% of ingredients have to be organic, not 100%. I believe the reason of their slow responsiveness is that Essential Oxygen did not dedicate enough resources to customer service and the CEO was unavailable to fulfill the lack of customer service. ~Irina

  8. Thank you, Irina! I emailed them to confirm that this is safe for crowns before I ordered and it is. This is a great toothpaste and, compared to what I’ve paid for others so far, a great price for the quality. I found it a struggle to get Dr. Bronner’s out of the tube. I really appreciate all the work you do for us!

  9. Hi, Irina

    Have you tried Vermont Soap Extra Strength Neem Toothsalt? The ingredients are: Sea Salt (Sodium Chloride), USP Sodium Bicarbonate (Sodium Bicarbonate), 5% Organic Neem Leaf (Azadirachta indica), Peppermint Oil (Mentha Piperita). I’ve been using it for a long time and really like it.


      1. It’s a powder. I think you’re supposed to sprinkle it on your toothbrush from a hole in the cap, but I just take the cap off, dump some in my hand, and pick it up easily with a wet toothbrush. They have some other products I love, like their Unscented Foaming Hand Soap and their Pet Shampoo.

  10. What do you think about this toothpaste for children? I have a 4 and 2 yo and would like to find something they will tolerate. Thanks!

  11. I have been using Dr. Brite, toothpaste and mouthwash! I like it quite well! Have you heard of this product?

      1. I have had great results with BR Essential Oxygen toothpaste. I have had super sensitive teeth for years, and this does wonders for the sensitivity. Way better than Sensodyne! I started getting mild yellowness from my daily coffee, so I started adding the BR polish powder twice a day, which solved the problem but continued the good results for my sensitivity.
