In the world of natural, fluoride free toothpaste - they are all pretty much the same, right? That's what I thought. Until I discovered Revitin. Most toothpastes, even 'natural' ones, contain detergents such as sodium lauryl sulphate. It's about the worst thing you can apply to your teeth because it prevents tooth remineralization, getting rid of all the good along with the bad in your mouth.
Revitin is great for kids because it is gentle and contains no fluoride. Revitin works with the natural 'good bacteria' in your mouth and prevents bad bacteria from taking hold.
As you can see, Revitin is actually brown in color, don't be alarmed! It's not created the same way as other toothpaste. It is full of minerals, vitamins, and homeopathic tissue salts in amounts high enough to actually benefit your teeth and gums for the short duration of time that you are brushing. I think it looks darker in the image above, in person it's more of a light beige.
I have to say I wasn't sure what to expect from this toothpaste, but I'm so glad we've tried it! I am in love with the clean feeling, even though it is different from what I'm used to - a good kind of different. It would be very hard to go back to something else, it just isn't the same. While I would wholeheartedly switch to Revitin, the price really stings. At over $26 with shipping for a 3.5 oz tube, it's just way over our 'toothpaste budget'. You do receive free shipping when you buy 3 or more, and you can buy 6 but pay for 5, but it is still way more than we can spend on toothpaste to be honest. I hope they do branch out to be available in more places, like Amazon. I'm just amazed that I woke up with no 'morning breath'! That alone to me is worth the price tag! I've never tried a toothpaste that can do that.
Baby E suffers from fluorosis, so we always get fluoride free toothpaste. She is not a fan of mint or strong flavors though, so Revitin is perfect for her. It has a pleasant taste and I don't have to worry about her ingesting some or not rinsing out completely. It's also the perfect first toothpaste to try with Baby T when his teeth come in. He got his first tooth this past weekend, we are so excited!
I highly recommend trying Revitin. It's great for anyone, and especially those with sensitive gums and mouths - if you suffer from canker sores, you must try this. I've read many reviews from people whom this has helped. Come to think of it, Baby E has canker sores very often and I hope in the long term this will help prevent them. It's also great for chemotherapy patients since one of the side-effects of radiation is mouth sores.
I just love having the opportunity to try innovative products like this, so that when I meet someone who is looking for a solution to a problem - I have an answer!
