Gianne’s Wellness Pick: Davids Toothpaste
Since founding WELL Summit, I’ve become a bit of a wellness product junkie. Organic mattress: Check. Squatty potty: Check. Matcha latte: Check. You can’t tell me I’m not living that wellness life!
One perk of my job is that our team is always researching and connecting with amazing brands to feature on WELL Insiders and to showcase in WELL Summit’s marketplace. Between the fantastic WELL Summit partners’ products we get to test and the stocked gift bags I receive from my speaking engagements, I get to try out a lot of wellness products. New products. Not yet released products. Products with a cult following. My goal is to do the detective work (lots of trial and error) to find that brands that are easy-to-use, trustworthy, and help me (and you) get closer to the goal of 360-degree wellness in my everyday life.
I’m always getting asked what I use in my personal routine, or what new brand my friends should know about—and that’s how we brainstormed this latest series, where I’ll be sharing my top wellness pick once a week. Not only will I share a personal, tried-and-true favorite, but I’ll also tell you a bit about the brand (so many wellness brands are started out of the founder’s passion) and give you details on why it might be a good fit for you. Think of this column as our chance to have a girl’s night together. So, keep reading (and bookmark this page!) for my Wellness Pick of the Week!
I had no idea that toothpaste, of all things, had some bad-for-you ingredients in it. I guess the “Dangerous If Swallowed” warning on the toothpaste boxes should have tipped me off. I never really paid attention though.
But now I do know: Conventional toothpastes can contain not-so-great-for-you ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) or sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES). There’s also a bit of a debate around fluoride, and its benefits vs. its side effects. All that and more is one of the reasons I went natural with my toothpaste. And Davids Toothpaste was the first clean, natural toothpaste I enjoyed using.
Quite a few of the other natural toothpaste brands had a chalky feeling to them that grossed me out. I love the minty taste of Davids, which comes from the carefully selected ultra premium mint oil from the Pacific Northwest. I also like that the formula is free from artificial flavors, artificial colors and artificial sweeteners. It’s vegan, cruelty free, EWG VERIFIED, sulfate/fluoride free, and 98 percent of its ingredients are sourced from the United States.
I also like that each Davids Toothpaste comes with key to help you advance the chic metal tube, so I’m not wasting any of the delicious, minty toothpaste. Here’s to fresh, natural breath!
