I am SO glad to find wintergreen flavored toothpaste with NO flouride!! that stuff will kill you! There is NO reason flouride should be in ANY toothpaste. The FDA won;t even approve it so I will be darned if I put it in my kids mouth especially when even the EPA states it a skull and crossbones poison!!!

NO FOURIDE for this family! We have been flouride free for years in our toothpaste and we have no flouride in our well water, and guess what? My kids are 8 and 10 and neither of them have cavities.

Tom's of Maine Natural Sensitive toothpaste in Wintergreen flavor has been my family's favorite toothpaste since we discovered it about 10 years ago. Unfortunately, Colgate, who bought a controlling interest in the company in 2006, has changed the ingredients. While the UPC is the same and the toothpaste does clean our teeth, the ingredients list that used to list "wintergreen, peppermint, and other natural flavors," now says "Aloe barbadensis leaf juice" and "natural flavors." The result is a flavor akin to cheap candy, rather than a rich naturally minty flavor.
I contacted Tom's, aka Colgate, about our dissatisfaction and their customer service representative was understanding and offered to replace the toothpaste. Sadly, though, he said they will not be changing back to the former natural flavors.
Tom & Kate, we miss you!

    Comments about Tom's of Maine Sensitive Fluoride-Free Natural Toothpaste, Wintermint, 4 oz:

    I LOVE Tom's. It is the only toothpaste that I have found that I like, that does the job (sensitive-wise)and, is as natural and fluoride-free as you can get but, the sorbitol worries me. Lately, the medical community is reporting that fake sugars are not good for our bodies. I've believed this for years. The only plus I see here is that you don't swallow this stuff. However, the mouth is known as the direct blood/brain connection and that connection worries me. I would be VERY happy if Tom's used a small amount of real sugar instead.

        Comments about Tom's of Maine Sensitive Fluoride-Free Natural Toothpaste, Wintermint, 4 oz:

        We have used Tom's of Maine toothpaste products for years. We wanted a cruelty-free product that was pleasant tasting and effective. I consistently get good dental check- ups and recently started using the sensitive formula as I am developing an issue with sensitivity. It does not keep me from occasional sensitivity but has greatly decreased the problem. I will continue to use it.

          This Company is to be praised. GREAT Practices! No animal, no artificals, ingredient sources, sustainable and recycling. I think there is nothing wrong with flouride. With that said 2-4 times a year at the dentist is fine with me. BUT, Twice a day 365 is not for my family. Everyone has a choice. I BUY TOM'S! Thank you Tom's great work.

            In the first place, this is fluoride-free. In the other first place, it helps my sensitive teeth immensely! It's a win-win situation :)

            This is the only brand I use. Until they quit making Cavity Protection Wintermint flavor. I have had to switch to Sensitive Wintermint which does not make me happy but as long as they continue to make the Wintermint flavor I will be happy. I like this flavor out of necessity because it's the only one that doesn't break out my mouth. My allergist recommended it to me many years ago.

              Could not find this locally so decided to give it a try as I've tired other brands for sensitive teeth which always left my teeth and mouth feeling overly zinged by the ingredients. I was very pleasantly surprised from the moment I tried it Tom's. Not harsh, very gentle and very good flavor. It really felt like a "natural" product opposed to being filled with chemicals.

                  I love the taste! Not too minty! I am a "health nut" from the 70's (when healthy and recycling was considered strange behavior) and LOVE the example of Tom's to be as natural and responsible as possible in this day and age. I was having trouble with my thyroid. Dry, flaky skin, lack-luster, thinning hair and brittle nails. (Along with weight gain.) I found after doing some detective work that one of the biggest problems for many people world-wide is the lack of Iodine in our diets and that fluoride will leach Iodine from our bodies. This is a real problem since our bodies and especially our thyroid needs Iodine to work properly. I went looking and found Tom's! Thank you! Thank you! I will use this toothpaste for the rest of my life. I do take an Iodine/Iodide supplement but, Tom's has REALLY helped make a difference.
