Kingfisher toothpaste is one of my favourite natural toothpastes – it foams just like any regular toothpaste, cleans teeth perfectly and gives me nice fresh smelling breath afterwards. Without a doubt, for me, this is the best natural toothpaste!
So, if you haven’t tried any of Kingfisher toothpastes yet, in this review, you will find out everything you need to know – about the brand, ingredients and why I like their toothpaste so much.
But first of all, if it’s important for you to use fluoride-free toothpaste, keep in mind that not all Kingfisher toothpastes are fluoride-free. Some contain fluoride, some don’t. I only use fluoride-free toothpastes.
Secondly, Kingfisher offer a variety of flavours for their toothpastes such as Mint, Fennel and Aloe Vera & Tea Tree. I normally use Mint but I also like the Fennel one which is a nice flavour if you don’t like mint.
Kingfisher is a leading natural toothpaste brand in the UK and has received the important approval of the British Dental Health Foundation. The brand has been making natural toothpaste since 1988.
Kingfisher don’t test on animals and use ingredients such as artificial flavourings, sweeteners, preservatives or whiteners. Instead, they use natural ingredients and essential oils such as mint, lemon and tea tree. For teeth whitening effect they add silica which is a type of mineral found in nature and acts as a mild abrasive.
You won’t find any animal products in Kingfisher toothpastes which means they are suitable for vegans.
More about the ingredients in Kingfisher toothpaste
The ingredients in Kingfisher toothpastes vary slightly, depending on the flavour and whether the fluoride has been added or not.
Here is how the most popular flavours compare in terms of the ingredients:
|Mint fluoride-free||calcium carbonate, glycerin, aqua (purified water), sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, hydrated silica, cellulose gum, mentha piperita, citrus limonum, foeniculum vulgare, limonene|
|Mint with fluoride||calcium carbonate, glycerin, aqua (purified water), sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, hydrated silica, cellulose gum, sodium monofluorophosphate, mentha piperita, citrus limonum, foeniculum vulgare, limonene|
|Fennel fluoride-free||calcium carbonate, glycerin, aqua (purified water), sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, hydrated silica, cellulose gum, foeniculum vulgare, anethole, limonene|
|Fennel with fluoride||calcium carbonate, glycerin, aqua (purified water), sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, hydrated silica, cellulose gum, sodium monofluorophosphate, foeniculum vulgare, anethole, limonene|
As you will see from the table above, the basic ingredients in all Kingfisher toothpastes are the same – what changes is just the type of essential oil they use and the fluoride content.
The common ingredients have the following functions:
- Calcium carbonate (chalk) – gentle abrasive
- Glycerin – moisture retention
- Aqua (purified water) – moisture
- Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate (based on palm oil) – dispersant
- Hydrated silica – structuring agent
- Cellulose gum – thickener
- Essential oils – for fresh taste and flavouring
My experience with Kingfisher toothpastes is only positive. The foaming is great despite natural ingredients and I use the same amount of toothpaste as I would normally use. My teeth are left clean and mouth smelling fresh. I have no complaints about this toothpaste whatsover.
I prefer the Mint flavour but I’ve tried the Fennel and Aloe Vera versions as well which are also good.
In terms of price, I found Kingfisher toothpastes cheaper than some other natural toothpastes so I have no complaints about that at all.
So all in all, I highly recommend Kingfisher natural toothpaste. If you try it, you definitely won’t regret it.
