Does anyone use a mild mint toothpaste with no artificial sweetners in?

As DH has announced that's why I'm not as well as I might be......I am known for my extreme reaction to even small amounts

& I can't take a strong/sharp mint as my mouth stings

Any suggestions?

What about the childsmile or colgate kids toothpastes?

The childsmile toothpaste is sandersons ohp

Not mint but fennel, it's mild, Kingfisher from Holland and Barrett.

I use Taylor's 29 Grapefruit and Mint it's really subtle.
I got it as a sample once and it's stuck, it's a bit pricey though and I order it online with Amazon about £4-5.

It doesn't contain any artificial flavours, sweeteners or parabens and a bunch of other stuff.

We use Crest (it’s the only toothpaste acceptable to laddo) but it’s got sorbitol in.

The taylors has Xylitol in sadly

The kingfisher one might be OK - I'll see if I can find that one

& sandersons ohp has 2 types in

Thanks at least I have a start

The kingfisher one is fluoride free

Vitalogy Fri 20-Apr-18 21:33:50

The Kingfisher toothpaste is available with and without fluoride.

Colgate Cavity Protection, the basic Colgate toothpaste.

Not sure if it is mint flavoured:

SargeantAngua Fri 20-Apr-18 23:53:36

That Colgate cavity protection one has the sweetener sodium saccharin in.

Hi, we use the green people organic children one - no nasties, gentle taste and our dentist says the kids teeth (at least!) are perfect smile
It is fluoride free though as an FYI.

KatyMac Sat 21-Apr-18 08:53:21

I think I want one with flouride really

Who'd have thought it would be so hard

x2boys Sat 21-Apr-18 08:57:09

Ora nurse of Amazon is tasteless and foamless?

KatyMac Sat 21-Apr-18 08:58:40

It has sorbitol in - but thanks

stargirl1701 Sat 21-Apr-18 09:08:53

I use Kingfisher mint with fluoride.

Try Toms of Maine. Some of things heir children's toothpastes don't have artificial sweeteners.
Have you spoken to your doctor about allergy testing if you're unwell?
Activated charcoal is another tooth rushing option. Messy though.

GP is less than helpful - I am intolerant to Milk, eggs, soya and have extreme reactions to coconut & almond (& artificial Sweetners) but they aren't allergies apparently

They suggested I did FODMAP which I did but I can't get beyond red meat, chicken and root veggies without a reaction so that's all they can do

My consultant diagnosed me with a 'very fast transit time' and didn't seem to understand when I said that was a symptom not a diagnosis

to be fair I am getting better, however after so long I am terrified of trying things & I reckon my anxiety about eating is worse than anything

i bought the kingfisher mint with flouride: bit of an odd taste but we will see how it goes

stargirl1701 Sun 22-Apr-18 15:25:48

It takes a while to get used no foam.

I think it's like toothpaste used to be in the 70s before stripes were invented
