I think it is important to use naturally friendly products whenever possible. This is especially true for products the whole family uses like toothpaste. I was recently approached by a company called Hello Products that asked if I would be interested in trying out their products. I had already been doing a bit of research on oral care products and knew I wanted to make the switch to a product that was a bit more natural, so the request couldn’t have had more perfect timing. The box arrived and I was immediately intrigued by what types of oral care products that they provide.
First of all, let’s talk toothpaste. Toothpaste is one of those products that you and your family uses every-single-day. I think it is important that the product you choose to use not only be a great personal fit but also something that is enjoyable to use. This is especially true for kids. When it comes time to brush their teeth it is also a lot more helpful when the product is fun to use. I love that Hello Products has a great assortment of toothpaste for kids in non traditional flavors like blue raspberry and bubble gum. For those of you looking for flouride-free toothpaste options, Hello Products has that too. They offer flouride and sls free toothpaste in natural sweet mint adults will love and even a natural watermelon flavor for kids.
What makes Hello Products different from other oral care products on the market? Hello Products are naturally friendly meaning they contain no artificial sweeteners, no preservatives, no dyes, no microbeads, and no triclosan. I don’t know why that stuff is in traditional toothpaste but I’m thankful for Hello Products for keeping their products as natural as possible.
Besides naturally friendly toothpaste, Hello products also offers breath sprays and toothbrushes as well. The breath sprays are so adorable and easy to throw in any bag or pocket. They contain no alcohol or dyes and they are enjoyable to use. A simple spray freshens your breath until you are able to brush. Their toothbrushes are made with 50% recycled materials. You should be replacing your toothbrush every few months, so why not replace it with something that is a little more environmentally friendly.
Every aspect of a Hello product has been carefully thought of even right down to the packaging. Did you know that their toothpaste tubes are BPA-free and contain no phalates? Also, their products are never tested on animals. They are vegan and leaping bunny certified. Their products are globally sourced and made in the USA. The packaging their toothpaste comes in is 100% recyclable paperboard and printed with soy inks.
Switching the products that my family uses on a daily bases to something like Hello products makes me feel good. If you are also looking to make the switch to more natural products, I encourage you to do a lot of research and start small. The next time you need to repurchase a product that you use everyday like toothpaste, instead of picking something filled with a bunch of questionable chemicals, pick a product that contains natural ingredients. Read the labels on everything. Eventually these little exchanges over time will add up in a big way.
