Jan/Feb Meet the Maker: Davids Natural Toothpaste
What can surprisingly give us a jolt of energy after waking up is brushing our teeth. It’s a simple yet necessary daily ritual for a healthy lifestyle (and appreciated by people around us). Featured in our January/February 2017 “Awake” box is David’s Natural Toothpaste. I’ve been using it ever since I got my box (same for Cathy and Adam!). The mint flavor isn’t as strong as other brands, which makes it gentle but still refreshing. Davids uses natural ingredients that are effective in keeping our mouths clean and it also commits to being environmentally sustainable!
So, how did Davids began? It started in 2011 with Eric David Buss, who was curious about the ingredients being used in the “natural” toothpaste he used. After learning about its unhealthy ingredients and not being able to find a health-friendly toothpaste, he decided to pursue creating his own. Deep research and constant tests with industry experts helped find and formulate the best natural ingredients that would be effective in removing plaque, whiten teeth, and freshen breath. The brand also commits to being true to using premium USA origin ingredients in their effort to sustain American jobs.
The toothpaste itself is fluoride-free, sulfate-free, and is without artificial flavors, colors, nor preservatives. The toothpaste also does not compromise on the fresh, minty breath. Just The mint flavor is custom-blend flavoring, using original mint oil from U.S. farms. When you received your Davids Natural Toothpaste, it came in a carton box that is FSC certified and made with 100% wind energy. “With Davids commitment to environmental sustainability, our paperboard packaging only comes from forests protected and managed by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)... This use of wind as a renewable energy reduces an estimated 4,199,796 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually. The greenhouse gas equivalency: comparable to taking 364 personal vehicles off the road per year” (Davids Natural Toothpaste, Our Toothpaste).
