I can’t tell you how excited we are about this new Supercritical Neem Toothpaste — it’s been a long time coming but well worth the wait! We had the opportunity to work with the world’s best formulator and manufacturer of neem products, and challenged them to make the best neem toothpaste ever. The result is amazing. It’s free of all the yucky things found in most toothpaste – fluoride, sulfates, gluten and artificial flavors or colors. Instead, it’s packed with neem and other herbs that have been used for centuries for beautiful teeth and healthy gums.
- Neem, of course, is the most important ingredient. We’ve used supercritical extracts of both the leaf and bark in concentrations as strong as we could get without totally overpowering the taste. It’s so concentrated that the toothpaste is brown instead of brilliantly white.
- Peppermint, cloves and licorice also are important in traditional medicine, but using them makes our toothpaste taste great too.
- Ayurvedic herbs like amla, herda, baheda and guggul reflect India’s 5,000-year history of herbal medicine; international researchers are beginning to document that traditional use.
- It’s sweetened with a tiny bit of stevia extract, so nothing artificial there either!
The amazing team behind this new product includes Autumn Blum and Girish Soman. If you’ve been a neem fan for very long, you’ve probably heard of Autumn. She started TheraNeem right about the same time we started Neem Tree Farms and we were happy “co-opetition” for many years. She sold TheraNeem to a major publicly-held corporation and later started Stream2Sea to formulate and manufacture reef-safe sunscreen. Of course, she still loves neem so she’s updated the formulas on our lotion, shampoo, conditioner and soap and is manufacturing them in her FDA-approved facility just down the road from us in Florida.
Girish has more than 30 years of experience in agriculture and Ayurveda, specifically focused on reclaiming the lost legacy of botanical medicines. His companies, including Nisarga Herbs and NuAxon Research, are leading in both technologies and research focused on creating cost-effective supplements. (Girish and his team also are the brains behind our Six-Way Neem Capsules.)
Vicki and Autumn got “advance” copies on the toothpaste and even after more than 20 years of formulating and marketing neem, we’re both amazed at how effective it is and how good it tastes with all those herbs. We’re actually looking forward to our next trip to the dentist to see if they can tell the difference too.
Please let us know what you think, and we’ll keep you updated on our dentist visits.
