Halos N Horns Toothy Fruity Toothpaste Review

I recently got a tube of Halos N Horns Toothy Fruity Toothpaste to try with my 19 month old twins.

This is a product that I have not previously heard of but was immediately drawn to it thanks to the funky logo and colourful design on the tube. It certainly stands out and makes you look!

The tube is a practical stand up tube which stops the annoying times when the toothpaste gets stuck at the end!

It has a handy, easy open flip top that can easily be opened one handed. This makes life that little bit easier during the morning rush getting the children ready!
 

The twins, who often curl their noses up at minty toothpaste, love the fruity flavour of Halo N Horns Toothy Fruity. Once I have brushed their teeth I let them chew on the toothbrush and have a go at brushing themselves. Thanks to the lovely fresh fruity flavour getting the toothbrushes back from them has become a battle! They love brushing their teeth!

I noticed on the front it says that it is SLS Free. This is something that I have never heard of. I read on that back of the tube what SLS actually is, SLS is Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. I wasn’t too sure what it was for and what, if any, are the benefits of it so I decided to do some research.

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is a synthetic detergent, or cleaning agent, and surfactant, which means it makes bubbles. I was shocked to read that it is used in industrial products such as car wash soap and floor cleaners! SLS is also an ingredient in a range of personal care products such as soaps, shampoos and toothpastes! Straight away this caused me concern as toddlers and babies do not understand that they cannot swallow toothpaste. SLS is added to soaps, bubble baths and toothpastes for its thickening effect and its ability to create bubbles. Knowing that Halo N Horns toothpaste does not contain this ingredient has won me over! Just because a product makes bubbles does not mean it works any better. Halos N Horns Toothy Fruity toothpaste also contains 1450ppmF (Parts per million Fluoride) so you know that their teeth are getting the protection that is needed.

I had a look at Halos N Horns website, which I easily found, and was excited to see that they have a wide range of children’s toiletries which I will be keen to look at in the future. I have also found which shops and supermarkets stock their products so I now know where I need to be looking. Their website has a section which explains what “nasties” have been removed. It is so refreshing to find a brand which tells us why certain chemicals, that are often used, are not too good for our little ones!

Our verdict:

Halos N Horns Toothy Fruity Toothpaste gets huge thumbs up from us! Thanks to reading the back of the tube I have done research and will now only buy toothpaste which is SLS free! The price, £2.34, is a little bit more than other children’s toothpaste but I honestly do believe that it is worth paying a bit more to have a SLS free toothpaste.

Halos N Horns is a brand that was new to me but after researching further it is, now a brand which I will trust!

  2. I stumbled upon your site while looking for the best whitening toothpaste in the market. While reading it and realizing about SLS in toothpastes, makes me feel worried as it is mostly the main component of all beauty/hygiene products which are out in the market. I am even pondering about using DIY shampoos as well as toothpaste to get environmental friendly as well. Thank you for this post!
