Redmond Earthpaste – Why I made the switch to non-toxic toothpaste and other chemical free personal care products. What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in our bodies.
WHY NON-TOXIC PRODUCTS MATTER
If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know I’m on a mission to create a non-toxic chemical free home for myself, Jon, the kids, and the fur babies. From eliminating all single use plastic to replacing plastic food storage containers with glass ones, to safer skincare, chemical free cleaning products and laundry products – every little bit helps.
It’s not always easy to find all natural household and personal care items. So many products that we interact with on a daily basis affect are causing a silent, but negative impact on our overall health and wellness. Toxins in common, everyday personal care products can disrupt our hormones, affecting everything from how our thyroid functions to whether or not we’re able to lose excess weight.
To me, eating healthy goes hand in hand with using products that are better for my body, made with limited ingredients and no additives. I’m always on the hunt for all natural products, especially ones that are chemical-free, which is why I’m happy to share one of my favorite non-toxic products, from one of my all-time favorite companies. Let me introduce you to Redmond Earthpaste…
How is Earthpaste different from commercial toothpastes?
Sure, the food we eat is one of the most important things for our overall health and wellness, but removing the toxins and chemical additive from our health and beauty products is equally as important. We shouldn’t just check the labels on the foods we eat, but also the products we use on a daily basis. What we put on our bodies is just as important and what we put in our bodies.
If you check the label of a common brand name toothpaste, here are just a handful of the ingredients you’ll find:
- Sodium Fluoride: Growing up, I heard that fluoride was an essential ingredient for building healthy teeth and fighting tooth decay. I still see toothpaste packaging touting the benefits of fluoride, but in reality, sodium fluoride is toxic. It’s used in rat poison, and it can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. Even a small dose can be lethal to a grown adult.
- Triclosan: The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies triclosan as a pesticide. Triclosan can compromise the health of our environment and our bodies.
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: SLS is a foaming agent, and you’ll probably see it listed on your shampoo. According to the American College of Toxicology, SLS may stay within the body for up to five days, accumulating in the heart, liver, lungs and brain.
- DEA: Another foaming agent/endocrine disruptor that can lead to increased risk of liver and kidney cancers with repeated skin exposure.
- Propylene Glycol: You might recognize propylene glycol as an ingredient in antifreeze. Because propylene glycol can be absorbed through the skin and cause brain, liver and kidney abnormalities with prolonged contact, the EPA requires those handling propylene glycol to wear gloves.
What’s most alarming to me is that these ingredients can cause so much harm just through skin exposure. If they’re this toxic on our skin, imagine the damage they can do through oral exposure!
Am I the only one that thinks it is a problem that commercial toothpastes come with a warning to call poison control if swallowed? And yet we knowingly put a toxic product in our mouths multiple times daily. Why?
My friends at Redmond tried to find a non-toxic toothpaste without glycerin, fluoride, foaming agents, or coloring. They couldn’t. So they made one themselves: Redmond Earthpaste. Earthpaste is all natural, chemical-free, vegan, and made with no coloring, no glycerin, no flouride, and no SLS.

The Redmond difference. Why Redmond is making better personal care products.
It’s not just toothpaste –Redmond is making better personal care products for everyone. From bath salts to face masks, and even Earthpowder (a powder alternative to toothpaste). Redmond is on a mission to elevate the human experience by bringing quality, non-toxic products with REAL ingredients to everyone.
I talk about Redmond Real Salt all the time. Both Jon and I are obsessed, and we both even keep a mini shaker on us at all times. We are not shy about traveling with our own salt and pulling it out at restaurants, cafes, or anywhere else we might want to get a little salty. Redmond’s Real Salt is the real deal: unrefined mineral sea salt, with 60+ natural trace minerals, straight from an ancient sea bed. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it isn’t!
Redmond has been sourcing real mineral sea salt from their mine in Utah since the 1960s. They control the entire process from mine to shelf in order to be able to guarantee the purest, best quality salt on the market.
Redmond cares deeply about the sourcing and production of all their products because they want to provide their customers with options that are as close to nature as possible. Redmond wants their customers to get the most out of life and leave the filler out of the picture.
Redmond’s bentonite clay is sourced and produced with the same level of commitment to quality. Bentonite clay has been used in ancient civilizations as a miracle beauty product. Redmond Clay is a unique bentonite clay, mined in Utah since the 1970s, containing both calcium and sodium, along with its blend of natural trace minerals. Redmond Clay is used to make a variety of personal care products, including Earthpaste.
WHAT IS EARTHPASTE?
Earthpaste is toothpaste without all the junk. Earthpaste’s list of ingredients is unique, but the ingredients they chose to leave out are just as important. Most brands of toothpaste are loaded with the toxic ingredients listed above. Not Earthpaste.
Earthpaste delivers all the benefits you expect from a toothpaste without any chemicals or unnatural additives. It’s toothpaste unlike any other you’ve experienced — you’ll see the difference on your brush and feel the difference in your mouth.
It isn’t just safe to swallow — each ingredient in Earthpaste has been used to support healthy systems. Every ingredient is something you would find in a health store. They’ve got nothing to hide.
