Ask your question

  • I think the children ones are milder on their teeth & more t get them use to using it, gradually getting a little stronger in ingredients as they go, especially since children have a habbit of swallowing it in the beginning which you shouldn’t do too much with regular toothpaste………..Also if anyone knows where I can buy toothpaste that isn’t mint or herbal can they please let me know as I have an older child who hates the flavour so at the moment get friends to bring back from the US



  • I do not believe in this we have been using Colgate for years never had age on them … It never hurt us .. Sometimes it’s just a money making idea. Really come on …



  • To what I understand the milk teeth one’s are formulated for infants and have less harsh products, then the kids have a lil more flouride or something than the adult one. My main this is I try to stay clear of sls (sodium lauryl sulfate ) in toothpaste
