A friend has a difficulty with strong mint flavours - to the extent that
they make her vomit. Unfortunately, walk into a shop and you'll see dozens
of brands of toothpaste with one thing in common... they're all mint
flavoured. The only non-mint toothpastes are those for children which are
stuffed full of artificial sweeteners and are probably not designed for
adult teeth.

Are there any brands of not-minty toothpaste out there? Something that's
unflavoured would be great. Willing to order online if something isn't
available on the High St...

Thanks
Theo

Believe it or not, your exact subject line in google (actually
toothpaste "non-mint") gives quite a few, adding UK narrows it down a
bit:

Second hit gets:
http://www.kingfishertoothpaste.com/
http://www.auravita.com/Brands/AURA/Kingfisher_Natural_Toothpaste.asp

Euthymol too but wikipedia suggests it is too abrasive for everyday use

Thanks, I didn't quite know what to Google for ("toothpaste -mint" doesn't
exactly do the intended). Lots of suggestions there.

Sadly all the Kingfishers bar the fennel one contain mint, and she says both
fennel and Euthymol are also too strongly flavoured. There are plenty of
other brands listed, so I might see what else I can find in the shops.

Try Googling for this: homemade toothpaste. There seem to be quite a few
'recipes' and you can add flavour or not as required.
