Product Review: Kodomo Toothpaste for Children

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

     Hi dearies, here's a short review of Kenzo's favorite toothpaste as of the moment. From the first time we saw it in the grocery shelves until now, Kenzo is always excited using this brand of toothpaste. I guess this is because of the flavor, it's toothy fruity plus the scent that lingers after brushing his teeth.

     I'm not expecting this toothpaste to make his whiter. I just want to make sure that even though he doesn't have permanent teeth yet, he is starting to care about oral health. More details about Kodomo Toothpaste below :)
Product Review: Kodomo Toothpaste for Children
According to Kodomo's website:

     There is common misconception that milk teeth are not important since it will be replaced by permanent teeth. The truth is: milk teeth play an extremely important role in the grown and development of every child. They also hold the spaces for the growth of permanent teeth and impact on speech and mental development such as confidence and self-esteem. Yet, 4 out of 10 preschoolers in Singapore have severe tooth decay**, which can affect children’s general health.

     Established since 1982, Kodomo believes in cultivating good dental habits from young. Using Lion Japan’s advanced dental technology; Kodomo has specially developed a wide range of children oral care products for babies and children aged from 6 months to 12 years old.

     Kodomo children oral care range is available in cheerful animal designs (I think this is not yet available here in out country as I haven't seen one) and fruity flavors to make brushing a twice daily fun activity for children.

  • Use Kodomo soft-bristled toothbrushes for thorough cleaning while gentle to gums
  • Use Kodomo fluoridated children's toothpaste to protect teeth against cavities effectively
  • Visit dentist twice a year

Strawberry and Apple flavor
What I like:

  • The packaging is attractive. I believe that this kind of visual means "brushing of teeth is fun" for my son.
  • The cover of this toothpaste cannot be rotated, you have to manually force it upward to open and I prefer this type of cap so that Kenzo would not play with it when I'm not around.
  • The price is so affordable.
  • It has 4 flavors to choose from.
  • The scent is true to the flavor of this toothpaste.
  • After brushing his teeth, the apple scent lingers.
  • A pea-size is enough for one brushing.
  • It bubbles unlike other toddler's/kid's toothpaste available in the market today.
  • It contains Xylitol and it's sugar-free.
  • This toothpaste contains sodium fluoride to strengthen teeth but some moms would veer away from this because they fear that their toddler will swallow the toothpaste if their children still don't know how to gargle and spit. 
  • There's a batch, manufacturing, and expiry date printed on flap of the toothpaste box.
  • Easily accessible.

What I don't like:

  • Contains parabens.

Will I repurchase? Yes. This is Kenzo's favorite brand of toothpaste as of the moment and we use different flavors on rotation.

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. As for the parabens, as long as Kenzo is not swallowing the toothpaste I'm good with it but I'm still a bit worries because there are reports that parabens can cause cancer. Anyhoo, teach you children at an early age to brush his teeth 3 times a day. If you can, include gargling and spitting so that you will not worry about ingesting the fluoride present in his toothpaste.

  1. REALLY HELPFUL POST! I'll buy this for my four year old :)

  2. Hi! My son use to love also the komodo toothphase. But my problem now is he don't want any toothphase aside from that and I can't find it na sa hypermarket Sm sucat or even Liana's supermarket. Hope there's an online shop in the Phils that komodo is available. :)

    1. Hi,

      Oh, that's sad :( Dito sa Hypermarket SM Fairview and Robinsons Novaliches meron pa naman. I hope they will sell it again baka out of stock lang?

  3. My son didnt gargling the toothpaste he is only 18 months so is that ok if he swallor that kodomo paste?

    1. Hi,

      If not everyday and in small amount no need to worry but still advisable not to swallow the tooth paste especially with toddlers.
