BioMin Toothpaste For Stronger Teeth : Review

by InvisiblyMe
A photo I took of five boxes of BioMin toothpaste from a birds-eye view on my white desk. The boxes are white with red and green detailing. Overlaid is the post title: BioMin Toothpaste Review.

I was thrilled when Richard, BioMin’s SEO, got in touch with me and kindly asked if I’d like to try out their toothpaste range. The science behind BioMin is pretty nifty and it’s been interesting learning more about it as I’ve been trying the toothpaste for this review. Spoiler Alert: I love this stuff!

Benefits Of BioMin In A Nutshell

  • Protects & strengthens the surface of the teeth.
  • Advanced, unique formula gradually releases ions to reduce dentine sensitivity.
  • Reduced or zero fluoride depending on toothpaste format.
  • Provides long lasting protection up to 12hrs.
  • Not tested on animals & no animal products used.

You can find out more about the brand & products, along with professional testimonials & user reviews, on the BioMin website.

The BioMin Range

The BioMin catalogue is still expanding, but at present there are two main variations of the toothpaste that vary in their fluoride content, plus a version for children.

What’s also really heartening is that BioMin toothpastes don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients and the brand doesn’t test on animals.

BioMin F – Lower Fluoride. Produces Fluorapatite to protect teeth.

The BioMin F toothpaste provides long lasting effects (up to 12hrs) by slowly releasing a mixture of phosphate, calcium and fluoride ions. These elements combine to create Fluorapatite, which goes inside and around any dentine tubules that are exposed in order to protect the teeth and reduce sensitivity. BioMin F toothpaste replicates the effects of saliva and helps to replace any lost mineral on the surface of teeth. This is why BioMin is referred to as “armour for teeth”. Pretty cool, huh?

Ingredients include: Glycerin, PEG 400, Silica, Titanium Dioxide, Fluoro CalciumPhosphoSilicate, Carbomer, Aroma, Potassium Acesulfame & Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. Fluoride content is less than 600ppm.

BioMin C – Fluoride-free. Produces Hydroxyapatite to protect teeth.

The ingredients here adhere to the surface of the teeth and slowly release the ions in a similar fashion to the BioMin F toothpaste, but it works more quickly to create a hydroxyapatite coating and it does so without any fluoride.

BioMin F For Kids – BioMin F science with a fruity twist.

Prevention is better than cure, and taking care of your teeth is best started at a young age. With kids, the love for sugary yumminess and perhaps some reluctance to brush regularly might impact their dental health. The kids range of toothpastes pack in all the goodness of BioMin F but in two fruity flavours of strawberry and melon to make brushing fun and enjoyable for the little ones. 

BioMin F or BioMin C or Kids?

The Fluorapatite provides superior acid resistance compared to the hydroxyapatite produced by BioMin C, so if you want greater protection against acid erosion, then BioMin F may be preferable.

However, if you want or need to go for a fluoride-free toothpaste, then BioMin C is the perfect alternative.

The Kids BioMin range has the same ingredients as BioMin F to protect teeth, so it’s not a weaker version. There are only two differences: they have a flavouring, and the toothpaste itself is more glittery and translucent rather than white. As such, it’s not just for kids because adults can love it too, like I do!

To Use

This is used as a regular toothpaste, however BioMin provide some suggestions to amplify the benefits.

Use a 1cm line of the toothpaste on your brush, and place it against your teeth, tilting at a slight angle against the gum line. Using short, gentle up and down movements to push the bristles away from gums. Start with the outer surfaces of the upper and lower teeth, then repeat for the inner surfaces and the back teeth. Give a little extra TLC to the hard the reach areas. Keep brushing for two minutes and then swirl the toothpaste foam around your mouth for a further 30 seconds.

Spit out but don’t rinse your mouth with water as that’ll wash off the active ingredients. They also suggest not to eat or drink for around 30 minutes after brushing, which gives the toothpaste more time to work its magic. Smile and enjoy your freshly cleaned and strengthened teeth!

My Thoughts

Packaging

The packaging is understated & contemporary, giving it a natural yet professional edge. For those wanting science but without a huge list of scary-sounding chemicals, then this is pretty appealing. The toothpastes come in convenient squeezy tubes with screw caps that are easy to use.

BioMin F

In terms of the regular BioMin F, the toothpaste has a minty fresh flavour which is very pleasant. I find that toothpastes & mouthwashes can sometimes be too minty and too strong, but this is just right.

After use it feels like there’s a coating on my teeth. If I run my tongue across my teeth they almost feel thicker, while also feeling much smoother and highly polished. I love the sensation.

BioMin Kids

The Kids toothpaste is a fantastic fruity twist on BioMin F. Caring for your child’s teeth is so important, but I’d also say adults could enjoy these ones as a break from the regular mint toothpastes. The strawberry has a light scent to it, but it looks glittery translucent rather than red. I can’t remember using anything other than mint toothpaste even as a child so it’s a bit strange at first, but the flavourings are gentle and great for a change. It has a strawberry yumminess as you brush, and the other is a lovely melon flavour, just don’t get carried away and swallow any!

The Science

The science is pretty fascinating. I hadn’t even heard of bioactive glass before trying out this product but the fact that it can help to replace lost apatite mineral on tooth surfaces is fantastic. I’ve experienced weakened enamel, chips at the top of my teeth, gum issues and sensitivity, so I gravitate towards products that target these areas. The benefits of this particular toothpaste are spot on for my needs. I’ve found that sensitivity is reduced after use and I’m hoping to continue using this toothpaste in future to continue to strengthen the surface of my teeth over time.

A photo I took of the BioMin toothpaste gifted for this review on the edge of a counter in my white bathroom. It's upright next to a toy yellow duck with a hat and lasso to look like Indiana Jones. A manual toothpaste lies in front.
Mr Jones Duck gives this his seal of approval.

This toothpaste effectively fights the damage that can be caused by acidic and sugary foods and drinks. I drink a lot of Pepsi Max because I’m constantly thirsty and I eat a lot of sugary sweets, much to the displeasure of my dentist. Even products you may not think of because they’re ‘healthy’ can damage enamel, like fruit juice. The bioactive glass minerals help to replace lost apatite mineral on tooth surfaces, which in turn strengthens the teeth and protects them from further damage when used on an ongoing basis.

If you have any issues with the health of your teeth, the enamel or with tooth sensitivity, then BioMin is a great place to start. Even if you don’t have any issues I think this is a toothpaste that should help to keep it that way, continuing to strengthen your teeth and prevent future damage. Prevention is better than cure, as they say.

An All-Round Toothpaste

Whether you go for the BioMin F, C or Kids flavoured versions, this is an excellent all-rounder toothpaste that can be used daily in place of your regular product. It’s specifically designed to strengthen the teeth and provide enhanced protection against acidic food and drink, but it’ll also keep your pearly whites healthy, protecting against cavities, tartar and plaque.

Any downsides? At the moment availability is somewhat limited to just a few outlets, but hopefully that’ll expand in future.

It’s a pricier toothpaste but it’s also powerful and effective, so I personally feel it’s worth paying for. It does something that your regular budget toothpastes don’t do: using advanced ingredients to strengthen the surfaces of teeth while reducing sensitivity in a way that no other toothpaste can.

All in all, I’ve been super impressed by the way this toothpaste works, its effectiveness, and the way my teeth feel after using it. A worthy investment for strong, healthy gnashers – highly recommended!

  • Unfortunately Amazon’s BioMin range is limited for those in the States, but you can find BioMin C on Amazon US.

Great review and the best part is it wasn’t tested on animals and has no animal byproducts.

Have a fabulous day, Caz. ♥

I was happy when I read that it was totally animal-friendly, too! Thanks for the comment, Sandee, I’m glad you liked the review ???? xx

I was amused when all four grandchildren came to stay once – pre Covid — to see three different age ranges of children’s toothpaste in the bathroom! I’m sure they would like Biomin.

That made me chuckle. There are so many kids toothpastes out these days which is great to see if it helps encourage little ones to brush their teeth. xx

I never heard of Biomin toothpaste. Is that available in the US? I’m going to take a look. It sounds like another good way to take care of your teeth.

Invisibly Me October 8, 2020 - 5:55 pm

I hadn’t heard of the brand prior to them contacting me either. It’s available in your neck of the woods, Darnell. I popped up the links for online sites. I personally really liked the toothpaste and I’m impressed by the nifty science behind how it works! Thanks for the comment – I hope the week’s been treating you kindly ????

Sounds like I need the toothpaste! I’m always trying new toothpaste but have yet to have anyone send me some. You did another review not long ago. I guess they were impressed by that one. Take care.

It’s always a pleasure when you can honestly recommend a product because you genuinely love it. It was an Oral B toothpaste I previously reviewed, which is unfortunately only available in the UK as a Boots special. The two are specialised slightly differently, so BioMin is more about strengthening teeth whereas Oral B is more sensitivity and gums. If you want to try a new toothpaste or something else for testing and reviewing on your blog, perhaps you could reach out to a brand and see what they say. You never know! ???? xx

Oh, this sounds good. I want this, but I think I want the children’s strawberry or melon toothpaste. Think I’d be trying to brush more often using that. Seriously, Biomin sounds like a good toothpaste with less fluoride, but the same protection. Great review, Caz.

I’ve genuinely been really pleased with this one. I find the adult & kids ones alike to be pleasant to use and not too strong, and the kid flavours are definitely interesting! As you say, it’s a great option if you want to reduce the fluoride too. Thanks for the comment, Liz  ♥ xx

That sound like a really good toothpaste to try. I love the fact that they are low in fluoride and have an option without any fluoride. Also in my home, we drink diet coke and this toothpaste sounds like a good idea to apply on your teeth for extra protection. Thank you for sharing!

Same here with the soft drinks, Svet. I drink a lot of Pepsi Max & eat way too many sugary sweets, so extra protection from this toothpaste is really appealing. xx

Caz, this toothpaste sounds great! I’ve been using a flouride free mineral toothpaste for the last 9 months or so and it’s really helped Dave and I so much. We both wish we’d had/found them 20 years ago, before ours started going downhill so much. Biomin sounds similar, or at least one of their formulas. It may be more expensive, but so far it’s saving us more at the dentist. Great review. I’ll have to look into their offerings in the US. XX

InvisiblyMe October 9, 2020 - 10:30 am

I’m glad you’ve both found something that works in a similar fashion! I agree with the value for money side of things; if a product’s more expensive but it’s also more effective, it’ll save your teeth and your money in the long run ???? xx

I have been lucky so far with my teeth but it is probably a good idea to prevent whatever harm I can! And nice to have some flavour options as I definitely would have liked the strawberry one as a kid.

Reply
InvisiblyMe October 9, 2020 - 12:11 pm

I personally quite like the strawberry one as an adult – it’s just so different to what we’re used to with mint! I’m glad your gnashers are still good, Sean. Long may they stay that way. Preventing harm is always a good idea and giving them a protective coating like BioMin does isn’t a bad idea even if you don’t have many sugary foods/drinks or notice any current dental problems. Have a great weekend ahead! ????

You do the best reviews Caz! Seriously, this is amazing 🙂 They chose well asking you to do test this one out for us. I’ve ordered the F one on eBay but I might try the melon flavour next. I hadn’t heard of bioactive glass before either, sounds pretty fancy and if anything can help with strengthening our teeth then it’s worth it. Like you’ve I’ve had problems with enamel and a few chips here and there. I think we spoke about this before actually. It’s worrying isn’t it? I’m looking forward to using this one, let’s hope it helps both of us and whoever else gives it a try. Great review A*!

InvisiblyMe October 9, 2020 - 12:13 pm

Aww that’s very kind of you! I really enjoy testing & reviewing products, and it’s my pleasure to be able to share and recommend this one. I’m sorry you’ve had issues with tooth enamel and some chipping too. I find chips pretty worrying, and you’re right, I do remember chatting with you about this recently so this is great timing! I hope you love it when you get started on it – let me know what you think? I hope it helps your teefs, Katie ???? Thanks for the comment lovely.xx

I read this with interest because I used to constantly be getting these painful sores in my mouth, ever since I was a kid. Eventually I learned that most commercial toothpastes contain sodium laureth sulfate and/or sodium lauryl sulfate (which are maybe the same thing? I’m not a chemist …) which can irritate the mouth lining, and I switched to a toothpaste that doesn’t have either, and poof! No more sores. Well, except when I accidentally bite the inside of my lip or cheek, but that’s the fault of my teeth …

Reply
InvisiblyMe October 13, 2020 - 10:34 pm

Oh wow, I’d never heard of anyone having sensitivity to that before. I imagine you won’t be alone though. All sorts of ingredients can cause problems and it must be tricky figuring out exactly what’s causing the problem. I’m glad you were able to solve the problem, James.
As for biting the inside of your mouth, that can be really sore, can’t it? Don’t you find you have the tendency to keep biting the same place, as though your teeth having a Sat Nav directing them to that sore spot ????

What a brilliant review of an awesome product, Caz! I was entirely unfamiliar with BioMin before reading this. To be honest, I’m considering trying a tube. I love most of all that they don’t test on animals and they protect the teeth without flouride!

The way you describe your teeth after brushing sounds refreshing. ???? I’m impressed! Rebuilding the surface of the teeth without harsh chemicals — that’s a win!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Congratulations on getting the free goodies! I’m glad you found a product you love and will continue using. Isn’t it awesome how we can be gifted something and then wind up becoming lifelong fans? One of the many blessings of blogging!
