Kingfisher Toothpaste

Kingfisher ToothpasteKingfisher was the UK’s first 100% natural toothpaste and one of the first toiletry products we stocked here at Unicorn. Founded by Richard Austin (of Rainbow Wholefoods in Norwich) in the 1980s, it has developed from that first fennel flavour to a range of seven varieties, two of which we stock in the shop. Kingfisher also works to minimise its impact on the environment and contributes to positive projects locally and abroad, especially in Tibet as Richard served on the board of the Free Tibet campaign for over 20 years.

Kingfisher try wherever possible to use organic or ‘wildcrafted’ ingredients, for example the wild-harvested fennel. A complete listing of every single ingredient’s name in full and its use in the toothpaste is available on every pack; a first for British toothpaste manufacture. Kingfisher was also the first natural toothpaste to receive the approval of the British Dental Health Foundation as well as Best Buy status by Ethical Consumer Magazine and Best Cruelty-free Toiletries and Beauty Product from PETA.
