A New, Fresh & Light Toothpaste Formula

In RADIUS on February 24, 2017 at 1:59 pm

If you’ve used our organic toothpaste in the past, you may have noticed a few subtle changes recently. We know, that’s a bad word. “Change” isn’t a word most people like to hear, but we can assure you that not all change is bad. In fact, the changes that we made are good and only increase the awesome-ness of our toothpaste.

We simply wanted to offer a much lighter, smoother toothpaste so we decided to make a few minor tweaks to our formula that organically enhances the taste, texture, and your overall brushing experience.

 

Now made in the USA

Now just like our toothbrushes and accessories, our organic toothpastes are now made in the good ol’ US of A.

Addition of organic chamomile flower

Not just for tea drinkers, soothing chamomile can also help ease gum inflammation and its antimicrobial properties can act as a natural preservative.

Increased organic aloe

We upped the aloe to offer more of its cooling, antibacterial, and antiviral properties which can help fight tooth decay.

Light, natural foam

No, it’s not SLS or SLES…it’s organic soapberry. Used in oral medications in traditional Chinese medicine, the soapberry is a natural foaming agent and has antibacterial properties.

Have no fear, our toothpastes are still USDA certified organic, vegan, and nasty ingredient-free. We hold those characteristics near and dear to our hearts and promise to never let them go.

Welcome to the Neighborhood, Whole Foods Market Allentown.

In In the News, RADIUS on September 28, 2016 at 3:43 pm

The day has finally arrived. The day we at RADIUS have been not-so-patiently waiting for. The day a Whole Foods Market FINALLY opens near us!

Whole Foods Market Allentown had its grand opening today and the new store is ah-ma-zing! It’s only 20 minutes away from our Kutztown-based HQ (making us practically next door neighbors) and since we could hardly contain our excitement, we decided to take part in the grand opening celebrations this afternoon and check out their new location – of which we will most definitely be frequent visitors.

Their outdoor display game is strong.

You can find anything from locally grown plants and flowers….

to perfect pumpkins that are honestly too pretty to carve…

to the most delicious fresh apple cider (take it from us…we tried a few samples and then bought a few cartons).

And that’s all before you even get inside the door.

Before you start shopping, you can purchase one of these awesome tote bags to carry your haul. And as an added bonus you can show your Whole Foods Market Allentown pride wherever you go.

Um, we’ll take two please. Thankssomuch.

Rows of beautiful organic produce, cheeses, and so much more fill the aisles. Honestly, if you can’t find it here…it probably doesn’t exist.

You go on ahead. I’ll just wait here by the FRESH PASTA BAR until you get back. #Lunch

And now on to our personal favorite… the Whole Body Department…

Well, well, well. Look what we found…our adult toothbrushes and Floss Sachets proudly on display…

and look…our entire children’s toothbrush collection!

Don’t forget about our brand new USDA certified organic toothpastes! This store is definitely showing some RADIUS <3.

We got pretty excited about this bright and fun water bottle display. Can you say new designs from Lifefactory?!

On your way out, make sure to stop by the soap and bath salt bar…

and check out the beautiful “Local” section that’s currently featuring THE BEST handcrafted, wooden utensils from our friends at Jonathan’s Spoons.

All in all it was a pretty successful first visit to our new local Whole Foods Market. The store looked great and the staff was super helpful and friendly – all while being CRAZY busy. I’m sure it won’t be our last visit…in fact we’ll probably be on a first name basis shortly 🙂

If you’re in the area, definitely make sure to check out Whole Foods Market Allentown…after you visit our RADIUS outlet in Kutztown, of course. ;-D

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 16, 2016

 

Kutztown, PABaby Maternity Magazine is a national publication that provides new moms and moms-to-be with the latest industry information on parenting and motherhood. This year marks their 3rd Annual Baby Maternity Awards and RADIUS has been selected to receive two awards in their Oral Hygiene category. RADIUS’ new USDA Organic Children’s Coconut Banana Toothpaste has received the 2016 Top Choice of the Year award and the 2016 Preferred Choice award goes to their innovative Totz Plus™ Toothbrush.

Known for their superior and innovative product designs, RADIUS is stepping into a new market by launching their first USDA certified organic toothpaste. Their one-of-a-kind formula of organic coconut oil and salt delivers a natural deep clean minus any unpronounceable chemicals or additives. Their USDA Organic Children’s Toothpaste is perfect for ages 6 months and up. Merging the delicious flavors of coconut and banana this unique toothpaste also cleans, polishes and prevents bacteria, without any synthetic ingredients.

Introduced in 2015, the Totz Plus Toothbrush represents the next stage in RADIUS’ innovative, age-specific approach to the changing needs of children as they move through oral care growth stages. With a cool, non-slip rubber grip and the same ambidextrous handle as the Totz™ Toothbrush, the new Totz Plus is designed to support the next phase of a toddler’s oral care needs as they learn to brush on their own.

“We’re thrilled to have not only our Totz Plus Toothbrush but our brand new USDA Organic Children’s Toothpaste recognized by Baby Maternity Awards. RADIUS has always taken our customers’ demands and feedback into account when designing new products and we heard a huge cry from parents for quality children’s toothbrushes that are made in the USA. We also saw a need for a truly organic and safe toothpaste that works and tastes delicious. We’ve been working on our organic toothpaste for more than 5 years in hopes of filling that need and we’re very proud of the product we’ve created. To have our efforts recognized is a great honor and we couldn’t be more excited,” CEO and President, Saskia Foley said.
