Natural Toothpaste is Best for You

Natural Toothpaste,
Natural Toothpastes are free of most chemicals

Natural Toothpaste Best for your Health

Natural things are good for us, much better than goods with chemicals in them. In these modern times we are surrounded by chemicals. They are in lots of foods we eat as well as the toiletries we use. Who would have thought that we would have to clean ourselves with chemicals? That just doesn’t make sense to me.

As the inside of the mouth is one of the fastest ways of absorbing anything into our body, it makes sense that anything we put in our mouth should be as pure as possible and this includes toothpaste.

My Toothpaste should be FREE from:

Make sure your toothpaste is free from salicylates, fluoride, artificial sweeteners for example saccharin, and sodium lauryl sulphate. Try to avoid anything with the words glycol, propylene, polyol.
Chemicals to avoid in toothpaste are

Saccharin – an artificial sweetener

Antimicrobials – alcohol or triclosan. These can result in antibiotic resistant bacteria

Chlorine dioxide – an industrial bleach

Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) which is an industrial detergent and may cause allergies

Sodium lauryl sarcosinate is used as a foaming and cleansing agent.

Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) which is caustic soda. It is also an industrial detergent and drain cleaner

Salicylates which cause allergies. Aspirin is salicylic acid

PEG/PPG is polypropylene glycol which acts as a wetting agent. It is also in the substance used as a gel when having an ultrasound and is found in baby wipes etc.
