The Unreliable Toothpaste Company

I used regular toothpaste for years and quite enjoyed the different flavours and tastes, never questioning what I was using.  But today, we do question, because we are getting smarter.

Over a lifetime, we might use approximately 70 litres of toothpaste, much of which is spit out, but not all.  Besides polluting our waters, the swallowed portions do remain in our tissues. Most of us do not even question the toothpaste we use.  We believe it would not be allowed to be sold if it was harmful. Perhaps we are a bit naive.
We should be concerned. Let’s look briefly at each of the above ingredients listed in the ‘AD’ I created.

Fluoride: a toxic chemical that accumulates in tissues wreaking havoc and producing serious adverse health effects, including neurological and endocrine dysfunction.

Tricolsan: many studies link this chemical to cancer

SLS: aka sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate (SLS), or sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES). Linked to cancer. Have you ever eaten right after brushing your teeth and the food tastes bad? SLS brings out the bitter, bad breath and canker sores. Makes the toothpaste foam so we think we are cleaning.

Propylene glycol:  It is seen in antifreeze, paints, enamels and antifreeze. Do you really want it in your mouth?  

Diethanolamine (DEA) earns a score of 10 toxicity (the worst) in the EWG (Environmental Working Group).  Check it out.

Microbeads: Really bad.  Plastic pellets. Killing our fish too. Need we say more.

Artificial Sweeteners: Aspartame is a common one. Banned twice by the FDA.  Go figure. The methanol created from aspartame is NOT the same that is found in fruits and veggies (as often claimed) and can be poisonous to humans.

I am not giving any references to the above statements because there are just too many.  With google search you can figure it out for yourself. Kudos to you for caring about yourself and doing something about it.

Let’s make better choices.

If you feel adventurous you might try our Tooth Cleanser. Full of nature’s best and certainly different. You will have to get used to the dull green colour, the varying texture due to the coconut base (coconut can do its melt down if warm and a cool up when cold) and a messy sink, but a hot water rinse works well. You just learn to deal with these in order to obtain the best mouth nutrition. A bit of a trip but worth it.
