Natural Toothpaste with a Fluoride Substitute
Our Moothpaste took us years to develop after talking with both dental practitioners and our customers. Our aim was to provide the benefits of Fluoride to those that prefer not to use this ingredient.
Fluoride is needed to assist remineralization. When scratches and cracks appear in your teeth, Fluroride helps fill these cracks in in before bacteria can cause tooth decay. Surprisingly, there are other alternatives to Fluoride with good evidence that would suit many people. They just cost a little more and are tricky to formulate with. But we did it and we think it is worth the few cents more per brushing.
We do not use Glycerin as this can coat the teeth preventing remineralization. We do not use SLS, nor Titanium Dioxide, nor the type of preservatives we would not be comfortable having our children consume. We certainly don't use Triclosan...actually commercial toothpaste is almost a dictionary of ingredients that are against our ingredient philosophy. Never looked at them? We have one of the largest commercial toothpaste's list of ingredients below.
For those new to natural toothpaste, you may find it a little different to the main commercial brands. Natural cleansers do not hold their foam as long as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.
Considering how much toothpaste we swallow, and children often swallowing it all, we think this small compromise is worth it.
