Natural, Toxin-free, EWG Verified Oral Health Care
When it comes to oral care people might argue about whether to squeeze toothpaste from the bottom or the middle. However, a much more important question would be, what is actually in your toothpaste and mouth wash and is it harmful to your health?
While small kids are known to swallow up to 50% of their toothpaste every time they brush, don’t think you are safe just because you don’t, because you aren't! Everything you apply to your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream within 26 seconds. Your mouth is one of the most absorbent places in your entire body (therefore some medications are administered under your tongue) and it is the gateway to every system in your body. What makes things worse is that ingredients from mainstream toothpaste and mouth rinse, such as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Triclosan, Propylene Glycol, Fluoride and Alcohol have been found to be even more toxic when ingested than when taken intravenously. Therefore, using natural, toxin-free oral care products is so important!
The average person uses about 75 litres of toothpaste during their lifetime
Many popular brands contain questionable ingredients that you're far better off avoiding, including:
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) or Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES) – are foaming agents linked to cancer, neurotoxicity, organ toxicity, skin irritation and endocrine disruption.
Triclosan – linked to abnormalities with the endocrine system. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals are a serious concern, as they can promote a wide variety of health problems, including breast, ovarian, prostate, and testicular cancer,While it is about to be banned in the USA, it is still used in Australia.
Artificial Sweeteners like Aspartame – are extremely dangerous neurotoxins that can cause a range issues (1)
Propylene Glycol – a mineral oil that is a known skin, eye, and lung irritant and may cause organ system toxicity (2).
Fluoride – fluoride is a toxic chemical that accumulates in your tissues over time, wreaks havoc with enzymes, and produces a number of serious adverse health effects, including neurological and endocrine dysfunction. Children are particularly at risk for adverse effects of overexposure. In fact, research has shown that it is not uncommon for young children to swallow more fluoride from toothpaste alone than is recommended as an entire day's ingestion from all sources (3)
Alcohol - The noxious and unsafe alcohols in Mouth Washes like Listerine - over 20% alcohol !!! – do not only cause a drying effect and burning sensation in the mouth but are also killing off good bacteria and important cells, and are said to increase the risk of oral cancer.
If your oral care products - actually any of your personal care products - contain any of these ingredients I strongly suggest you switch to a natural, non-toxic product.
