Natural Toothpaste

I do not use store-bought toothpaste. In fact, I do not use any store-bought personal care products with the exception of Dr. Bronner’s Almond Pure-Castile Soap. But that aside, I have been making my own toothpaste for many years and I have very healthy, happy teeth. I would never use a conventional toothpaste ever…maybe one from the health food store in a pinch. Please check out the ingredients of two of Crest’s toothpastes to see all the crazy, carcinogenic ingredients used in conventional toothpastes:

Crest Cavity Protection - Regular Paste: Active Ingredient: sodium fluoride. Inactive Ingredients: sorbitol, water, hydrated silica, sodium lauryl sulfate, trisodium phosphate, flavor, sodium phosphate, cellulose gum, carbomer 956, sodium saccharin, titanium dioxide, blue 1.

Crest Vivid White - Invigorating Mint:  sodium saccharin, titanium dioxide, cellulose gum, sodium hydroxide, sodium lauryl sulfate, cocamidopropyl betaine, PEG-12, sorbitol, water, hydrated silica, glycerin, sodium hexametaphosphate, propylene glycol, flavor, poloxamer 407, xanthan gum, carbomer 956 and polyethylene oxide.

Cripes! I don’t want that leaching into my bloodstream. For a really well-researched understanding and definition of what all these chemicals are in your personal care products please get Adria Vasil's book 'Ecoholic Body'. If you aren’t already familiar with the dubious use of fluoride in toothpaste and water please go to this website: http://www.fluoridealert.org/issues/dental-products/toothpastes/. Again, no thank you!

Brilliant!

Monika, thank you so much for sharing your toothpaste recipe! I will definitely try it out. Not only are all your products superior in quality and very freshly made from the finest ingredients, they are local in Ontario, which makes them a great gift for yourself, for others and for Mother Earth!!!
