Did you know that toothpaste is full of harmful chemicals? There are dozens of cheap toothpaste brands out there, many bearing impressive looking seals from official looking organizations on the back. What is actually in toothpaste, though?
The stuff that makes your toothpaste foam is usually SLS, sodium lauryl sulfate. Translation: shampoo base. Yes, you are probably going to brush your teeth with shampoo today. SLS is also a lubricating and emulsifying agent. It helps the paste to stay together and to move through the filling tubes without forming a lot of air pockets. Indeed, SLS is in the toothpaste formulation to help the manufacturer to deliver a more consistent looking product.
So what DO we use to clean our teeth and gums safely and effectively?
Three ingredients stand the test of time: sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), sodium chloride (table salt), and essential oils in small quantities. Sodium Bicarbonate is a simple substance. However, many mass market baking sodas are contaminated with heavy metals such as cadmium. Tooth Salt uses pure sodium bicarbonate. Hold the metals please!
Tooth Salt contains real sea salt so that you ARE getting minerals that you need, without the heavy metals in forms you don’t need. Small quantities of plant-based aromatic essential oils are added for freshness, taste and product enhancement.
For thousands of years, tooth salts and tooth powders have been used to keep teeth clean and breath fresh. Keep your teeth and gums healthy. Kick the paste and start using Toothsalt with Peppermint!
