With countless options available in the market for oral care, it might get overwhelming for anyone to find the best oral care product for them. From flavourful taste and aroma to sparkly crystals, there are a plethora of flashy, colourful options available on the market.
What needs to be checked in toothpaste are the ingredients. Even though it is recommended that it be made with all natural ingredients or herbal, make a habit of reading the ingredients before purchasing one. Let us give you a brief overview of which chemicals you can find in your toothpaste and why to avoid them.
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) is a common ingredient used to create foaming action in toothpaste. However, it can cause oral tissue irritation, leading to canker sores and mouth ulcers in some individuals. It is weird that this particular toxic chemical is avoided in skin care and hair care products but is blatantly used in toothpaste!
Toothpaste often contains artificial sweeteners such as saccharin, aspartame, or sucralose to enhance taste. However, these sweeteners can contribute to an imbalance in oral bacteria, potentially leading to tooth decay and cavities. These artificial sweeteners have been regularly pinned down by multiple authorities for being unsafe for humans for long-term usage.
Parabens are preservatives used in various personal care products, including some toothpaste brands. However, research suggests that parabens may disrupt hormone function and have potential health risks. In this day and age, when you can find a plethora of paraben-free skin care and hair care products, you would rarely find any oral care brand mentioning any paraben-free toothpaste. It is best to avoid such toothpaste and choose paraben-free toothpaste to minimise exposure to these controversial preservatives.
Artificial Colours and Flavours
Artificial flavours may make toothpaste more appealing and imitate natural fruit or any ingredient’s taste, whereas artificial colours make toothpaste sparkly and eye-catching, but both serve no functional purpose in oral care. These artificial colours are made from petroleum or crude oil and are also called petroleum dyes. Some artificial colours have been linked to allergic reactions, while artificial flavours can mask the taste of chemicals or irritate sensitive gums. Opting for toothpaste with natural colours and flavours is a safer and healthier choice.
Being mindful of the chemicals present in toothpaste is essential for maintaining oral health. By avoiding chemicals such as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), Triclosan, artificial sweeteners, parabens, and artificial colours and flavours, we can make informed choices and prioritise our well-being. It is always important to read labels and opt for toothpaste with safer and more natural ingredients.
