The organic movement has taken the world as we know it by storm— making people evaluate exactly what they’re putting in and on their body’s before doing so. If you like to eat organic and use all-natural facial products, then you may want to consider natural toothpaste. To help you decide whether or not to use an all natural or regular toothpaste, read on below.
The Benefits of All-Natural
Just like with any food or product that’s claiming to be all-natural, the benefits of all-natural toothpastes is that they contain only natural and minimal ingredients. So, if you’re worried about putting any bizarre chemicals in your body than an all natural one will be better. Additionally, all-natural toothpaste doesn’t contain any added dyes to change the color of the toothpaste.
The Animal Issue
If you are an advocate for animal health, safety, and testing, then choosing an all-natural toothpaste may be the way to go. Before picking up an all-natural toothpaste, make sure to check the box for information on animal testing. Additionally, many people choose all-natural toothpaste because they don’t contain any animal bi-products— making them a vegan option as well.
Look for Fluoride
One of the biggest things to consider when choosing either an all-natural or regular toothpaste is whether or not it contains fluoride. As an all-natural mineral, fluoride is the only substance that the American Dental Association has proven fights cavities. Because fluoride is a naturally derived mineral, you can find it in all-natural toothpastes— just make sure you read the label beforehand.
