Sure you are using only fluoride free toothpaste, but now there’s another ingredient you need to look out for and it’s in a lot of natural toothpastes!
“What is the problem with Glycerin?
Among other things, glycerin is the base for many liquid soaps and on the body isn’t a problem. However, in the mouth, glycerin creates a coat or film that won’t rinse away. Many natural dentists say this glycerin film on teeth can prevent the teeth from being able to remineralize thereby weakening the teeth.”
Concerned about the lead warning on Redmond Earthpaste? Ive done my own research- I’m not. For those of you who are, here is what they had to say:
Peaches, pears, brussels sprouts, nuts, spinach–and dozens of other natural products, including Redmond Clay–contain the tiniest bit of naturally-occurring lead, which is on the prop 65 list. Like these and other natural products, we believe Redmond Clay falls under the exempted products definition, but we’re pretty cautious around here, and not terribly interested in defending civil action by prop 65 watchdogs hoping for a settlement or share of daily fines. So we changed some packaging.
We know the language on proposition 65 warnings is pretty heavy, but we wouldn’t sell any product if we weren’t completely satisfied by its safety. Like so many other companies, we’ve decided it’s simpler to change our packaging than worry about possible complications down the line. Fortunately, like so many other customers, you probably see so many prop 65 warning labels that you already understand our reasons. If you didn’t, we hope you do now!”
