Toothpaste can cause cancer

This is desirable, they say, because in the end you want to be sure that as many of the toothpaste ingredients as possible are absorbed. That may still apply to herbal extracts, but do we want the PEGs to clear the way for toxins such as parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate or triclosan than it already is?

Artificial sweeteners and sugar substitutes

If you look at the list of contents of toothpastes, you could also come to the conclusion that the production of such a toothpaste without sweeteners or sugar substitutes is completely impossible.

Obviously the consumer cannot be expected to brush his teeth with an unsweetened toothpaste - when he has got used to all the sweet snacks, the sweet soft drinks, the sugar-sweet ketchups, simply to an all-round sweet life.

The discussion about the harmlessness of artificial sweeteners and sugar substitutes is far from over.

The sugar substitute sorbitol, which can be found in some toothpastes, is said to have a certain potential to promote caries and is therefore clearly out of place in a toothpaste. The sweetener saccharin sweetens almost every conventional toothpaste and ensures that brushing your teeth - despite sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan and fluorides - is at least fun. After all, even piglets would not eat their industrial feed if it were not "refined" with sweeteners.

Titanium dioxide turns toothpaste white

Titanium dioxide is also often added to toothpaste. Titanium dioxide is a white pigment that turns toothpaste white. If it is added in the form of tiny nanoparticles, it can enter the body through the mucous membrane of the mouth and possibly have a carcinogenic effect there, but it can also weaken the immune system and - if it is swallowed - damage the intestinal and intestinal flora and promote inflammatory processes. You can read details in our article about the harmful properties of titanium dioxide.

Fortunately, we still have a choice and can opt for toothpastes that for the most part do without the mentioned questionable ingredients, e.g. B. the * toothpastes by nature Hurtig.

Make your natural toothpaste yourself

However, you can also make your own toothpaste from coconut oil yourself, especially since this is inexpensive and possible with little effort.
