Natural dental care is great! They are effective at cleaning and protecting your teeth and gums without all the harsh chemicals that can strip enamel, cause sensitivity and be damaging to your overall health!
Did you know most conventional dental products like mouthwash and toothpaste for example include harmful ingredients like titanium dioxide, and SLS that acts as a foaming agent. Studies have found that sodium lauryl sulphate also referred to as SLS can irritate the mouth and cause canker sores. So, if you can make sure you opt for a natural dental care product that is eco and chemical free.
Natural dental care is also more beneficial to our body's as they do not contain any artificial colourants! Did you know for commercial dental care products to get their illuminous blues and purples they use artificial additives and colours. Another chemical that plastic free, eco, natural dental care does not contain is parabens. Parabens are used to extend the shelf life of products, but they can do more harm than good and are known to disrupt hormones.
It is also important what packaging your natural dental care products come in. Commercial dental care products are a big offender of plastic pollution, with plastic toothbrushes being mainly associated with the pollution of our oceans! You also have mouthwash and dental floss that are notorious for their plastic packaging.
