It is what you get if you do NOT use a bib.

Default Toothpaste, whats really in that stuff?

Hi All,
I'm new here, just thought I'd put in 2 cents.

Did you know that the foaming of the toothpaste is supplied by sodium laurel sulfate? This is a chemical that is accumulated in the body. It doesn't leave, and it can cause asthma in children, and glaucoma in the elderly.

This same chemical is used in the 'soft soaps' that are in every household these days, and in the liquid bath soaps.

Toothpaste will also give you an unhealthy dose of aluminum.

I've gone to using a paste of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. No colgate for me. Omie

I agree with you Omie... I have started using baking soda and a drop of lemon juice and a bit of xylitol as a paste for my girl.. Use the baking soda and peroxide for myself


By the way, I am really glad to see you made it... i have missed you!!!!!

Default Xylitol

Hi Justme,
Haven't decoded who you might be, but thanks for the welcome.

I too use xylitol as an after brushing/flossing mouth rinse. The way it lets bacteria get washed away, keeps me from getting a plaque buildup. Omie

I just checked the expiration date on my toothpaste and it said EXP052013.

I'm not sure if I have ever checked the expiration date on toothpaste.

ssenmaub, gosh! You dredged up this ancient thread. Actually, toothpaste is pretty benign. If you don't buy natural, you'll find a lot of chemicals in it. Even the natural ones last a while, because of the antibacterials. I make mine from baking soda and coconut oil. Coconut oil will last on the shelf for about 2 years, because it is antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal.
