This morning, I woke up early, thinking to myself, I really, really have to study for my chemistry exam. So what did I do?
Tested toothpaste, of course!
Sorbitol, glycerin, hydrated silica, aqua, xylitol, aloe barbadensis leaf extract [organic], cetraria islandica (Iceland moss) extract, olea europaea (olive) leaf extract, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, stevia rebaudina extract, flavor, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, methol, ammonium glycyrrhizate (licorice), xanthan gum, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, chlorophyllin-copper comples, potassium sorbate.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t know what the hell some of that is, so I visited Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Reviews for enlightenment.
What Kiss My Face says: “This product contains no SLS, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or animal ingredients and was not tested on animals.”
What Skin Deep says: NOTHING! The Cosmetics Database had an assessment of the old formula only, but I thought it might be useful anyway since the old formula had a lot of the same ingredients. The old formula version of this toothpaste scored a 2 hazard level – out of 10, with only 7% of tooth whiteners having lower concerns. Not bad, Kiss My Face!
So what do I say?
However, it didn’t foam much – at all, and so when I finished brushing my teeth my whole mouth didn’t feel minty, which I think is important.
I wouldn’t switch from my current toothpaste, but it wasn’t bad. Three out of five. I’ll update you on the whitening after I brush a few more times with it.
So anyway, the below, NOT fake tanning, is the REAL reason for my skin’s slightly orange tint:Yellow, red, and orange bell peppers, a sweet potato, an orange, and edamame.Charming! [Yes, I painted my nails between these pictures.]
What’s your favorite natural toothpaste?
