If you don't know the ingredients something contains, you should probably find out or don't consume it.

I'm not a health freak, but I make it a point to know what goes in my mouth.

Go on Amazon and order KingFisher toothpaste, its all natural and just as good, I've been using the mint one for months, tastes just like normal mint toothpaste but I don't have to worry about whats in it, it also means that I generally don't have to weigh in on the fluoride debate as I don't consume it at all, its not in our water here either, now its not in my toothpaste and my teeth are lovely if I may say so myself...

Nickel I'm not sure about, in toothpaste I mean, absorption as opposed to consumption, I know that the body needs nickel to pass gas and for stomach functions/wellbeing but I've never heard of us having to top it up with toothpaste... I pass gas just fine.

Zinc oxide: Used in toothpastes to help with tartar build-up, zinc oxide was previously thought to leave the body immediately. A study now shows that the nanoparticles stay in the body at least five hours or more, spreading to the liver, kidneys and other organs. More research on this is needed.

Sounds more like Shampoo to me. Are you sure it is toothpaste?

Well, just off the top of my head, no Googling

zinc oxide : whitener, probably a polish
sorbitol: a sugar alcohol used as a sweetener. Xylitol might have been a better choice here because IIRC it's toxic to bacteria (?)
aqua: water
hydrated silica: an abrasive polish. It's what the dentist's using with the rubber whirligig when they polish your teeth
PEG 12 (whatever da fooook that is): it's a clear thickener, maybe also to keep the stuff from separating
sodium lauryl sulfate: a detergent
aroma: to make it smell minty
cellulose gum: a thickener
cocamidopropyl betaine: pretty sure that's a detergent too
sodium saccharin: sweetener
sodium fluoride: to harden the enamel of your teefus
hydroxypropyl methycellulose: another thickener - is this toothpaste a gel? HMC makes clear jelly out of stuff
glycerin: makes it not be pasty
menthol: minty taste
limonene: a terpene detergent. I guess if you've been licking rubber stamps it could come in handy. It also kills mites. I use it to clean PCBs. It's got a bright citrusy smell and taste, because it's extracted from orange peel. It's popular for cleaning ink off of print equipment.
C1 74160: I think this is a EU designation for a food coloring

None of this is particularly scary. Although why limonene I'm not sure.

If you took out the polishes and changed the smell, it would be quite similar. I'm not sure that minty fresh hair would go over well. You might want to add a bit of conditioner.

The body needs zinc, especially to help with the immune system fighting colds and stuff, so i wouldn't be too bothered about that in there, it's the fluoride you wanna worry about.

I haven't used fluoride toothpaste for years, i use one that contains tea tree oil and other natural stuff.

Thanks for the advice on the toothpaste, going to try it out. Like you, my water is also fluoride free
We are lucky


I use a fluoride free brand from the grocery store (can't think of the name right now) it's pretty good, has a vanilla mint flavor. However, it just doesn't work as well as some of the other brands with fluoride, I'm brushing my teeth four times a day. It's nuts, lol.

i was at one time a chemical compounder for a company that made most of the major brands of tooth paste of the day,
mclains, aqua fresh, crest ..etc, in two ton batches...
the main ingredient is CHALK...thats the whitner, and the abraisive

if you can read between the lines on how that works out in the long run
