The box of Tom's I have contains:
Ingredient, Purpose, Source:
Calcium Carbonate, Mild Abrasive, Purified calcium from the earth.
Water, Consistency, Maine Aquifer.
Glycerin, Moistener, Vegetable Oils.
Sodium Bicarbonate, Mouth freshness, Sodium Bicarbonate.
Xylitol, Anti-plaque, Birch trees.
Carrageenan, Thickener, Seaweed.
Pepperment Oils, Flavor, Peppermint.
Sodium lauryl sulfate, Dispersant, Coconut oil.
Myrrh, Mouth freshness, Myrrh Bush.
Propolis, Mouth freshness, tree resin mix gathered by bees.
So again, you must have the large chain store version which contains Fluoride and is a different recipe than their better versions found in organic
Also, not all chemicals are bad simply because they have a funny chemistry name. The only thing I don't like in this version of Tom's is the Sodium
lauryl sulfate, that stuff isn't too great. Otherwise, it is a heck of a lot better than your average brand of toothpaste.
