What to know about your everyday toothpaste

Most kinds of toothpaste are damaging and contain toxic materials.

Most toothpaste contains titanium dioxide,

Also contains FD&C azure color no.1 & 2,

Sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium fluoride, and Glycerin.

How Coconut Oil And Baking Soda Toothpaste works

Coconut oil contains antifungal (used to treat fungal infections, which most commonly affect your skin, hair, and nails), antibacterial (destroys bacteria or suppresses their growth or their ability to reproduce), and antimicrobial (an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth).

Research also suggests that coconut oil can eliminate or destroy bacteria which can cause oral cavities (mouth, includes the lips, the inside lining of the lips and cheeks (buccal mucosa), the teeth, the gums, the front two-thirds of the tongue, the floor of the mouth below the tongue, and the bony roof of the mouth (hard palate).

Baking soda is also an ingredient in making the toothpaste. It is a mild abrasive which helps in teeth cleaning and whitening, it also helps in rejuvenating the pH balance ( pH stands for the power of hydrogen, which is a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body).
