These include

  • Fluoride – helps in remineralization of your teeth but it also comes with concerns like dental fluorosis (1 in 3 children in the USA gets it)

  • Whitening agent

  • Triclosan – an antibacterial and antifungal ingredient that is added to most cleaning agents, including toothpaste

  • Sodium lauryl sulfate(SLS) – an ingredient that may cause skin irritation while it causes the bubbling effect that we may be so used to

  • Propylene glycol

  • Sodium hydroxide

  • Artificial coloring

  • Glycerin – I just learned that Glycerin actually coats your teeth and prevents it from remineralizing.

  • Titanium dioxide – a fine, white powder that provides a bright, white pigment, that is where toothpaste gets its white texture.

What is the Best Homemade Toothpaste?

The best homemade toothpaste is one that you make for yourself and your family that you will feel safe to use.

It may take a few experiments to get it right.

It does not have to cost a lot, especially when most of the ingredients that you need, are in the kitchen or just a grocery shopping trip away.

 

The most common ingredients that you will notice in these homemade toothpaste recipes are

1. Baking Soda – alkaline and can remove stains.

If you are concerned or even been advised that using baking soda will be too abrasive for your teeth, head over here to read this report whether baking soda is a good alternative to toothpaste.

2. Coconut Oil – natural antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal properties.

3. Peppermint Oil – antiviral and gives fresh breath.

 

And more advanced recipes call for additions of

4. Stevia – flavoring agent.

6. Bentonite Clay – high in minerals and has alkaline properties that help to balance the acidic pH of the mouth.

7. Xylitol – flavoring agent.

8. Calcium Carbonate – helps in remineralization.

 

Supplies that you will need to hold the end product
