First toothpaste - Wed 3rd Dec 2014

Great first toothpaste when your little one still swallows everything. No nasties :-) We now use one with fluoride as there is no fluoride in the water in Wales :-)

Toothpaste can be used like a mouthwash if you can't directly use a brush. Simply dilute some in clean water and swish a little around your mouth for 5 or more minutes, then spit out and give a final rinse.

This is my little boy's favourite toothpaste by far, and we have tried a couple of different toothpaste's now. Reading the other comments, I guess that unless you use something like bi-carb there are always going to be some kind of preservative which ideally we would not like entering our children's bodies, however I know equally that my son would never use bicarb! For now, I'm happy it's free of many of the nasties found in mainstream toothpastes.

Regarding sodium hydroxymethylglycinate.

When making small batches of dental cream products/ oil based there is no need for efficacious preservatives, some pruduction companies involved in this do give such preservatives bad press. However when making largish batches of water based products as the Aloe Dent range, there really is no other option to keep water-based products safe. People who want to avoid irritation caused by contamination must use preservatives. Small scale manufacturing doesn't always have the same requirements as larger batches. Vitamin E, grapefruit seed extract etc do not sufficiently protect this type of solution and so are not a safe option.

I'm afraid online people resort to scare tactics, twist technical data to give misleading and/or exaggerated information. Here's just one example of how to make a perfectly harmless substance appear dangerous... Its chemical name is dihydrogen monoxide - with a name like that it already sounds dangerous. Its dangers include death by inhalation, it is a by-product of nuclear powder, heavily processed, it has been detected in tumours of thousands of cancer patients, it has been found in the vital organs of over 90% of stroke victims, it is a primary component of acid rain and it's gaseous form can immediately cause serious burns upon contact and lead to tissue necrosis... So what is this dangerous material which is used in cosmetics and even foods? Dihydrogen monoxide is more commonly known as water; vital to life but if marketed using the above information (which would be included on a chemical Material Safety Data Sheet [MSDS]) it could cause a major health scare. By exaggerating the facts ingredients that are perfectly safe to use can be portrayed as hazardous chemicals.

Secondly, is the source of info referring to 100% raw material, or a tiny percentage pre-vetted by European cosmetic scientists (who determine what is safe to use in Europe). If a person used pure citric acid on epithelial tissue it would be damaging. It is natural origin used in the body's energy cycle, but can be synthetically made, however when used as a percentage in a finished product it gives the product a more favourable pH and creates a safe cosmetic that does not irritate.

The vast majority of permitted ingredients (botanical extracts, distillates, vitamins, minerals etc) are 'man-made' or processed prior to inclusion in cosmetics. Yet they are considered natural and more importantly safe. Products from outside the EU may contain different levels, considered un-safe in the EU (see annex III to the Directive). AloeDent fluoride-free dentifrices use natural origin ingredients. The only known sensitizer/skin irritant in the toothpaste actually comes from natural plant essential oil. In the EU there is a list of ingredients that irritate the skin and are not permitted in any concentration (see annex II). SHMG is not one of them. 1 in 50 people may suffer an immune system response to cosmetic ingredients. Legislation dictates that common sensitizers and allergens (which have been assessed and considered safe for the vast majority of consumers) must be listed in the ingredients list of cosmetics. For example, if there was a problem with formaldehyde contamination/formation in our product it would state "contains formaldehyde" on pack - see annex VI of the EU Cosmetics Directive.

Certain susceptible individuals can react to any substance applied topically. If a person knows they have sensitive skin they should perform a skin patch test for 48 hours prior to liberal application/use of a cosmetic. When a natural or organic ingredient is unproven or shows an inferior performance, Optima uses a better understood processed alternative. Not all man-made materials are harmful and 'bad' and not all 'natural' materials are good and safe.

The direct cause of cancer is unknown. There are thousands of natural and man-made substances and preparations (mixtures of substances) that are carcinogenic. Europe's cosmetics are amongst the safest in the world, but the 2013 Cosmetics Directive requires even more extensive safety assessments including skin irritancy tests, toxicological assessment, as well as assessing reproductive toxicity and carcinogenic and mutagenic constituents. All of the AloeDent products are considered safe to use.

Dentifrices are not considered carcinogenic. Even if there were carcinogenic substances their carcinogenic effect would be less than from eating toast or spending time in a big city. Everyone consumes carcinogens, in the Western world they are unavoidable, however their cumulative impact is reduced by following a healthy diet and lifestyle. Antioxidant substances (topically, orally and manufactured by the body internally) help to mitigate some of the damaging effects of cell damaging constituents. It is important to remember that the benefits of active ingredients far outweighs any alleged health risk (a great example here is man-made UV sun-ray filter ingredients).

I hope that the above information reassures you regarding the safety of AloeDent products, gives clients some perspective and will help them appreciate that the manufacture of safe, efficacious, non-contaminated toiletries (with a shelf life to suit wholesaler, retailer and consumer alike), is a rather complex matter. I can assure you that Optima will always look to improve formulations and make them as natural as possible, whilst retaining benefits; if a more natural alternative for the formula becomes available we would certainly use it.

Kind Regards
Becci

WARNING. I would like to inform you that AloeDent contains Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate. Its been found to be an irritant on skin for cosmetics. Search on Goog and the first link will tell you about this. Yet they are putting it in this toothpaste!!? It can release formaldehyde, which is a recognized in causing cancer. Can you imagine what the effect of actually ingesting small quantities of it over a long period of time would be? I'm not going to find out! I'm going to search for other non-fluoride alternatives.

I like the fact this is natural as my littlest ones probably swallow all their tooth paste! All 3 of mine like the flavour and even ask to brush their teeth twice as they like it so much!!
