Sweets equal cavities … right? One company hopes to prove that a certain unexpected toothpaste ingredient could be the key to a healthy mouth: cocoa. Theodent claims that the cocoa bean can replace fluoride to successfully rebuild tooth enamel, an assertion that’s backed by the founder’s doctoral research. But know that this product doesn’t taste like dessert. Customers will still get that minty flavor they expect from a toothpaste.
Vermont Soap Neem Extra Strength Toothsalt
Here’s a grain of wisdom to share with shoppers: Salt can be a great addition to an oral care routine. Vermont Soap combines a handful of natural ingredients that are good for teeth and gums—baking soda, table salt, neem and essential oils—to emulate the ancient practice of gargling with salt water to maintain oral hygiene. Sprinkled onto a wet toothbrush, this formula helps quell bacteria, strengthen teeth and maintain overall oral health.
Desert Essence Natural Neem Mouthwash
Conventional mouthwash may freshen breath, but a mouthful of chemical surfactants and artificial flavors and colors is not what we’d call clean. Desert Essence’s refreshing alternative tackles a range of oral concerns with a blend of plant and mineral ingredients. Neem extracts take on bacteria buildup, zinc citrate reduces plaque, and calendula, sage and aloe soothe irritated gums. Swish. Gargle. Rinse. And, go ahead, repeat!
Dr. Bronner’s All-One Toothpaste
This just-launched toothpaste line upholds Dr. Bronner’s long-held commitment to clean products. These pastes use mild abrasives such as organic coconut oil and coconut flour and come in three flavors: Peppermint, Cinnamon and (our favorite) Anise. Made with 70 percent organic ingredients, they’ve earned the NSF/ANSI 305 “contains organic ingredients” certification. And did we mention these toothpastes are vegan and non-GMO? Now that leaves a good taste in our mouths.
