The next time you take a swig of that cool, minty-fresh mouthwash, read the label.
ACT, one of the top sellers contains ingredients such as sodium saccharin, sorbitol, green dye #3, and yellow dye #5. It’s more bad news for standard mouthwash, which recently was revealed to increase the risk of cancer.
Instead of sodium lauryl sulfate, a common ingredient that acts as a detergent and produces foam in toothpaste, The Natural Dentist uses a coconut-based ingredient.
Product labels and printed materials are produced with soy ink, which has low VOC levels (volatile organic compounds) that contribute to air pollution; and all products are vegetarian/vegan and have earned the cruelty-free product seal from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
Now go ahead – rinse and brush with a good conscience!
