Plastic Microbeads in Tooth Paste - What?!

The company, Proctor & Gamble, will be removing the polyethylene microbeads from its Crest toothpaste line. This comes after a dental hygienist spoke about finding the blue plastic pieces in the patient’s gums, which can trap bacteria in the gums and can lead to gingivitis and even periodontitis. Although the ADA suggested that clinical studies show that microbeads do not pose a health risk, many dentists and hygienists in the United States had noticed these microbeads in people’s gums. That doesn’t sound good now, does it?

Besides microbeads, it's important to be cautious of various chemicals and ingredients in products, as some can pose health risks and act as neurotoxins. Such ingredients include fluoride, SLS, paraben, and other. To learn more about toxic ingredients in tooth paste, please visit blog, Top 5 Toothpaste Ingredients to Avoid
