|Chlorophyllin Copper Complex||Coloring Agent||This is the green-colored substance found in the chlorophyll of plants. While it is mainly used as a coloring agent in food products, it also contains a deodorizing ability and is combined in toothpaste to prevent bad breath.|
|Peppermint Oil||Flavoring Agent||Derived from the peppermint plant. Peppermint oil is the essential oil made by the steam distillation of the aboveground portion of the peppermint plant which is then cooled to separate the crude menthol and further refined to adjust the menthol content. Menthol is made by the further refining of the crude menthol by recrystallization.|

icon-check-square-o The Increasing Need for Better Oral Health Care.A study by dental experts regarding how oral bacteria majorly affect the overall health of the body has become a hot topic in the United States. The Society of Internal Medicine in Dentistry was founded based on the findings that many lifestyle diseases are caused by bacteria entering the body through veins in the oral cavity. The awareness that good oral care is essential to maintaining and preserving good comprehensive health is also rapidly growing in Japan.
icon-check-square-o Safety In Your Daily CareEven when not swallowed the mouth slowly absorbs substances into the body due to sublingual and transcutaneous absorption. The inside of the mouth which made up of mucous membranes, is an absorptive area, particularly the sublingual area, as demonstrated by nitroglycerin tablets, a sublingually-administered myocardial infarction medication. While many toothpastes contain petroleum-based surfactants and chemicals to increase cleansing abilities, a safety level equivalent to food products is imperative in a toothpaste used every day in oral care.
icon-check-square-o Substances Contained in Many Toothpastes
icon-times Sodium lauryl sulfate (Petroleum-type Surfactant)Many commercial types of toothpaste contain petroleum-type substances which are easily absorbed from the oral mucosa and then accumulate in the body. These are prohibited in food additives, yet used in toothpastes.
icon-times FluorideThere are reports that the cancerogenesis rate is higher in water-fluoridated areas than in non-water-fluoridated areas. Toothpastes that contain fluoride may lead to higher chances of cancer and is being identified as a serious problem.
