Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate

Why on earth does a company that goes to the trouble of soy based inks on its packaging to appear natural, think it needed to have a foaming agent at all, when did we learn that was a necessary part of toothpaste? The chemical in question still creates carcinogenic by-products and is listed as "wash off applications only". So putting it on the most absorbent mucous membranes in your body is pure madness. If I didn't live in NZ I'd be posting it back.

Not that bad, but contains sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, hydrated silica and glycerin.

There are some good things about this anise toothpaste: it's free of SLS, fluoride, parabens, propylene glycol, PEGs, saccharin and artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners and doesn't contain mint, which makes it suitable for people suffering from acid reflux, heartburn and gastritis, because mint may aggravate these conditions, but it does contain sodium lauroyl sarcosinate and hydrated silica. Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate is a synthetic surfactant and foaming, emulsifying and viscosity controlling agent, which is suspected to be an environmental toxin, allergen and irritant. Hydrated silica is a pretty harsh abrasive which may harm and damage the enamel and prevent its remineralization. Glycerin is a safe ingredient but sometimes may interfere with the remineralization of the tooth enamel. The other ingredients are not that bad, though: calcium carbonate and sodium chloride are relatively mild abrasives, aloe vera juice is known for soothing and healing sore gums, reducing redness and inflammation, relieving the symptoms of gingivitis and parodontosis, calcium glycerophosphate is a safe antiplaque agent, carrageenan (natural, not its degraded and chemically processed variety, poligeenan) is a natural thickener made from seaweed, bisabol ol, anise oil, soap bark, white tea leaf, pomegranate, cranberry, grape seed and ginger root extracts are great for preventing and reducing plaque and tartar build-up, killing harmful tooth decay-causing bacteria and stimulating the growth of tooth-protective, non-acidic bacteria, removing stains, strengthening the enamel, protecting against caries, fighting halitosis and prom oting fresh breath. But overall, there are better and safer mint-free toothpastes out there.

I love the flavor of this toothpaste. It leaves the mouth feeling fresh and very clean, and the taste is superb, especially if one enjoys anise. It is fluoride free, which is a big plus.

I've used this for years. I'm 57 yr. old, dentists can't believe how healthy my gums are. I love the taste!
