Fancy Fangs is our daily toothpaste that is Fluoride, SLS, xylitol, and glycerin free!
What's wrong with commercial toothpaste? When it comes to "regular" toothpaste, there are better and safer alternatives. If you read the tube or box your toothpaste comes in, you will notice a warning stating that if you swallow the toothpaste, you should call poison control. Why? Because their toothpaste contains several potentially dangerous chemicals, one of these is called fluoride.
Even "natural" toothpaste brands contain high levels of glycerin. When there are high levels of glycerin left on our teeth, it takes quite a long time before it wears off and our enamel can properly strengthen again. This leaves teeth susceptible to cavities. Fancy Fangs is all natural and good for you!
Although fluoride has been shown to potentially achieve results in re-strengthening enamel, it is also a toxic substance linked to many health problems. The reason why we do not recommend fluoride toothpaste is because the majority of the time, it is in your water, your toothpaste, and applied at the dentist. Too much is being applied and therefore it is doing more harm than good. (Using too much fluoride can make the teeth too brittle and therefore more susceptible to cavities and dental fluorosis. Considering that 1 in 3 children in the US now have dental fluorosis, we are clearly using too much fluoride.)
Most people are used to squeezing toothpaste from a tube, but we at Haven do not want to use plastic and avoid it in our packaging. The base of our toothpaste is germ fighting coconut oil, so dipping your brush in the jar to get at the toothpaste is not a problem. Simply apply to bristles and brush away!
We use kid safe spearmint instead of peppermint EO- so this product is safe for the whole family.
With there being more effective and safer alternatives, using fluoride is not a healthy choice. Another reason is that toothpastes contain ingredients like polyethylene glycols, triclosan, strontium, benzene, and tin, which are all potentially harmful to human health.
We recommend following up with Swish and Spit, our gum and mouth rinse for optimum mouth health.
Our toothpaste comes in a 2 oz. glass screwtop jar and can be used by the whole family!
