Did you know that you can make your own coconut oil toothpaste with just a few simple ingredients that you have in your kitchen?
Not only is coconut oil toothpaste effective, with it you can avoid all of the chemicals and toxic ingredients in commercial toothpaste and save money!
Ingredients To Watch Out For In Toothpaste
All commercial toothpaste contain harmful and toxic ingredients, such as; titanium dioxide, FD&C Blue Dye # 1 & 2, sodium lauryl sulfate, and sodium fluoride. These ingredients can also be found in toothpaste that is labeled “all natural”, particularly sodium fluoride. These chemicals are not only harmful to your delicate tooth enamel, they also affect your overall health! Glycerin is another ingredient to be cautious of as it can inhibit remineralization of teeth. It is often an ingredient in fluoride-free toothpaste as well.
How Coconut Oil Toothpaste Works
Coconut oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal! Studies have shown that coconut oil destroys the bacteria that can cause tooth decay. The other primary ingredient in this toothpaste is baking soda. Baking soda is a very mild abrasive which aids in cleaning and whitening teeth, and restoring pH balance.

Have you tried a baking soda and coconut oil toothpaste?
市面上的牙膏大部分都含有對人體有毒害的成分，如二氧化鈦，FD＆C 藍染料＃1＆2、月桂基硫酸鈉(SLS)、丙三醇和氟化鈉等。縱使有些牙膏標明為“全天然”，當中還是會包含這些化學成份，氟化鈉（sodium fluoride）更是極普遍的成份。這些化學物質不僅危害牙齒的琺瑯質，它們也會影響你的整體健康！一般來說，購買牙膏時最好選擇無氟牙膏（fluoride-free）。
