Dr. Brite - Natural Whitening Toothpaste
Dr. Brite has a new natural toothpaste brand on the market. And it appears they did a fantastic job in DR. Brite company. Not only this Toothpaste is free from Fluoride and SLS, but it is also colors and sweeteners free. They claim this toothpaste is 100% natural. That is a bold statement.
But Dr. Brite Toothpaste has great ingredients that will keep your teeth white and gums healthy. As well this toothpaste will prevent cavities. Main healthy ingredients are Organic Green Tea Extract, Organic Spearmint Extract, Activated Bamboo White Charcoal, Menthol, and Organic Coconut Oil. But other than these ingredients there are others. Organic Stevia is probably there to make this toothpaste sweet since it is not using any artificial sweeteners. Using organic stevia is a much better solution than using sorbitol or other artificial chemicals to make toothpaste sweet.
Dr. Brite Toothpaste Have Some Questionable Ingredients
Now, this toothpaste has some questionable ingredients. Some parts are confusing like organic glycerin. Not sure how can you make organic glycerin if this is a chemical component made in the laboratory. As well glycerin is a sugar alcohol, an artificial sweetener used in food processing. So there is a big question mark on the statement if this toothpaste is free from artificial sugar.
Organic Xylitol can go in the same basket as organic glycerine. Nowadays you can get an organic certificate for whatever you want. Soon we will see organic fluoride in toothpaste. Also, I need to say if you decide to buy this toothpaste then make sure your dog doesn’t eat it because xylitol is very hazardous to dogs.
But the biggest problem with Dr. Brite Toothpaste is that this company uses marketing tricks. They say Vitamin-C infused Whitening Toothpaste. You would think, oh great this toothpaste have vitamins. But in reality, they use ascorbic acid. And ascorbic acid is a drug, artificially made form of Vitamin C.
So we have organic ingredients that are made in the laboratory, so it is really questionable how come an ingredient is organic if it is made in the laboratory by mixing chemicals. And some certificate company gave an organic certificate on that. That smooth organic certification only means that you need to be really careful with a product you buy. Even if it is certified as organic, it is highly possible that it is not organic.
We live in a corporate world, companies that have lots of money can get what they want. I don’t say that this is what happened here, but you need to admit that this story is weird. And these organic statements are at least funny if not fake. Maybe they read this review and send me a message with more details. But until then I can’t say anything else.
Dr. Brite toothpaste is excellent for your teeth. It will make them healthy with all that healthy ingredients. There are some of the ingredients that are questionable but nothing too bad. The main problematic ingredients like fluoride and SLS are not in the toothpaste so I would say this toothpaste is safe to use.
