From the description of Hello toothpaste, you can see something is not clear. Hello toothpaste is not natural toothpaste. But they are using marketing tricks and twist some words so a customer can think it is a natural product. Natural Friendly Hello Oral Care, they say. What the hell does that mean? You will see below when we go and investigate each ingredient how natural friendly they are.
But before we talk about bad things, let say some good stuff. This toothpaste has breathtaking packaging. I like the package colors and fonts they use. American Dental Association accepted this toothpaste. But after you read what I have to say about their ingredients you will care very little who ADA accepts and who they don’t accept.
Description of Hello toothpaste:
“say hello to our naturally friendly™ anticavity toothpaste. our original flavors, supermint, pink grapefruit mint and mojito mint, have earned the ADA seal and are clinically proven to prevent cavities and strengthen enamel. they safely polish teeth with a gentle silica and freshen your breath, but hold on, there’s more. our pastes are also free from preservatives, dyes, triclosan, microbeads and artificial sweeteners, and they rock xylitol and stevia.
and wait for it, here’s the best part: they taste freakin’ awesome. our new peach mango mint toothpaste, like all our pastes, is so delicious, you’ll develop a crush on your brush. Seriously”
What do I say:
You use word natural and use fluoride in the toothpaste. Even monkey on the tree knows that fluoride is poison. I won’t even talk here about fluoride. But we don’t want fluoride in our mouth!!!
Ok, now I m getting nervous. Sorbitol is the sugar alcohol. It is also a sweetener.
Gentle? Not sure how gentle Hydrated Silica is inside Hello toothpaste, but silica is silica, brushing with it will hurt your enamel.
I see this in every toothpaste. They simply don’t have the solution to make a pasty feeling in your mouth without this ingredient. And Glycerin is preventing remineralization of your teeth.
This component is very natural friendly. Only if a dog eats this component, it will die. So it must be people over there at Hello have a different definition of natural.
Others are dropping this ingredient, but Hello keeps it and calls it natural. Xanthan Gum is additive. Collected from fermented sugar. People with diabetes and pregnant woman should avoid this product.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
I m not sure if I should laugh or cry. This ingredient is kicked out from most of the natural toothpaste brands. Fluoride and SLS are the worst things in toothpaste. They are primary ingredients in conventional toothpaste.
If you think things can go worse, then listen what titanium dioxide is. Titanium Dioxide by recent research is an ingredient that can cause cancer. It is a highly controversial component, and recent research can link this ingredient to cancer.
Hello Toothpaste Review
I have nothing against Hello toothpaste. They are good for people that don’t care for their health. But using the word natural on something that is so against nature is bad. As a conventional toothpaste, this toothpaste is same as all others. But if you compare this to some of the best natural toothpaste, then Hello toothpaste is poison.
