Weleda is one of the most popular brands. Weleda is selling health products since 1921. Not only they are a leading brand in the toothpaste market, but they are also having decent products for face, body and hair. But our Weleda review will be focused on Weleda Ratanhia Toothpaste. And from the start I will say that this is not the best toothpaste Weleda made. We already did reviews of Weleda Natural Salt Toothpaste and Weleda Plant Gel Toothpaste, and so far Salt toothpaste is way better than others.
Weleda Ratanhia Toothpaste Ingredients
Ratanhia toothpaste is having few questionable ingredients that many people like to avoid in their mouths. One of them is Xanthan Gum. Like many times before we said; Xanthan Gum is additive and is really not needed in toothpaste. Many other kinds of toothpaste do not use this ingredient. Also little kids and pregnant woman should avoid products containing Xanthan Gum at all cost.
Glycerine is another component that is not needed in toothpaste. Toothpaste manufacturers use this element to make more soft feeling. So customers like that pasty taste in their mouth. So it is a marketing trick and not really a valuable health component. And when something is inside toothpaste to make you more money, then you can have a big question mark about this component health benefits.
Alumina or, in other words, Aluminum Dioxide is another question mark on natural toothpaste. How come this ingredient can be natural. Also, what are health benefits with putting Aluminum Dioxide in your mouth? People in modern day avoid all kind of metal dust near them and here we have Aluminum Dioxide in toothpaste. And there is also Magnesium Aluminum Silicate which passed many scientific tests and it is listed as safe. But please read the full details about these scientific researchers about Magnesium Aluminum Silicate. By reading that I will just avoid products with that ingredient, because there are some signs that this element could be carcinogenic.
Limonene is an element that can trigger allergic reactions in people that are prone to allergies. Also, this toothpaste uses Alcohol. Why on earth do you want alcohol in toothpaste. We must be happy there are no some more heavy drugs inside this toothpaste.
Good parts int his toothpaste are essential oils that are derived naturally. Also extract from Ratanhia can have many health benefits. Ratanhia is the native plant in Bolivia and Peru. Native people in Bolivia and Peru used this plant to strengthen their teeth and make they gums healthy.
I must admit that I don’t like this Weleda toothpaste. Too many possibly dangerous ingredients that can actually harm your health in long run. Using Aluminium in your mouth every day brings a big question mark over my head. That absolutely makes no sense. If you are interested in a healthy product, and you don’t want to change your brand, you want to stay with Weleda. I suggest to you to use Weleda Salt Toothpaste. Weleda Salt Toothpaste have no questionable ingredients, and I am sure it will clean your teeth as good as any other conventional or natural toothpaste.
