Lumineux Oral Essentials
Lumineux Oral Essentials is what we needed in the marketplace. The company provides high-quality toothpaste that is not dangerous to use. By saying dangerous, I don’t mean that you will have direct problems visible on your health status if you use conventional toothpaste. Using regular toothpaste will not make you ill. You can not tell the difference. But in many other combinations, which include factors of using something that is not natural and has the potential to become hazardous, using a natural toothpaste may make the difference.
Some people who do not care about their health eat junk food all the time, drink, smoke, and maybe even use drugs should not start to change their lives by switching from conventional to natural toothpaste. They have more significant problems to combat. Many people are not aware of the issues and things they do to the body. Because of that choice, natural toothpaste is not really that popular. Simultaneously, we can say that people are starting to choose natural toothpaste over conventional, and the proof is this company and many others.
The company exists if they have customers, so the natural product customers are growing. The world is sick and tired of cheap, low-quality, and at the same time unhealthy products. Many companies produce cheap toothpaste and then sell it for a high price. They are making huge profits; I hope the natural toothpaste companies will change this.
Lumineux Oral Essentials Toothpaste
The company so far released four different types of toothpaste. They basically covered all the needs. If you are looking for natural whitening toothpaste, then you will choose Lumineux Oral Essentials Whitening. The clean and Fresh formula is a standard formula whose primary purpose is to keep your mouth fresh and clean. If you have sensitive teeth, then you should choose the Sensitivity formula. The company even covered kids with their kid’s recipe, which has a beautiful design and taste of the strawberry. I bet your kids will love the strawberry taste; I know mine does.
Lumineux Oral Essentials Toothpaste Main Ingredients
An extremely popular ingredient not only in toothpaste but in all other cosmetic products. The world knows a good property of aloe vera. In the toothpaste is used a leaf juice.
Vegetable Glycerin and Hydrated Silica
Glycerin is not a wanted component, and I am sure I have to bash other toothpaste brands for using it. Still, here we are talking about natural vegetable glycerin and hydrated silica that is derived from nature. Now I am not sure about the process of doing that. Still, the company claims that vegetable glycerine and naturally hydrated silica are easy on enamel and much better choices than standard glycerin and silica.
Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate
Unfortunately, this is a foaming agent, but thankfully it is not as harmful as SLS. It is derived naturally from coconut fat, and that makes it natural. There is not much other information about this component, so I can’t say if it is good or bad. Let’s call it questionable but good.
The cleaning power and health benefits of Lumineux Oral Essentials toothpaste are coming from leaf oil. The toothpaste formula uses various types of leaf oil, wintergreen, peppermint, and spearmint.
I have talked about carrageenan ingredients in the ingredients category. It is one ingredient that you should avoid in toothpaste because many companies don’t label what type of carrageenan they use. Lumineux Oral Essentials marked them, and you can read that the carrageenan is food grade which means it is safe to use. Also, only 0.03% is used in the formula; by putting it all on paper, the carrageenan is not the problem in this toothpaste.
I wouldn’t say I liked it before, but with time my experience and knowledge grow, and I can now say that my standing on this ingredient is neutral. I still say that this component is not needed, but if the company still uses it in their formula, I will not say anything bad about it because the element is harmless.
Now we got to the part that makes this whole claim of the safe to swallow toothpaste under a question. I am not sure how much of this component is in the toothpaste. Still, I have written before on other reviews that Titanium dioxide is carcinogenic and even websites that deal with cosmetic safety put an alert on this ingredient. Honestly, I don’t know what they were thinking when adding this component. Is it essential to the formula?
In my humble opinion, this component can just drive customers away. I am sorry, but I am that customer; I won’t put something that is potentially carcinogenic in my mouth, not to say putting it into my kid’s mouth.
UPDATE: Titanium dioxide is considered safe now.
Each toothpaste has additional ingredients that are not that important and does not make any difference to the product. Kids formula contains natural strawberry flavor. The sensitivity formula has some acidic ingredients left from the original formula, and that’s it.
I can still suggest this toothpaste to people who have no concerns about titanium dioxide, and by no means, this toothpaste is a hundred times better than any conventional toothpaste. But there are rankings; some toothpaste brands are better than others.
Lumineux Oral Essentials is not the best, and I am saying that mainly because of titanium dioxide usage. If some of the Lumineux Oral Essentials workers are reading this, I would like to know the explanation behind this ingredient; I would gladly share it with my audience. Maybe there is something that we don’t know, and they do. Until then, I am rating this toothpaste as a mediocre natural toothpaste brand.
