Squigle Toothpaste - Tooth Builder
Product Name: Squigle Toothpaste - Tooth Builder
Product Description: Tooth Builder is not vegan-friendly since it uses lactoferrin, lactoferrin has an antimicrobial purpose, and it is derived from cows' milk. It would be better if they obtained this protein from rice or some other plant. But lactoferrin is not a dangerous ingredient.
One of the many natural toothpaste brand fans sends us a link to review and write an article about Tooth Builder by Squigle. Before that, I never heard of Squigle. But Squigle is not a young company. They are on the market since 1998 year. They claim that in recent years they were the 6th most popular toothpaste on the internet and saying that the top 5 places take big guys that spend millions on advertising. I m euphoric to read on their website about SLS and other irritating ingredients. They are aware of them, and they know that many “natural toothpaste brands” still use chemicals that have nothing to do with the natural world. Just remember our recent reviews of several Ayurvedic kinds of toothpaste. Squigle claims they do not use detergents, irritating chemicals, or other chemical substances that are a hazard to human health.
But you need to be careful with Squigle because it contains 36% Xylitol. Xylitol is harmless to humans, but it is hazardous if your dog licks it. Make sure your dog goes nowhere near Squigle toothpaste.
Squigle Toothpaste is Hypoallergenic
That means you are safe to use it, and you won’t have any allergic reactions. Squigle toothpaste is not tested on animals, and it is free from all kinds of chemicals that are known to be harmful to health. But Tooth Builder is not vegan-friendly since it uses lactoferrin, lactoferrin has an antimicrobial purpose, and it is derived from cows’ milk. It would be better if they obtained this protein from rice or some other plant. But lactoferrin is not a dangerous ingredient. In the first days of a baby’s birth, mother milk contains six times more lactoferrin than cows’ milk.
Methocel is really not a needed chemical. Squigle says it is derived from trees, and that is fine and natural. But toothpaste does not need to foam. If it foams, that does not mean it will clean your teeth better.
Cellulose Gum is another additive; yes, I am using the word additive despite the claim not to use additives. But Tooth Builder uses additives, with additives products, which are selling better and last longer. But the good thing is that they claim all their additives are obtained from nature. Cellulose gum is naturally found in all plants.
Poloxamer is probably the worst ingredient in Tooth Builder Toothpaste. Poloxamer is a controversial part. There is not much info about it. But one study shows that it can increase High Cholesterol if taken in significant amounts. But in the toothpaste, we have small numbers, so the danger is not real.
Glycerin is not needed in toothpaste, like we said many times before.
Squigle Tooth Builder Toothpaste is promising; it does not contain any dangerous elements. But it is not vegan-friendly because of lactoferrin obtained from cows’ milk. It contains natural additives to make this product attractive. I can’t rate it 10/10 because 10/10 is natural toothpaste with zero or just a few questionable ingredients. Unfortunately, Squigle has more than one controversial element. But I need to say that Squigle toothpaste is safe to use.
