We continue on our quest to find natural, healthy alternatives to commercial products and their various “can I trust this?” style ingredients.
First things first: Our latest discovery – a natural toothpaste formula – is a straight-up money saver! The kind folks over at DIYNAtural.com have calculated the costs for you, and figured out that the cost will be approximately $1 for the same amount of product as a $5 tube of one of the better toothpaste brands.
The formula is astonishingly simple, and includes baking soda, sea salt (optional), peppermint essential oil and a little filtered water.
I can already pre-empt the most common question that people are going to ask: Isn’t baking soda too abrasive to use on your teeth?
The surprising answer is provided by DIYNAtural, who state that (I didn’t know about this!) there is a thing called the Relative Dentin Abrasivity scale. Astonishingly, baking soda is listed as being considerably less abrasive than any of the commercial brands of toothpaste.
Looking into it a little further (I don’t like to just rely on one source of information!) I found that several other sources make the same claim. I uncovered the chart (presumably originating from the American Dental Assoc., seeing as it is their research) that shows the Relative Dentin Abrasivity of various toothpastes and there it is! Plain Baking Soda is the least abrasive of all.
Where it gets really interesting is when you consider the correlation between abrasiveness and “whitening power”. Obviously, the more abrasive, the more it will remove stains. However, the “dark side” of this is that a more abrasive toothpaste may remove more than just stains – and in the drive for increased whiteness, the envelope may well have been pushed too far.
Note also that the abrasiveness will be greatly affected by how hard you brush!
One last tip: Be sure to use pure baking soda and not baking powder (which contains baking soda but also may contain other ingredients).
