Collection: TOOTHPASTE

  1. Abrasives: These are mild abrasives like calcium carbonate or silica that help to physically remove plaque and surface stains from the teeth.

  2. Fluoride: Most toothpastes contain fluoride, which is a mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel and protect against tooth decay.

  3. Humectants: These ingredients, such as glycerin or sorbitol, help to retain moisture in the toothpaste and maintain its consistency.

  4. Binders and thickeners: These substances give toothpaste its texture and stability. Examples include carboxymethylcellulose or xanthan gum.

  5. Detergents: Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is a common detergent used in toothpaste. It creates foam and aids in the removal of debris and bacteria from the teeth and gums.

  6. Flavoring agents: Various flavors, such as mint, spearmint, or fruit, are added to toothpaste to improve taste and freshness.
