Did you know our Brightening Antioxidant contains Aloe Vera Leaf Juice? On the inci list you will see Aqua is the first ingredient on the list, however, you will also see that Aloe Vera Leaf Juice powder is further down on the inci list…. this is because when water and aloe vera leaf juice powder are mixed, they make aloe vera leaf juice powder. Ta da!
We made the decision to combine the two instead of having straight aloe vera leaf juice as the first ingredient due to cost, wastage, carbon emissions and due to our product being a toothpaste, powders are used in a greater concentration in toothpastes for texture and efficacy.
Our manufacturer is able to use their purified water that they have onsite and combine it with the aloe vera leaf juice meaning that we only need to ship the powder to them, saving on packaging, space and keeping carbon emissions to a minimum.
Aloe vera leaf juice contains numerous compounds that benefit dental health when used in toothpaste.
Here are some ways aloe vera is good for dental health:
- Anti-inflammatory: Aloe vera contains compounds that can help reduce inflammation in the mouth. This is helpful for people with gum disease or other oral health problems.
- Antibacterial: Aloe vera has antibacterial properties that hep fight against harmful bacteria in the mouth. This in turn will prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
- Soothing: Aloe vera has a soothing effect on the gums and oral tissues, which helps alleviate discomfort associated with oral health problems.
- Moisturising: Aloe vera will help moisturize the mouth and prevent dryness, which can contribute to bad breath and other oral health issues.
When used in toothpaste, aloe vera helps promote healthy teeth and gums, reduce inflammation and bacterial growth, and provide a gentle, moisturising effect.
Keep you eye on our blogs, I’m going to give you a run down of every single ingredient in the toothpaste and why we use it. ALL of the ingredients are in there to benefit dental health, no ingredient is filler in our toothpaste 🙂
