Natural Toothpastes

April 30, 2014


Trenutno imam v v kopalnici kar tri naravne zobne paste in zakaj jim torej ne bi posvetila današnje objave? Kot v kozmetičnih izdelkih, se tudi v zobnih pastah skriva marsikatera nepotrebna in celo škodljiva sestavina, kot je na primer fluorid. Pustimo naravni fluorid, ki ni enak kemikaliji fluorid, ki je le stranski produkt, ki nastane pri pridobivanju aluminija in jekla ter v nuklearni industriji. Fluor povečuje verjetnost zlomov kosti, osteoporoze, poškodb živčevja, bolečin v sklepih ter glavobolov. Povezujejo ga tudi s splavi, genetskimi okvarami, nekaterimi vrstami raka, pešanjem spomina, intelektualno počasnostjo in zmanjševanjem IQ-ja. Amm ja, ne hvala! Pojdimo zato raje kar na zobne paste, ki fluorida ne vsebujejo. :)

Sante Toothpaste Mint
Sante Natural Toothpaste Mint
Sante zobna pasta neguje in ščiti zobe in dlesni z aktivnimi sestavinami, kot so žajbelj, zeleni čaj, meta in ksilitol. Izdelek je veganski, ne vsebuje sestavin živalskega in sintetičnega izvora, ter je brez glutena. Na sestavine zobnih past se sicer ne spoznam ravno najbolje, a barvilo titanov dioksid se mi zdi čisto nepotreben. Zobna pasta je bele barve, goste konsistence, za naravno zobno pasto se dobro peni. Eterično olje peperminta oziroma poprove mete krasno osveži dah ter odlično očisti zobe, tudi po žvrkljanju olja. Pred tem sem uporabljala tudi Sante zobno pasto z miro, a mi je ta z meto ljubša. Na voljo v različnih trgovinah, jaz sem jo kupila v Dm-u.

 Redmond Earthpaste Wintergreen
Redmond Earthpaste Amazingly Natural Toothpaste Wintergreen
Najbolj popularna zobna pasta med "zelenimi blogerkami" in tudi najbolj naravna pasta, kar sem jih preizkusila. Vsebuje le nekaj sestavin, ki so popolnoma varne in zobno pasto lahko tudi pojeste. Saj ne, da bi to želela ampak za otroke je pa super, ki jo pogosto več pojejo kot pa izpljunejo. :) Vsebuje torej vodo, glino, ksilitol, sol in eterična olja. Zobna pasta je drugačna kot ostali dve, ne vsebuje nobenih penilcev in se zelo, zelo malo peni oziroma skoraj nič. Čeprav ne maram, da se zobne paste preveč penijo, je občutek nepenjenja dokaj nenavaden, sploh, če si celo življenje vajen, da se pasta peni. Zobna pasta je tako tudi kar precej tekoča in umivanje zob nad umivalnikom je nujno. Pasta ni ravno najlepše barve, je rjava, pač po glini. Neverjetno pa pusti svež dah in dobro očisti zobe. Uporabljam jo le zvečer, ker zjutraj po žrvkljanju zob ne očisti dovolj dobro, takrat imam vseeno raje, da se malo peni. Imam tako boljši občutek. :) Kupila sem jo na iHerbu, je pa eden izmed izdelkov, ki bi jih z lahkoto ustvarili le doma, malo vode, gline in eteričnih olj in zobna pasta je narejena.

Himalaya Toothpaste Neem Pomegranate
Himalaya Toothpaste Neem Pomegranate
Moja zadnja pridobitev je Himalayina zobna pasta z neemom in granatnim jabolkom. Vsebuje tudi triphalo, ki jo zvesto uživam, glicerin, ksilitol, mentol, sol in vrsto drugih indijskih rastlinskih izvlečkov. Med vsemi se mi zdi najbolj podobna konvencionalnim zobnim pastam, tako po teksturi kot zmožnosti penjenja. Zobe in ustno votlino pusti zelo sveže in očiščeno, odlična je za jutranje umivanje zob po žvrkljanju olja. Dobila sem jo na iHerbu, ko si jo lahko dobil brezplačno, ne dvomim pa, da jo bom naslednjič kupila. :) Himalaya Toothpaste Neem Pomegranate ingredients

Morda za nekatere malce nenavadno a pri naravnih zobnih pastah mi je najljubše to, da me ne pečejo tako kot so me "navadne". Včasih mi je šlo pa res že na živce, ko mi je skoraj jezik pregorel, pa imam drugače kar rada pekočo hrano. :) 
Med naravnimi zobnimi pastami sem med drugim preizkusila tudi Alverdino, ki je mimogrede zanič, so pa zato Weledine zobne paste zelo dobre.


Translation
At the moment I'm using three natural toothpastes so why not write a post about them? As in skincare, bodycare and other cosmetic products there are some pretty nasty ingredients in toothpastes as well. Fluoride is one of them. Don't mind the natural fluoride which is good but fluoride in conventional toothpastes is all but good. It's a by-product of extraction of aluminium, steel and the nuclear industry. Flouride increases the likelihood of bone fractures, osteoporosis, nerve damage, joint pain and headaches. It's also associated with miscarriages, genetic defects, certain types of cancer, memory dysfunction and reducing IQ. Um yeah, no thanks! So let's rather talk about toothpastes that don't contain fluoride.
Sante Toothpaste Mint cleans and protects teeth and gums with active formulation of sage, green tea, peppermint oil and xylitol. It's vegan, it doesn't contain any animal derived ingredients, synthetic colors, fragrances and preservatives. It's also gluten free. The toothpaste has a thick consistency and it lathers quite well. It has a very pleasant taste and it makes my breath nice and fresh, even after oil pulling. I also used Sante toothpaste with myrrh but this one is in my experience way better.
Redmond Earthapste Wintergreen is the "it" toothpaste in the green blogger community. It contains only a few ingredients which are completely safe to eat - perfect for kids. They mix some purified water, clay, xylitol, essential oils, salt and that is it. A toothpaste you could easily make at home! Toothpaste doesn't contain any foaming agents so it doesn't lather, well maybe just a little but definitely not much. Because of that it's quite runny so brushing your teeth over the sink is necessary. The toothpaste isn't the prettiest, it's brown but that's the colour of clay. I don't mind that but the first time trying it was a bit strange. Also because it doesn't foam and I'm just used to that. My main negative for this toothpaste would have to be that I can only use it in the evenings because it doesn't clean my teeth after oil pulling in the mornings as well as I would like. But otherwise it works lovely.
My latest natural toothpaste is the Himalaya Toothpaste Neem Pomegranate that I got for free on iHerb. It contains vegetable glycerin, xylitiol, menthol, salt, water, neem, triphala, pomegranate... Among all I find it most similar to conventional toothpastes, both in texture and foaming ability. It leaves my teeth and breath really fresh and clean, it's the perfect toothpaste after oil pulling.
The one thing I really like about these natural toothpastes is that they don't sting! I find that quite annoying. :) I've also tested the Alverde toothpaste which I don't recommend, but I did like the Weleda's toothpastes, they work great.

  1. Ta Sante zobna pasta pa meni ni bila všeč, saj veš :) Earthpaste mi res dobro očisti zobe, najraje imam tisto z okusom peperminta. Enkrat sem kupila tudi tisto z okusom limone, "otroško" verzijo, samo mi ni bila niti pol tako všeč kot pepermint :)) Poleg te pa uporabljam še dr. organic zobno pasto, antibakterijsko. Tista druga, ko jo še imajo v ponudbi, mi spet ni bila ok ;)

  11. Tudi jaz sem izogibam tej sestavini, sem se pa težko navadila, da se zobna pasta ne peni :) Ko se navadiš, je pa super.
