Is Natural Toothpaste Good for You?

A healthy smile is the best accessory! We have our teeth for life, so it’s important that we do everything possible to protect them. With so many options on the market these days, it can be challenging for those of us who are health and environmentally conscious to make an informed choice. At ROCC, we share the same values as you, we’re all about clean and effective oral care that’s kind to Mother Earth. Let’s dive into the world of natural toothpaste to set the record straight on why it’s the best line of defence for your pearly whites.

 What is Natural Toothpaste?

 Have you ever looked at the ingredients list of your toothpaste? Given most of us brush our teeth while we’re still in a sleepy daze in the morning or are rushing to hit the hay after a long day, I think we can safely assume the answer to that one is probably no! You may be shocked to find that popular brands contain nasties and numbers that just aren’t necessary for your teeth, and quite frankly we doubt you want them in your personal care products at all. Natural toothpaste is made from ingredients that are naturally derived, meaning they aren’t synthetic or contain potentially harmful chemicals that we can hardly pronounce. They contain ingredients like coconut oil, xylitol, as well as herbs and extracts that promote healthy teeth and gums as well as tasting amazing – yes please.

Is Natural Toothpaste Effective? 

Have we got you thinking about making the switch from conventional to natural toothpaste, but want to be confident that you can maintain an effective oral health routine? Very smart of you, we like your style. Natural toothpaste has all the important functions of its conventional counterpart like keeping your teeth clean and healthy, without ingredients like dyes, SLS or artificial preservatives or flavourings. At ROCC, our toothpaste is packed with essential minerals and vitamins and flavoured with natural ingredients like mint, coconut, and green tea, along with biodegradable packaging so you can feel good about your decision, for yourself, your precious family, and the environment.

 Is Natural Toothpaste Better Than Regular Toothpaste?

It’s important to note here that not all natural toothpastes are made the same. At ROCC, we base our formulas on scientific studies to ensure that not only are our products cleaner than conventional toothpaste and eco-friendly, but they also actually do what they’re supposed to. We offer different formulas to suit your needs, whether that’s an everyday toothpaste beneficial for vegans with added B12 to help keep your energy levels up, our signature toothpaste for seriously fresh breath because no one wants to feel conscious during the day or added fluoride variant with natural whitening properties. Our toothpastes contain extra ingredients that aren’t found in conventional toothpaste for a holistic take on oral hygiene.


 Does Natural Toothpaste Prevent Cavities?

Now we know what you’re thinking, will natural toothpaste prevent tooth decay and cavities so you can avoid those costly and painful dental appointments? Along with fluoride a natural mineral that hardens tooth enamel to prevent cavities, there are many other natural ingredients that serve the same function if you prefer a fluoride-free toothpaste. Coconut oil helps to kill bad bacteria as well as reduce plaque and prevent gingivitis, xylitol prevents cavities by killing bacteria, green tea extract removes oral bacteria.
