Is coconut oil beneficial in toothpaste?
We find ourselves in an era where products tend to be as natural as possible, offering a large part of the population what they demand so much: reliable products that do not harm their organism. The case of toothpastes cannot be excluded, having an important role in the health of our teeth. With this in mind, it is not strange to think that coconut oil is one of the preferred ingredients for the making of these toothpastes.
Coconut oil: Not only for the skin.
The oil extracted from coconut not only has a use in dermatology, being used as an essential oil for the skin, or in gastronomy, used for its high oxidation point during cooking, but it also has a place in the tooth care industry.
This natural ingredient, besides having a great taste, offers multiple benefits for oral health during brushing. First of all, it is capable of leaving a good and fresh breath, neutralizing strong smells such as garlic. In addition, it helps clean teeth better and leaves them whiter for longer. And as if this were not enough, it is an ingredient that, if swallowed, does not cause any harm.
Studies back coconut oil's properties up.
All of the above has been supported by several scientific studies, which indicate that certain substances found in coconut oil have antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties.
This would indicate the reducing effect of coconut oil on pathogenic microorganisms that promote plaque and periodontal problems. There are also those who point out that this oil can take care of tannins, those components that make our teeth become yellowish.
With this in mind, and considering its low price, its natural and vegan origin, as well as its safety, coconut oil becomes an almost mandatory ingredient to use for dental health maintenance, especially for those who want to use toothpastes without additives and artificial and possibly harmful elements.
Tooth Be Told uses Coconut Oil as an active ingredient our Mint Charcoal Toothpaste.
