Have you ever worried about the side-effects of your baby or toddler swallowing their chemical-laden toothpaste? Well, worry no more! Baby Organics Children’s Organic Toothpaste is 95% Certified Organic! It is a safe, non-toxic, non-abrasive, fluoride free and fragrance free alternative to traditional chemical-laden toothpastes that is just as effecting in cleansing and brightening teeth, soothing the gums and refreshing your children’s breath. And, it has a yummy sweet orange taste and aroma!
Here at Baby Organics we use aloe vera juice and extract (organic) in our children’s toothpaste to cleanse and soothe teeth and gums. According to the May/June 2009 issue of General Dentistry (the Academy of General Dentistry’s (AGD) clinical, peer-reviewed journal), aloe vera is effective in fighting cavities.
Aloe vera gel function is intended to eliminate pathogenic oral microflora – disease-causing bacteria – in the mouth. The ability of aloe vera gel to successfully perform that function has been a point of contention for some dental professionals. However, research presented in General Dentistry may alleviate that concern. The study compared the germ-fighting ability of an aloe vera gel to two commercially popular toothpastes and revealed that the aloe vera gel was just as effective, and in some cases more effective, than the commercial brands at controlling cavity-causing organisms.
Aloe latex contains anthraquinones, which are chemical compounds that are used in healing and arresting pain because they are anti-inflammatory in nature. But, because aloe vera gel tends to be less harsh on teeth, as it does not contain the abrasive elements typically found in commercial toothpaste, it is a great alternative for people with sensitive teeth or gums.
So not only can aloe vera juice aid in keeping the skin supple, it’s great for teeth too!Posted in Healthy Teeth | Leave a comment
Making headlines in the US in March 2009, was a report into the safety of baby bath products*. The report stated that children’s bath products were contaminated with Formaldehyde and 1.4-Dioxane and that these were not listed on the labels of some of the top selling products in the US. The report further stated that with marketing claims such as ‘gentle’ and ‘pure’ the manufacturers of these well known brands announced that their products met the regulations.
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, who released the report, says that the chemicals were not mentioned on the labels.
Current US law has no regulatory standards that limit formaldehyde, 1,4-dioxane or most other toxic chemicals in personal care products, manufacturers believe that they are meeting requirements.
Other countries have stricter standards. Formaldehyde is banned from personal care products in Japan and Sweden. The European Union bans 1,4-dioxane from personal care products and has recalled products found to contain the chemical.
Formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane are known to cause cancer in animals and are listed as probable human carcinogens by the Environmental Protection Agency. Formaldehyde can also trigger skin rashes in some children.
What does this mean for you and your baby?
|To be sure, only use natural, certified organic baby care products such as Baby Organics.
Our products are certified in by the Australian Certified Organic (ACO) and the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia (NASAA) and parents can be confident that they are using products that will not harm their children.
The best advice is to ‘do the label test’. In Australia, all ingredients must be listed on the label so parents can make an informed choice on suspect ingredients.
