Leave Your Mouth Feeling Fresh, Clean and Healthy, Without Dangerous Chemicals

Today’s most popular toothpastes, including many ‘natural’ brands, contain a brew of inadequately tested, potentially hazardous ingredients. Even if you’re careful to avoid swallowing, potential carcinogens, irritants and hormone mimickers can slip into your bloodstream every time you brush. Here’s how to avoid those risks.

  • Ola Botanicals® Oral Care brings you top-quality toothpaste and dental floss that keep your mouth fresh, clean and healthy, without exposure to potentially toxic chemicals.
  • Ola Botanicals® Tulsi-Mint Toothpaste is a refreshing, fluoride-free blend of natural botanicals and mild cleansing agents that gently clean your teeth, leaving them smooth and clean without any risk of exposure to potentially hazardous ingredients.
  • Fluoride-free, Ola Botanicals® Peppermint Dental Floss is made with clean, hygienic nylon, vegan waxed using rice bran and flavored with essential oils, including peppermint, orange and fennel, to give your teeth a refreshing clean.

Our mission with Ola Botanicals® Oral Care is to bring you truly natural and organic oral care products that are as kind to the planet as they are to your teeth and gums.

We’ve gathered some of the most celebrated botanicals from around the world to make oral care products that are free of soy, artificial fragrances, dyes, parabens and phthalates. You won’t find strange ingredient names you can’t pronounce, and we use organically grown ingredients whenever possible to help provide a pure, effective clean for your mouth.

Everyone knows that dentists recommend brushing and flossing every day to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. But not everyone knows that many popular toothpaste and floss products contain questionable ingredients that are potentially toxic.

You shouldn’t have to risk exposure to a brew of harmful chemicals just to get your teeth and gums clean and healthy. That’s why we created Ola Botanicals® Oral Care.

Formulated with gentle natural cleansers like calcium carbonate and a small amount of baking soda, the fresh, invigorating flavor of our Ola Botanicals® Tulsi-Mint Toothpaste comes from organic botanicals known for promoting oral health.

Many popular brands of floss are coated with synthetic petroleum. Or even worse… Teflon. We wanted to stay far away from these potentially toxic coatings.

So, we coated our Ola Botanicals® Dental Floss with natural, plant-based wax that gives it a smooth gliding finish… and is 100% non-toxic.

Ola Botanicals® brings you natural and organic choices you can feel good about. For yourself and for the planet.

Why Natural and Organic Ingredients?

Just as you choose natural and organic foods to avoid toxins and potentially harmful chemicals in your diet, you do the same thing for your teeth and gums when you choose natural and organic oral care.

Oral care products like toothpaste and dental floss can be loaded with petrochemicals and highly processed ingredients that are dangerous to swallow. But here’s the thing about oral care products… you don’t even have to swallow them to be exposed to potential risks.

The inside of your mouth is lined with mucosa, a moist, highly permeable lining that easily absorbs whatever comes in contact with it. Ingredients in oral care products, healthy or harmful, flow right through your mucosa into your bloodstream and organs, where they can eventually accumulate.

By choosing natural and organic oral care, you help protect yourself from this source of daily exposure to toxic chemicals and reduce the toxic load on your body.

Made from natural, non-toxic and plant-based ingredients, Ola Botanicals® Tulsi-Mint Toothpaste and Ola Botanicals® Dental Floss give you a safe way to clean your mouth without exposing yourself to the risks of potentially harmful chemicals.

Safe and Effective? The Truth About Sodium Fluoride

There are a lot of questionable ingredients that go into popular toothpastes, and we’ll go through that list in just a moment. But first, you need to know the truth about the one you hear the most about…fluoride.

If your dentist practices conventional dentistry, she has likely advised you to use toothpaste that contains sodium fluoride. In fact, in order to be labeled with the “ADA Accepted” seal, the American Dental Association (ADA) requires it to contain fluoride.

But do you really need it? And furthermore, how safe is it?

According to the ADA, fluoride makes tooth enamel stronger and more resistant to decay. They say it may reverse early signs of tooth decay and help re-mineralize weakened tooth enamel.

However, accumulating research challenges the ADA’s long held assertion.

For example, a study conducted in 2010 found that the supposedly beneficial layer that forms on your teeth from fluoride is only six nanometers thick. To appreciate how thin this is… you'd need 10,000 of these layers to equal the width of a single strand of hair!

And here’s the real kicker – simple chewing disrupts this so-called protective layer.

This raises the question of whether the fluoride in toothpaste really does much – or anything – to safeguard your tooth enamel.

But that important question is just one of the issues on the table…

Toothbrush and toothpaste

What Many People Don’t Realize About Fluoride

Here’s the crazy thing about fluoride… It has never been approved by the FDA as either safe or effective, and the FDA actually designates it as an “unapproved new drug.”

Not only that, but products containing fluoride actually have to carry a poison warning on the label. Just check out your tube of fluoridated toothpaste and you can see it right there.

Over time, fluoride can accumulate in your tissues and bones, creating a number of serious health problems… especially for children.

When kids ingest or absorb significant amounts of fluoride from toothpaste or fluoridated water during their first eight years of life, it can lead to mottling of the teeth, or dental fluorosis. Ironically, this overexposure to fluoride leaves their teeth marked by unsightly yellow or brown stains and pits formed in the tooth enamel.

Children naturally swallow more toothpaste than adults do, putting them at a higher risk of fluoride toxicity right at the time when it can do the most harm.

But mottled and pitted teeth aren’t the only problems that can result from too much fluoride. Fluoride can also potentially…

  • Accumulate in your bones and affect your flexibility, joint comfort and bone strength.
  • Interfere with your thyroid function.
  • Affect your brain function, and possibly damage the developing brain.

Any potential benefits from fluoride in toothpaste are outweighed by its more serious potential health-damaging effects, especially since it can accumulate in tissues and bones over time.

Fluoride is an essential trace mineral, meaning it’s required by your body in very small amounts to be healthy. But the thing about trace minerals is, getting too much can cause health problems. Most of us get all the fluoride we need from food, so adding it to drinking water and toothpaste simply introduces unnecessary risks.

Unfortunately, fluoride isn’t the only ingredient in toothpaste that exposes you to toxic risks. It’s just the first one on a long list. Let’s take look at this toxic cocktail called toothpaste…

The ‘Dirty Dozen’ Oral Care Ingredients to Avoid

Did you know that one in eight of the more than 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, hormone disruptors and reproductive toxins?

People have been using toothpaste of one kind or another for thousands of years. The earliest versions contained ingredients like ox hooves, eggshells and crushed bones.

Today, ingredients sound much cleaner and more advanced. But the reality is that modern dental care products are often loaded with chemicals that can expose you to a variety of major health risks. On top of that, they can cause side effects like dry mouth, canker sores, redness and swelling around the mouth.

And if you accidentally swallow some, you could end up feeling queasy…or worse, taking a trip to the emergency room.

In a 2016 report, Behind the Dazzling Smile, the Cornucopia Institute identifies dozens of potential toxic ingredients in toothpaste.

Here are a few of the many potentially harmful ingredients being used in today’s popular mouthwash products:

These are just some of the potentially hazardous ingredients you can find in popular toothpastes. Another major one is artificial color

Red Is for Roses – Not for Toothpaste

Many top-selling toothpastes – especially those marketed to children – contain dyes. Some parents think their kids are more likely to brush if the toothpaste looks fun.

But when it comes to your health, the dyes used in toothpaste are anything but fun:

  • They’re mostly petrochemicals, made from petroleum.
  • They can contain as much as 10% impurities, either from the chemicals used or from byproducts formed during the manufacturing process.
  • They can contain heavy metals, like lead, mercury and arsenic.
  • The three most widely used dyes, Red 40, Yellow 5, Yellow 6 and Yellow 20 are contaminated with known carcinogens.
  • D&C dyes are banned from use in food but are allowed in toothpaste.

Sometimes, you’ll see a dye with “lake” in the name. Lake dyes are petrochemical mixtures formed by reacting a dye with a metal salt.

That makes them a source of heavy metals like aluminum, chromium and barium. Aluminum is potentially damaging to your brain, and excess exposure to chromium and barium can contribute to other health problems.

These artificial colorings have also been shown to contribute to hyperactive behavior and ADHD in children.

Here’s something else that’s sure to raise your ire – manufacturers who sell toothpaste with synthetic dyes in the U.S. sell dye-free versions of these same products in Europe. If they’re not safe in Europe, why are they marketed as safe here?

Unfortunately, here in the U.S., you must look out for these risks yourself.

How to Navigate Labels – “Organic” and “Natural”

Unfortunately, you can't depend on the words "organic" and "natural" on oral care product labels to protect you from potentially toxic chemicals.

According to a report by the Organic Consumers Association, the word "organic" is not regulated with personal care products as it is with food products.

Some personal care products with “organic” on the label may contain only a single-digit percentage of organic ingredients. Other products may use synthetic ingredients, or ingredients that are derived from natural sources that are highly processed, causing them to contain potentially toxic compounds.

Protecting yourself can require sharp detective work.

Learn to read labels carefully so you can steer clear of hazardous substances in your bath and shower products, and instead look for products with natural and organic, unprocessed botanical ingredients.

Refreshing Flavor and Dental Health Benefits From a Prized Ayurvedic Herb

Instead of using potentially dangerous ingredients, Ola Botanicals® chooses natural and plant-based ingredients with a proven history of effectiveness for cleaning teeth and gums and enhancing whiteness.

Ola Botanicals® Tulsi-Mint Toothpaste

Ola Botanicals® Tulsi-Mint Toothpaste features gentle natural cleaners such as calcium carbonate and baking soda. It’s sweetened with stevia leaf and licorice extracts, both of which are intensely sweet with none of the dangers posed by artificial sweeteners.

It contains aloe and vegetable glycerin to help soothe and moisturize your mouth, while tea tree oil and xylitol help keep your teeth clean.

But one of the truly unique ingredients in this toothpaste is Tulsi, or Holy Basil.

Revered in India for over 5000 years, tulsi has been valued as a principal herb in the ancient holistic health system known as Ayurveda.

The plant is traditionally given a special place in each home, with special honor shown to it by family members. Holy basil plays an essential role in worship ceremonies. People believe it protects them from evil and brings good luck.

Tulsi is an exceptional mouth freshener and cleanser that helps support a beneficial balance of healthy mouth flora. It also helps soothe your mouth.

To supercharge your oral care routine, try adding Ola Botanicals® Oil Pulling Rinse, which is designed to make “oil pulling” easy and convenient. Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that promotes healthy mouth flora. It pairs well with our Organic Peppermint Essential Oil, which adds a refreshing taste.

Clean, Refreshing Dental Floss – No Toxic Chemicals or Coatings

Ola Botanicals® Peppermint Dental Floss

Ola Botanicals® Peppermint Dental Floss is a truly unique dental floss. Free of fluoride, it’s made with clean, hygienic nylon that’s waxed using rice bran – totally vegan friendly.

Since it was first sold in 1882, dental floss has undergone many evolutions. The first commercial floss consisted of a simple, unwaxed silk thread.

After nylon was invented in the late 1930s, it became the main material for making floss. Shortly after this shift, wax was added to help it slide more easily between teeth. Then in the 1950s, dental “tape” was developed out of nylon. And then came flavors.

Today, you can find an amazing variety of dental flosses on the market. But did you know that the wax used on dental floss is usually petroleum-based?

Or worse yet, some are coated with Teflon.

Petroleum extraction burdens the earth, and Teflon has been cited as being potentially carcinogenic and possibly contributing to higher blood cholesterol levels, decreased childbirth weight and changes in liver enzymes.

As responsible stewards of the planet, we wanted to offer a dental floss without any of these risks. So, we use essential oils like peppermint, orange and fennel to give our Ola Botanicals® Peppermint Dental Floss a flavor your whole family will love.

It leaves your mouth feeling clean and fresh while also being good for the earth.

  8. 8. What do you use to flavor Ola Botanicals® Dental Floss?
