Diets come and go almost too quickly for us to keep track of them, but with the rise of social media, websites such as Pinterest, and people like Martha Stewart, there are now fashions in many different areas of our lives that we could never have guessed about ten years ago. And just like these things that have become so popular over the years, so has homemade toothpaste, which is a rather unlikely fashion choice. Of course many of us are very careful about our health and appearance – but why homemade toothpaste in particular?
Well first things first: knowledge. With better understanding we can make better decisions, and over the last few years a huge amount of scientific research has been released that shows that some of the chemical ingredients that are used in shop brand toothpastes are actually not very good for us at all. In fact, there are many chemicals within the average toothpaste concoction that are actually really harmful for people. Some of them have been known in scientific trials to stunt growth and development, whereas others have been linked to an increase in cancer.
But believe it or not, it gets even worse. There are chemicals that are used in the vast majority of toothpastes are the same sort of chemicals that are used in anti-freezes and pesticides! Those are the last sort of chemicals that you would want to be putting into your body, and that is why homemade toothpastes have become more and more popular. When you make your own toothpaste, you will know exactly what ingredients you have used, and that means that absolutely everything will be safe and healthy for you to use. There really is nothing quite like it – so why don’t you think about creating your very own homemade toothpaste?
