Toothpaste Poison Warnings

Warning labels like this are put on products for a reason. It is because they do contain poisonous ingredients that can cause harm or even cause death when too much is used. Little good that will do because the lining of the mouth has a 90% absorption efficiency.

Most toothpaste available today, with harmful chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate, PEG-12, artificial sweeteners, and fluoride. These poisonous chemicals can have long-term, negative effects as they are absorbed into the blood slowly over time.

Sample warning label on the box of a popular brand of  toothpaste… 

Toothpaste Warning Label

Typical toothpaste warning label:

“Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional help or contact a poison control center immediately.”

Typical mouthwash caution label:

“In case of accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a poison control center immediately. Do not use in children under six years of age. Supervise children over six.”

Toothpaste-Warning-Label-Toxic

Read what Dr. Joseph Mercola has to say about fluoride.

Why would you need to call the Poison Control Center?

Quite simply, it doesn’t take much toothpaste to injure or even kill a child or adult who swallows toothpaste. The two ingredients responsible for most swallowing emergencies are: Sodium lauryl sulfate and Fluoride.

You and your children can swallow Thieves toothpaste and mouthwash daily and never once worry about poisoning yourselves – there is no warning label on these edible dental care products!

Toothpaste Should Shield Against Oral Germs

Researchers at the Tokyo Dental College noted that more than 300 different species of bacteria are found in populations of several hundred billion in the human oral cavity (read: ‘Dirtiest’ place on the body). They estimated that this number reaches a thousand billion when the mouth is not sufficiently cleaned.

Most toothpaste available today, with harmful chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate (which is nothing more than an ingredient that makes ‘foam’ – foamy suds, whether in toothpaste, soaps or detergents foam and suds do NOT clean anything), PEG-12, fluoride, artificial sweeteners, will have long-term, negative effects as they are absorbed into the blood (our skin absorbs everything we apply to it, our mouth does too but even more-so than our skin).

The May 2000 Surgeon General’s Report on oral health emphasized the connection between oral and systemic health[1] In addition, over a hundred studies have documented a correlation between dental and periodontal infections and other acute and chronic infections in the body. [2,3,4,5]

W.J. Loesche, PhD, at the University of Michigan’s Microbiology and Immunology School of Medicine, stated:

“Maintaining good oral health should receive the highest priority for a healthy life”[6]

Japanese researchers agree, saying:

“Oral health care, primarily mouth cleaning, is important not only for oral disease but also a healthy life.”

Ingredients in Thieves Ultra ‘edible’ Toothpaste

  • The inclusion of therapeutic thyme†, wintergreen†, peppermint† and Eucalyptus globulous† essential oils are in a concentration of 2.5%, these active ingredients kill bacteria that cause gingivitis, tooth decay, and bad breath.Toothpaste-Zinc-Particle-Sizes
  • Therapeutic clove† essential oil is also an ingredient, which has been used in dental hygiene during the early history of dentistry.
  • The essential oils in the Thieves Ultra Toothpaste are encapsulated in a patented liposome complex that attaches to the mucous membranes of the mouth, creating a time-release effect for more sustained breath freshening and antiseptic action.
  • Xylitol is a special five-carbon sugar alcohol that prevents the growth of bacteria such as Streptoccocus mutans (MRSA) that are responsible for tooth decay. Ingestion of xylitol has been shown to build bone strength and density in numerous well-controlled studies.
  • Papain is an anti-stain enzyme derived from papayas, that keeps teeth white.
  • A special, non-abrasive, more-than-850-mesh calcium (the smallest size particle size that exists in carbonate) has a unique geometric configuration that replaces sharp edges with rounded contours. Most toothpaste has 200-mesh or greater size particles, which strip away tooth enamel to soft underlying dentin. We notice then when we ‘feel’ the grittiness of store-bought toothpaste itself.
  • Nano-particle zinc oxide enhances the essential oils’ effects.
  • Zinc citrate stops tartar build-up around teeth.

  1. It is nice to see such a complete post explaining the pros and cons of variouis toothpastes and good info on dental care in general. I’ve been reasearching this information myself for quite some time, and learned some new things here.

    If you’re researching good oral hygiene techniques and products, this post is pretty much dead on. Very good stuff.

  2. Great products! I thought someone said Young Living essential oils could be used for loosening a molar before extraction. Has anyone ever heard of this?

    I’ve got an impacted wisdom tooth right next to an infected root canal and I want to loosen both of them before dental surgery. Do you know how to use Thieves Oil to loosen a tooth? Thanks so much for your help.

    • Hi Selah,

      Sorry to hear about your tooth. I have never known anyone to use essential oils to ‘loosen’ a tooth. We are mostly concerned about keeping them and keeping them healthy. Sorry but I cannot help you on that one.

  3. I’m a bit concerned about the use of wintergreen essential oil. My understanding is that the oil is poisonous and mostly used in small quantities topically for arthritis/joint pain.

    • Hi Paul,

      You should be concerned. Wintergreen does contain a compound called Methyl salicylate, this is the compound that is considered poisonous in large amounts when it is isolated and put into products, such as a popular conventional ointment bought in stores. There has also been a lot of press regarding Methyl salicylate found in that popular ointment when people have used a lot of it for easing muscle and joint discomforts.

      I do not buy conventional products that contain Methyl salicylate or Wintergreeen essential oil because I know what’s done in the industry – they DO use an extremely low quality Wintergreen to keep their prices down and profits high. And they DO use isolated Methyl salicylate. I am concerned too, that’s why I never buy stuff in any store.

      Companies believe that the consumer wants cheaply priced goods, even cheaply priced all-natural goods. I contest that if the consumer knew the truth they would NOT have an issue paying a higher price for a product that will not poison them.

      This is precisely why I love, use and highly recommend Young Living essential oils and products (found at my website http://theveryessence.com/buy.php ) – I know they care just as much about our health as they do in making money.

      What also comes into play regarding Methyl salicylate that many don’t know about, is that when an active ingredient is extracted out of any plant in nature you are not obtaining any of the other compounds found in that plant which can help to prevent poisoning.

      Now, I am NOT saying Methyl salicylate is not poisonous… I am saying that Methyl salicylate as an isolated ingredient in products has the very real potential of causing great harm. This is where the real value of knowing how things work benefits the consumer greatly.

      Methyl salicylate is NOT in any of the Thieves toothpastes or Mouthwash. ~ Evelyn
