Banned Ingredient

The FDA just banned an active Ingredient in this toothpaste!

This ingredient is named triclosan.  It is in antibacterial hand soaps and in Colgate Total toothpaste. It is known to cause disruptions in the hormone levels and thyroid function.

The makers of this brand of toothpaste convinced the FDA that it had valid anti-dental disease agents and properties. The maker has said they have the appropriate testing and results to say that it actually works for these dental/gum diseases. So the FDA gave it a pass. Why take the chance?  Use something else or use one of the many natural products out there.
