Whitening toothpaste and acne

16 posts in this topic

I read that whitening flouride toothpaste can be a cause of chin acne/acne around the mouth and such. Has anyone noticed that by switching to a non fluoride, your acne has improved? Im going to try that this week I think...

I wouldnt have a clue. I never ever let the toothpaste drip onto my chin. Probably the best would be to not to let the toothpaste in that area :D

Loads of places add flurine to the drinking water, its acctually to help with your dental care! helps to kill germs etc. The amounts of flurine in drinking water are very very small, which is good because it is very toxic to every living thing.

aerine - I would acctually be very surprised if it was the chlorine that helps your face, It most likely to be the urine in the water, urine is very very sterile and can be used for cleaning. Sound nasty

I am here to save the day! You are looking at the Acne.org Fluoride/Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Acne Correlation expert! I did some in depth studying on the subject, and decided to switch to a fluoride free toothpaste. I would not recommend toms of maine, because it's hard to find one that doesn't have fluoride in it, and they are all made with SLS. However, the toothpaste I use is J/A/S/O/N Organics PowerSmile toothpaste. It's fluoride free, and SLS free, and contains organic whiteners to gently and naturally whiten your teeth. It's flavored with peppermint oil, which makes it a delcious minty to the max experience every time I use it. It's not expensive either, and one tube will last a long time. I would recommend it to everyone, and it's even available on drugstore.com for a good price, and it's got some great reviews. I'd like everyone to give it a try, because I used to have horrible chin breakouts until I switched to a fluoride free toothpaste. I dont think it's a matter of it dripping onto your chin, it's more of an issue of leeching into your gums and inflaming your chin area, I think. I also noticed I stopped breaking out on my forehead once I switched to an SLS free shampoo. So, what are you waiting for? What do you have to loose? Give it a try :)

PS: If anyone has any questions regarding fluoride, flouride free toothpastes, SLS, or SLS free products, please feel free to PM me, I'm always open to give advice.
