Yeah i've heard fluoride is toxic. Could be causing us allergic reactions on our face, when we wash. The chlorine could actually be the culprit, Chlorine's even worse, especially for drinking, but I won't sidetrack.

The thing is, I read that it has nothing to do with toothpaste getting on your actual skin.. just a reaction your skin gets when you brush or something (strange, I know).. in fact, I read on a few sites that it can even spread maybe to your cheeks.. but the problem is mainly in the chin area and around the mouth.

I just kind of browsed around on google lol.. in one of my beauty books I have here, it mentioned it too.

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
