Sodium Lauryl Sulphate

posted in: News 0

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is an inexpensive and very effective foaming agent. Tests in the US indicate that it is safe for consumer use ( Bondi et al. 2015). The Australian government’s Department of Health and Ageing and its National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) have also determined SLS does not react with DNA. 

However if you would like to use a toothpaste that does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate we have Oxyfresh Lemon-Mint Toothpaste (also fluoride free).

The other Oxyfresh toothpaste we stock does contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and fluoride with the addition of Zinc for infection control.

All Oxyfresh pastes, gels and rinses as well as our EPIC mouth rinse, gum and toothpaste contain Xylitol. Xylitol is a natural sugar derived from Birch Bark, which given its chemical structure is harder for bacteria to metabolize and thrive on, leading to a decrease in decay and gum/jawbone disease.
