Take Your Toothpaste With A Grain Of Salt

Sometimes, the products that sound the strangest can be the most effective, in their own unusual ways. Take Weleda's Salt Toothpaste, for example. Immediately, you think, "Um, why would I want salt in my toothpaste?" But, we assure you, there are some very good reasons!

Sodium chloride (salt) and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) are an outstanding combination when it comes to neutralizing plaque acids and stopping additional plaque from building. But what makes this formula really remarkable is its ability to increase saliva production-that means cleaner gums and teeth, as well as better breath.

Salt Toothpaste contains a number of other dentally unconventional extracts that you might expect to see in natural skincare products, such as myrrh, horse chestnut, rhatany, jojoba oil, and blackthorn juice, which contribute to keeping gums healthy.

And no, brushing with Salt Toothpaste doesn't leave you feeling like you just swigged seawater-natural peppermint keeps this unusual blend feeling familiar and fresh.
