View Full Version : Question about using Dr. Bronner's as toothpaste
05-19-2008, 11:11 PM
Okay. So I recently discovered that standard toothpaste is not good for your teeth so I started using my Doctor Bronner's liquid soap on my teeth instead of toothpaste. One of the harmful ingredients in standard toothpaste that you're supposed to stay away from is glycerin (it leaves a coating on your teeth and prevents them from remineralizing or something). But I took a look at the bottle and one of the first ingredients in Dr. Bronner's liquid soap is Organic Olive Oils (w/retained glycerin). Is this really bad?? Is this glycerin somehow better than the glycerin in regular toothpaste or should I not use this on my teeth at all and buy Toothsoap? Your advice is appreciated. TIA.

I started using Dr Bronner's as toothpaste once I read the ingredients and discovered they were essentially the same as in ToothSoap--dunno about the glycerin, though

Both products contain glycerin, but they're in small amounts. The products to avoid are the ones that contain large amounts of glycerin like most commercial toothpastes.

Thank you!! Once I get stuck on an issue, I can't let it go until I get more information. I go a little crazy for a day or two :eek: :eek:
