“The mucosal lining inside the mouth has about 90% absorption efficiency and we are exposing our health to many toxic chemicals (in the toothpaste) without us knowing it. Therefore, we want the ingredients in our toothpaste to be as natural as possible.” Red Seal’s resident Naturopathic expert Michelle Irving highlights during her speech.
Consumers are looking for healthier alternatives for themselves and for those around them. Especially as they become aware of potential irritants in the form of synthetic chemicals in mainstream products. Such irritants can include artificial colours and flavours, triclosan, parabens and microbeads.
Red Seal natural toothpastes replaces those chemicals with more natural herbal extracts and essential oils like eucalyptus, aniseed & peppermint. The combination of ingredients makes the toothpaste highly alkaline (pH >8), creating an environment discouraging the growth of bacteria.
One example of a unique natural ingredient originates from the Totara tree, a native tree of New Zealand. Totarol Oil is a naturally occurring plant extract that comes from recycled Totara. Totarol is a natural alternative for reducing bad bacteria in our mouth.
The natural toothpaste range also has a calcium carbonate base which naturally rebuilds, or remineralises, the teeth.
As a natural healthcare organisation, Red Seal has been combining scientific knowledge with more natural ingredients since 1923. In the case of toothpaste, Red Seal has been providing consumers with this more natural choice for 34 years.
Red Seal natural toothpaste comes from New Zealand, which is known for its clean green environment, beautiful water and fresh air. Providing additional reassurance to consumers is the country’s highly regarded food safety system.
“With 99% market share in the herbal toothpaste category in New Zealand, Red Seal has expanded from a strong base to being available in Australia, China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, across the Pacific and now in Malaysia” said Tony Robinson, International Director for Red Seal.
