Young Living’s toothpastes, unlike regular toothpastes from renowned brands, do not use microplastic as an abrasive?
Many toothpastes are so rough because of microscopic balls of plastic. After use, that plastic washes away through the sink drain. Water treatment plants cannot remove this microplastic from the water. So the plastic goes straight to the sea, where it is eaten by small creatures like algae and krill.
But it is not only in toothpaste: it is also in shampoo, shower cream and even scrub cream.
There is a very simple test, with which you can see for yourself the plastic in your care product. You dilute some toothpaste, shampoo or cream with water and pour it through a coffee filter. It is enlightening to see!
Some brands use such tiny beads that they don’t get left behind in a coffee filter either. Of course, the microplastic is mentioned on the packaging: polyethylene or polyethene. And if the plastic particles are so small that they do not remain in a filter, who is to say that they will not remain in the tissue in your mouth???
Young Living has chosen a product that occurs in nature and can do exactly the same, but in an environmentally friendly way. Calcium carbonate is used in toothpaste as an abrasive to scrub teeth and is naturally derived from limestone.

The CBD products from Young Living are distilled through ethyl alcohol? However, the hardest part comes after that… CBD products from Young Living are only made with an ISOLATE of CBD, so after distillation, all other substances such as THC must be filtered out, and essential oil must be added again. Do you want to know more about CBD, how to use it or do you find the science behind it interesting? Thursday 11 March Ed will be hosting a Zoom! Check out our group on Facebook or send us an email for the link. You can ask your questions during the Zoom, but if you can’t wait, you can also mail directly to Ed@oiledbynature.nl
