Sal free Dental products, Toothpaste, Toms of Maine, Colgate

Hey folks! There has been enough confusion on this topic to warrant a post on it 🙂 (Updated April 20 2016)

This is kinda like my post on the Butters like cocoa and shea regarding Salicylates.

Basically, I have chosen to go the ultra-sensitive route when it comes to salicylates, as it’s just not worth the possibility of blocking on them. I am part of a group of admins to guaifenesin protocol support groups from around the world, and the consensus is that there are enough people who have blocked on Toms of Maine (bought out by Colgate) that we suggest our members stay away from them. Colgate Kids toothpastes have also blocked enough people that we steer clear of it too.

A friend emailed Toms of Maine toothpastes about if there are salicylates in any or all of their toothpastes, after a couple emails back and forth to clarify, this was their response, “Because salicylates are a component of any natural ingredient, and because all of our ingredients are natural, we do not have a salicylate free toothpaste.” This was from Tom’s in Dec 2015.

Cleure and Andrea Rose toothpaste and mouthwash (Click the names for links to their websites.) are the toothpastes that are guaranteed sal-free always.

Here’s the rest of the sal-free options we know of:

2. Closys is the only exception for mouthwash, as the mint flavor is in a separate bottle, please do not use the mint flavor! lol 🙂

It is NOT worth blocking, or even partially blocking your progress! Here’s another post on making your own toothpaste and mouthwash if you want to go that route. I’ve done it myself and it’s actually a really nice toothpaste, made my mouth feel so clean and refreshed!

*Please note that salicylate sensitivity plays a role in this! My website and support group are VERY sal careful, more so than the guaigroup and the book even! We have found certain things to block the salicylate sensitive people (such as using Vinegars topicallyStevia,  butters, gums, certain toothpastes) and want to be extremely cautious with what we say is safe or not. Anybody who is being mapped by Dr St Amand or Dr Congdon is a different story, as they have someone who can help them to know when they are blocking. The rest of us who don’t have mappers have to be SUPER diligent so that we don’t block, since we have nobody to catch it if we do!**

    The guai group in CA said that it was OK to use “toms of maine” Silly Strawberry for kids toothpaste. Now im confused. Been using it for over 3 yrs or so

    • Christine says:

      Are you clearing? making progress with your symptoms? Because some people are more sensitive to sals than others and can not use Tom’s toothpastes… If you are worried, just go with the ones I listed in my post and you’ll be sure to be sal-free 🙂

    Hi, Just a quick note to mention that AlFreeze toothpaste contains Methylparaben. I nearly checked out until I read the ingredients. Pity because they shipped internationally and for a reasonable price.
    Calcium Carbonate
    Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
    Cellulose Gum
    Sodium Magnesium Silicate

    I ran across this sal free toothpaste today looking for something with antimicrobial properties after my new holistic dentist showed me a slide of the unwelcome bacteria from my 4mm gum pockets. I may try it or the non salicylate option he had was aluminum free baking soda and colloidal silver. Also, I’ve been using this device for many years and like to tell people about it
