Researchers also believe it is potentially harmful to skin and hair because it cleans by corrosion.

To this. Tom's of Maine toothpaste. I love it. This is SLS free as well and fluoride free. I don't like to use fluoride myself and make sure the girls don't get it when they go to the dentist. I did some research on fluoride and realized that it's something our teeth just don't need. In fact, over time it makes your teeth soft and brittle. I will go more into fluoride in another blog later. You have to make sure to read the label closely on Tom's of Maine toothpaste because they do have some that have SLS in them. Cost is $4.99
I went to Trader Joe's today and found an all natural toothpaste with no SLS or fluoride for $1.99. I haven't tried it yet, but I couldn't beat the price so I bought it. I will let you know how I like it. Happy brushing.
