Pureen Maternity Toothpaste (Fluoride Free)
Why No Fluoride
Studies have found Fluoride accumulates in fetal brains, causing damage to cells and neurotransmitters.1,2

Why No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Dry mouth is common in pregnant women. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a detergent and foam booster found in normal toothpaste. It can cause mouth ulcers, as it dries out the protective mucus lining in the mouth.
Why No Saccharin
Saccharin is synthesized from coal tar.
During pregnancy, many women have the desire to snack on carbohydrate containing food. The bacteria will convert the starch/sugar that remains in the mouth/plaque to acids. In women with severe morning sickness, nausea and vomiting leaves stomach acids in the mouth. Acids can damage the surface of the teeth and promote tooth decay.
Pureen Maternity Toothpaste (Fluoride Free) prevents tooth decay with:
Xylitol is a natural sweetener. It is found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables, including berries, corn husks and mushrooms. It does not cause tooth decay
Triple Calcium & Phosphate
Calcium and Phosphate ions are essential for the REMINERALIZATION of tooth enamel to protect against tooth decay. They play an important role in the maintenance of strong teeth.
Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate
Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate inhibits the growth of bad breath-causing bacteria in human saliva.
Brush at least twice a day, after meal. Recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
