Mama’s Teeth Know Sea Salt Best

Mr Neo Luxe Review Weleda Salth ToothpasteGrowing up, I remember my mum telling me a story about when she was a child; her mum would make her brush her teeth with sea salt. ‘Sea Salt? Why not just use toothpaste?’ I responded. A few weeks ago I was online and discovered Weleda’s Salt Toothpaste. My mother’s story flashed back, and I decided to do some research on the benefits of sea salt and oral care. Here’s what I uncovered:

  • Sea Salt contains calcium, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus, sodium, nickel and iron – just a few trace elements and minerals. These nutrients strengthen gums, protect against tartar and bad breath, and even whiten teeth over time.
  • Sea Salt contains Iodine which has antibacterial properties which neutralise acids in the mouth
  • Sea Salt makes you salivate which creates an antibacterial barrier which protects enamel.

Weleda’s Salt Toothpaste is formulated with natural sodium bicarbonate to help neutralise plaque acids and prevent plaque build up. Sea salt has been added into this product to increase saliva flow to keep gums clean, healthy and strong. Myrrh and Krameria have also been added which assist in keeping the gums and oral cavity healthy. With some many benefits, I thought I’d give it a try.

The very first thing you’ll notice is this paste isn’t white; it’s brown! Don’t be put off; it tastes exactly like regular toothpaste as it’s flavoured with natural essential oils including peppermint to provide a long lasting freshness. This unique toothpaste won’t give you a mouthful of foam either. As you brush, you’ll get a taste of salt and notice the paste contains granules. These abrasive particles help prevent tooth discoloration and reduce the build up of tartar. Once I finished brushing, I noticed my teeth appeared brighter, and my mouth had a pleasant minty aftertaste. This product offers a different brushing experience, but the outcome is the same if not better. Your teeth feel clean, and our mouth refreshed, the only difference is its completely natural. Now for all the sceptics out there, all Weleda toothpaste’s have been developed with dentists to maintain the health balance of teeth and gums. A great product with so many benefits for teeth and gums – I’m sold!
