Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Bangsar South for the launching event of Red Seal Natural Toothpaste, a highly trusted New Zealand brand for 34 years that allows us to have a more natural and safer brushing experience.
When there is a natural alternative to everything, why not? Nowadays, consumers are becoming more aware of potential irritants in the form of synthetic chemicals in mainstream products. Such irritants can include artificial colours and flavours, triclosan, parabens and microbeads.
“The mucosal lining inside the mouth has about 90% absorption efficiency and we are exposing our health to many toxic chemicals from the toothpaste without us knowing it. Therefore, we want the ingredients in our toothpaste to be as natural as possible.” highlighted Red Seal’s resident Naturopathic expert Michelle Irving during her speech.
Red Seal Natural Toothpaste replaces those chemicals with more natural herbal extracts and essential oils like eucalyptus, aniseed and peppermint. The combination of these ingredients makes the toothpaste highly alkaline (pH >8), creating an environment discouraging the growth of bacteria.
One example of a unique natural ingredient originates from the Totara tree, a native tree of New Zealand. A natural alternative for reducing bad bacteria in our mouth, Totarol Oil is a naturally occurring plant extract that comes from recycled Totara. The natural toothpaste range also has a calcium carbonate base which naturally rebuilds or remineralises the teeth.
There are a total of 5 varieties available, with the signature being their Natural Toothpaste. It is a combination of 12 herbs and extracts to help remineralization and killing off the bacteria to prevent tooth decay and plaque formation. It has a mild, minty pleasant taste, and is suitable for the whole family.
For individuals who are ulcer-prone, there is a special formula, Natural SLS Free Toothpaste. It is free-of-Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS). It provides gentle protection on the mucosa layer. It is also suitable for people who wear teeth braces.
The Baking Soda Toothpaste is used to remove stains naturally, suitable for coffee or tea drinkers. It has also been used as a natural teeth whitener.
The Propolis Toothpaste contains 100% New Zealand bee propolis with antiseptic and antibacterial properties, ideal for sufferers of gingivitis and sensitive gums.
Last but not least, the natural Kids Toothpaste for the little ones. The taste is enhanced with real banana and peach flavours! The great taste encourages the kids to brush their teeth without having to worry about the risk of swallowing harmful chemicals.
“We are delighted to be able to bring Red Seal Natural Toothpaste from New Zealand to Malaysian shores. It is in-line with our belief to bring in more natural, healthier and safer options for Malaysians” says Joyce Chung, Product Manager of Red Seal brand in Malaysia.
If you are serious about the health of you and your family, you should consider Red Seal Natural Toothpaste, a more natural choice.
