More than 50 percent of people have sensitive teeth or gums. Surprisingly, some brands of toothpastes for sensitive teeth contain foaming agents like sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) - a proven irritant.
Our certified organic toothpastes for sensitive teeth and gums contain only the gentlest natural ingredients with soothing antibacterial action.
Natural toothpaste for sensitive teeth

SLS and gum sensitivity
The mouth is a sensitive area of the body and it is only natural that what can irritate our skins can also irritate our mouths.
A known skin irritant, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) has also been shown to cause damage to oral tissues and reaction to SLS may cause gingivitis, receding gums and canker sores, a type of mouth ulcer.
We do not use SLS in any of our natural toothpastes.
