Have you ever noticed the colored strip on the bottom of the toothpaste tube and wondered what that colored strip means??
Here’s what they mean:
Green: All Natural
Blue: Natural + Medicines
Red: Natural + Chemicals
Black: All Chemicals
Now you can make an informed decision before subjecting your teeth and gums to a tube of crap!
Here’s an example- on the back of the Aquafresh the color is : Blue
The ingredients are: Active Ingredients: Sodium Fluoride (0.15% w/v Fluoride Ion). Purpose: Anticavity. Inactive Ingredients: Water, Hydrated Silica, Sorbitol, Glycerin, PEG-8, Flavor, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Xanthan Gum, Titanium Dioxide, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Saccharin, Iron Oxide, Red 30

Sorry Krampus, I normally appreciate your posts and I hate to be the bearer of crappy news, but this one isn’t true. The colored squares are actually eye marks, which are marks used during the manufacturing process to tell the machine WHERE to cut so it doesn’t ruin the packaging.
The colors are just indicators for different types of sensors.
The best thing you can do to check the ingredients is just to read the label, besides the toothpaste comes In a Box anyway and you can’t exactly open it in the store to see the color on the tube.

Don’t beat yourself up Krampus, we’ve all read something on the net and shared it without confirming it. Thanks baconeater for clearing that up tho! You learn something new everyday!
