We have been using the most popular brands of toothpaste from ever since we can imagine. Colgate, Pepsodent, Oral-B, Crest are to name a few. Personally, I tend to buy and try each and every new product that these brands launch and bring to the market.
I choose my toothpaste on the basis of its function or specialty, which can vary from deep cleansing, extra-whitening, fighting against tartar/plaque, preventing foul breath, treating sensitivity and many more. Recent times have been providing us with new flavours and new specialities which are highlighted on the front face of the cover but what about a few things that have a masked meaning behind them? It was very recently that I came to know about the hidden reality behind the color of the toothpaste packing's bottom. Yes, I am talking about the various colored strips that can be found at the foot of every toothpaste.
This color says that your toothpaste contains the combination of natural and medicinal ingredients.
The following four colors are the most common ones which you will encounter.
While Black colored stripes show that your toothpaste contains 100% chemicals, the Green colored stripe shows that your toothpaste is 100% natural.
A Red stripe is the proof of your toothpaste containing a mixture of natural and chemical ingredients.
Keep this in mind to become a wise consumer. Share the info with everyone you care.
