A few months ago, I went to my dermatologist because my chin was breaking out as if I was a teenager. It was driving me nuts! My dermatologist said the culprit is toothpaste that has sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) in it. Apparently, I am allergic to the stuff and having a reaction that’s causing the nasty breakouts. If you are not aware, SLS is a chemically formulated foaming agent. It helps to create the bubbles and foaming that many people are used to when they brush their teeth or wash their hair.  Many people have sensitivities to it!

Choosing an SLS-Free Toothpaste

The good news is there are products on the market that are SLS-Free. I’ve been using Xyli-White™ from Now Solutions® since seeing my dermatologist because it’s SLS-Free. There’s a few different flavors but my favorite so far are cinnafresh and platinum mint. Both taste!. After brushing my teeth, I love how my mouth feels and breathe smells. A big bonus is I’ve noticed fewer breakouts since switching. If you’re breaking out, I highly suggest switching to an SLS-Free toothpaste, you might be sensitive to the chemical.

A few advantages to using Xyli-White™, besides it being SLS-Free:

  • Formulated with the purest ingredients
  • Uses Vegan Ingredients
  • Paraben-Free
  • Fluoride-Free
  • Helps whiten your teeth
  • Gluten-Free
  • Helps reduce plaque

Have you tried switching to an SLS-Free toothpaste?
