Toothpaste is a staple in our daily routines, and has been since as early as 3000 BCE. But as we have evolved as humans, so has our toothpaste. Packed with synthetic colors, artificial sweeteners, and chemical additives, they raise concerns about their negative effects on both our well-being and the planet.


The good news is that healthier alternatives are within reach, offering us a chance to care for our oral health without compromising our bodies or the environment. So, if you’re looking for a sparkling white smile without increasing your toxic burden, this episode is for you. In this episode of the Darin Olien Show, we will explore solutions for the Fatal Convenience, Toothpaste.
