As a consumer, we often tend to get attracted towards the advertising, branding, and marketing of the product especially in the case of toothpaste. Some companies promise their herbal products while other suggest teeth whitening with its medicinal properties. However, as a consumer, we should be aware of a little fact that we often tend to ignore about toothpaste.
The type or the ingredient of the toothpaste is conveyed by the square or rectangular stripe on the back side of a toothpaste. Not every stripe is of the same color. They come in black, red, green and blue colors. The color of the stripe has a special meaning. It reveals the composition of the toothpaste.
What do the marks mean?
- A black colored stripe on the bottom of the toothpaste tube means the ingredients of the paste are only chemicals.
- A red colored stripe on the bottom of the toothpaste tube means the paste contains both natural and chemical ingredients.
- A blue colored stripe on the bottom of the toothpaste tube means the composition is natural in combination with medicines.
- A green colored stripe on the bottom of the toothpaste tube means the toothpaste contains only natural ingredients.
So the next time you go for shopping a toothpaste, take a look at the colored box at the bottom of the toothpaste tube. Choose the variant that is fit for you and suits you. You may alternatively use a non-commercial home-made toothpaste for improving your oral or dental health problems.
