Thanks for the heads up. I've been avoiding triclosan in products as much as possible.

Minnesota put a ban on products using triclosan this last January. My mother just got a tube of Colgate from the hospital. I will have to check it to see if the triclosan is in it.

Luckily in India are available various ayurvedic toothpastes which do not contain any artificial chemicals or substances.

Why don't they apply the "take no risk" principle, bad until studies are complete ???

Whose campaign funds are inflated by Colgate???

It's amusing (or not, depending on your view) that Arm & Hammer "NATURAL" deodorant contains triclosan.

thank you for this news. my boyfriend, and his parents use colgate. I use ultrabrite. he's sleeping now, but I'll tell him as soon as he wakes up. I really appreciate you telling everybody this. they've been using Colgate forever. I won't use no other toothpaste, but ultrabrite. I'll have to check that.

Thank you so much for the heads up! I quit using the commercial toothpaste years ago. It works much better with simply coconut oil and I use a twig often as well, called miswak.
