Dr Ginger’s: Wholesome, Quality Ingredients You Can Feel Good About
You can tell a lot about a product by what goes into it.
Sometimes more importantly, you can tell a lot about a product by what doesn’t go into it.
From the beginning, our goal at Dr Ginger’s has always been to make products that are as wholesome as they are effective. Our unique formulas were developed by dentists to ensure a healthy (and delicious!) line of oral care products ideal for all ages.
Here is what you will find in Dr Ginger’s products:
Coconut oil is our main ingredient and one that has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. The natural cleansing, detoxifying and antibacterial properties inherent in coconut oil provide the foundation for our Coconut Oil Toothpaste and Coconut Oil Mouthwash.
Hydrated Silica comes from natural silica (in its mineral form). It is used as a thickening and stabilizing agent as well as a mild abrasive that helps with teeth cleaning and whitening.
Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is derived naturally from plant and animal fats. A water-soluble liquid with no color or odor, glycerin has a slightly sweet taste and is known for its preservative and antibacterial properties.
Xylitol is a natural sweetener, derived mainly from plants, that provides a number of oral health benefits. In addition to helping prevent plaque buildup, it promotes a healthy oral environment. (You can read all about the benefits of xylitol here.)
Irish Moss is actually a type of seaweed packed with beneficial nutrients. Because it is often used as a natural thickener, it’s perfect for our Coconut Oil Toothpaste! Irish moss also has natural antioxidant properties.
Sodium Coco-Sulfate is a natural foaming agent made from coconut oil. Unlike chemical foaming agents, which can irritate skin cells, sodium coco-sulfate is a gentler alternative.
Aloe Vera Juice, from the aloe vera plant, is another ingredient widely known for its healing and antioxidant properties. In addition to supporting healthy skin, aloe vera juice is also a natural detoxifier.
Titanium Dioxide is derived from a naturally occurring mineral and is used as a white pigment in our oral care products.
Natural Mint Flavor, combined with the subtle flavor of coconut, creates an unforgettable taste that is refreshing and delicious.
Zinc Chloride cleans teeth and helps prevent bad breath by reducing the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
Ascorbic Acid, or vitamin C, is considered an essential nutrient and is found in most dietary supplements. We love it for its natural antioxidant properties.
Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate is made from coconut oil and derived from sarcosine, an amino acid found in almost all plants and animals. We use it in our Coconut Oil Mouthwash to ensure a foamy, fresh cleaning experience you can feel good about.
Pure water – this one speaks for itself!
Here is what you won’t find in Dr Ginger’s products:
Like we said before, the ingredients you don’t see are often just as important as those you do, which is why you won’t find these ingredients on our labels:
- Fluoride (and here’s why)
- Sodium lauryl sulfate (a chemical foaming agent known to cause skin, eye and lung irritation)
- Artificial sweeteners
- Coloring agents
