About Euthymol Toothpaste
Created by British company Johnson & Johnson, Euthymol is a brand of toothpaste that is known for being bright pink in colour. The toothpaste does not have a minty flavour, but instead tastes medicinal - a flavour that comes from the essential oils that it contains.
Euthymol is one of the oldest toothpaste brands in the world, and is recommended by a number of dentists to those suffering from tooth decay, bad breath and gingivitis. It also contains thymol, which gives the product its name - an antiseptic which can help to prevent mouth ulcers.
Euthymol toothpaste is also different to most commercial toothpaste brands in that it contains no fluoride. Fluoride is included in toothpastes to protect against the formation of cavities, but can be toxic if swallowed in large quantities. Toothpastes containing fluoride will feature a warning on the packaging to state that it can be harmful if swallowed, but the level of fluoride contained in toothpastes is claimed to be perfectly safe for both children and adults to use. Euthymol, however, contains no fluoride whatsoever, with its active ingredient of thymol doing the job of the fluoride instead. This makes Euthymol a good choice for those who are concerned about any potential dangers of fluoride-based toothpastes.
Both the smell and the taste of Euthymol are incredibly strong, with both scent and flavour having been described as antiseptic. The toothpaste is far thicker than most commercial toothpastes, and is claimed to make the mouth feel fresher and more like it has been cleaned thoroughly.
