So while it might have started off natural, it is actually a processed sweetener, something that we should be avoiding.
    In toothpaste, it is supposed to help fight cavities, which is also why you see it in some chewing gums. But in excess can cause diarrhea and other side effects.

    Does this add to your confusion OP?
    Thanks
    I did end up calling them and
    they said it does contain Xanthan Gum which is fermented corn sugar.
    (I looked it up and it can cause tooth decay)
    but the Xylitol helps fight against cavities so the natural sugars shouldn't pose a problem... Just something to consider I suppose...

    But then in normal tooth past there are all the risks of fluoride ect... *confused*

    I do have an old tube that I could get the ingredients off?

    There is just a long list of scary crap so you might need to excuse the spelling mistakes.

    I also have a tube of Macleans if you want those ingredients too?

    This is the material data safety sheet for Colgate My First Tooth Paste.
    The Full ingredient list is on page 1 of 4.

    http://www.colgate.com.au/Colgate/AU...st_colgate.pdf

    There are a few ingredients in the Data Safety Sheet that are not labeled on the box of Colgate so it's worth a look.
    It also has the levels of each chemical in the product.

    Scary stuff. After reading that... I don't think I will brush DDs teeth with it even when she is over the age of 2


    Macleans Milk Teeth toothpaste 0-3years. Ingredients-

    Glycerin, Water, Hydrated Silica, Xylitol, PEG-6, Xanthanit gum, sodium fluroide, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Disodium, Phosphate, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Saccharin, Methylparaben, Propyparaben, C173360, C174160.

    Macleans has a slightly higher level of fluoride than Colgate.
