You probably did not know this or ever pay attention to the bottom color of the toothpaste you buy. Well after knowing this, you will probably consider looking at your toothpaste before buying it next time.They are all differently labeled, with a different color, depending on their composition.
And their meaning is this:
- Green – All Natural
- Blue – Natural + Medicines
- Red – Natural + Chemicals
- Chemicals Black – All Chemicals
Some try to oppose this label by saying it has nothing to do with the composition and that the composition is written in the ingredients list.
Looks pretty convincing, doesn’t it? Well, it’s an urban legend. Here’s the truth about those stripes
The story on the meaning of the stripes is this: They have nothing what-so-ever to do with anything that would even vaguely interest a consumer. Long story short, it only relates to packaging and the stripes can be read by a scanner.
The urban legend grew out of someone having way to much time on their hands and probably loves throwing a scare into people.
Here’s a great way to find out what really is the make-up of your toothpaste: READ THE INGREDIENTS ON THE SIDE OF THE PACKAGE!
But there are multiple articles showing that this is the truth. And in the end, the decision is yours.
