Fortunately, I am one of the luck people who are quite immune to acne- triggering products. But I know for a fact that Peri-Oral Contact Dermatitis is a type of acne that usually occurs at the mouth region, and is mostly caused or triggered by toothpaste. Yup, you've read it right--the traditional overnight zit cure is also one of the culprits behind acne. Fluoride, Sulfate, Phosphates, and dyes are the commonly known toothpaste ingredients that trigger a flare- up. But don't fret--not all people are highly sensitive to these ingredients. (like me)
If you think you have Peri-Oral Dermatitis, or if you know someone who does, switch to an all- natural toothpaste that is devoid of acne- causing ingredients such as VMV Hypoallergenics' Elation Skin- Sensitive Fine Fresh Toothpaste.
I bought a tube for myself just to find out how an all- natural toothpaste tastes like. Folks, it is VERY different from regular toothpaste: It does not a have stinging minty sensation, has a smoother and more whipped texture, and a milky kind of taste. I love the fact that it has Xylitol, a fruit- derived sugar that fights cavities, and Calcium Lactate that help strengthen the teeth enamel. It also has natural peppermint oil for that fresh, minty taste. It comes in a taste- free variant as well--It's a very interesting product, although I think tasteless toothpaste is a little weird. :p
It took me a while before I got used to this toothpaste: In my first few days of usage, I was looking for the sheer minty burst of freshness in my mouth as this one is very, very gentle. I got to appreciate it more in my 3rd and 4th week of usage because I've noticed that it effectively tames AM breath. Last month, I have finally said goodbye to this tube and even if I want to maintain it, I find it a little expensive for my budget. Besides, I do not have Peri-Oral Contact Dermatitis.
It's also a good alternative for people who are willing to spend on a gentle toothpaste, and those who often get burns and blisters inside their mouth from using commercial toothpaste.
