Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this taste like turmeric? Is it yellow?

    No, it doesn't taste like turmeric nor is it yellow, so it won't stain your teeth.  When we isolated the most powerful ingredient from turmeric, we serendipitously found out that it was not only tasteless, but also bright white!

  • Why choose a natural toothpaste and mouthwash?

    Unfortunately, the personal care products industry is one of the least regulated industries in the U.S. You will also not find products that offer value-added benefits that extend beyond your mouth. Many toothpastes and mouthwashes contain nonessential ingredients that may be harmful to your health.  Your mouth is one of the most absorbent areas of your body. That means toxic ingredients in many oral care products can pass easily into your bloodstream.  Some of these ingredients have been linked to allergies, reproductive system toxicity, endocrine disruption, cancer, and other health problems.

  • What makes your products better than other natural toothpastes and mouthwash?

    Not all “natural” toothpastes and mouthwash are created equal. Many oral care products marketed as “natural” may still contain toxic ingredients.  Vingt products contain only the safest, high-quality ingredients and are formulated to offer optimal health benefits. It’s the first line of oral care products with a functional bioactive ingredient – curcumin – that provides not only oral health benefits, but whole-body benefits as well. Incorporating powerful antioxidants and plant extracts into oral care products is not new. However – unlike Vingt’s formulations – the concentrations and delivery mechanisms of these ingredients are far too low and far too inefficient for them to be detectable in the bloodstream.

  • Does it fight cavities?

    Xylitol--one of the active ingredients in Vingt's Healthy Edge toothpaste--is 4x more effective than fluoride at fighting cavities--without any of the harmful side effects.

  • Will it whiten my teeth?

    Yes.  The gentle polishers in Vingt's Healthy Edge toothpaste help to prevent stains from accumulating on to tooth enamel.

  • Will it foam in my mouth?

    Not so much.  Our formula does not contain harmful sulfates, so you won't see a lot of foaming action.

  • Can your products help relieve dry mouth?

    Our products contain 99% refined glycerin which is derived from a mixture of vegetable sources. Vegetable glycerin helps to balance and maintain moisture levels within the oral tissues, as well as soothe sore gums and mouth irritations. Our products also contain xylitol, which naturally helps increase salivation.

  • I’m pregnant. Can I still use your products?

    Vingt products are carefully formulated to be gentle and safe. However, some of the botanicals used in the formula may be contraindicated during pregnancy. We recommend that you check with your doctor before use if you are pregnant.

  • Is it safe to swallow your toothpaste and mouthwash?

    Although we would not recommend ingesting large amounts of our mouthwash and toothpaste, a little bit certainly won’t harm you.

  • Is it safe for children?

    Yes. Vingt's Healthy Edge toothpaste is perfect for children as it does not contain harmful ingredients that are present in other toothpastes.

  • Will your products stain my teeth?

    Nobody likes yellow teeth (unless you’re a zombie!). That’s why we use a colorless form of curcumin and use no artificial colors in our formulation. We also incorporated ingredients that actually help prevent teeth from staining.

  • Will it make my breath feel fresher?

    Yes!  Vingt uses a proprietary blend of essential oils that freshen breath naturally. 

  • Is it suitable for people with sensitive teeth?

    Yes. We have incorporated calcium phosphate to help reinfuse areas of tooth enamel with calcium and phosphate ions (which is what teeth are made of, btw).

  • Can you use this toothpaste with an electric toothbrush?

    Absolutely.  In fact, we recommend using an electric toothbrush for optimal cleanliness.

  • Should I rinse after brushing with the toothpaste?

    To allow the tissues in your mouth to absorb the maximum amount of curcumin in our toothpaste, we do not recommend that you rinse after brushing.

  • Where are your products made?

    We are proud to say that all our products are manufactured right here in the USA.

  • Are your products gluten-free? Dairy-free? Soy-free? What about MSG?

    Vingt products are free of any MSG, dairy, wheat or gluten-containing ingredients.

  • Are your products nut-free?

    Vingt products are all free of peanuts and tree nuts.

  • Does the mouthwash contain alcohol?

    No – there is no alcohol in any of our products.

  • Do you test your products on animals?

    We are HUGE animal lovers and it would be unthinkable for us to test our
    products on our furry/feathery/scaly little friends! Our products are independently tested for quality and safety in two separate facilities, right here in the USA.

  • What’s the benefit of using a “sulfate-free” toothpaste and mouthwash?

    Sulfates are detergent scrubbers used in many toothpastes that create foam when you brush. They remove or “scrub away” the natural protective oils in the tissues of our mouth lining. When used on a regular basis, toothpastes and mouthwashes that contain sulfates have been known to cause painful canker sores and sloughing (or “peeling away”) of gum tissue.

  • Are there any risks of using your products while on any medications?

    We recommend consulting your physician about any possible drug interactions with our products.

  • Are your products compliant with California’s Proposition 65?

    Our products are made with ingredients that are in compliance with the California Safe Cosmetic Act and Proposition 65. Any ingredients which may appear on the Proposition 65 list are below safe harbor levels, as defined by the state of California, and therefore no warning statements are required.
