What does color code on health products really mean?

DSC02032I’ve heard of the toothpaste color code awhile back but didn’t pay too much attention to it because I only look at the ingredients list when I shop at my local health store to know if there are any chemicals in any of my household products.

However, I received a call from my mother-in-law yesterday and this morning telling me to make sure I don’t have any of the of red and black color codes on the products that her grandkids are using because those are 100% made from chemicals.  I double checked the ingredients on the box of my Jason toothpaste and decided to write a post about it.  I haven’t written for awhile now so it’s a good time for me to start on my blog again for the health and well-being of the web world.

Please don’t listen to what has been circulating around in emails and whichever other social media you have been reading.  Those color codes on the bottom of any of the health or beauty tubes are for manufacturing packaging purposes.  They need to align and crimp the tubes for the machines to insert them into the boxes only.

I do hope this will clear up anymore confusion on this subject as I’ve done the research myself on this topic as well.
