CitationThe Regulation of Toothpaste (1997 Third Year Paper)
AbstractHumankind invented toothpaste for a variety of reasons, the most important of which is the prevention of this tooth decay. Usually, we, the buying public, do not see this product until it is in its familiar plastic tubing at the supermarket, complete with an easy-to-read (usually) label and brand name conveniently on the front. However, before their product reaches the shelves, manufacturers of toothpaste in this country are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration with various practices designed to protect the public. These practices include official FDA standards on toothpaste safety and effectiveness, as well as regulation of how much and which kind of ingredients are permitted in the formula.
