Does Crest contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)?

Q:

Does Crest contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)?

A:

All versions of Crest toothpaste contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). While we're aware of the rumors circulating on the internet, SLS/SLES is safe in consumer products when used as directed. These supposed safety concerns stem from some misquoted research and have no scientific basis. In fact, a search of scientific literature found nothing supporting these allegations. We've thoroughly tested our products to make sure they're safe.
