Saccharin in Crest Toothpaste?

Q:

Saccharin in Crest Toothpaste?

A:

We use saccharin as a sweetener in Crest for a variety of reasons. Saccharin offers better stability both during manufacture and while on store shelves or in your medicine cabinet. Saccharin does not contribute to the development of cavities.

We're confident our use of saccharin is completely safe for our customers, or we would not use it. Consumers regularly ingest higher levels of saccharin in more frequently used foods and beverages than we would ever expect them to ingest by using Crest. And, of course, our use of saccharin is permitted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
