Top beauty product stores and their must haves
Our must have: Cina-mint Natural Toothpaste
This fantastic toothpaste essentially does what every toothpaste on the market does – it cleans teeth and promotes healthy gums. But…the key ingredient of Cinna-mint is calcium glycerophosphate which provides a mineral-rich base that encourages stronger, cavity-free teeth. The cinnamon oil on the other hand helps fight bacteria and acts as a mild numbing agent for sensitive teeth. Cinna-mint Natural Toothpaste also features Tea Tree oil which is known to have antibacterial properties.

Lemongrass is known to have antioxidants that help your body fight off free radicals that damage cells.
