If you’re still using conventional toothpaste, know that the biggest brands in oral care have often been the biggest culprits for containing harmful ingredients like fluoride, triclosan, and calcium chloride to name a few. It’s safe to say, we unknowingly ingest a lot of poison every year just by brushing our teeth.
Risks from simply ingesting a fluoride toothpaste include permanent tooth discoloration (dental fluorosis), stomach ailments, acute toxicity, skin rashes (perioral dermatitis), and impairment in glucose metabolism.
Therefore, I encourage you to do your research and make a switch to organic oral care for yourself and most definitely your kids.
On today’s show, I’ll be chatting with Kori Estrada, the Co-Founder of the new natural oral care company RiseWell, and co-CIO of Axon Capital, an asset management firm in New York. With a focus on consumer, technology and healthcare related investments throughout her career in both public and private markets, Kori is passionate about innovative companies and brands that are moving the needle in these specific industries. Prior to joining Axon Capital, Kori was an Associate at Shumway Capital Partners and an Analyst in the Investment Banking Division at UBS Investment Bank. She received her BA from Columbia University majoring in Economics and Philosophy. In her spare time, she can be found fishing with her husband and fellow Co-Founder John in the North Fork of Long Island, spending time with her 2-year old son Leo or cooking healthy recipes for her personal blog KoKoButter.com.
