Yunnan Baiyao toothpaste is accused of adding prescriptions. Should gum bleeding use effective toothpaste?

To improve gum bleeding, using Yunnan Baiyao toothpaste has become the consensus of many consumers. When encountering oral problems (bad breath, swelling of gums, bleeding, bleeding), most people want to pin on “efficacy toothpaste”. If the gums are sore, they buy anti -acid toothpaste.

This kind of consumption habit seems to have no problem, but recently, a popular science doctor Boya said that Yunnan Baiyao toothpaste added western medicine ingredients, which contains ammonia methamphetamic acid. The main role of this drug is to stop bleeding coagulation.

Boya said that ammonia methamphetamine is a hemostatic medicine commonly used by hematologists, and it is also a prescription medicine. The prescription medicine must have a doctor’s certificate. This post has triggered the discussion of many netizens. Should gum bleeding use Yunnan Baiyao toothpaste? Is it illegal to add prescription drugs to toothpaste?

In addition to Yunnan Baiyao extracts, Yunnan Baiyao toothpaste composition table has also added ammonia methamphetamic acid with hemostasis


Why is the “medicinal” rampant?

Toothpaste, as a cosmetics, the state is banned from explicitly or implied that it has a medical effect. There is no concept of cosmetic cosmetics in my country, that is, toothpaste is not allowed to mention the function of treating diseases.


However, the reality is that the outer packaging of the toothpaste is printed with “Chinese herbal medicine, clearing teeth, clearing gum protection, relieving gum bleeding, repairing mucosal damage”, etc. It can be said that it is commonplace.

However, this is a problem: effective toothpaste has “medicinal” effect -if there is no “medicinal” effect, where does the “curative effect” from preventing and reducing certain oral problems?


Let’s take a look at the well -known Chinese medicine toothpaste.


Shuke Safflower Clear Fire toothpaste Package mentioned that it contains the “Chinese Herbal Medicine Clear Fire Formula, which is scientific verification to help relieve the redness and swelling of the gums, bleeding and other discomfort”


Zhonghua Huaqing toothpaste is based on the characteristics of high mountain white chrysanthemum and lily.


At present, the traditional Chinese medicine toothpaste on the market is mainly divided into two types, one directly contains Chinese herbal medicine, and the other contains Chinese herbal medicine extracts. Both Chinese herbal medicine and extracts must not violate the “Cosmetics Sanitation Specifications”, “Regulations on Toothpaste Raw Materials” and “Catalog of Materials Materials for Cosmetics”. The familiar first -level carcinogen betel nut, iodine, mimosa, chipping, estrogen, laurel tree oil and other substances, but do not clearly specify the widely used Chinese herbal medicine materials.

The content of Chinese herbal medicines and extracts in the toothpaste is also unlimited. In fact, the mechanism of the role of Chinese herbal medicine is not clear, the pharmacological evaluation model is not standardized, and we cannot well clarify the “composite” ingredients of Chinese herbal medicine and the control of the amount of Chinese herbal medicine in the toothpaste. The land is soaked and extracted with water or ethanol solution, and then added to the toothpaste, and even a small amount of plant essential oil contains the flavors, which is also called traditional Chinese or Chinese herbal medicine toothpaste.

Because the medicinal toothpaste does not specify a unified standard, coupled with the special “medicinal” effect of the propaganda, the long -term advertising effect, the “medicine and food homologous” thinking, and people’s tolerance for traditional Chinese medicine, consumers are more consumers more It is easy to accept and believe that long -term use of Chinese medicine toothpaste can prevent and replace dental diseases.

What does toothpaste “efficacy”?

After using Chinese medicine toothpaste, many people feel that their teeth are not sour and bleeding. What is going on? In fact, it is not necessarily the role of “traditional Chinese medicine”, and it may also be the assistance of other chemicals. For example, in addition to Yunnan Baiyao toothpaste, in addition to Yunnan Baiyao’s active ingredients, ammonia methyl acid is also added -also known as hematopoietic acid. The pharmacological effects of inflammation, treating various hemorrhagic diseases and abnormal bleeding during surgery. This type of Chinese medicine toothpaste is not suitable for patients with hematological diseases who have taken anticoagulant drugs for a long time.

Periodontitis can cause bad breath. Gingivitis can bleed the gums, brush a few more teeth, and clean up bacteria such as plaque, which is definitely good. The long -term consulted the information and found that many scholars recommend that they do not rely on toothpaste to cure dental diseases. For example, bleeding gum bleeding may be a lesion in a certain part of the body, and the use of toothpaste to “suppress the disease”. In addition, healthy people should not use drug toothpaste at will, or they may destroy the balance of the oral microorganism.

In addition, my country also has a toothpaste that has obtained national medicine batch numbers, which can be purchased under the guidance of a doctor.

Ding boron cream, national medicine quasi -type toothpaste, has anti -inflammatory and analgesic effects, used for gingivitis, periodontitis, gingival red swelling, stomatitis, etc.

The new norms have not yet been released

What is the reason why the toothpaste products that cannot be claimed and implied to the effect of medicine are full of the market? In fact, it is still the issue of the management system.

In 2015, the General Administration of Food and Drug Administration revised the “Cosmetics Health Supervision Regulations” implemented in 1990, and drafted the “Cosmetics Supervision and Administration Regulations (Revised Draft Review Draft)” to the State Council. It is still promoting the introduction of the regulations, and the “Technical Requirements for Chinese Medicine toothpaste” has not yet been skimmed. When can technology and conditions mature, it is worth our attention and thought.


As of the release date, Yunnan Baiyao responded to the matter: it did use ammonia methamphetamic acid. Many brands of toothpaste were placed in this ingredient.

The Yunnan Food and Drug Administration said that because the ingredient is not within the list of disabled ingredients in the production of toothpaste, it can still be used.
