Red Seal Natural Toothpastes


Why I am choosing Natural?
- A more natural brushing experience is now available from New Zealand! -



Of all the personal care products we routinely use, none is more important than the one we put into our mouth. With the launch of the highly trusted New Zealand brand today at Bangsar South, Red Seal Natural Toothpaste allows us to have a more natural and safer brushing experience. 

 “The mucosal lining inside the mouth has about 90% absorption efficiency and we are exposing our health to many toxic chemicals (in the toothpaste) without us knowing it. Therefore, we want the ingredients in our toothpaste to be as natural as possible.” Red Seal’s resident Naturopathic expert Michelle Irving highlights during her speech. 

Consumers are looking for healthier alternatives for themselves and for those around them.  Especially as they become aware of potential irritants in the form of synthetic chemicals in mainstream products.  Such irritants can include artificial colours and flavours, triclosan, parabens and microbeads.

Red Seal natural toothpastes replaces those chemicals with more natural herbal extracts and essential oils like eucalyptus, aniseed & peppermint. The combination of ingredients makes the toothpaste highly alkaline (pH >8), creating an environment discouraging the growth of bacteria.

One example of a unique natural ingredient originates from the Totara tree, a native tree of New Zealand. Totarol Oil is a naturally occurring plant extract that comes from recycled Totara.  Totarol is a natural alternative for reducing bad bacteria in our mouth.

The natural toothpaste range also has a calcium carbonate base which naturally rebuilds, or remineralises, the teeth.

As a natural healthcare organisation, Red Seal has been combining scientific knowledge with more natural ingredients since 1923.  In the case of toothpaste, Red Seal has been providing consumers with this more natural choice for 34 years.

Red Seal natural toothpaste comes from New Zealand, which is known for its clean green environment, beautiful water and fresh air. Providing additional reassurance to consumers is the country’s highly regarded food safety system.

“With 99% market share in the herbal toothpaste category in New Zealand, Red Seal has expanded from a strong base to being available in Australia, China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, across the Pacific and now in Malaysia” said Tony Robinson, International Director for Red Seal.

When there is a natural alternative to everything, why not?
If you are serious about the health of you and your family, you should consider Red Seal Natural Toothpaste. A more natural choice. 

There are a total of 5 varieties available, with the signature being their Natural Toothpaste. It is a combination of 12 herbs and extracts to help remineralization and killing off the bacteria to prevent tooth decay and plaque formation. It has a mild, minty pleasant taste, and is suitable for the whole family. 

For individuals who are ulcer-prone, there is a special formula, Natural SLS Free Toothpaste. It is free-of-Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS).  It provides gentle protection on the mucosa layer. It is also suitable for people who wear teeth braces.


The Baking Soda Toothpaste is used to remove stains naturally, suitable for coffee or tea drinkers. It has also been used as a natural teeth whitener. The Propolis Toothpaste contains 100% New Zealand bee propolis with antiseptic and antibacterial properties, ideal for sufferers of gingivitis and sensitive gums. 

Last but not least, the natural Kids Toothpaste for the little ones. The taste is enhanced with real banana and peach flavours! The great taste encourages the kids to brush their teeth without having to worry about the risk of swallowing harmful chemicals. 

 “We are delighted to be able to bring Red Seal Natural Toothpaste from New Zealand to Malaysian shores. It is in-line with our belief to bring in more natural, healthier and safer options for Malaysians” says Joyce Chung, Product Manager of Red Seal brand in Malaysia.


The range of Red Seal Natural toothpastes is distributed in Malaysia, between RM18.70 to RM28.20. They are available exclusively at Caring pharmacies nationwide.

3 Things to Know About Cremating a Loved One


When a loved one dies, you have to determine how to honor their wishes. The most common options are cremation and burial. If you decide to cremate, there are a few key things that you should know.

You Can Schedule an Open Casket

There is a misconception that if you choose cremation, there can be no open casket viewing. However, you can still opt for an open casket during the funeral itself. Afterward, the body is then cremated and provided to the family. Some people prefer to say goodbye by seeing the body, so this is an option you can consider.

Various Options are Available

When the body is cremated, you have options in terms of how to receive it. You can select an urn for the ashes to be placed inside of. If you plan on keeping a loved one’s memory alive, this may be the best option. Urns are decorative and can be placed on a mantle or bookshelf.
Another option is to simply have the ashes placed into a bag, which then goes inside of a box. This method is best if you plan on scattering the ashes, such as over a lake or at a park. Remember, if you plan on scattering the ashes at a public site, you need to get permission from the owner of the property.
There is also the ability to choose a plot at a mausoleum, which is commonly located in a cemetery. The ashes are placed inside of a drawer and a plaque is located on the outside.

It’s an Affordable Option

Cremation is considered the more affordable option upon a loved one’s death. Burials are more expensive because of the cost of the casket as well as the burial site preparation.
By exploring cremation Westchester IL residents are able to learn about what to do when a loved one dies. When you want to discuss the options, it’s important to talk with a funeral home.

Red light therapy for skin

If you're insecure about your skin, know that there are so many ways to improve it. In addition to drinking lots of water and washing your face every day, consider implementing these four tips to make your skin really glow.

 1. Professional Treatments
Professional treatments are incredibly helpful for anyone that really wants to get rid of their skin issues in a direct way. Professionals are equipped to handle the intricacies of red light therapy for skin and microdermabrasion. When you go to a professional, you'll experience a stronger grade of ingredients in the different treatments.

2. Hydration & Moisture
Hydration and moisture are really important elements to include as you work toward improving your skin. You can start by hydrating the skin with lots of moisturizing creams that work perfectly for your skin type. If you have oily skin, don't make the mistake of avoiding moisturizers. Your skin type needs it too. Sheet masks are increasingly popular. Sheet masks are thin sheets filled with essential oils, essences and water. After you've placed the sheet masks on a clean face, allow the liquids to seep into your skin for 15 to 20 minutes. The result is a hydrated and glowing face.

3. Exfoliation
Skin sheds and you want to make sure you're not holding on to dead skin cells. When you don't properly remove dead skin cells, they can clog up your pores and prove to be even more problematic. A few times a week, it's wise to slough off dead skin cells with a face scrub brush or an exfoliating scrub. You can easily make your own sugar or salt scrub at home. Lightly steam the skin first. Then, rub the scrub into damp skin. Once you've rubbed the mixture into the skin, rinse it off with lots of water. You'll have nice, smooth skin afterward.

4. Nutrition
Your skin is the largest organ of your entire body. In many cases, your skin serves as a good barometer to let you know that you need to increase the quality of your nutrition. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Nuts and grains are excellent for fiber. Drink lots of water and always take vitamins. Supplements like biotin and turmeric are great for decreasing inflammation or encouraging the growth of new skin cells.

Buying the Right Yacht for a Good Price

Will you be starting to shop around for a yacht in the near future? If this is the case, you need to be very careful how you spend your money. Yachts come in a very wide price range. You need to be very certain what you will be getting for your money. You should not be in a hurry to make your purchase. Take the time you need to educate yourself about all of the biggest companies that make yachts. Find out why some models are more popular than others. Here are some tips that will make buying a yacht a much easier process.

1. Go to some boat shows in your area.

Boat shows are a very easy and convenient way for you to get in contact with yacht dealers and the companies that actually make the boats. There will be representatives for all of the biggest dealers and most popular yacht brands. They will be able to answer all of your questions about the performance and features that each yacht has. You can also schedule a test drive of any yacht that you are interested in. Check online to find out when the next boat show is coming to your town.

2. Get the advice of other yacht owners.

It would be in your best interests to speak to people who have already gone through the process of buying a yacht. See if these people can recommend any reputable Florida yacht brokers to you. Find out why these people settled on the yacht they eventually wound up buying. Ask them if they encountered any negative experiences while they were shopping for a yacht. You should try to learn from the mistakes these people made.

3. Always compare prices from multiple yacht dealers.

There can sometimes be a very wide gap in the prices charged by different yacht dealers for the same boat. This is why you owe it to yourself to shop around for the lowest price. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing this. You would be foolish not to.
