Elmex is a brand of toothpaste that has been sold since 1962. It is manufactured by GABA International AG, a Swiss manufacturer of branded oral care products located in Therwil. It was the first toothpaste to contain the organic amine fluoride (AmF) olaflur as an active ingredient for protection against dental caries. Elmex is often sold together with Aronal which should be used in the morning. Aronal contains vitamin A to protect the gums against inflammation. Elmex also contains microplastics, endangering the environment. Toxic microplastics can be swallowed by using this toothpaste.
