Best Answer

There are several versions of Crest (the Proctor & Gamble company is particularly cryptic about providing these lists of ingredients).

The classic "cavity protection" formula includes:

- sorbitol and sodium saccharin (sweetener and base)

- cellulose gum (thickener)

- water (as hydrated silica)

- sodium lauryl sulfate (soap)

- trisodium phosphate (surfactant)

- sodium phosphate

- sodium fluoride (cavity fighter)

- titanium dioxide (opaque white pigment)

- FD&C Blue 1 (color)

- natural and artificial flavor (from mint)
