Reality Behind This Consumer Tip:
Interestingly, this consumer tip which was circulating on the internet from a long period of time is totally false. Additionally, there is no link between the ingredients of the toothpaste and the colored mark at the end of the toothpaste tube. So, these claims were false.
Contradictory to the false consumer tip, the rectangular mark is made during manufacturing for the sensor machines. Further, when the tubes are passed through light beam sensors, it helps the machines to pack the toothpaste tubes. Also, this notifies the machine to cut, fold and seal the tube, during the process. Moreover, there are many other color marks on the bottom of the tube and every mark is made for the sensor machines.
Our Mushwarah to the consumers is to consider the expiry date, ingredients, and flavor of the toothpaste while purchasing it.
