Color Codes on Toothpaste:

Usually, we see the flavor of the toothpaste while purchasing it and a few buyers consider the expiration date and ingredients of the toothpaste too. In addition, we see different phrases written on the toothpaste packing i.e. Whitening, Fresh Breath, for Smokers, and controls Cavity, etc. but have you ever noticed the rectangular mark? Definitely, Not!

A consumer tip has been circulating the internet for quite long which disclosed that these rectangular marks actually reveal the detail of toothpaste formula.

The detail of these colored marks is given below:

  1. Green Mark: All natural
  2. Blue Mark: Natural and Medicine combination
  3. Red Mark: Natural and Chemical combination
  4. Black Mark: Pure Chemical

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.
