  1. Hi Maia,
    I noticed from a product review on another website that
    jack n’ Jill toothpaste now contains ‘naturally derived’ potassium sorbate, whereas it did not always. Packaging still claims the product contains no preservatives, though it is listed in the ingredient list.
    Should we be concerned? I don’t see this mentioned on the toothpaste guide for J&J. Is there a reason it is not mentioned, that can bring us peace of mind? Thanks!

    • I’m not worried about the potassium sorbate BUT I will reach out and get more info on why it’s been added…Thanks for letting me know!
