Xylitol technology and clinical tests

An increasingly popular sweetener, xylitol is a safe ingredient that has many facets. This substance is appreciated in the industry and favourable to oral health. 

What is Xylitol used for? 

You’ll be surprised by its many uses in everyday life. Xylitol is a sweetener of natural origin. It turns out that we consume it without knowing it as it’s present in many various products. Humans can even produce it daily. 

It is an excellent substitute for regular sugar as it contains 40% fewer calories and has a low impact on blood sugar levels. It is recommended for people with diabetes who must limit their intake of white sugar. 

Why do we use this ingredient in our products? 

According to several studies, this ingredient is useful for dental health. It helps in the absorption of calcium and the strengthening of teeth. Unlike sugar, xylitol prevents the production of acid, a bacteria that weakens tooth enamel. It contributes to reducing bacteria to counter the appearance of cavities and prevent their formation. Finally, it is even able to act on inflammatory diseases.  Thanks to its many benefits, it is the go-to as an ingredient in our products. Therefore, we decided to include it in the composition of our naturapeutic toothpaste. 

Clinical tests have also proven its essential role in the prevention of dental cavities for younger children. As a company that listens to consumers’ needs, we are proud to offer naturapeutic children’s toothpaste. Reliable and non-hazardous in case of indigestion, you won’t have to worry about your child swallowing toothpaste.

Despite the name, you won’t be disappointed with this ingredient. We invite you to discover its benefits by using our effective and 100% natural naturapeutic toothpaste. They will undoubtedly become a mainstay in your bathroom.

Everything you need to know about our NaturaDri technology.

Green Beaver is proud to offer THE FIRST and only aluminum-free antiperspirants available on the market- a natural alternative created from our own technology called NaturaDri. You might have some questions regarding this topic and that’s why we’re here to give you some information in this article. We’ll explain everything you need to know!

In the cosmetics industry, it’s not surprising to find numerous deodorants and antiperspirants on the market that contain aluminum salts. Their role is to reduce the production of sweat and to act effectively against humidity by blocking the pores of the skin. However, aluminum salts, for many years now, have been the subject of extensive criticism and seem to represent a real danger to  consumers’ health. According to various studies conducted on the subject, it is strongly recommended to not use products containing aluminum and even less on damaged skin. 

It was therefore essential for us to offer a natural antiperspirant alternative, free of potentially harmful ingredients, and thus meet the demands of our community. After several years of research and development, Green Beaver developed a brand-new technology: NaturaDri. 

A unique formulation of jojoba flower wax esters, mimosa wax esters and other plant extracts, NaturaDri aims to form a natural protective barrier to keep your underarms dry. And instead of using aluminum that penetrates the sweat pores, we have created a compound that deposits a film on the surface of the skin that will prevent excessive sweating, all naturally.  


“Natura = Natural, Dri = Dry. NaturaDri = Stay dry, naturally.”


Thanks to this technology, the next generation of antiperspirants were also born. Now you can keep a fresh feeling all day long without a trace of aluminum in its composition. It combines natural organic ingredients that help soothe the skin, even after you shave. Dermatologist tested, our antiperspirant has been shown to be non-irritating and hypoallergenic. In addition, they are clinically proven to provide 24-hour protection while fighting moisture. It ensures that your underarms are not left irritated!

Now you know everything there is to know about our NaturaDri technology, an effective solution to prevent perspiration naturally. For fresh underarms, choose from our wide range of 100% natural aluminum-free antiperspirants. 

Our Story

Founded in 2002, Green Beaver was born from a desire to offer natural and safe products accessible to consumers. Karen Clark and Alain Ménard combined their years of experience and knowledge as biochemists and microbiologists to offer an alternative to the many dangerous chemicals on the market. Discover the steps Green Beaver has taken and what we have accomplished over the years! 

Green Beaver, a human company.

Karen and Alain, alarmed by the number of harmful ingredients used to create cosmetic products, are convinced that a natural approach is possible. Faced with Alain’s sister’s breast cancer diagnosis and the birth of their son, the couple decided to put their expertise to good use and formulate an all-natural product line. This is how the Green Beaver brand that we all love, was born. A company that takes care of your skin while considering the environment. Loyalty, rigour, and reliability are among the key values and are present in the daily life of the company.

The pivotal years: The evolution of Green Beaver 

During the 2000s, Green Beaver took off, broadening its horizons, and formulating new products. The year of 2009 is marked by the achievement of important milestones for the company. It built its own construction site in Hawkesbury and officially received its Ecocert certification. In 2011, Green Beaver achieves a real breakthrough by developing the first Canadian organic mineral sunscreen with the support of the National Research Council. And over the following years, it diversifies its line to the delight of its community. Soaps, deodorants, toothpaste, you name it.

Deodorant or Antiperspirant: Which one to choose?

Smelling fresh all day long? Yes, it is possible! Green Beaver is proud to offer you a complete range of natural deodorants and antiperspirants. Healthy and safe, they are the solution to any odor problems. Both sharing many similarities, it can be difficult to choose between one or the other. Green Beaver is here to answer all your questions. Find out more to ensure you make the right decision and find the right product for your needs. 

The difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant? 

Made with natural ingredients, our antiperspirants do not contain aluminum or potentially harmful ingredients such as parabens and artificial fragrances commonly found in conventional antiperspirants. It’s formulated to provide long-lasting protection by creating a natural barrier over the pores for soft, healthy underarms. 

Natural deodorants, on the other hand, do not fight against sweat. They fight against the bacteria who is responsible for unpleasant odours. Thus, thanks to their formulation, they glide gently over your skin to mask all traces of unwanted odours and eliminate bacteria. Your underarms will be kept clean and fresh without any harmful ingredients that will strip your skin. 

So, which one should you choose…a deodorant or an antiperspirant?

As you can see, both accompany the natural process of perspiration by limiting odours. On the other hand,  deodorant only neutralizes the development of the bad smell while the antiperspirant prevents it. For those who wish to avoid excessive sweating, our antiperspirants are the right products for you. They are for people who want a healthy solution to stay dry all day long. If you are comfortable with a little feeling of wetness, our natural deodorants are formulated to meet the needs of people who prefer an instant freshness effect. 

In summary, there are many factors that come into play when making your final decision. Whatever your choice, Green Beaver guarantees natural products that you can use safely while respecting your body and the environment!
