    As stevia is a sugar-free sweetener, it is often chosen as an ingredient in natural toothpastes. It also has antioxidant, tonifying and soothing qualities that are attributed to the presence of flavonoids. It is rich in glycosides which also give it softening, conditioning and moisturizing properties.
