You forgot about Radium.After it was discovered by Marie Curie,its property of radiating in the dark was exploited mostly by women to rinse their teeth or to be used in shampoos so their hair would glow in the dark.Even a famous watchmaker employed female workers to paint their watch-dials using very fine brushes which the persom would moist it in their mouths.Most of these people died of various cancers which was contributed to the use of Radium because it was Radioactive and highly toxic,which unfortunately even Marie Curie didn't realize at the time.

I have heard that in Turkish harems, women dyed the tips of their fingers with henna to be beautiful. Their hair as well, of course.

Urine is a strong disinfectant and bleaching agent, and it works well on cleansing teeth.
