All Natural tooth powder in three great flavours (use dropdown box to choose). Now you don't need to buy toothpaste in a disposable plastic tube.

It's the ingredients that count! And when it comes in a recyclable aluminium container then you're onto a winner.

Since taste is so important, a great taste MEANS quality. We use a blend of highly functional ingredients. While the flavours (essential oils) differ in each product, there are a few that remain constant. Just as important for flavor, these ingredients bring real functionality.

This one container typically lasts one person 8-10 weeks if brushing twice daily.

 

Calcium Carbonate

Remineralization of Enamel, Whitening, Decreasing Sensitivity of Enamel

Research has indicated that using calcium carbonate can be a powerful ingredient to remineralize teeth with. It’s also shown in studies to decrease enamel sensitivity. Many products that are marketed for this purpose use calcium in their formula.

 

Himalayan Pink Salt and Sea Salt

Remineralization of Enamel, Whitening, Decreasing Sensitivity of Enamel

Salt is highly antibacterial naturally and is high in naturally occurring trace minerals. Teeth are porous bone structures. Bones need minerals. The base of our tooth powder provides tooth remineralization. And a big bonus is that it also provides soft abrasion (powdered sea salt is between 0.035 – 0.5 microns, which is extremely small)- just enough to rid tough stains.

 

High Quality Wild-Crafted and/or Organic Essential Oils

Antibacterial, Antiseptic, Anti-Inflammatory, Astringent, Antioxidant

“Wild crafted” is the name for plants that don’t typically come from farming, instead they are wild harvested. These plants are not conventionally farmed so very little equipment is used and no known chemicals are used. Some essential oils have promising effects against oral pathogens and suggest its likely usefulness to combat microbial grown. Essential oils have amazing healing properties for gums that are bleeding or inflammed. Our oils are critical to our tooth powder and we make sure we have THE highest quality.

 

Non GMO Xylitol

pH neutralizer, Inhibits Bacterial Growth

Pregnant women who chew xylitol up to 4 times a day produce babies who have significantly less caries up to 5 years of age. Why? Xylitol is a pH neutralizer. We love it. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that inhibits the growth of streptococcus mutants. We use a Non GMO form made from corn cobs. We chose this kind of xylitol because it’s HIGHLY renewable.

 

Sodium Bicarbonate

Antiplaque, Antiseptic, High Alkalinity, Teeth Whitening

Considered one of the best components of a toothpaste, “baking soda” was used for well over a century to clean teeth. It has suppporting research showing it’s usefulness in dental products. Still used in dentist’s offices for that final cleaning that leaves your teeth feeling smooth and wonderful, it offers a fine abrasion that takes stains off teeth (a mechanical
cleanser like the Celtic Sea Salt), is an ANTISEPTIC to prevent infections and it’s ALKALINE. Toothpaste that uses sodium bicarbonate has better teeth whitening and plaque removal POWERS.

 

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Potential Antibacterial, Antiplaque, Restores Moisture

Coconut oil has been and has been a traditional Indian folk dental remedy for thousands of years. Studies show it can prevent biofilm formation and it’s potential effectiveness against plaque. The fats in the oil also help with cracked lips and dry throat when used as a swish.

 

 

Organic Stevia

Antiplaque, Antibacterial

Biofilm is the “hairy tooth” feeling you get in your mouth when you don’t brush for a while. It’s caused by bacteria congregating. Some studies have shown stevia as a potential “biofilm buster”, while others show it improving bone health. We use just a pinch to balance flavour, but we like that is has some scientific merit for improving oral health.
