Mineralizing Activated Charcoal Toothpaste
For about 4 years our family has been using this toothpaste daily and have had great ongoing results. We have had a lot of requests for a healthy chemical free toothpaste like this and we are excited to share this with our friends and relatives.
Our little ones love seeing themselves when they brush with this toothpaste...when first applied your teeth are black...kids will smile and laugh and continue to brush the black from their teeth. This is a fun part of using this toothpaste.
A little bit goes a long way. You can use this as your normal toothpaste, apply to toothbrush, and brush all surfaces of your teeth. Rinse and spit and so on. One family member, after they brush, will keep the toothpaste in their mouth and use it as an "oil pull" (swish the toothpaste and ingredients around and inbetween the teeth for about 5-10 minutes. This helps eliminate more bacteria and get the healthy minerals from the toothpaste to places the brush can't get to). After this then rinse and spit. The choice is yours. Below is a list of our ingredients and brief overview of their benefits to healthy oral care.
Coconut Oil: Eliminates harmful bacteria in the mouth, helps reduce plaque and fights gingivitis, prevents tooth decay, helps fight bad breath, promotes tooth whitening, and it’s natural and chemical free.
Activated Charcoal: Whitens teeth as it pulls toxins from the mouth and removes stains. It can be helpful in changing the pH of the mouth, effectively killing the bad bacteria present in tooth decay and gingivitis.
Calcium Carbonate: Mineral, which has significant impact on the strength and hardness of dental enamel. Along with providing hardness, calcium carbonate has also been shown to exhibit whitening powers on teeth too.
Baking Soda: Fights germs that cause bad breath, reduces risk of gum disease, balances the acidic level in one’s mouth, natural tooth whitener, reduces symptoms of toothache, improves overall oral health.
Diatomaceous Earth: DE is naturally abrasive, it’s used in many kinds of toothpaste and is effective at polishing teeth. It also draws stains out of teeth, making them whiter. Plus, the silica in DE strengthens the enamel of our teeth
Xylitol: Xylitol has antimicrobial properties, which make it more difficult for plaque bacteria to stick to teeth and multiply. This helps reduce the risk of tooth decay. Xylitol enhances remineralization, or the process of vital minerals present in saliva being reintegrated into weakened tooth enamel. Again, this helps reduce tooth decay, arresting the growth of existing cavities and preventing new ones from forming. Remineralization can also help relieve tooth sensitivity.
Peppermint Essential Oil: One of the most popular uses of peppermint oil is to freshen breath, but the oil itself kills bacteria and fungus, both of which can cause infections in the mouth or lead to the development of cavities. Peppermint oil is especially effective against anaerobic bacteria, which thrive in a low-oxygen environment such as the spaces between teeth or below the gum line where cavities can form and thrive. Did we mention it tastes and smells great!
This comes in a 2 ounce recyclable tin with screw top lid.
Warning: Activated charcoal can stain your toothbrush, and also your sink if the porcelain is scratched. Our product contains activated charcoal from coconut, and coconut oil as well. If you have an allergic reaction to coconut, please do not use.
