Activated Bamboo Charcoal Tooth Powder, 2 oz
Flavors: Peppermint, Wintergreen
A 2 oz jar will last for approximately 50 brushes.
While you might not think that a black powder could actually whiten teeth, you'd be surprised. Activated Charcoal powder is excellent for dental health, whitens teeth, and pulls away toxins.
Will the black charcoal stain my teeth? No. It may be jarring to see a mouth full of black teeth while you're brushing, but it will rinse away completely, leaving clean, white teeth. It may, however, stain your toothbrush or hand towel, so make sure you rinse well.
Why use a tooth POWDER as opposed to a tooth PASTE? The answer is in the way Bentonite Clay works. Bentonite Clay is a key ingredient in this formula because of its ability to swell, attract and trap toxins and bacteria, then bind them. This happens by way of an electric charge on the molecular level that occurs when the clay reacts with liquid. By using this product in powder form you can delay that reaction until the exact moment when you begin brushing, giving it maximum bacteria fighting power, leaving your mouth clean and fresh.
This recipe has NO fluoride, SLS, glycerin, preservatives, ZERO artificial ingredients or chemicals, and includes plenty of naturally occurring trace minerals to make your teeth strong. Plus it is excellent for healthy gums, fights the bacteria that cause bad breath, whitens teeth, and leaves your mouth feeling clean and fresh.
Directions: Sprinkle about 1/8th teaspoon tooth powder onto a clean wet toothbrush. (You can dip your toothbrush into the jar if you like, but over time it can contaminate the jar.) Brush as usual. Swish and swallow. No need to spit!
The ingredients in this tooth powder are not only non-toxic but they are alkalizing and great for your overall health! This means no need to worry about kids swallowing the toothpaste. This product is SAFE for kids!
About my ingredients:
Calcium Carbonate- I use reliably sourced, vegan Calcium, which is a great source of Phosphorous, Magnesium, and Iron, and is important for the remineralization process.
Non-GMO Xylitol Powder sourced from birch- Xylitol is a natural sweetener derived from the fibrous parts of plants. It has a really nice cooling effect. It does not break down like sugar and can help keep a neutral pH level in the mouth. Xylitol also prevents bacteria from sticking to the teeth. This is how it protects the teeth from tooth decay. With the dental benefits of Xylitol, the acid attack that would otherwise last for over half an hour is stopped. Most people are not aware of this benefit because such a claim makes xylitol into a drug, crossing a boundary not allowed by the Food and Drug Administration.
Bentonite Clay- This ingredient is quite interesting. BC has a unique ability to bind to toxins, bacteria, and heavy metals, and pull them out of the mouth. It is also chock full of beneficial minerals like calcium, silica and magnesium.
Naturally Mined Baking Soda – This is added for its teeth-whitening and stain-fighting properties. Baking soda is aluminum free, despite many claims to the contrary. Our source, Noelle's Naturals, only uses 100% naturally mined baking soda, not the commercial kind that is treated with synthetic chemicals.
Organic Bamboo Activated Charcoal - Charcoal 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. Charcoal is hard in nature, but it will not scratch your teeth. In fact, it is one of the safest ways to whiten and deodorize your teeth.
Organic Neem Leaf Powder - Neem is highly effective in the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums and supports overall oral hygiene. It can prevent and treat gingivitis.
Essential Oils - I use high quality, food grade, essential oils for flavor and aroma.
