But did you know that your mouth has an absorption efficiency rate of more than 90 percent? So even though you don’t swallow your toothpaste, the 20 gallons of toothpaste you use over your lifetime is making its way into your bloodstream. That’s a lot of toothpaste pumping in your blood. And most conventional toothpastes contain several toxic chemicals and preservatives, such as:
And rather than using artificial flavors or sweeteners (yuck), each of our tooth powders are flavored with different essential oils, herbs, and resins, which provide their own unique benefits.

We think she nailed it.

To use: run your toothbrush under water, dip the wet brush head into the jar, brush like normal with the powder that attached to toothbrush bristles. Rinse and enjoy the feeling of cleaner, whiter teeth!
Please note: All flavors are safe for ages 10 & up, but if you have a little brusher on your hands, we highly recommend the Sweet Citrus or Spearmint flavors, since the other flavors can be a little too potent for their lil mouths and bodies. And for our expecting mamas, steer clear of the Frankincense & Myrrh until after your little one arrives. Check out the notes below for more safety information.
Also important: Do not put anything metal into the powder (like a metal spoon); the clay pulls metals into itself when it comes in contact with it. It is safe to brush with this tooth powder if you have metal fillings and/or braces, just do not swallow the powder because the clay may have been contaminated with metal particles.
Ingredients: calcium bentonite clay (Mojave Desert), *ceylon cinnamon, *turmeric, *clove, activated coconut charcoal,*essential oils of orange and grapefruit
