More about the ingredients: The toothpowder itself has not undergone studies in order to make any medical claims in regards to prevention of tooth decay or gum disease, but the specific ingredients have been involved in studies as outlined below.
Magnesium Hydroxide - a food grade antacid. In the tooth powder it is used to neutralize acids in your mouth, which has been shown to promote healthy gums and teeth. Additionally it creates a creamy texture in your mouth, helping the tooth powder to feel more like a traditional toothpaste.
Birch Xylitol - a food grade, natural sweetener derived from non gmo birch. In the tooth powder it is intended to naturally sweeten the taste of the tooth powder. Birch xylitol has also been shown to reduce tooth decay and gum disease.
Sodium Bicarbonate - aka Baking Soda. In the tooth powder it is intended to neutralize acid in your mouth and assist with brushing away food particles.
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate - a natural mild foaming agent derived from coconut oil. It is arguably the most mild and safest foaming agent available, and is often found in other natural toothpastes including baby toothpaste. In the tooth powder it makes up less than 5% of the recipe, but gives the powder that traditional toothpaste feel and aids in cleaning your mouth and teeth.
Organic Peppermint Essential Oil & Organic Spearmint Essential Oil- These essential oils are included in the tooth powder for a natural minty flavor. Some dentists believe that the oral use of these essential oils (in correct proportion) help promote healthy mouth bacteria.
