Go Ahead And Smile! Vegan Tangerine and Peppermint Tooth Powder/Polish
This product is not filled with a bunch of bleached ingredients.
After much research and lots of brushing, this formula was born! It is PACKED with stuff to give you a good, healthy, clean smile. Your teeth have never felt so clean AND they never have been! We use all natural goodies to actually clean and polish your teeth. Most over the counter pastes are FILLED with chemicals and harsh abrasives that actually destroy the enamel, and a lot of the ingredients have been linked to cancer and all sorts of other diseases. Tooth care should be at the top of your "green list." Your gums are one the most absorbent places on your body which makes it easy for chemicals to pass directly into your bloodstream.
Here's what's in it and what each one does:
Baking Soda: Buffers saliva for increased pH control. It has a mild abrasive effect, then it buffers the acids that are produced by the bacteria that cause plaque formation. This buffering effect has been shown to last for hours after brushing the teeth. Baking Soda will also help to whiten teeth.
Xylitol: This is a natural sweetener, oh but it is also so much more! Studies have shown that Xylitol actually strengthens tooth enamel, wards off yeast and bacteria, and eases canker sores. Clinical testing has proved that xylitol reduces the incidence of cavities and plaque formation and kill the germs that cause bad breath. It promotes the re-mineralization of tooth enamel. Bacteria try to use xylitol, but they cannot so their growth is inhibited. By inhibiting the growth of plaque bacteria, xylitol helps to give you a cavity-free smile. The positive effects of xylitol appear to be long lasting and may even be permanent. It is a natural replacement for fluoride.
Orange Peel Powder: natural teeth whitener
Bamboo: provides natural silica for whitening and stain removal
Spearmint Leaves: taste and breath freshening qualities
Alum: prevents yeast from growing, naturally fights bacteria and is wonderful for canker sores and other mouth ailments. It is also a tooth whitener and polish
Neem Leaf: antifungal, antibacterial, prevents and heals gum disease, prevents cavities, eliminates bacteria that cause cavities and inflammation of the gums, prevents bacteria from adhering to your teeth (reduce plaque, enhance mouth immunity in general, and through all this freshens breath)
Tangerine Essential Oil and Peppermint Essential Oil: flavor
Sapindus(soapnuts): lather and clean
This toothpaste is the best. It cleans and freshens breathe for long lasting results. The only downside is the container its in. It is too thick to come out of snap cap, so you have to unscrew the lid. It is hard to get on the toothbrush without wasting. Maybe they could look at changing container.
It's different, but it doesn't taste bad. Teeth feel clean afterwards. It's impossible to get out of bottle, so I use the end of a plastic spoon to get it out. My gums still bleed afterwards though :/. I was hoping that it would stop that.
I was honestly skeptical to try this at first. I have super sensitive gums (due to gingivitis) and was pleasantly surprised when I first tried this. After using this for about three months I had a dentist appointment and my gingivitis was gone! My teeth feel so clean and my dentist was in awe at the difference it made. My only complaint would be the taste is kind of hard to get used to but once I adjusted I couldn't stand sweet toothpaste anymore. As far as the container goes I just pour it into my hands and dab onto my toothbrush.
I really like this product! It's the first time I have tried a powder! It's really awesome and my teeth feel actually feel clean! Only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the tube it comes in! It's a little tricky to get out and I don't want to waste it!
I really like this tooth powder so far. I actually prefer to mix it with natural toothpaste, but you can use it on it's own too. My only complaint is the container. It's hard to pour a small amount out onto your toothbrush without spilling it everywhere, but the container is also not big enough to dip your toothbrush into. Otherwise, I love it.
i love this powder! after using my teeth feel so polished and clean
This is a wonderful product for anyone without sensitive teeth or gums, I'm sure! I was over the moon about it, for the first week, swearing I would never return to regular paste again! But, upon the second weeks arrival , my gums and teeth became very sensitive. I have had issues with sensitivity before so I'm sure it's me and not the product. It tastes fantastic and your teeth feel so clean! But, sadly I can't use it. :(
This was my first-ever tooth powder, and I was a little worried that my teeth would feel less clean after using it. But they feel great! The tooth powder isn't as foamy as a toothpaste, but I feel like it's cleaning well.
Great product. My teeth have never felt so good
