SODIUM BICARBONATE (Baking Soda)
Most commonly referred to as "baking soda," sodium bicarbonate is a soft mineral that has been long appreciated for its ability to both clean and whiten teeth. It can lift surface stains, but is very gentle on your pearly whites. The impressively high alkalinity of sodium bicarbonate also helps battle acidity in the mouth which can cause tooth decay.
Tartaric acid is an antioxidant that shows up in edible plants all over the world: in grapes, bananas, pineapples and tamarind, to name a few. It is commonly used in conventional toothpastes and foods as a leavening agent.
DICALCIUM PHOSPHATE DIHYDRATE
As indicated by its scientific name, dicalcium phosphate dihydtate is full of calcium, which is necessary to the survival of healthy bones and teeth. It is an excellent tooth polish, and also helps mitigate tartar, thereby reducing the chances of tooth decay!
Magnesium Carbonate is similar to sodium bicarbonate in its ability to help remove stains and plaque. It, too, is a gentle abrasive - but just enough to scrub-a-dub-dub the icky debris from your teeth, while going easy on the enamel.
Hydrated silica is found all throughout nature, especially in beautiful crystals such as the mystical opal and quartz. In oral hygiene products, hydrated silica is utilized most for its ability to gently scuff away plaque.
The benefits of essential oils go far beyond just a tingly, refreshing taste. Spearmint oil also has major anti-bacterial properties that can help create a healthy environment in the mouth. Also, if there is any discomfort in your mouth (tongue, gums, or inside the cheeks or lips), spearmint oil is known to help treat pain.
Peppermint oil contributes to the bright and lively flavor profile of our amazing smile tooth powder, but is also highly functional for oral health. The antimicrobial qualities of peppermint oil can truly freshen your breath naturally. Peppermint oil has also been shown to help fight cavities. Oh, and if you're experiencing any soreness in your gums, peppermint might just have you covered there too.
Sea salt is often considered a super basic element and overlooked for its trace amounts of rich minerals including zinc, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and more! Sea salt can help break down plaque, has whitening characteristics, and is an incredible cleanser.
Anise oil, derived from the perennial herb pimpinella anisum, has the distinct yet mild taste of sweet licorice. Besides being a sought-after flavor, anise oil is also an antiseptic and has been determined to be beneficial to oral health. It also encourages the remineralization necessary for a healthy mouth.
MYRRH RESIN EXTRACT
The sap of the commiphora myrrha tree produces myrrh resin, which can be found in both Africa and the Middle East. It is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, boasting massive benefits when used in oral hygiene, such as reduction of inflammation, prevention of mouth ulcers, and treatment of gingivitis. Makes your breath smell great, too!
SODIUM METHYL COCOYL TAURATE
Don't let the long, hard-to-pronounce name scare you! Sodium methyl cocoyl taurate is simply a surfactant derived from coconuts, and acts as a natural foaming agent for that super satisfying brusha-brusha sensation, without any messy stains.
The addition of zinc gluconate to this formula is due to its manifold oral benefits. It is known to cut down on the amount of plaque in your mouth, while inhibiting calculus formation. It has been shown to be effective in the reduction of halitosis and gingivitis as well, to help keep your mouth bright and fresh!
Frankincense is a fragrant, hardened sap from the Boswellia genus trees of Africa and Arabia. It is well-known for its ceremonial uses as an incense (typically burnt along with myrrh), so it may surprise you to learn that frankincense is potentially quite effective in fighting cavities, as well!
Monk fruit, also known as luo han guo, has been long used in traditional Chinese medicine, and is a phenomenon in the world of natural sweeteners. Even with its delicious sweetness, monk fruit has not been shown to contribute to tooth decay, making it the perfect sweetener for a yummy toothpaste.
ETHYL LAUROYL ARGINATE
Based on natural raw materials, ethyl lauroyl arginate boasts wide antimicrobial properties and is known to be effective in the management of gum disease.
STREPTOCOCCUS SALIVARIUS (ORAL PROBIOTIC)
Despite its formidable name, streptococcus salivarius is a super friendly, health forming bacteria. In fact, following childbirth, this “good bacteria” naturally collects in the mouth and respiratory system of newborn babies, protecting them from harmful bacteria. In dental products, it does essentially the same thing making streptococcus salivarius an oral probiotic! Just don't try saying it 5 times fast...
