Natural toothpaste is made with natural spring water, organic stevia leaf, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, baking soda, Himalayan rock salt and bentonite clay.

When it comes to toothpaste the same rule applies to anything you put into your body and that is if you cannot pronounce the ingredients do not use them!

Most toothpastes have a glycerine base that coats the tooth enamel, keeping it from absorbing the minerals that it needs to be healthy. Enamel is made up of ninety six percent minerals and that is the reason it is so hard. Healthy enamel is actively involved in a variety of chemical reactions SAM_4156including a de-mineralization and re-mineralization exchange processes with the saliva. Toothpaste made with gycerine stops this process and leaves the enamel looking brown and dingy. The toothpaste industries answer to the de-mineralization problem was to start using chemicals like fluoride that actually stripped the surface of the enamel. This leaves the enamel looking white and smooth but actually it is thinner and sicklier than ever. It may take as many as 30 brushes to remove the glycerine from your teeth.

Bentonite clay toothpaste is based on the concept that we can’t just scrape our teeth clean with harsh chemicals like Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Triclosan, Diethanolomine, Isopropyl Alcohol etc, many of which are carcinogenic and present in most toothpaste

Bentonite clay toothpaste neutralizes acid, removes bacteria, leaches out infection & re-mineralizes teeth by adding back needed minerals that promote healthy teeth and gums.

When switching from commercial to natural toothpaste, it is advisable to alternate between the two for the first month as you may find you have a sensitive mouth whilst your teeth and gums strengthen up.

You can buy Natural Toothpaste from Nerina who sells it at the Green Market from her shop next to Jordan’s Bar on Maenam Walking Street
