What is HYDROXYAPATITE?
"Hydroxyapatite is one of the most studied biomaterials in the medical field for its proven biocompatibility and for being the main constituent of the mineral part of bone and teeth. In terms of restorative and preventive dentistry, nano-hydroxyapatite has significant remineralizing effects on initial enamel lesions, certainly superior to conventional fluoride, and good results on the sensitivity of the teeth." (Ann Stomano, 2014)

We love how dedicated our customers are to researching ingredients. We wish everyone looked at their toothpaste in such detail. Here are a couple of answers to some techy questions we have been asked.
Is Your Hydroxyapatite Vegan?
Yes, all our products are 100% Vegan. Although our bones and eggshells have a lot of Hydroxyapatite, this is not our source. For those into chemistry, it is made by mixing CaHPO4 with CA (OH)2 and then dissolving it in alcohol and the remainder is Hydroxyapatite. It is then milled to the correct size.
What Shape are the Hydroxyapatite Particles?
This question comes about as a result of a paper that questions the safety of needle shaped Hydroxyapatite. Our Hydroxyapatite is not needle shaped. Below is the shape of the particles as seen under a microscope.
Sorbitol (Relieves Dry Mouth & For Taste), Calcium Carbonate (Polishes Teeth & Removes Plaque), Tapioca (Food Based Thickener), Aqua (What The Suits Make Us Call Water), Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda For Teeth Whitening & Polishing), Hydroxyapatite (Remineralising Agent), Xylitol (Natural Sweetener), Sodium N-Laurylsarcosinate (Coconut Based Cleanser), Natural Mint Flavour, Natural Lime Flavour, Xanthan Gum (Food Grade Thickener), Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf Extract (Natural Sweetener).
