Remineralising Natural Toothpaste
In the 1950’s black and white TV was cool and so was Fluoride, but things have moved on and so should toothpaste. We use Calcium Hydroxyapatite instead of fluoride. It helps remineralize and repair the teeth but without the (we don’t want to be negative)…controversy. We also don’t use SLS, Titanium Dioxide or Glycerin. This version has no BiCarb Soda to take care of sensitive gums.
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.
Aqua (What The Suits Make Us Call Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Calcium Carbonate (Polishes Teeth & Removes Plaque), Caprylic Capric Triglyceride (Coconut Derived Emollient), Xylitol (Natural Sweetener), Hydroxyapatite (Remineralising Agent), Sclerotium Gum (Emulsifier), Natural Flavour, Sodium N-lauroylsarcosinate (Coconut Based Cleanser), Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon) Leaf Oil, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf Extract (Natural Sweetener).
