IS ALUMINUM CLAY DANGEROUS?
No. Myths about clay and the elements that make up a clay molecule are rampant. One deals with aluminum. Clay is a super stable compound. All of the elements that make up clay are bound together and act as a whole. Aluminum silicate is a crystal compound, and cannot be utilized by the body. Aluminum in this form is completely inert. As long as the aluminum is bound in this form, it poses no health risk. The aluminum in clay is never in an isolated form, and is not absorbed into the body. Processed aluminums or free aluminum are positively charged toxins and are the ones absorbed into the body that cause harm.

The amount used will not be enough to cause any problems, of course we recommend spitting and not swallowing the toothpowder.
How do you use it?
It can be used with wet or dry toothbrush. The toothpowder is 100% concentrated and only a small amount is needed. Just wet your brush, dip the tip (1/2-2/3) of the brush in the powder and brush as usual. Spit and rinse.

Can I still oil pull?
Yes, feel free to oil pull, but please understand the point of oil pulling is to remove toxins. Oil pulling takes 20 minutes of swishing oil inside your mouth. The Dirty Mouth® Toothpowder also absorbs toxins from the surfaces of gums and teeth in your mouth-. Better yet, you brush your teeth for 2 minutes to help clean your mouth. You are very welcome!
Does this replace my toothpaste?
YES!! Brush with this instead of your toothpaste!!
How does this work? How does this replace minerals?
Dirty Mouth Toothpowder contains the exact minerals your teeth need to stay strong. Your teeth lose minerals every day. Regular toothpaste does not contain any minerals- while it may clean your teeth (with toxic ingredients)- it will never strengthen them. In fact, most contain glycerin which is believed to leave a coating on your teeth and this will prevent any minerals you obtain from your diet, from entering your teeth. With Dirty Mouth Toothpowder, you are brushing those minerals back into your teeth!
Can you show me the research/scientific evidence behind using clay?
Weston Price has a ton of research on this topic.
Will dipping the brush in the toothpowder contaminate the powder?
No, it should not. When you dip the brush, the powder attaches to the wet bristles. The remaining powder is left dry. If this unsettles you, you may also scoop a small amount into your palm and dip your brush into the powder on your palm. Also, there are great ultraviolet light toothbrush sanitizers available that will also keep your toothbrush clean. We recommend replacing your toothbrush every month for maximum effectiveness of the bristles and cleanliness.
Is it abrasive? Will it damage my enamel?
The powder is ultra-fine and non-abrasive- and when it blends with the water on your damp brush, it becomes a paste. It will not damage your enamel
