But don’t worry—it doesn’t TASTE like dirt…

This non-abrasive toothpowder gently polishes and refreshes your teeth while also helping to clean the teeth. Our premium formula helps cleanse the tissues from things like oils, toxins and impurities found on the surface of your mouth.

Since November 2016






*When making the switch to Dirty Mouth Toothpowder, we suggest brushing with the regular formula for one month (to help clean and freshen the mouth) before using the Black formula.

Three sizes available:

  • Mini (60 brushings)
  • 1 oz. (200+ brushings)
  • 4 oz. family size (800+ brushings)
This is 100% concentrated and only a very small amount is needed. Just a dip of the top 1/2 of your brush needs dusted with toothpowder.
  • Peppermint
  • Sweet Peppermint (Sugar-free, sweetened with monk fruit, Mini, 1 oz.)
  • Spearmint
  • Sweet Spearmint (Sugar-free, sweetened with monk fruit, Mini, 1 oz.)
  • Cinnamon
  • Sweet Bubblegum (Kid Favorite! Sugar-free, sweetened with monk fruit, Mini and 1 oz.)
  • Kids Cool Orange- flavored with Sweet Orange and Spearmint Essential Oils
  • Black Toothpowder with Activated Charcoal (in Peppermint and Spearmint) whitening formula

We’re very excited about our Dirty Mouth Toothpowder with Activated Charcoal (whitening formula). Because when you brush with this formula, you not only get all the benefits of our original Dirty Mouth Toothpowder, but you also get the added benefit of activated charcoal, which can help remove discolorations, stains (coffee, tobacco, tea, etc.) and debris and leave the surface area cleaner and whiter looking.

So now you’re not only getting healthier looking teeth and fresher mouth—but a whiter, brighter smile as well!

What is Monk Fruit?

Monk fruit contains natural sugars, mainly fructose and glucose.

However, unlike most fruits, the natural sugars in monk fruit are not the main compounds responsible for its sweetness.

Monk fruit extract actually gets its intense sweetness from unique antioxidants called mogrosides.

During processing, mogrosides are separated from the fresh-pressed juice of the monk fruit. Therefore, monk fruit sweetener does not contain fructose or glucose. 

Depending on the amount of mogrosides present, monk fruit extract can provide a level of sweetness around 100–250 times greater than table sugar.

Wet your toothbrush. Shake off excess water.  Dip the tip (1/2-2/3 of the brush) in the toothpowder. Brush for 2 minutes. Spit, rinse and SMILE!

Alternative directions:

  • Scoop a small amount into your palm (or small bowl) and dip your brush into the powder. Brush for 2 minutes and SMILE!
  • Scoop a small amount of toothpowder onto your brush. Brush for 2 minutes and SMILE!

Tips for kids:

  • First trick: show them how the powder is white in the container. Let them watch you brush your teeth. When you spit- show them how it's BROWN and say "Wow, look how dirty my teeth were! Let's see how dirty your teeth are!" (Also great to get them to spit).
  • Second trick: if they won't try/use the powder, you can apply the toothpowder first (small dusting) to their brush and put their toothpaste over it. Decrease the amount of paste you apply every few days until you don't need any.

**Can follow with Boost Gum Serum to help clean gum tissue.

**Our toothpowder is safe to swallow for kids and adults, but Primal Life Organics does recommend spitting your toothpowder out because clays absorbs toxins from the surface of your teeth and gums




“Stronger and Whiter Than Ever…”


I was equally impressed with the Toothpowder and Gum Serum. The last time I was at the dentist my dentist could not believe how good my teeth/gums looked, and even asked me if I went somewhere else to bleach them because they were looking so white.  When I said no she asked me a lot of questions about the product I was using – to which I happily told her. My teeth are stronger and whiter than ever." ~Kimberly

INGREDIENTS: Bentonite Clay**, Activated Charcoal** (Black formula ONLY), White Kaolin Clay, Baking Soda (aluminum free)**, French Green Clay**, organic Essential Oil of choice. **Food Grade

Bentonite Clay is nontoxic and rich in vital minerals that are very beneficial for our teeth and gums – like calcium and potassium. It is a very mild abrasive clay that gently scrubs and beautifully polishes the teeth. It works as an astringent by helping to remove tartar and clean the gums.

White Kaolin Clay is very rich in aluminum and is high in calcium, silica, zinc and magnesium. It helps to whiten and polish the teeth.

Baking soda (aluminum free) is alkaline with a pH of 8.1 and will neutralize the acids in the mouth and. Baking soda acts as a very mild abrasive for cleansing and polishing the teeth, , removes odors and can help freshen the breath.

French Green Clay (also known as Illite Clay or Sea Clay) is very absorbent, and helps cleanse the tissues from things like oils, toxins and impurities found on the surface.  Mined from bedrock quarries in France, it is sun-dried, completely natural, unscented, and fragrance free. French Green Clay is a bio-mineral, and contains decomposed plant matter as well as many trace minerals, including: silica, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, selenium, cobalt, manganese, phosphorous, silicon, micro-algae, kelp, and phyto-nutrients.

Organic Essential Oils are used to freshen the mouth and make you forget that you are brushing your teeth with Dirt! 

"My hygienist RAVED about how healthy my gums were!"

I went to the dentist for my cleaning today and my hygienist RAVED about how healthy my gums were and how great my teeth looked. She was so impressed she had me tell the dentist what I was using! I would love if you could send her a sample. I am so glad I have gone Paleo with both my diet and skincare!! I hope to convert to No Poo over the summer when a daily pony is acceptable!  Thank you for my great dental visit today!  ~Kim



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.

Is it safe during pregnancy

Yes, the toothpowder is safe during pregnancy.  We recommend avoiding anise only because it could cause uterine contractions.

Is it safe during breast feeding

Yes, it is safe during breast feeding

Is it safe to swallow

Yes, while we recommend spitting (because the clay can absorb toxins from the surface of you gum tissue and teeth) the ingredients are safe to swallow. 

Is it safe for kids

Yes, it is safe for kids. It was created for a 2 year old 

I hear you should not detox during pregnancy

That is true, and while clay can detox the body of toxins, the toothpowder will be used in the mouth and only absorb toxins from the surface of the teeth and gums in the mouth as it cleans. 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?

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. 

How long does it last?

The MINI (0.25 oz.) will last one month used twice a day by one person.  The 1 oz. size (28 g) will last 3-4 months used twice a day by one person.

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

Safe for braces/dental work?


Don't our teeth need fluoride?

No, fluoride can be toxic. 

Is the tooth powder gluten free?

Yes it is gluten free

How long will it take to see a difference in whiteness?

That depends on the condition of the teeth, diet and general health. Many notice a difference right away. 

Can it be used if I have a receding gum line and exposed root?

Since the toothpowder does not contain harsh chemicals and leaves your natural and protective bacteria in place, yes it is safe to use with a receding gum line and exposed root.

Is this SLS free? (sodium lauryl sulfate)

Yes, this is free from all toxins and chemicals. SLS is not used in any of our products.

Better Than I Anticipated

I first heard of PrimalLife's Toothpowder when my sister recommended it me. A friend of hers was having her try it and after a month she was really impressed with the results. She brought it to my attention because I was having an issue with an obvious case of tartar. My sister said she had some too but it had been diminished by using the toothpowder. I decided to cautiously try it. Overall it did diminish my tartar on the front and backs of my teeth. They seem whiter as result. The tartar is still there but barely. I noticed my breath seemed to stay fresher longer and I didn't have a film on my teeth like I normally would when using regular toothpaste. It was awkward to use the powder at first and the taste is something to get used to but I'm glad I tried this out. It's a little pricier than traditional methods so that may turn some away but if you want a way to better your teeth between dental cleans this is well worth trying for awhile!

Teeth feel clean!

I primarily bought the orange flavored tooth powder for my son. His dentist said he has soft enamel, so I'm hoping this tooth powder will help strengthen and rebuild it. His teeth are already noticeably whiter! We've been sharing the tooth powder and my teeth feel clean and my mouth feels fresh, as well. Definately plan to re-order and try other flavors.

Better than I thought

I am enjoying the Peppermint Flavored Natural Toothpowder I ordered. The only thing that took some getting used to was the taste. I like how my teeth look and feel after brushing. Will definitely be continuing with this product and would recommend it to others.
