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. Bentonite Clay has been used for decades as a treatment for numerous health conditions and acts as a detoxifying agent to help fight gum disease by strengthening the body's natural immunity. It works as an astringent by helping to remove tartar and clean the gums.
White Kaolin Clay 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 promote tooth remineralization making them cavity-resistant. Baking soda acts as a very mild abrasive for cleansing and polishing the teeth, kills germs, removes odors and can help freshen the breath.
French Green Clay (also known as Illite Clay or Sea Clay) is very absorbent, and literally "drinks" oils, toxic substances, and impurities from the tissues. 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. French Green Clay also has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, which may be helpful with some periodontal conditions.
Organic Essential Oils are used for their antiseptic qualities and 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. They did the "pocket test" where they use the little measuring stick to see about receding gums and nearly every one of my numbers went DOWN from my last visit 4 months ago! 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
