The Apothecary Tooth Powder makes a great vegan alternative to our delicious natural Toothpaste (which contains a tiny quantity of raw Cape beeswax). It's also a solution for those who dislike the texture of natural toothpaste, or who just want to to give something different a try! And perfect for travelling as they weigh next to nothing.
The powder is based on non-GM xylitol (a well-known dental hero and enemy of the bacteria that cause tooth decay), detoxifying clay, traditional dentifrice baking soda, a hefty dose of calcium, magnesium and an array of other minerals and trace elements essential for remineralisation of teeth and general tooth health and repair.
The powder is further boosted by the colourful inclusion of spirulina and hemp powders. Spirulina is a true superfood which is bursting with calcium (27 times the concentration as in milk), is an effective antioxidant, and very good at binding to, and hence removing during brushing, toxins such as heavy metals. It's effectiveness as an antioxidant, particularly in the mouth, was confirmed by this study published in Nutrition and Cancer, where chewers of paan tobacco with oral cancer supplemented with spirulina. 45% saw a complete regression of lesions as opposed to only 7% who did not use spirulina. Hemp powder is a potent superfood, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory which helps to soothe and heal the delicate membranes of mouth and gums.
