This coconut oil-based toothpaste is combined with activated charcoal (made from coconut husks) which helps to bind to dirt, stains and bacteria on your teeth and gums while leaving a protective oily layer. Both whitening and protecting your teeth. The taste is cooling and refreshing peppermint with a slightly salty touch (salt is great for gum health!).
When making the change to natural products which don’t contain chemicals, it is important to remove preconceived expectations. This toothpaste is an oil base and will not foam. If making the change straight from commercial brands, this could seem a little strange and hard to get used to. We are led to believe that we need to purchase chemical ridden foaming paste in a plastic tube in order to keep our teeth and gums in good health. Although, it is actually the action of softly brushing our teeth and gums and flossing that prevents infection and disease. We also love coconut oil pulling (check our blog for more information!)
