Organic Minted Tooth Salt
How to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Everybody should brush their teeth twice a day, right? It’s a common practice instilled in us as children. But do you know what’s REALLY in your toothpaste? You really do not want to know. We are tackling oral care.
Organic totally of course and Made in the USA. Sustainably. No harmful chemicals.
Clean up your oral care routine with our easy-to-use Tooth Salt! Just sprinkle onto a wet toothbrush and brush as normal. Your teeth and gums will love you and it's sustainable. No more plastic tubes with who knows what!
Manufacturers add SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate ) to toothpaste is not to help make your pearly whites whiter. It’s to make it easier to fill the tube at the factory and to make the product more consistent when being squeezed out. SLS is a good emulsifier, lubricant, and foaming agent, but you might want to think twice before putting it in your mouth every day.
While commercial toothpaste may be amazing for combating tooth decay (that’s what they claim in their ads anyway), commercial products often offer little for the long-term health of your gums. In fact, SLS actually dramatically increases skin and gum permeability. That means that if you have a bit of gum disease and brush every day with commercial toothpaste, there is a possibility that you will have gum disease issues for the rest of your life.
So we now want you to be aware of people with their teeth in place who used table salt for dentifrice (toothpaste substitute). One woman told us she had started the practice during the Depression when they could not afford the price of commercial tooth care products. “It worked so well I just kept on going!” she told us. At 88 she still had a great set of (her own) teeth!
The thing is, table salt alone just does not whiten teeth and freshen breath effectively. So we went back to those interviews. By far the majority of non-toothpaste users swore by baking soda. None of those interviewed were aware of the potential for heavy metal contamination in some brands of baking soda, but all claimed good results. Note: There is a possibility of heavy metal contamination and even arsenic in some commonly sold baking sodas. So we came up with our healthy minty oral care and you will love this formulation.
