Alkaline Mineralizing Toothpowder or Toothpaste Recipe + Research on Toxic Toothpaste Ingredients

Updated: Jul 24, 2021

An Alkaline, Sustainable and Natural solution, Full of Minerals, to Support the Natural pH of the Mouth, Soothe the Gums and Protect the Enamel. It can be made in dry form (Toothpowder) or as a normal Toothpaste by adding a key ingredient.

💃Go straight to the recipe!


Food is not just what we eat, but everything our body consumes. Most of the common industrial toothpastes contain toxic ingredients that add up in our body and studies have shown that they can create plenty of health problems, which could be avoided by making a better, more natural choice.


In my case, I noticed that from the moment I started using Toothpowder I never got Mouth Ulcers again (in the past I would get often for no obvious reasons). I also love the flavour, the texture, everything, plus it's good for me.


Below, some research based data on industrial toothpastes and a recipe for a Natural Toothpowder (Toothpaste in the form of powder).


The Research

Below I list the most common toxic ingredients in the toothpastes.

Triclosan: Connected to concerns over antibiotic resistance and endocrine disruption. Can potentially activate a wide range of health problems, including breast, ovarian, prostate, and testicular cancer, preterm and low birth weight infants, precocious adolescence in ladies, and undescended testicles in boys.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS): Altering your taste by breaking up the phospholipids on your tongue. Also it´s not good for the environment as it can have poisonous effects to marine life, consisting of fish, bugs, and crustaceans.

Sweetening agents: Often chemical sweeteners are added, which some of them can´t be processed from the human body and can create various symptoms in some people, such as headaches, dizziness, etc.

Fluoride: Probably the number 1 most famous toxic ingredient, present in the majority of industrial toothpastes. Over 400 studies have found that Fluoride is a Neurotoxin, can be very harmful for the brain (especially for kids).

Propylene Glycol: Mineral oil that, in the industrial grade, is used in antifreeze, paints, enamels, and plane de-icers.

Diethanolamine (DEA): Known as a hormone disrupter.

Microbeads: Plastic pellets that go down your drain, through the filters at the majority of wastewater treatment plants, and out into the environment. Plastic microbeads absorb contaminants from the water and are eaten by a wide variety of marine life and in the end, by human beings.


What to buy


If you still want to buy your toothpaste, there are some good options in the market. The choice for buying one is simple, check the ingredients and make sure you understand everything. The natural toothpastes usually contain ingredients such as Clay, Aloe, Essential Oils, Sea Salt, Baking Soda, Xylitol, Stevia, Calcium etc. Also, they never contain Fluoride.


Toothpowder Recipe

All the ingredients in this Toothpowder support the protection of the gums and the enamel, balance the PH of the mouth which supports the saliva production and help your teeth stay strong and white by providing them with the minerals they need.

Ingredients:


- 3 parts Bentonite Clay or Kaolin Clay Powder (available in pharmacies, beauty or organic stores)

- 3 parts Calcium Carbonate Powder (available in pharmacies)

- Recommended Essential Oils: Tea Tree, Peppermint, Spearmint (optional) *

- 1 part Himalayan Pink Salt (optional, has minerals and it´s antibacterial, don´t use common table salt)


- More optional ingredients for flavour: 1 part Xylitol powder to add sweetness, ½-1 part Cloves Powder, 1-2 parts Dry Peppermint or Spearmint in thin powder


Process:

1. Mix all the Toothpowder ingredients (add any of the optional ingredients as well) and save in a glass jar with a lid.

2. Everytime you want to use the Toothpowder, wet your toothbrush and either deep it in the Toothpowder or use a spoon to put some of it on the toothbrush and then, brush your teeth.


* If you have other Essential Oils that you want to use and you are not sure if they are suitable or safe, ask me below in the comments section.


Alternatives:


The base of this recipe is the Clay and the Calcium Carbonate. You can "play" with these two ingredients, add more or less of each and get different flavour and colour.


Toothpaste Recipe


You may take the Aloe Vera Gel directly from an Aloe plant or, buy a gel with 99% or 99.9% of Aloe content.


Ingredients:


- 6 tablespoons of Toothpowder from the recipe above

- A mix of 9 tablespoons of Pure Aloe Vera Gel and 12-14 drops of essential oil (Recommended: Tea Tree, Peppermint or Spearmint Oil)


Process:


Take your Toothpowder and start adding the mix of Aloe and Essential Oils, until you get the desired consistency.


Do not forget the extra drops of essential oil with the Aloe. That's because all essential oils are natural antibacterials, so they really help with the shelf life.


Store in a jar with lid and use a teaspoon to add some on your toothbrush. It can be stored in your bathroom, no need for fridge.
