Organic Ingredients: Cocos nucifera (Virgin Coconut), Sodium Bicarbonate, Saponified Olea europaea (Olive) Oil, Boswellia carterii (Frankincense), Commiphora myrrha (Myrrh), Mentha peperita (Peppermint), Thymus vulgaris linalool (Sweet Thyme), Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree), and MSM.
Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera) – This protective carrier oil balances oral ecology, soothes the oral tissue and gently removes bacteria that cause bad breath.
Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) – Teeth thrive when they are bathed in a sea of sweet saliva, and baking soda buffers and neutralises food acids. In addition to being an effective cleaning polish, baking soda is gentle. It has significantly lower abrasiveness than the cleaning agents of chalk and silica that are used in commercial toothpastes, and the baking soda’s natural alkalinity neutralises bacterial acidity.
Saponified Olive Oil (Olea europaea) – Our organic saponified olive oil captures all of the nourishing, moisturising properties of olive oil while enhancing the oil’s ability to help remove plaque from the teeth. Saponification is a chemical reaction that occurs when the oil is treated with a highly alkaline solution.
Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia carteri) – Our Frankincense comes from Somalia where they grow the highest quality of gum trees. This precious essence has been used to support clean teeth and fresh breath for thousands of years in Middle Eastern areas. It is common for Arabian people to chew the resin in their mouths. They know of its ability to eliminate bad breath causing bacteria and assist with removing plaque.
Myrrh Essential Oil (Commiphora myrrha) – Myrrh is one of the oldest botanicals in the world. The Egyptians used large amounts of myrrh in rituals, remedies, cosmetics, and embalming. Myrrh’s oral history includes it being used as a soothing, calming essence for the mouth.
Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha piperita) – Peppermint’s cool breezy taste gives you long-lasting fresh breath. Our peppermint is a genuine distillation of the fresh leaves and comes from a fourth-generation family of distillers in France. The peppermint in commercial toothpaste is artificial menthol and only offers flavour. Real peppermint is a potent and pleasant friend for oral care. It also inhibits the bacteria that cause bad breath.
Tea Tree Essential Oil (Malaleuca alternifolia) – Traditional tea tree is a potent aromatic all-purpose essential oil. Potent plant compounds of cineole and propanol work to refresh the mouth, prevent tartar build-up, and banish the bacteria that cause bad breath. Steam distilled in Australia, Tea Tree oil evokes a super-clean, piney-clean aroma.
Sweet Thyme Essential Oil (Thymus officinalis linalool) – This is a rare variety of the thyme species. It is a gentle toner that balances oral secretions. Thyme Linalool is also a potent botanical biotic that banishes bad breath bacteria.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – MSM is a biologically-active organic compound that is a source of sulfur. This naturally occurring sulfur is found in nature and all living organisms. It is a critical nutrient for the human body.
