Toothpowder is a great alternative to using a Toothpaste.

Toothpowder harnesses the fantastic qualities of NZ kelp and sweet natural spices to create this great toothpowder - a natural alternative to whitening toothpaste, with the added benefit of re-mineralising properties to help rebuild your teeth and reduce sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. This variety has been very popular with men and makes an ideal gift. 

The Toothpowder helps your mouth to find its balance again by supporting its natural protection and cleaning processes. Replenishing lost minerals in the teeth and maintaining healthy gums. The Mineralising Toothpowder has a distinct aniseed flavour, with a more subtle underlying sweetness of cinnamon, cardamom and cloves.  After using, your teeth will look and feel incredibly clean and polished throughout the day.

Why this toothpowder:

  • Zero Waste
  • 100% Natural Oral Health
  • Non-foaming
  • No chemicals have been added
  • No artificial sweeteners
  • Made in New Zealand
  • Vegan


  • NZ Kelp (Is rich in available minerals essential for enamel formation and will break down dental plaque and tartar helping rebuild teeth. Clients have reported that their hot and cold sensitivity has been reduced with regular use)
  • Baking Soda  (Is a very mild abrasive, helping in cleaning and neutralizing acids in plaque, while freshening breath and whitening your teeth)
  • Xylitol (Is a plant derived sweetener which inhibits bacteria responsible for plaque build up and tooth decay)
  • Calcium Carbonate (Gives the powder a smooth texture, acts as a mild abrasive and introduces calcium to the body and saliva, helping rebuild your teeth)
  • Cloves, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Star Anise (Are all antibacterial and give you a delicious taste and freshness)

How to use: Lightly wet the head of a soft toothbrush, dip it in the powder covering bristles generously, take your time brushing, then rinse and floss. 

Size: 80g

A bit about Toothpaste/powder:
Maxwell & McIntyre Ltd use no Harmful Chemicals or Foaming Agents in their products. 

Most commercial toothpaste contain harmful and toxic ingredients, such as titanium dioxide, FDC, Blue Dye, sodium lauryl sulfate, and sodium fluoride. These ingredients can also be found in toothpaste that is labelled “all natural”.

These chemicals are not only harmful to your delicate tooth enamel, they also affect your overall health! Glycerin is another ingredient to be cautious of as it can inhibit remineralization of teeth.
Conventional toothpaste such as Colgate Total contains an antibacterial chemical called triclosan, which has been linked to concerns over antibiotic resistance and endocrine disruption.

Many “NATURAL” toothpastes contain surfactants like sodium laurel sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate (SLS), or sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES). Surfactants are chemicals responsible for the foaming action of the toothpaste, but they also interfere with the functioning of your taste buds by breaking up the phospholipids on your tongue.
This enhances bitter tastes and is thought to be the reason why everything tastes so bad right after you’ve brushed your teeth. This may also be part of why coconut oil works so well for oral hygiene, as it helps maintain a more natural balance of lipids on your tongue, while still having potent antibacterial properties.

Eco criteria

Eco Product selection criteria

When we source our products, we try to find as many environmental benefits as possible. We source eco products that do not cause any unnecessary harm to our environment.
This particular product matches the following critera (click on each to see other products matching the same):

All of our eco criteria explained

Made from recycled materials or is recyclable

Recycling has many benefits like saving energy, conserving raw materials, reducing the amount of stuff that goes to landfills and it's also saving you money. 2.5 Million Tons of waste go to landfills each year (8kg per person/week) 3/4 could be saved by re-using, recycling and composting. Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle!

Contain no toxins or harmful ingredients

Many people suffer from allergies, asthma and other sensitivities because of products that contain toxins or otherwise harmful ingredients. Most of these products are used inside the house eg. for cleaning, as body care products, as a detergent and so on. We try to source products that are mostly natural and do not cause any harm to you or your environment.

Be compostable or biodegradable

What is the difference? Compostable materials provide the earth with nutrients once it has completely broken down. Biodegradable materials refer to the ability of breaking down and return to nature. Buying products that are compostable and/or biodegradable will help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Fairly traded or Fairtrade certified

At the beginning of most production chains are the workers and farmers (producers). Sadly they do not always get a fair share of the benefits of the trade. You as a consumer can now make a conscious decision about buying fairtrade or fairly traded products and putting this right.

Reduce the dependence on oil

Many household items are made of plastic. Because plastic doesn't react chemically with most other substances, it doesn't break down or decay. Therefore, plastic poses a significant environmental problem as it hangs around in the environment for a very long time. We stock many products that use little or no plastic in order to reduce our dependence on oil.

Cruelty free

The testing on animals for cosmetic and consumer products needs to stop. Whether you decide to buy only vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty-free products into your life, it's definitely worth to go animal friendly. The products we source are cruelty-free and do not harm or kill animals in their making.

Nice taste, teeth feel really clean. Too early to tell if teeth sensitivity sorted but so far so good

Verified Purchaser

Love it!

Best tooth powder I have used so far.


Quite different but good

I like this powder but it takes a bit of getting used to. I don't mind that it doesn't foam but I'm not so keen on the little bits it leaves behind and you really need to rinse at the end even tho it recommends little rinsing. I use this at night mostly. Nice taste as it is not too strong. I feel good about not using a tube too and will re-use the jar later

Its alright

This powder is okay, but I don't think it will help with long term tooth care just on its own. After a week of using this, my hubby believes he has tarter built up. I don't mind it, but I'm not a fan of any licorice taste, so I knew when I ordered it the ainse seed would put me off. I still use it occasionally, but personally I like a nice foamy toothwash that makes your mouth tingle. This product makes your teeth feel clean, but there is no foam or froth.

It has been weird using this as it is not much like traditional toothpaste. The taste is very strong and I wish there was a mint one instead. There seems to be what feels like bits of wood in there which feels weird in your teeth. Not sure how I feel about this product just yet. Well made though and I think my dislikes are purely personal.
