Toothpowder is a great alternative to using a Toothpaste.

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.
