Organic Tooth Powder & bamboo Brush to improve your oral care


One of the first things we all do after waking up in the morning is do the mundane task of brushing our teeth. Not only is it important for maintaining the physical appearance but it is important to take care of your oral care for health and hygiene. While tooth powders were once prominent in the past, they seem to be making a comeback in recent times for many reasons we will be discussing below. But how does a tooth powder compare to the conventionally used toothpaste? Read on to find out.

What are Tooth Powders?

Tooth powder also known as dentifrice – a French word, was first marketed in Britain during the 18th century. Earlier, it was usually made with three key ingredients which were:

  1. A mild abrasive, such as finely powdered chalk,
  2. A detergent or foaming agent
  3. A flavoring or sweetening agent, such as sugar or artificial sweetener, peppermint, cinnamon, or clove.

Tooth powders also included binding agents and colorants and were usually applied with a dampened brush, but traditionally many used their finger or even a small stick to brush their teeth.

Over the years, tooth powders have evolved to be made with organic herbal ingredients that are perfectly safe to use without any harsh chemicals or preservatives.

A Brief History of Tooth Powders

Tooth powder was historically used among the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans to clean and whiten their teeth. It was believed that these powders fix loose teeth, strengthen gums, and aid with toothaches. They made these tooth powders from powdering bones, hoofs, and horns of certain animals and eggshells. These ingredients were made into a fine powder and there were even some versions that contained honey, salt, and other flavoring ingredients.

On the other side of the world, the Chinese added ginseng, exotic herbs, and salt to help improve taste and cleaning properties. It was around 1000 AD when the Persians warned others of the dangers of using overly abrasive tooth powders that could damage teeth and instead suggested creating tooth powders using gentler and mild ingredients.

During the 1800s, tooth powders were the most popular way to polish teeth which were similar to brushing your teeth with baking soda. Interestingly enough, before the addition of baking soda to tooth powders in England, people would grind toast and use the powder to scrub their teeth.

Thanks to years of scientific research, we have evolved from using abrasive ingredients on our teeth and have developed more nuanced effective ways of improving oral hygiene.
