Pure Soap Tooth Cleanser with xylitol

orange + mint  2 oz $14.00 *****4 oz refill $26.00

 

Get wonderfully clean teeth with our tooth soap blend made from organic oils of extra virgin olive and sunflower. We add birch xylitol for a bit of sweetness and to encourage healthy, strong teeth and fresh-flavored pure essential oils. Research has shown that teeth cleaned with pure soap are far cleaner than those brushed with commercial pastes (even the natural ones) which contain a large amount of glycerin that coats teeth and interferes with the re-mineralization from the food you eat. The one ounce bottle lasts a very long time so it's economical, too. You'll be amazed at the results!

See below for research about the benefits of xylitol, soap for teeth and the problems with traditional toothpastes.

Use this soap to:

  • super clean your teeth
  • allow for healthy remineralization to strengthen your teeth
  • freshen your breath

For best results:

  • Wet toothbrush and use one-half to one pump of Tooth Cleanser to brush teeth. Rinse your mouth a few times with plain water or sea salt water. Do not gargle with the Tooth Cleanser and avoid getting product in the back of your throat (it doesn't taste good there). Use a bit of baking soda on a wet brush weekly to brighten teeth and remove stains.

Made with:

  • saponified oils of organic extra virgin olive oil and organic sunflower oil, distilled water, xylitol (from birch) and essential oils of orange 10x, peppermint and/or spearmint and the highest intentions for your health & well being.

The Wonders of Xylitol

Xylitol has been shown to improve breath odor, retard loss of tooth enamel, reduce infections in the mouth and nasopharynx, and relieve dry mouth. It is safe for diabetics and hypoglycemics. Xylitol does not encourage growth of yeast, including Candida albicans. In contrast to ordinary sugar, xylitol increases the absorption of B-vitamins and calcium. Xylitol enjoys wide acceptance in Japan, Finland, and the Scandinavian countries. In the Soviet Union it has been used for decades as a sweetener for diabetics, and in Germany in solutions for intravenous feeding. (The environmental Working Group)

Xylitol has been shown to have the opposite effect of sugar on oral health. Xylitol is non-fermentable and therefore cannot be converted to acids by oral bacteria, thus it helps to restore a proper alkaline/acid balance in the mouth. This alkaline environment is inhospitable to all the destructive bacteria, especially the worst variety, Streptococcus mutans. It also inhibits plaque formation.

A Note for Use With Animals:  Like chocolate, xylitol is toxic to dogs and cats - we are happy to make this soap without xylitol upon request. Just leave a note in the comment section of the shopping cart.

In the book Good Teeth from Birth to Death by Dr. Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., he recommends bar soap for good strong teeth. He states, "Reenamelization of the teeth occurs when they are clean. All toothpastes make a barrier of glycerine on the teeth which would require 20 rinses to get it off. A good solution for clean teeth, which I have used for 5 years, is bar soap. Wet the brush, swipe the bar two or three times with it, then brush the teeth thoroughly and the gums gently. Rinse with water three or four times. All oils are washed off the teeth and the gums are disinfected. The bacteria are killed by the soap. The teeth are then ready for reenamelization with calcium and phosphate in the diet. The enzyme adenosine diphosphatase delivers phosphate to the enamel surface. Reenamelization is necessary on a daily basis because the enamel leaches slightly with water as well as the bones over decades leading to holey bones and holey teeth even in the absence of acid attack. Without reenamelization, we could never have good teeth."

(Although we agree that bar soap is good for teeth, we think it a bit more hygenic to use a closed bottle pump to dispense the soap.)

WHAT'S IN YOUR TOOTHPASTE?

The following article was written by Klaus Ferlow, HMH (Honorary Master Herbalist, Dominion Herbal College, Burnaby, B.C. est. 1926), inventor, lecturer, researcher, president, founder and co-owner with his two sons.

Modern toothpaste is a heavy mix of chemicals and synthetics meant to clean, polish and maintain healthy teeth and gums. But are those ingredients safe, or even necessary?

Many people these days live a healthier lifestyle. They reduce their bad fat intake, reduce refined sugar, replace it with stevia (from a sweet herbal plant from Paraguay), Xylitol, an all natural sweetener, derived from corncobs and birch trees, a proven cavity fighter and safe for use by diabetics and hypoglycemics, or cane sugar. Try to avoid heavily processed foods with artificial colours, sweeteners and chemicals (read the book "Hard To Swallow") such as aspartame, neotame, sodium saccharin, splenda, MSG, (Monosodium glutamate, research shows it is a neurotoxin damaging the nervous system or brain, linked to hormonal imbalances, weight gain, obesity and a variety of other health problems. Eat more certified organic vegetables and fruit grown without herbicide and pesticide spraying or radiation, and even clean your house with non toxic-products.

But have you given any thoughts to what you are swishing around your mouth at least twice a day?

It seems that toothpaste is almost as old as teeth and early populations used abrasives like crushed oyster shells, bone and eggshells mixed with flavouring and powered charcoal. Later essential oils of peppermint, spearmint or cinnamon made brushing more pleasant and helped kill bacteria and germs at the same time.

Most commercial toothpaste have ingredients such as SLS (Sodium lauryl sulphate), fluoride, PVMMA copolymer, sodium laureth sulfate , sodium saccharin, artificial colour etc. Let's find out what the ingredients really are:

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

An detergent, humectant (moisturizer), emulsifier and foaming agent. Don't get deceived if it says on the label "derived from coconut! It is a combination of lauryl alcohol and mineral sodium sulphate, followed by neutralization with sodium carbonate. Found also in care wash soap, engine degreaser, garage floor cleaners. Degenerates cell membranes and can change genetic information (mutagenic) in cells and damage the immune system. It is reported to cause eye irritation, skin rashes,hair loss, dandruff and allergic reactions. Penetrates your eyes, brain, liver and remains there long term.

Sodium Laureth Sulfate

A ionic, negatively charged surfactant. A compound which reduces the surface tension in water, between water and another liquid, or between a liquid and a solid, classified as a wetting agent. It has ether added and is therefore irritating and toxic.

Sodium Fluoride

Derived from hydroluric, made by reacting sulphuric acid with fluorspar, an ore rich calcium fluoride, a hazardous chemical. Researchers have linked to cancer, but no one is listening! Especially dangerous for young children who tend to swallow it after brushing their teeth. Many toothpaste contain enough fluoride in a 120m = 4 oz tube to even kill small child! That's why many toothpaste manufacturers include a warning on their labels "Not to use by children under the age of 6 years." Fluoride can corrode the tooth enamel, when swallowed can lead to Chron's disease. It does not reduce cavities and scientists are linking it to dental deformity, arthritis, allergic reactions and approx. 10.000 death each year from cancer. A report indicated that Fluorosis (fluoride poisoning) can result in darkened or mottled teeth, erosion of enamel, compromised bone structure and a host of other problems including learning disabilities, kidney disease and brain lesions. (see also the article "Hidden Fluoride in our food", January 2002 issue, Alternative Medicine Magazine).

Pvmma Copolymer

A thickener, dispersing agent and stabilizer. It gives a soapy feel, highly irritating to eyes, skin and mucous membrane.

Sodium Saccharin

Artificial sweetener( from the dangerous, hazardous Aspartame family), potential carcinogenic, currently being evaluated by National Toxicology Program, mutagenic, toxic or causes adverse reactions. Tests in the 1980s in rats developed bladder cancer, even the FDA (Federal Drug Administration, USA) list it as a possible carcinogen.

Fd & C Blue No. 1

Often used to dye pastes blue, most coal tar derivative are potential carcinogens, cause allergic reactions, teratogen or toxic and has been known to produce malignant tumors at the site of injection and by ingestion in rats.

These are just a few main chemical ingredients you will find in many toothpastes, but there are also other harmful ingredients found in toothpastes that are hazardous to your health. Therefore "READ CAREFULLY ANY INGREDIENTS ON THE LABELS". If you can't pronounce the name of an ingredient, it is mostly a synthetic chemical and don't buy it!
