Akamai Mineral Toothpowder helps remineralize teeth in 5 key ways.

  1. All the minerals you need. Loaded with 72 macro and trace minerals you get all the minerals needed for remineralization to occur (not just calcium and phosphorus found in hydroxyapatite). In addition, the particle size and nature of the minerals get into dental tubule openings to remineralize.

  2. Controls cavity causing bad bacteria. Essential oils attack bad bacteria while clays trap and remove bacteria along with the toxins they emit which can erode teeth.

  3. Contains no ingredients that can inhibit remineralization such as glycerin which coats teeth.

  4. Promotes salivation. Saliva helps remineralize teeth by washing them with the minerals already in your body.

  5. Reduces acidity. An acidic mouth can cause demineralization.

Why we don’t use Hydroxyapatite

  1. Most “natural” toothpastes use a synthetic nanoparticle form called NHap. And nanoparticles have never been proven safe in long term studies. In fact, it appears the EU plans to ban Nano Hydroxyaptite in 2022/23.
  2. The natural form of hydroxyapatite is mostly calcium and phosphorus and is highly processed so less bioavailable (absorbable by the body).
  3. Our 100% natural, nutrient-dense Mineral Toothpowder is loaded with bioavailable macro & trace minerals to assist in remineralization. It has all the minerals needed for remineralization to occur.
  4. With a healthy diet, proper nutrients & oral care routine, teeth will remineralize naturally.
  5. Man-made synthetic and naturally derived ingredients are not natural or needed for the body to self heal — in fact they may cause harm.

NOTE: many toothpaste brands that use natural Hydroxyapatite in their formulas link to studies that show the effectiveness of synthetic Nano-hydroxyapatite, not the natural forms. So claims of "natural Hydroxyapatite" being "clinically proven" are misleading.

The amazing benefits of Living Clays.

Our Mineral Toothpowder is made with raw, non-irradiated, therapeutic grad Calcium Montmorillonite Clay (a superior form of calcium bentonite). This “Living Clay” has some amazing benefits and is naturally rich in nutrients and beneficial bacteria

Living Clays are a very special kind of clay that is able to bond to pathogens like heavy metals, bad bacteria, viruses and toxins and safely remove them from our bodies. Since these clays are negatively charged, and pathogens are positively charged, they attract each other. Cool!

Since it is raw, unrefined and non irradiated it is also loaded with beneficial bacteria to support a healthy oral microbiome and mouth. And it releases a bounty of mineral nutrients that support tooth remineralization.

Most clay you see in natural toothpaste is highly processed and does not offer these multiple benefits. It’s like comparing a highly processed food to a whole food!

FYI - the definition of a Living Clay refers to a class of mineral (crystal) in nature that encompasses all elements science associates with biological life…but more on that later!

How to use

  1. Wet toothbrush.
  2. Shake off excess water.
  3. Dip the top half of your toothbrush in the powder (you don't need much).
  4. Brush gently and mindfully (we like the Bass Method).

Tips

  • IMPORTANT: To get the best results, set aside any other toothpaste you may have been using. Our Mineral Toothpowder is very carefully balanced to support oral health, a healthy microbiome and remineralization. Even supposedly "natural" toothpastes contain ingredients that may reduce optimal effectiveness. So set aside your old toothpaste and see how much better your teeth and gums are at your next dental cleaning!  
  • The longer you leave our remineralizing toothpowder in your mouth, the more nutrients will be absorbed. Instead of rinsing, add water to your mouth and swish it around for a while before spitting. No need to rinse.
  • Brushing your teeth is a great time to slow down. If you normally rush, try brushing a bit slower and intentionally focusing on areas that might need special attention. Great for your oral health, easy on your bathroom since it also cuts down on toothpaste splatter. Try our bamboo toothbrush.
  • Recommended and safe to use with sensitive teeth. In fact, sensitivity may very well reduce over time.
  • Have bad breath? Our Tongue Cleaner is a simple, effective tool that can help.  
  • Looking to optimize your oral care routine? Per the advice of Dr. Steven Koral (DMD Harvard) and the team at Boulder Holistic Dentistry: take Fulvic Mineral Complex (to feed your teeth and gums from the inside out). This has been a game changer for us and thousands more.
  • Prefer a paste? Add some of our Oil Pulling Mouthwash, a little at a time, to form a paste to your desired consistency - adding oil is better than water, which will dry out faster in a jar. OR, you can mix in colloidal silver for extra bad bacteria fighting power (or try both).

Here are just a few of the hundreds of endorements we've received...

— Dr. Andrea Mustian, DMD Harvard School of Dental Medicine

As a registered dental hygienist, this is my favorite toothpaste. They have packed so many good ingredients into this paste; liposomal Co Q10, trace minerals, a healthy balance of essentials oils in a detoxifying clay base. It leaves my mouth feeling clean & fresh. It's Akamai or nothing at all for me!

Thank you, Akamai for creating a toothpaste that is genuinely good for us. Love the product and the thoughtfulness that went into its formulation.”

Press

If you’re willing to adjust your sense of what toothpaste should taste and feel like, then this natural toothpaste will offer actual health benefits, i.e. remineralization, rather than the mostly cosmetic benefits of conventional toothpaste.” — Treehugger

We searched high and low for an all natural, toxin-free, remineralizing toothpaste for our family but weren’t satisfied with what we found. Even the “natural” remineralizing toothpastes contained cheap fillers, sweeteners, and ingredients that aren’t beneficial to oral health. Out of frustration, we dove deep into understanding what makes a healthy mouth and strong teeth and started creating our own formulation. We enlisted the help of Dr. Steve Koral (a true pioneer and leader of holistic dentistry and graduate of Harvard Dental School, summa cum laude) and other holistic industry experts to help us refine our formulation and make our remineralizing toothpaste truly powerful.

It took several years but it was worth it. Our remineralizing toothpaste powder delivers on everything we feel is truly important: 100% natural, nourishing, healing, effective at fighting bad bacteria and cleaning teeth, completely safe and free of any of the junk found in tpyical natural toothpastes. For us it has to be eco-friendly, so we elminated plastic tubes and water moving to powder form delivered in glass jars with metal lids and compostable refills. Akamai Mineral Toothpowder was born.

Once you try our remineralizing toothpaste powder you won’t go back to the sweet, chalky traditional toothpastes laden with fillers (gums, glycerin), synthetic chemicals (fluoride, triclosan, sorbate, propylene glycol, SLS, artificial colors and “flavors”) artificial sugar (saccharin) or sugar alcohols (xylitol, sorbitol). Or the chalky sweet powders that do nothing other than clean and polish your teeth. Even “natural” brands often use synthetics, sweeteners and cheap fillers - check your labels!

Q: How abrasive is your toothpowder?

A: The RDA for our toothpowder is around 100. Ideally formulated to remove stains while protecting and preserving tooth enamel.

 

Q: Is it safe to dip my toothbrush in the powder?

A: Our Mineral Toothpaste Powder (aka Mineral Toothpowder) should not become contaminated, even when sharing. Every ingredient is naturally antibacterial - in fact, our Calcium Montmorillonite Clay is antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral. In addition, the high PH (between 9 and 10) is another factor in limiting any type of contamination (viruses and bad bacteria typically can't thrive in a waterless, high PH environment).

 

Q: Why should I avoid common ingredients like glycerin, foaming agents, guar gum, natural sweeteners and fluoride, common in natural toothpastes?

A: Some ingredients found in commercial brands and even natural brands can be harmful. Others are unnecessary and provide no real benefits to your oral health. Check out Not So Good Ingredients in Natural Toothpastes and 7 Disturbing Facts About Chemicals in Personal Care Products to learn more.

The other big issue is that most of the natural and commercial brands of toothpaste or toothpowder do not contain natural ingredients to fight bad bacteria and/or help remineralize teeth, which is the whole point of brushing your teeth and effective oral care.

 

Q: Why did you get rid of the Toothpaste?

A: While toothpaste is pretty convenient, from an environmental standpoint, it's a bit of a disaster — with an estimated 1 billion tubes tossed annually. Plus, one of our goals is to sell products that are concentrated — eliminating fillers (even water) whenever we can.

To continue making a paste, we would have had to compromise the purity of our ingredient deck by adding "industry accepted" antibacterials/preservatives — a line we will not cross.

We will not bend when it comes to adding any suspect ingredients into our products — this includes things like naturally derived/“supposedly benign” preservatives. Taking the water out of the paste removes these concerns since, without it, we remove the possibility of unwanted bacterial growth.

Improving our health, while improving the health of our planet is one of our core values and we believe they co-create each other.

Do you live in California? Please read the statement below. While we love the idea of Prop 65, we are not fans of how the law was written - when it comes to natural substances, it promotes ignorance vs. knowledge.

As required by the State of California, so that we can legally sell this product to residents of that state, we must put the following language on our site: California Proposition 65 WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

This is because one of the ingredients we use, Bentonite Clay, can have low levels of heavy metals in it. Sounds scary, right? However, the naturally occurring (organic) heavy metals in clay are molecularly bound to clay particles – meaning they are not bioavailable, and can’t be absorbed.

Clay is powerful stuff. It’s positively charged ions bind to heavy metals so that they are contained and expelled rather than absorbed by our bodies. In fact, one of bentonite clay’s many therapeutic uses is to consume orally to remove heavy metals from your body – a process called “chelating”.

Prop 65 is a law with good intentions but with major flaws. For example, Prop 65 limits for lead are so low, almost all plant foods (eg. green beans, spinach, avocados, etc.) contain amounts higher than allowed by this law, but they do NOT carry the warning.

Furthermore, eating the USDA recommended 3 – 5 servings of vegetables could expose you to 10X the maximum allowed by Prop 65. (In fact, 1 serving of our toothpaste has less lead it in than 1 serving of many plant foods.)

In addition, Prop 65 does a poor job of clearly exempting items like clay where heavy metals are in an organic, bound, non-bioavailable form -- and many are pushing for reforms to Prop 65.

So, remember these 2 important points: 1) Heavy metals in bentonite clay are not bioavailable and cannot be absorbed, 2) bentonite clay helps remove heavy metals from your body.

We believe our toothpaste is 100% safe for ourselves, our family and you.

Great Product

Works really well… My teeth are less sensitive and they feel so much smoother. Won’t be using store bought tooth products anymore.

Works so good!!

I don't think I can go back to regular toothpaste after using Akamai. My teeth are so much more clean, and I can feel it's healthier for my teeth. Highly recommended!

Gamechanger

I've really made a point to reduce my toxic load after reversing my autoimmune and chronic illness symptoms, and making sure my oral care products are as natural and effective as possible is a huge part of that. Not only is this brand dedicated to quality, it's also really effective. My tooth sensitivity had significantly decreased in just ONE WEEK! I will never go back to pastes with questionable ingredients ever again. There's simply no need with a brand like Akamai around. Everyone needs to know about this stuff!

Mineral based tooth powder

It has taken a little time and use time to acclimate to powder but it feels right after use. It cleans better than store toothpaste, has better ingredients and along with other Akamai products seems to be a far better choice for tooth care.

Love it!

I will never use toothpaste again! Akamai tooth powder is the BEST!!!

Great product

I have been using the mineral toothpowder for 3 weeks now and am amazed how clean my teeth are and how the sensitivity has lessened. You also don’t need much of the product when you brush. It does take a little getting used to because it isn’t like regular toothpaste, however I am so happy to have found an all natural product that works better than what we have always been told to use.

Mineral tooth powder

I have not been using it very long but so far I like everything about it. I spend thousands of dollars every year on dental care. I knew regular toothpaste was not good for me but I did not know where to go to get something healthy. I like that you can leave it on overnight if you want. They say the longer you leave their remineralizing tooth powder in your mouth, the more nutrients will be absorbed. I have decided to make Akamai my go to products. This company is great. They give you tips on how to use everything.

Great tooth powder

I combine the tooth powder with a fluoride free toothpaste and several essential oils. The powder seems to help give a deeper clean.

Thanks for your review Jennifer! If you choose to combine our Mineral Toothpowder with another toothpaste just make sure that it is free from ingredients that can counter the remineralizing, oral microbiome boosting and detoxing effects. Glycerin, sugar alcohols, preservatives, etc. Look out for other not so good ingredients too this blog will help you with what to look out for. https://www.akamaibasics.com/blogs/learn-more/the-facts-on-ingredients-in-natural-toothpastes

Tentative Review

Compared to Dentalciden from Biocidin Botanicals your product is disappointing.

Hi Walter!

I love all of the botanicals in Biocidin - it is a really great blend.

However, there are ingredients in the toothpaste that are not good, and it follows a standard commercial toothpaste formulation of 'Sugar, Soap and Sand'- all completely unnecessary, detrimental and inexpensive:

(Sugar) Sorbitol, a slow metabolizing sugar alcohol, can be made from fruits, (GMO) corn, and seaweed, but commercially, the source is dextrose (glucose) produced from gluten-free cornstarch, likely of GMO origin. Sweet does not belong in toothpaste and this is the #1 ingredient! It does nothing for oral health.

(Sugar) Vegetable glycerin is a problem in toothpaste due to an inherent stickiness which encourages small amounts to remain on the teeth after cleaning. This inhibits the mineral rich saliva from contacting the entire surface of the teeth which can inhibit remineralization....and it may add to the formation of cavities (since it attracts plaque). It is also sweet, again. It does nothing for oral health. Glyercin and Sorbitol are in toothpaste formulations to reduce water activity (bacteria).

(Sand) Hydrated silica is an inexpensive abrasive, also known as silicon dioxide or sand. It can be too abrasive. What is the RDA of the toothpaste?

(Soap) Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate is a foaming agent. While it is naturally derived it is still a highly processed ingredient made in a lab. AND, we don't need to wash our teeth with soap. It is a common ingredient in shampoos. In addition, foaming agents can be drying in the mouth. It is does nothing for oral health.

'Natural organic flavor', who know what that is.....'flavors' are to be avoided because the composition is not part of the ingredients list. Best to avoid all 'natural flavors'. It does nothing for oral health.

Cellulose Gum is a cheap filler and does nothing for oral health - it is a stabilizer and is highly processed. It does nothing for oral health.

Water is a cheap filler. Why type of water? Purified? It does nothing for oral health.

Since it contains the patented Biocidin ingredient it is probably good at fighting bad bacteria without obliterating the oral microbiome. However, it does nothing to aid in the remineralization process (it contains no minerals) and may impede it (due to the glycerin). Our Mineral Toothpowder contains over 75 naturally occurring minerals, amino acids, organic acids, and antioxidants.

Our Toothpowder is 100% natural - truly - not naturally derived or highly processed. It is plant and earth based. EVERY ingredient is beneficial for oral health, and it comes in a glass jar or compostable pouch.

And, to top it off Dentalcidin costs $28!! You are paying for the patented ingredient (Biodicidin)- everything else in the formulation is probably less than $1 per PLASTIC tube (not earth friendly).
