What you put in your mouth can pass directly into your bloodstream. Choose your oral care wisely.

Even “natural” toothpaste and toothpowder brands often use synthetics, sweeteners, and cheap fillers, so be a bit skeptical — check your labels and know every ingredient you are putting in your mouth! This would be a wise place to apply the precautionary principle.


We use the transmucosal effect for good.

Our Mineral Toothpowder was developed with input from holistic dentistry experts and massive independent research. We only use natural ingredients known to be beneficial to both oral health and general wellbeing— and our natural ingredients are minimally processed to retain maximum potency.

Once you try our toothpowder, you won’t go back to the traditional pastes or the powders that focus on superficial qualities such as foaming, sweeteners, flavorings, etc. And are often laden with cheap fillers (gums, glycerin, low-grade clays), synthetic chemicals (fluoride, triclosan, sorbate, propylene glycol, SLS) artificial colors, “flavors” or sweeteners (saccharin, xylitol, sorbitol, etc.), or are overly harsh on your teeth eroding the enamel (charcoal).

Maintaining a balanced microbiome, eliminating bad bacteria and opportunistic organisms while enhancing the natural cleansing and rebuilding processes of the mouth is one of the most effective, yet inexpensive, steps you can take to support your overall health.

How to use


  1. Tear open refill pack using top perforation.
  2. Pour contents into the jar.
  3. Feel free to compost the refill pack either via home composting or municipal compost services. Don’t compost? Just put in the regular trash.

Note: If needed, before refilling is a time to rinse out and wipe clean your jar. Be sure to dry thoroughly before refilling.


  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).


Q: Is the label compostable?

A: Yes. The films and labels of our refills are certified ASTM 6400 and EIN 13432 for home compost.


Q: How long does it take to break down in someone's compost (backyard)?

A: That depends on the conditions; i.e. temperature, humidity, other organic matter, and the actual effort put forth by the homeowner in working their compost. Both ASTM D6400 (commercial compost) and EIN 13432 (home compost) require the packaging to disintegrate to a certain extent and to a certain particle size within 84 days. Home composting requires disintegration in 120 days.


Q: What if I don’t have a compost pile in the yard or compost service?

A: Dispose of it like you would any other biodegradable material. It’ll break down over time and not leave any plastic residue as typical packaging does. Feel good you aren’t adding more plastic into our environment!

Dental Professionals

Akamai has considered every component of an ideal toothpaste: the pH, abrasiveness, natural antimicrobials, and the ideal ratio of trace minerals and essential oils to maximize absorption and promote a healthy mouth. It is a fantastic product that I would recommend to any of my patients."
— 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!
— Shannon Gleichmann RDH, BS

Healthcare Professionals

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


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

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 our ingredients, 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. Its 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 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.

Love it!

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.

Jordan D.
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!

Maggie R.

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!

Wendy F.
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.

Danielle D.
Love it!

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

Margaret F.
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.

Monika N.
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.

jennifer k.
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

Walter F.
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).
