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!

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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Recommended and safe for sensitive teeth.
  • Have bad breath? Cure it with our Tongue Cleaner.
  • 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).

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.

Say goodbye to plastic. Say hello to sustainability.

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. 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 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.

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

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

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.
  2. The natural form of hydroxyapatite is mostly calcium and phosphorus and is highly processed so less bioavailable (absorbable by the body).
  3. Our toothpowder already has an abundance of bioavailable ingredients including macro & trace minerals to assist in remineralization.
  4. With a healthy diet, proper nutrients & oral care routine, teeth will remineralize naturally.
  5. We only use 100% natural, nutrient-dense ingredients. Nanoparticles, synthetic and naturally derived ingredients are not natural or needed for the body to self heal — in fact they may cause harm.
