INGREDIENTS USED AND WHY:
COCOS NUCIFERA (pure coconut oil) is harvested from the meat of matured coconuts and boost microbiome and prevents candida in the mouth naturally.
MATCHA LEAF POWDER (matcha mint flavor only) protects tooth enamel and discoloration
ORGANIC CACAO NIBS (mint chip flavor only) compounds in cacao beans promote remineralization safer than fluoride and break up biofilm
FREEZE DRIED STRAWBERRY POWDER (fresh strawberry flavor only) high in vitamins and minerals and provide natural flavor and color
FREEZE DRIED PINEAPPLE POWDER (pina colada flavor only) pineapples contain an enzyme that can whiten teeth and remove plaque and it provides natural flavor and color.
GROUND CINNAMON CLOVE POWDERS (cinnamon roll flavor only) historically used to help with tooth decay but there are many benefits from the anti-oxidant properties and freshening the mouth.
ACTIVATED CHARCOAL POWDER (charcoal white flavor only) absorbs surface stains on teeth to naturally whiten smiles .
SAPINDUS MUKOROSSI (soap berry nut) 100% natural bio-surfactant naturally produces saponin for shinier cleaner teeth.
CALCIUM CARBONATE remineralizes teeth without using flouride. Gently scrubs, polishes, and nourishes teeth without causing abrasion.
SODIUM BICARBONATE (aluminum free ultra fine baking soda) is alkaline with a pH of 9 to 11 which will neutralize the acids in the mouth and promote tooth remineralization making them cavity-resistant. Baking soda acts as a very mild abrasive for cleansing and polishing the teeth, kills germs, removes odors and can help freshen the breath.
BENTONITE CLAY is a natural polisher rich in minerals that isn’t too abrasive. It’s also alkaline, so it helps reduce acidity in the mouth, brightens teeth, and promotes tooth remineralization.
WHITE KAOLIN CLAY is rich in aluminum and high in calcium, silica, zinc and magnesium and helps to whiten and polish the teeth.
ILLITE/SEA CLAY is a bio-mineral containing trace minerals including: silica, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, selenium, cobalt, manganese, phosphorous, silicon, micro-algae, and kelp so it works well in oral health formulas.
ORGANIC XYLITOL is a natural, plant-based sweetener that helps promote a neutral pH level in the mouth, prevents tooth decay by keeping bacteria from sticking to the teeth and decreases the amount of plaque cavity-causing bacteria in the mouth.
ORGANIC PURE ESSENTIAL OILS & MENTHOL are used in some but not all flavors for their antiseptic qualities and to freshen the mouth.
INGREDIENTS WE DON'T USE AND WHY:
NO TRICLOSAN (a pesticide and hormone disruptor)
NO SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE (SLS) cause irritation and organ toxicity plus canker sores
NO ARTIFICIAL COLORINGS/FLAVORINGS (linked to cancer and ADHD)
NO ABRASIVE INGREDIENTS (damages enamel, making teeth sensitive and more prone to cavities)
NO GLYCERIN (non-toxic but has been found to strip oral mucosa and we don't like that it leaves a film on the teeth)
NO TITANIUM DIOXIDE (nanoparticles cause gum irritations when they get absorbed in gum tissues)
Scentcerae® products are not FDA approved nor are they intended to treat, cure, prevent, or diagnose any disease or condition. The ingredients used in these formulas have been stability tested for a shelf life of 12 months and beta-testing results show they work well as a traditional toothpaste alternative.
