OmMade Toothpaste combines the benefits of oil pulling with the whitening properties of Activated Charcoal and the anti-inflammatory properties of Turmeric. Calcium carbonate helps to remineralise the teeth whilst peppermint essential oil is anti-bacterial.
Turmeric Powder Turmeric contains approximately 3-4% curcumin by dry weight. This yellow pigmented polyphenol has been studied extensively in human clinical research as a natural alternative to the common mouthwash ingredient known as chlorhexidine for the treatment of gingivitis (inflammation of the gum tissue).
Activated Charcoal is a highly absorbent substance. Although it looks black, it actively pulls toxins from the mouth and removes stains. ALL of the black washes away and noticeably whitens teeth. Activated Charcoal can also improve the pH and health of the mouth and is therefore effective in preventing cavities and killing the bad bacteria present in tooth decay and gingivitis.
Calcium Carbonate assists in remineralising teeth.
Peppermint Oil demonstrates strong antiseptic properties, making it very useful in dental care. It eliminates bad breath and helps maintain teeth and gum health. Peppermint Essential Oil also provides a typical "toothpaste" flavour.

A note about packaging:
OmMade Toothpaste comes in a reusable silicone travel tube. It is flexible and screws open to allow easy cleaning. We recommend refilling it with your favourite beauty products or even foodstuffs for travel, camping, etc.
Alternatively, contact your local council to enquire about recycling options.
Please note, silicone "breathes" which does mean it is slightly porous so you may find a little condensation on the outside of your packaging. This does not affect the integrity of the contents.
