Why Coconut Oil Toothpaste Works
Coconut Oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal! Studies have shown that coconut oil destroys the bacteria that can cause tooth decay.
Using the principles of the ancient oil pulling techniques we blended coconut oil with other natural whitening products to design an amazing toothpaste.
“Oil pulling” is increasingly being added to people’s morning brush and floss routine, but it has been a traditional remedy for 3,000 years in Ayurvedic medicine – the ancient Indian healing system. It involves taking a teaspoon of oil and swishing it round for five to 20 minutes before spitting it out.
Research has shown that oil pulling with coconut oil significantly reduced levels of plaque and gum disease.
Further scientific studies have recently confirmed that coconut oil “pulls” fat-soluble toxins from the surface of the skin and gums, reduces plaque and acts as a natural cleansing agent for the teeth and gums. It is quite remarkable.
Coconut oil is unique because it contains predominantly medium chain fatty acids, of which 45-50 per cent is lauric acid. Lauric acid has proven anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects.
We believe Maxwell & McIntyre’s Toothpowder is the best natural alternative to using a commercial paste, with the added benefit of the enamel building properties of NZ Kelp helping remove hot and cold sensitivity in many clients.
Our Coconut Oil Toothpaste is hand-made in Leigh, New Zealand, with:
- organic, cold pressed virgin coconut oil significantly reduces plaque and acts as a natural cleansing agent for the teeth and gums
- Strawberry natural colour and flavour from real strawberries
- baking soda is a very mild abrasive, helping in cleaning and whitening teeth, neutralizing acids in plaque, and freshens breath
- aniseed oil naturally enhances flavour
- xylitol is a plant derived sweetener which has been proven to reduce the formation of dental caries
- calcium carbonate gives the paste a creamy texture, acts as a mild abrasive and introduces calcium to the body and saliva
Maxwell & McIntyre is the right product for anyone looking for a completely natural traditional toothpaste replacement. There are NO Harmful Chemicals OR Foaming Agents in our products!
Most commercial toothpaste contains harmful and toxic ingredients, such as titanium dioxide, FDC, Blue Dye, sodium lauryl sulfate, and sodium fluoride.
These ingredients can also be found in toothpaste that is labelled “all natural”.
These chemicals are not only harmful to your delicate tooth enamel, they also affect your overall health! Glycerin is another ingredient to be cautious of as it can inhibit remineralization of teeth, something older customers know well.
Conventional toothpaste such as Total contains an antibacterial chemical called triclosan, which has been linked to concerns over antibiotic resistance and endocrine disruption. Is this something you want to absorb?
Many “NATURAL” toothpaste contain surfactants like sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate (SLS), or sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES). Surfactants are chemicals responsible for the foaming action of the toothpaste, but they also interfere with the functioning of your taste buds by breaking up the phospholipids on your tongue.
This enhances bitter tastes and is thought to be the reason why everything tastes so bad right after you’ve brushed your teeth. This may also be part of why coconut oil works so well for oral hygiene, as it helps maintain a more natural balance of lipids on your tongue, while still having potent antibacterial properties.
When you wake up in the morning after a normal nights sleep the first thing you will notice is an absence of that “furry feeling”. After brushing your whole mouth feels clean so unlike a traditional toothpaste experience.
