Woodstone Pantry not only sells your staple organic wholefoods but we also stock a few body products which I personally use, believe in and have been created and made by hand by someone I personally know.
Moon Dust Tooth Powder is one of these amazing products! It is handmade in Byron Bay by a lovely lady, Gabrielle, who used to live in Perth and run a food co-op, of which I was a part of. I first came across the idea of using activated charcoal as a natural teeth whitener a few years ago and it is just awesome!
So what exactly is in it? How does it work?
- Activated Coconut Shell Charcoal: one of natures finest magnetic sponges for absorbing toxins, poisons, pollutants and bacteria from the body and contains no additives, chemicals, or binders. It helps create an inhospitable environment for bacteria, draws out toxins in the mouth, freshens breath, and naturally whitens teeth.
- Bentonite Clay: binds to unhealthy substances in the mouth, such as around the teeth and on the tongue and gums, and helps to remove them before you swallow them. Because of Bentonite’s antibacterial properties, it has been used in natural toothpastes and even mixed with water and used as a daily rinse.
- Xylitol: Although it sounds like its a scary chemical that should be avoided, Xylitol is actually a sweetener derived from birch (a tree). It prevents bacteria from sticking to the teeth, protecting them from decay, as well as naturally sweetening the product.
Moon Dust Teeth Whitening Powder is definitely worth giving a go. I personally use it once or twice a week but it can be used daily as your everyday toothpaste as it has a low abrasivity as not to harm the enamel. Moon Dust is safer and cheaper than chemical teeth whitening products and it can also be used for much more than just your teeth!
You can use it on your face and your underarms too?!
