Tooth Powder

The first time I saw tooth powder was in a Japanese zakka book a few years ago. A nice Japanese lady was dipping her toothbrush into a round tin of tooth powder. Since I am fan of really old-fashioned things, I had to have some. I came across this small bottle of natural tooth powder that only contains 4 ingredients (natural chalk, mustard seed powder, sea salt , and natural plant essence). Regular toothpaste contains chemicals such as fluoride and sodium lauryl sulfate whose safety is debated among the medical community. I hate that companies just throw chemicals into their products because they are cheap to use.

Tooth powder seems like a good alternative to using regular tooth paste, but my only concern is if the texture is too abrasive for my tooth enamel. Does anyone have any experience with this?

tooth powder is brilliant!! i found it kept my teeth nice and white :) just be careful not to eat or drink anything too acidic just before or after brushing and you should be fine!

My mom's dad wouldn't use anything else...and people always remarked how nice his teeth looked. They almost sparkled.
