Natural dental products: Tooth Soap, Dental Miracle, Weleda and more

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) I've been a fan of Tooth Soap for years. This is the product that replaces the usual toothpaste products with far more natural, gentle teeth-washing ingredients. That's why, along with Dental Miracle (, it has remained among my top-recommended products for oral health. (Many other products are mentioned below...)

Because let's face it: You don't actually need to "scrub" your teeth with sand, chemical preservatives and sweeteners. Most toothpaste products are truly a joke -- they're loaded with synthetic chemicals that simply can't be considered safe for human consumption by any reasonable person. Cleaning your teeth only requires a type of soap, some water and some brushing action. You don't need dyes, sweeteners, sand and other nonsense ingredients.

Did I say sand? Yep: Most conventional toothpastes are made with "silicates" which is just another fancy word for sand. If you want to brush away your tooth enamel, scrub them with sand! But if you want to protect your teeth, then brush them with soap and water.

Of course, you wouldn't want to brush your teeth with regular household soaps. They're often loaded with fragrance chemicals that would taste awful. That's why Tooth Soap was created: It's formulated specifically for brushing your teeth, and it contains NO sweeteners, NO sand (silicates), NO fluoride, NO dyes, NO chemical stabilizers and absolutely none of the other chemicals often found in tooth-brushing products.

The ingredients of Tooth Soap are pure and simple:

• Specially formulated soap made from saponified coconut, palm, extra virgin olive oils

• Pure essential oil

That's it! (Plus, it's certified Kosher by Star-K.)

Tooth Soap, you see, really is soap for your teeth. This isn't a paste. It's not a gel. It's actually available in two forms: Liquid and Shreds. And it comes in Peppermint, Cinnamon, Spearmint and Ginger.

Right now we have the following on sale at the NaturalNews Store:

• Peppermint liquid and peppermint shreds
• Spearmint liquid and spearmint shreds

The deeply-discounted price is good while current supplies last:

Why I like Tooth Soap shreds

When it comes to Tooth Soap, I've used both the liquids and the shreds. They're both good products. Some people prefer the liquid, which they drop right into their mouth and start brushing.

The shreds, on the other hand, are small waxy bits of solid Tooth Soap that dissolve into soap when you slightly chew on them and start brushing. So you put one in your mouth, chew on it a couple of times, then start brushing with a wet toothbrush. It immediately starts foaming up, generating an astounding volume of cleansing soap right in your mouth. It's super easy to use, and it really works! (I love these shreds. They're also perfect for traveling...)

Tooth Soap is also remarkably affordable! Way cheaper than most toothpaste products. One bottle of Tooth Soap shreds will last two people up to 3 months because you only need to use one shred per brushing. If you figure that's roughly 90 brushings multiplied by two people, it's 180 brushings in one container of Tooth Soap shreds. And thanks to the 40% off special we have going on right now, the price of this bottle is only $15.57 instead of the retail price of $25.95.

Dividing the sale price into 180 brushings means you're spending approximately 8.7 cents per brushing for what may be the most truly natural tooth cleansing product in the world!

That's competitive with products made with synthetic chemicals that fill your mouth with molecules that simply don't belong there!

Avoid the horrors of chemical toothpaste products

Do you want to know what's in Colgate Whitening Oxygen Bubbles Brisk Mint Toothpaste? (I almost can't stop laughing just from reading the name...)

• Sodium Monofluorophosphate
• Hydrated Silica
• Propylene Glycol
• Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate
• Sodium Bicarbonate
• Sodium Saccharin
• Pentasodium Triphosphate
• Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
• Carrageenan
• Artificial flavor
• Sodium Hydroxide
• Calcium Peroxide

Sodium Hydroxide is lye, by the way. Yep: Drain cleaner. Maybe that's why conventional toothpaste tubes come with a poison control center warning printed on the side...

Amazingly, many parents still push these chemical toothpaste products onto their own children! "Brush your teeth," they're told. "It's good for you!" Meanwhile, an alarmingly large number of children actually EAT this stuff because the flavors fool their tongues into thinking it's good for them...

Other brands of tooth products

Don't even get me started on Tom's of Maine. That brand is owned by Colgate-Palmolive, one of the largest corporations selling consumer products made with synthetic chemicals. (Burt's Bees, by the way, is now owned by Clorox, too. Just because a brand "sounds" small and personal doesn't mean it really is...)

Tom's of Maine may have had humble beginnings when it was created many years ago, but since selling out to Colgate-Palmolive, it has lost touch with its original vision and philosophy, in my view.

Weleda is a brand of toothpaste that I know and trust. This is one of the rare GOOD brands of tooth cleaning products, and their products are truly natural. They have a very nice calendula toothpaste, for example, that I highly recommend. This is what I was using before I discovered Tooth Soap shreds.

I've already mentioned Dental Miracle ( This is a fantastic dental powder product that you add to other toothpastes (or Tooth Soap) during brushing. It's made of extremely beneficial herbal ingredients to protect and promote gum health.

Another great dental product I recommend is called Perigum ( This is a liquid tincture made with very hot with cayenne pepper. It promotes gum tissue circulation and rapid healing. You simply drip this product into your mouth before brushing with whatever other brushing product you're using.

These products, combined with Tooth Soap or Weleda toothpaste, make for a very healthy, chemical-free mouth! These are the products I use, and I haven't had a cavity for so many years that I forgot what it's like to even get one... (of course, I don't eat cake and cookies all day long, and I don't chug sugary soft drinks either).

In any case, we've now got Tooth Soap for a very limited time (a limited inventory, actually) on sale at the NaturalNews Store for you at 40% off. Enjoy the benefits of this revolutionary dental product! These "shreds" will literally change the way you brush your teeth -- for life!
