"Take Care of your body -
its the only place you have to live."
Moondust uses only natural ingredients with absolutely NO nasties, for a deep, refreshing clean that’s good for your health too.
As mothers and natural health enthusiasts, we want to reflect this lifestyle choice in our products. All our ingredients are natural, organic, chemical and preservative-free and chosen for their best effectiveness on dental hygiene. So you can choose real-life useable alternatives to stay healthy and look after your teeth for a lifetime.
THE GOOD STUFF IN
Whether its skincare, oral care, household cleaning or the food we eat, every small decision to substitute a product laden with chemicals and unnatural ingredients for a more natural, body-compatable alternative adds up to healthier outcomes over time. At Moondust we believe in the value of cumulative health decisions, especially when it comes to oral care. It’s incredibly important to us to provide dental care products with only natural ingredients.
All our herbs and spices are Australian certified organic, our clays and charcoals are sourced from fair trade and local Australian enterprises when possible. Our essential oils are all certified for internal use (Doterra), and our gels use only organic, clean oils and ingredients. Our gorgeous accessories are clean too: Made from natural products, that won’t contaminate your dental routine, or later contaminate our environment. Our cornsilk floss is made with just 3 natural ingredients, and our toothbrushes are natural bamboo with charcoal infused bristles. More about Moondust ingredients here
THE TOXIC STUFF OUT
As we become more aware of the potential for toxic exposure in traditional toothpastes, the more important it becomes to seek out truly natural products. Our mouths are not just temporary food storage areas, they're the first access point for everything that goes into the gastrointestinal tract. The oral environment has some of the most absorbent tissue in the entire body - our gums, cheeks tongues and throats are super thin-skinned, and blood flows here very close to the skin.
Many common ingredients in regular toothpastes can negatively affect biological processes, sometimes even in very small doses. If we calculate the amount of times we clean our teeth - twice a day, every day, our entire lives, it doesn't make sense to put anything in that we don't want absorbed through the cheeks and gums. It’s really worth finding a daily-use dental product that supports safe and healthy cleaning - not just for teeth but the whole body.
Today’s children have the longest potential exposure to toxic dental care products. Common toothpaste ingredients like fluoride, sodium laurel sulfate (sls) parabens, soaps, glycerin and preservatives can be absorbed into the body through sensitive oral tissue, and if swallowed (which an overwhelming number of small children do with toothpastes) many of these ingredients can be harmful to gut health and body health over time.
Our young ones have to contend with so many toxic challenges these days, we think their toothpaste shouldn't add to that list. We're committed to making the dental products we want to use on ourselves and our families. Moondust was actually created as an answer to that very problem, offering an effective, delicious cleaner that keeps little ones safe and cares for their dental health as they grow. Along the way we realised it just happens to be awesome for grown ups too! We love a bit of multi-function in our products ;) Go here for more about our story.
