Activated Charcoal is one of natures finest magnetic sponges for absorbing toxins, poisons, pollutants and bacteria from the body and contains contains no additives, chemicals, or binders.
Used in our powders it helps create an inhospitable environment for bacteria, draws out toxins in the mouth, freshens breath, and is the secret sauce for naturally whitening teeth!
Our Medicinal Grade Activated Coconut Charcoal is sustainably sourced from Sri Lanka. Safe to swallow.
The mouth is one of the most susceptible areas of the body when it comes to harmful outside “invaders” taking over, like bacteria and toxins, but Bentonite Clay has a strong negative electromagnetic charge, and when activated by water, it acts like a magnet in and on our bodies, pulling metals and toxins to it, binding to unhealthy substances in the mouth, around the teeth and on the tongue and gums, and helps to remove them before you swallow them. Its natural alkalinity neutralises acidic bacgerial by-products and foods, and low abrasivity make our clay perfect for daily natural oral care.
Our Clay is 100% sourced from Australia using clean extraction practices and its food-grade so safe to ingest.
DE is another great product for teeth. Made of 80% silica so strengthenign for teeth, its naturally crystaline structure helps remove plaque and tartar, cleaning stains from the teeth and drawing toxins. DE is actually composed of the exokeleton of prehistoric diatomic marine algal organisms, and it has a unique toxin-grabbing structure, that works as well internally as it does externally to capture toxins, and dessicate bacteria, virus and parasites.
Natural food grade diatomaceous earth contains many trace minerals including; calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, iron, phosphorous, and selenium, which are also helpful to strengthen teeth and gums. Its a dynomite addition to Moondust Powders.
We use an ultra fine organic food grade DE, which is highly effective and has a low abrasion factor
Xylitol may sound like a chemical to be avoided, but its actually a naturally occuring plant sugar, found in many fruits, plants and trees. But even though its a natural sugar, xylitol not only doesn't cause cavities but actively prevents cavities by promoting the remineralisation of tooth enamel, changing the structure of saliva and directly affecting bacterial decay synthesis. Xylitol has been shown in lab tests to actually prevent bacteria from sticking to teeth and gums. Its also naturally sweet! Which is a win-win for both dental protection and compliance with a yummy brushing experience!
We use a low-manufactured extract created from sustainably grown birch trees. Imported from the USA. Certified non GMO, Kosher
Sea Minerals are high in calcium and Magnesium, essential building blocks for healthy dentition - as well as several treace minerals inmportant to the remineratisation process. We use food-grade minerals sourced from clean oceans to support cleaning and remineralisation of teeth. Great for a daily addition to your dental routine.
In our blends we use a blend of Spearmint and Peppermint and Liquorice to add that freshness to the powder. Powder is a softer way of adding flavour as essential oils can be a bit strong for some people.
But they not only taste great, they have oral health benefits of their own. Peppermint has been shown to be as effective as the mouthwash chemical chlorhexidine in inhibiting the formation of biofilm formations linked to dental cavities. Powdered peppermint and spearmint leaves have also been used historically to freshen breath and whiten teeth. Both our ACO Certified Organic non-irradiated Peppermint and spearmint powders are sourced from Egypt.
The root of the liquorice plant is edible and is sweet which is why we choose this as our natural sweetener. But its not just a pretty taste: antibacterial chemicals have been found in liquorice that are believed to inhibit two major causes of tooth decay bacteria and gum decease bacteria. Our ACO Certifed Organic Liquorice powder is sourced from Egypt
In our blends we use a blend of powdered Cinnamon and Clove to add that freshness to our powders. Powder is a softer way of adding flavour as essential oils can be a bit strong for some people.
But they not only taste great, they have oral health benefits of their own. Naturally antibacterial and refreshing for the mouth our carefully selected spices have been used for thousands of years in India and China, not only as condiments, but also as medicine for many ailments. Ayurvedic medicine used cloves for halitosis (bad breath) and clove oil is highly antibacterial. Clove oil has been used in dental practice for hundreds of years to lessen the severity of toothache. Our Organic Clove Powder comes from Fairtrade farmers in Sri Lanka.
Cinnamon is a spice that's been used since antiquity for its antibacterial properties, and is a great addition to our mix - helping to remove bacteria, and providing great flavour. Its active compound Cinnamaldehyde has profound antifungal and antibacterial properties that are useful for daily oral use. We use the medicinal form of Cinnamon 'Cinnamomum verum' as it has stronger flavour and proven health benefits. Our Organic Cinnamon powder is from Fairtrade farmers in Sri Lanka
In our blends we use a blend of powdered Ginger and Cardamon to add that freshness to our products. Powder is a softer way of adding flavour as essential oils can be a bit strong for some people.
But they not only taste great, they have oral health benefits of their own.
Ginger (we use Zingiber Officionalis) has many wonderful health qualities taken internally, but for us, we just love the warm tingly feeling we get from using the power in Moondust Cahi-spice powder. This is more than just a pleasant sensation, because this warmth is a direct result of increased blood flow to the gums, and increased blood flow leads to healthier gums that repair more quickly and are more robust against periodontal diseases. Cardamom is also a warming powder, and just one of those essential flavours for chai you can't go past! Our ACO certified Organic Ginger powders are sourced from China and our ACO Organic Certified Cardamom powder is sourced from Fairtrade Farmers in Guatemala.
