Best toothpowder ever! SLS?
Posted by PurplePegasus on Aug 07, 2010
I love this one! Great anise taste; I use it about 7 times a day! My teeth look very clean. I have horrendous tooth pain from probably cavities and brushing with this doesn't hurt at all. My teeth feel really clean. The pain has subsided. My only concern is does this one contain SLS? All the other flavors list SLS except this one. My email to the company bounced. Did Eco-Dent forget to list SLS? This foams quite a bit with only a tiny bit of powder. A google search indicates that even "coconut derived" SLS is toxic. (All SLS is "coconut derived" with chemicals added.) I hope Eco-Dent will respond to this. Note: anise does NOT taste like licorice! Anise is light & sweet & very pleasant (& is sometimes used to flavor licorice).
Contains suspected ingredient

Excellent taste but unfortunately contains Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate that is a Nitrosating Agent, the chemical can cause nitrosamine contaminations, which have been determined to form cancer in laboratory animals. That's why only 1 star from me.

Regular toothpastes contain glycerin which traps acids on the teeth (particularly if you are consiencious and always brush after meals). This does not contain glycerin and does a very good job of cleaning teeth and mouth. If more people knew about the problems with glycerin, more people would be using this and regular toothpaste would go out of fashion.
The best toothpowder, great flavor for using with homeopathics

I've used Eco-Dent for many years and my dentist always comments on how healthy my gums and teeth are (of course, I dental floss every day too, and never drink fluoridated water!). The flavor is nice and good if you're taking homeopathics (a strong mint flavor can supposedly antidote some remedies).

I really like this. It foams nicely and makes my teeth feel very clean. When I first saw the bottle, I worried it wouldn't last long. But after using it, I think it will actually last a long time. I sprinkle a dime or nickel amount into my palm, then wet the toothbrush, pick up the powder and start brushing. This produces a good amount of foam, if not I add a bit more. Flavor is interesting, a combo of baking soda, sea salt and Anise (mild licorice).

I have just started using this & I love the taste, it foams slightly & leaves your teeth feeling really clean. I had been looking for a paste/powder without glycerine for some time. I put a little powder in my hand, wet my toothbrush and just scoop it up with that, otherwise its hard to get the right amount on your brush. I think this will last ages as you only use a tiny amount.

tastes good. although may be a little harsh of teeth & gum for some. so i don't use it every day.

This smells great, but tastes terrible. I was disappointed in the flavor.
Great flavor, smooth, clean teeth!

I love this tooth powder. It doesn't have any nasty chemicals in it, but it does its job and leaves my teeth feeling all smooth and shiny.
Nice change of Flavour

Very good! I've used Eco-Dent Daily Care Toothpowder for about a year, and the anise is a nice change.
