Since Natch is a fully vegan product we incorporate nano-hydroxyapatite (nHAp) a version made from a naturally occurring form of calcium phosphate instead of bovine. It is actually the main mineral our teeth and bones are made of (approx. 95% of enamel & 70% of dentin). Studies have shown nHAp to be an effective non-toxic alternative to fluoride that can equally help remineralize the enamel and reduce the risk of cavities and tooth erosion. Learn more.
A form of volcanic ash that gets its name from the largest known deposit in Fort Benton, Wyoming, USA and Montmorillon, France, where it was discovered in the 1800’s. Its high pH levels have an alkalizing effect which is beneficial for the health of your teeth and gums, especially as some of the food we eat can create excess acidity in our mouths. It’s an excellent natural detoxing, nurturing oral tonic. Learn More.
Xylitol is a lower-calorie sugar substitute extracted from Finnish birch wood that possess antioxidant properties.

Diatomaceous Earth is a naturally occurring and absorbent form of fossilized algae made of silica. Our food grade version is great for gently and effectively cleaning plaque and bacteria from your teeth. DE is known to have a negative charge - this means that, when brushing your teeth, it attracts, absorbs and traps bacteria with a positive charge, such as fungi, parasites and heavy metals. The good bacteria generally have a negative or neutral charge, so are left behind.
Himalayan Pink Salt
Himalayan salt is mined from the Salt Range mountains, the southern edge of a fold-and-thrust belt that underlies the Pothohar Plateau south of the Himalayas. It derives its color from trace minerals that are very beneficial to our enamel and gum tissue. It enhances the enamel remineralization and promotes healing processes.
Calcium carbonate is a common substance found in rock minerals like calcite and aragonite with the highest amount of medicinally used calcium.

Stevia is extracted from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana native to Latin America. Its white crystalline compound (stevioside) is the natural herbal sweetener with no calories and is over 100-300 times sweeter than table sugar. Unlike with other sugars, bacteria in your mouth cannot metabolize stevia and thus turn it into organic acid that begins to erode your teeth making an effective dental cavity suppressor.
Organic Quillaja Saponaria
Quillaja Saponaria, the soap bark tree or soapbark, is an evergreen tree in the family Quillajaceae, native to warm temperate central Chile.
