In my quest to find an organic or natural toothpaste that I could love, I stumbled upon this at my local health food store. I have the daily care version in cool mint and was lucky to get a couple of generous samples before getting the bottle. It is a powder and can be a bit messy. I sprinkle a little on a wet toothbrush and then brush my teeth. It lathers extremely well and really does a good job of leaving my mouth feeling clean. My teeth feel polished and although you get a weird aftertaste from initial use, you eventually get used to it. Like another reviewer said, the aftertaste is from the soda bicarbonate (baking soda). I have experienced no irritation to my gums and it has helped a bit with some stubborn stains I had from drinking coffee or soda (bad, I know lol) and I don't have to worry about glycerine and other filler ingredients in commercial toothpastes. It is worth a shot. I am looking forward to trying the mouth wash from the Eco-Dent line and will update soon to see how well it pairs with the tooth powder.

I use this, the whitening version as well as Uncle Harry's tooth powders and they are all equally good in different ways. Uncle Harry's has a stronger minty flavor so it resembles toothpaste and has a slightly salty taste. It also doesn't foam while Eco-Dents powders, due to them having different primary ingredients, foam like crazy and give a bicarbonate soda taste. Both cost the same. Eco-Dent is easier to find in health food stores, Uncle Harry's is a little harder to find in stores but available on the website.....
These are the actual products I own: Eco-Dent Daily Care, Extra Brite, Tartar Guard. Neither of these give me tooth sensitivity as do regular drug store toothpastes.
If you are looking for a good natural tooth powder I would try both and see which one you prefer....See my Uncle HArry's tooth powder review for more info on my teeths progress.
...2013 October. Since last year when I wrote the first review I now use Uncle Harrys tooth powder exclusively for the sole reason that I noticed that after about 4 hours U.Hs would leave my mouth feeling as fresh as it did when I first brushed it. I also liked that it didn't have bicarbonate of soda in it.

love this tooth powder.....I also use the whitening version which works great as well. Uses calcium instead of fluoride to strengthen teeth.

This is a tooth powder, not a toothpaste, but I put toothpaste in the title so that it would be easier for people to find the review.

This comes in a little bottle, and you squeeze some out onto your wet toothbrush. I then drip a couple of drops of water on it from my finger.

I have tried both the Daily Care and the Whitening of this brand, and like both. They taste weird and a little yucky at first, because they're mostly baking soda, but my mouth and teeth feel cleaner/fresher afterwards with this than with any toothpaste I've ever tried. Eventually, you get used to the flavor, and it doesn't seem gross anymore. This doesn't foam as much as toothpaste, and makes my teeth feel slicker, like they're more polished.

My husband has sensitive teeth, and when using the Daily Care, they are less sensitive. (When he uses the Whitening one, they get more sensitive.)

This is great to travel with. It's light, compact, and even if it opens, it's just powder, so it's no big deal. It's more expensive than toothpaste, at about $6.50 a bottle, but each bottle has enough for 200 brushings (that's what it says on the front, and if you're careful not to spill it when using it, I believe it). One bottle lasts us months and months.

The only problem with the packaging is that if you like to brush your teeth in the shower, as I do, and you get a little water (mist) on the top of the bottle, the powder will harden and clog the opening. It's a slight nuisance, but not a big deal. The next time you go to brush your teeth, you just stick the bristles of your dry toothbrush down the hole, and it unclogs, no problem.

This is my favorite toothpaste (tooth powder!).
