U.S. Surgeon General's Report
"Saliva contains components that can directly attack bacteria which cause decay, and it is also rich in calcium and phosphates that help to remineralize tooth enamel."
"Saliva contains antimicrobial components, as well as minerals that can help rebuild tooth enamel after attack by acid-producing, decay-causing bacteria."

Published information on Xylitol - safety
Xylitol has been shown to improve breath odor, retard loss of tooth enamel, reduce infections in the mouth and nasopharynx, and relieve dry mouth. It is safe for diabetics and hypoglycemics. Xylitol does not encourage growth of yeast, including Candida albicans. In contrast to ordinary sugar, xylitol increases the absorption of B-vitamins and calcium. Xylitol enjoys wide acceptance in Japan, Finland, and the Scandinavian countries. In the Soviet Union it has been used for decades as a sweetener for diabetics, and in Germany in solutions for intravenous feeding.
Xylitol is a dentist's dream. It reverses all these destructive effects of sugar on oral health. Xylitol is non-fermentable and therefore cannot be converted to acids by oral bacteria, thus it helps to restore a proper alkaline/acid balance in the mouth. This alkaline environment is inhospitable to all the destructive bacteria, especially the worst variety, Streptococcus mutans. It also inhibits plaque formation.
A Note for Animal People: Like chocolate, xylitol is toxic to dogs and cats - we make products without xylitol to ensure your 'pet's' safety.
In the book "Good Teeth from Birth to Death" by Dr. Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., Chemistry and Fluoride Researcher states that bar soap was actually one of his recommendations to good strong teeth.
This is an excerpt from that book: "Reenamelization of the teeth occurs when they are clean. All toothpastes make a barrier of glycerine on the teeth which would require 20 rinses to get it off. A good solution for clean teeth, which I have used for 5 years, is bar soap. Wet the brush, swipe the bar two or three times with it, then brush the teeth thoroughly and the gums gently. Rinse with water three or four times. All oils are washed off the teeth and the gums are disinfected. The bacteria are killed by the soap. The teeth are then ready for reenamelization with calcium and phosphate in the diet. The enzyme adenosine diphosphatase delivers phosphate to the enamel surface. Do not use liquid soaps. Their different composition is harmful to the protoplasm.
(The liquid soap Dr. Judd was referring to was SYNTHETIC liquid soap which in fact does affect the protoplasm. Synthetic soaps are made with chemicals and are actually not soap at all but detergents. Tooth Chips "Spritz" is natural soap and not synthetic in any way. It is not in the same category. Tooth Chips "Spritz" is manufactured from natural and organic ingredients.)
Reenamelization is necessary on a daily basis because the enamel leaches slightly with water as well as the bones over decades leading to holey bones and holey teeth even in the absence of acid attack. Without reenamelization, we could never have good teeth."
Easy to use - simply put a chip on a back molar, bite down and then with a wet toothbrush
begin brushing on the back molar OR place in your brush, wet & continue as usual.

After reading about the benefits of tooth soap at a site that sold tooth soap, I decided to browse around first before buying. I'm so glad I did!First, I loved the idea of the chips, since they are so economical and transport so easily when traveling (not to mention that you don't have to worry about traveling with them as with other cosmetic items!). Your flavors were much more interesting than the other tooth soaps, and your prices much better as well. I also couldn't believe how fast they arrived, and with a little gift of goat milk lotion, no less! I followed the directions and a single little chip worked its magic on my teeth. I'll spread the word. Thanks so much!

In an issue of the Blaylock Wellness Report, "Why Fluoride Is Toxic," Dr. Blaylock reveals the truth about this scary substance.
Dr. Blaylock reveals the link between fluoride and problems ranging from the cosmetic to the catastrophic.
- Dental fluorosis, which leaves your teeth brown and mottled . . .
- Increased bone fractures, devastatingly deadly to the elderly . . .
- Skeletal fluorosis, bony overgrowths that can lead to bone spurs or spinal stenosis . . . or perhaps even cripple you . . .
- Goiter or decreased function of the thyroid gland (pregnant women with low thyroid function run a higher risk for mental retardation in their children) . . .
- Learning and behavioral problems in children (even lowered IQ and brain damage) . . .
- Abnormal, mutated sperm, impotence, lowered testosterone and male infertility . . .
- The malignant bone cancer osteosarcoma (not to mention increased cancer of the lung, bladder and larynx) . . .
- And last, but certainly not least . . .
- Alzheimer's disease and other degenerative brain disease (like Lou Gehrig's and Parkinson's) . . .

Modern toothpaste is a heavy mix of chemicals and synthetics meant to clean, polish and maintain healthy teeth and gums. But are those ingredients safe, or even necessary?
Many people these days live a healthier lifestyle. They reduce their bad fat intake, reduce refined sugar, replace it with stevia (from a sweet herbal plant from Paraguay), Xylitol, an all natural sweetener, derived from corncobs and birch trees, a proven cavity fighter and safe for use by diabetics and hypoglycemics, or cane sugar.Try to avoid heavily processed foods with artificial colours, sweeteners and chemicals (read the book "Hard To Swallow") such as aspartame, neotame, sodium saccharin, splenda, MSG, (Monosodium glutamate, research shows it is a neurotoxin damaging the nervous system or brain, linked to hormonal imbalances, weight gain, obesity and a variety of other health problems. Eat more certified organic vegetables and fruit grown without herbicide and pesticide spraying or radiation, and even clean your house with non toxic-products.
But have you given any thoughts to what you are swishing around your mouth at least twice a day?
It seems that toothpaste is almost as old as teeth and early populations used abrasives like crushed oyster shells, bone and eggshells mixed with flavouring and powered charcoal. Later essential oils of peppermint, spearmint or cinnamon made brushing more pleasant and helped kill bacteria and germs at the same time.
Most commercial toothpaste have ingredients such as SLS (Sodium lauryl sulphate), fluoride, PVMMA copolymer, sodium laureth sulfate , sodium saccharin, artificial colour etc. Let's find out what the ingredients really are:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
An detergent, humectant (moisturizer), emulsifier and foaming agent. Don't get deceived if it says on the label "derived from coconut! It is a combination of lauryl alcohol and mineral sodium sulphate, followed by neutralization with sodium carbonate. Found also in care wash soap, engine degreaser, garage floor cleaners. Degenerates cell membranes and can change genetic information (mutagenic) in cells and damage the immune system. It is reported to cause eye irritation, skin rashes, hair loss, dandruff and allergic reactions. Penetrates your eyes, brain, liver and remains there long term.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate
A ionic, negatively charged surfactant. A compound which reduces the surface tension in water, between water and another liquid, or between a liquid and a solid, classified as a wetting agent. It has ether added and is therefore irritating and toxic.
Derived from hydroluric, made by reacting sulphuric acid with fluorspar, an ore rich calcium fluoride, a hazardous chemical. Researchers have linked to cancer but no one is listening! Especially dangerous for young children who tend to swallow it after brushing their teeth. Many toothpaste contain enough fluoride in a 120m = 4 oz tube to even kill small child! That's why many toothpaste manufacturers include a warning on their labels "Not to use by children under the age of 6 years." Fluoride can corrode the tooth enamel, when swallowed can lead to Chron's disease. It does not reduce cavities and scientists are linking it to dental deformity, arthritis, allergic reactions and approx. 10.000 death each year from cancer. A report indicated that Fluorosis (fluoride poisoning) can result in darkened or mottled teeth, erosion of enamel, compromised bone structure and a host of other problems including learning disabilities, kidney disease and brain lesions. (see also the article "Hidden Fluoride in our food", January 2002 issue, Alternative Medicine Magazine).
A thickener, dispersing agent and stabilizer. It gives a soapy feel, highly irritating to eyes, skin and mucous membrane.
Artificial sweetener( from the dangerous, hazardous Aspartame family), potential carcinogenic, currently being evaluated by National Toxicology Program, mutagenic, toxic or causes adverse reactions. Tests in the 1980s in rats developed bladder cancer, even the FDA (Federal Drug Administration, USA) list it as a possible carcinogen.
Fd & C Blue No. 1
Often used to dye pastes blue, most coal tar derivative are potential carcinogens, cause allergic reactions, teratogen or toxic and has been known to produce malignant tumors at the site of injection and by ingestion in rats.
These are just a few main chemical ingredients you will find in many toothpastes, but there are also other harmful ingredients found in toothpastes that are hazardous to your health. Therefore "READ CAREFULLY ANY INGREDIENTS ON THE LABELS". If you can't pronounce the name of an ingredient, it is mostly a synthetic chemical and don't buy it!

On Remineralization! Yes, Teeth can remineralize through healthy diet which brings healthy saliva to your teeth.
The surface of your teeth has tiny tubes that transport minerals from the saliva into the tooth to build enamel. A healthy, organic diet will ensure that minerals are in your bloodstream. The flow of mineral rich saliva around your teeth enables them to rebuild any weak spot that could develop into a cavity. The only way that the saliva can do it's job is if the teeth have a clean, slick surface. This enables the mineral crystals to build back enamel. Commercial toothpastes sold in stores contain many harmful ingredients, but the major problem is that it gums up the end of the tooth's tubules preventing the minerals from building back your tooth structure daily. This is because commercial toothpastes with the addition of 60% glycerin make a barrier on the teeth which would require 20 rinses to get it off. With our Dental Soap, you just need 3 rinses to get clean, slick teeth!
Tooth ChipTM - Soap for Your Teeth Testimonial:
This stuff is AWESOME! Firstly I was excited to see the no-neem version. Secondly, really fast shipping. I JUST got my package in the mail and had to try it out right away! I didn't think it tasted soapy at all. I loved the way it lathered up. I am so not into flouride, and I've tried the store-bought 'natural' toothpastes without much success (they taste gross and don't seem to clean very well. Plus, even the natural toothpastes have flouride! yuck!) So I've been using the baking soda toothpastes which seem to clean well but are really harsh on my gums. Sometimes my gums even feel irritated after brushing. With the tooth soap, I was able to brush and brush as long as I pleased and my gums were not irritated, in fact it made them feel really good and soothed! I am so glad I found this. I can't wait for my next dentist appointment, I am sure it will be good news! Thank you for making such a great product. I will definitely be back. "Cheap Threads"
What about flouride?
We have been raised to believe that fluoride is good for us. It is even added to public drinking water. Yet, every tube of toothpaste which contains fluoride carries a warning which states something like this: "WARNING: AS WITH ALL FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTES, KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN UNDER 6 YEARS OF AGE. IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY SWALLOW MORE THAN USED FOR BRUSHING, SEEK PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE OR CONTACT A POISON CONTROL CENTER IMMEDIATELY." I copied this quote exactly from a major brand of toothpaste tube - capitol letters and all. There is more interesting information about fluoride (including how and why it has ended up in water supplies and toothpaste) which I won't expound upon here but scientific research exists which shows that fluoride blocks the body's ability to absorb calcium, a mineral which is needed for healthy bones and teeth. Ironically, there it is in toothpaste being promoted as good for teeth.
