Forget everything you thought you knew about what defines a toothpaste. This gray-tinted, foamless toothpowder will seem weird at first — but that’s part of its beauty.
We’re so used to sweet and minty kinds of toothpaste that we don’t even think about whether or not it’s cleaning our teeth as well as it should. When you use the Akamai mineral toothpowder, you have no choice but to think about it! The strong taste from the clove oil might catch you off guard at first — but know that its bitter flavor is pivotal in killing bacteria and preventing plaque buildup.
Plus, it’s great for sensitive teeth — so you can skip the fake stuff in favor of this mineral-packed, all-natural alternative.
Shake off excess water
Dip the top half of your toothbrush in the powder (you don’t need much).
Brush gently and mindfully (we like the Bass method).
Calcium Montmorillonite Bentonite Clay (food grade), Kaolin Clay (non-irradiated), Baking Soda, Himalayan Salt, Fulvic Acid, Essential Oils of Peppermint*, Cinnamon*, Clove*, Tea Tree*, and Anise. (*Certified Organic)
CARE & USAGE
Brushing your teeth is a great time to slow down. If you normally rush, try brushing a bit slower and intentionally focusing on areas that might need special attention. Great for your oral health, easy on your bathroom since it also cuts down on toothpaste splatter.
To recycle your glass jar and metal lid, remove the labels and lid liner first, then put in your recycle bin. Or, wash and reuse it – great in the kitchen or bathroom to store anything.
Unlike other toothpaste you’ve used in the past, this one won’t foam up. Don’t be alarmed at the bitter taste from the essential oils, either. Akamai recommends giving it two weeks to help your taste buds adjust to a big change in your twice-daily routine.

Dental hygiene is so important for overall health. That’s because the bacteria in your mouth can pass into the bloodstream, where it can travel anywhere in your body — and even pass the blood-brain barrier. If you’re using toothpaste that contains unhealthy ingredients or isn’t killing the bacteria in your mouth, your dental health could suffer.
The Akamai mineral toothpowder uses only all-natural ingredients that do a stellar job of killing the bacteria in your mouth. First, it contains mineral-rich calcium bentonite and kaolin clays that are proven to bind with toxins, so you can effectively rinse and spit them right out of your system.
Instead of sweeteners to make the toothpaste more palatable, this brand uses sea salt to make your mouth water. This might seem weird, but when you produce more saliva while brushing your teeth, it can ultimately help cleanse your mouth while improving your gum health.
This toothpowder is unique because instead of simply detoxifying your mouth, it aims to remineralize it, too. The Akamai toothpaste contains a fulvic mineral complex (which is also available separately as a supplement) with over 74 absorbable minerals and vitamins that are often missing from our diets due to modern farming practices, which have stripped these essential ingredients from our food supply. Minerals are essential for making hormones, so it’s important not to have any deficiencies when trying to keep them in balance
