Coconut oil may look like an unusual ingredient to fight cavities, but studies have found that this natural antibiotic which is also antibacterial, is excellent in maintaining the strength and health of teeth.
Peppermint oil gives the toothpaste that cold and refreshing taste.
Stevia enhances the flavor without added sugar, has antibacterial action and fights plaque.
