Marina, how is that tooth powder with whitening? I once used a natural-ish toothpaste that I swear increased the tea and coffee stains!

If they sold their brand name and manufacturing rights to say, Shimano, I'd predict that their process would lose integrity and product quality would quickly decline. But they're not going to do that. They're too damned british and proud. And for good reason.

Speaking of tooth care—I got interested in tooth remineralization and came across this link: http://users.sa.chariot.net.au/~dna/toothpaste/index.htm Seems crazy at first, but when I did more research on the way commercial products (like Recaldent) are supposed to work, it sounds like they're trying to bind calcium and phosphate into the tooth enamel using casein—and that's what theoretically would happen if you're brushing with a combination of phosphate (from spent wood ash) and calcium and casein (from kefir). Can anyone else give feedback about if this would actually work?

toothpastes had to become more abrasive once fluoride was added: the "tartar control" was perhaps a correction for the "cavity protection".

I feel that the companies who make the products I listed are worth supporting with my dollar because of their quality product, regardless of the size of the business. I'm sure it takes a huge corporation to produce anything made out of silicone, but that doesn't make that product one that people should avoid.....in my obnoxious opinion.
