Bite&Brush trades fluoride for hydroxyapatite (HA).  Hydroxyapatite is a form of calcium that makes up 97% of your tooth enamel and nearly 70% of the dentine, making it completely biocompatible and non-toxicScientifically it’s been proven to strengthen/remineralise teeth, fight sensitivity, prevent plaque build-up and whiten teeth naturally. 

Hydroxyapatite, is an evolution in dentistry and has been the gold standard in Japan for over 40-years. The Japanese company Sangi Co. Ltd was the first to take an interest in hydroxyapatite, after purchasing the rights from NASA (U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Authority) in 1970. The astronauts, in fact, lost minerals from the teeth and bones in the absence of gravity, and NASA proposed a synthetic hydroxyapatite as a repairing material. 

In the Bite&Brush toothpaste tablets we complemented this powerful ingredient(Ha) with bacteria-fighting xylitol , a gentle scrubbing agent to polish your teeth and mild mint/spearmint flavour to bring you a natural , sustainable , effective toothpaste alternative. 

Plus, there are no plastic microbeads, no plastic tube and zero waste!

Hydroxyapatite – Helps remineralises and strengthens teeth, while reducing sensitivity

Xylitol starves harmful bacteria of their food source, thereby reducing their ability to produce the acids that lead to cavities.

Zinc Citrate – Freshens breath by neutralizing sulphurs.

Peppermint and Spearmint oil– Helps for a refreshing taste, so you smile with confidence!

Calcium Carbonate – Gently clean your teeth without damaging or stripping the enamel

Sodium Cococyl Glutamate – a gentle foaming agent to make your experience as close as normal toothpaste as possible

Bite&Brush was created by Chrismarié Barnardt, a Dental Hygienist from Cape Town, South Africa.  “I noticed that many of my patients moved away from traditional toothpastes due to the fact that many of the ingredients used are not ideal for a healthy body , and also realizing first-hand that most natural toothpaste lack efficacy to maintain optimal oral health.  Tooth decay and gum disease are some of the most common diseases in the world, although it is completely preventable.   I wanted to create an effective, natural and plastic free toothpaste alternative.  Bite&Brush is the first premium toothpaste tablet that contains Hydroxyapatite in South Africa.  The major component of traditional toothpaste is water, with Bite&Brush we took the dry ingredients and compressed it into a tablet, cutting out the need for a plastic tube”.
