All the 100ml (or less) products can safely and legally be taken abroad a plane in your personal handbag.
We use a hygienic plastic coated tube with a large top cover so that the toothpaste can be stored upright saving space.
Ingredients of our toothpaste: We researched a great deal, and we have come out with a careful balance of pure ingredients and some light “chemicals” so that the toothpaste will be safe, and as natural as possible but effective.
Sorbitol: Humectant. They retain water and help maintain a consistent paste-like quality in the toothpaste, preventing a separation of the liquid and solids in the toothpaste.
Silica: A mild abrasive that will not harm the enamel of the teeth We do not use cheap harsh abrasives because tooth enamel never regenerates
Aqua: Distilled water
Sodium Lauroyl sarcosinate: detergent
Pistacia Lentiscus (mastic oil): Nature’s miracle. The unique in the world mastic is a natural product of the Greek island of Chios. It is well known from the ancient times for its therapeutic properties. Scientific research has proved that mastic has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Clinical research has shown that mastic reduces plaque and drastically prevents the formation of new plaque offering excellent tartar control and at the same time it prevents tooth decay. Mastic oil accelerates the healing of mouth ulcers and due to its antimicrobial and antifungal properties, it prevents stomatitis and mouth infections.
Mastic oil gives a pleasant and long-lasting fresh breath. It even possesses some painkilling properties in case the teeth are affected by decay.
Xylitol: a non-sugar sweetener with a pleasant taste, which reduces levels of cariogenic (decay causing) bacteria in the mouth and enhances remineralization. It actually neutralizes the acids that cause bacteria.
Xanthan gum: A thickener that creates the texture of toothpaste
Titanium dioxide: A white coloring agent.
Glycerin: is used to make paste creamy and it sweetens at the same time.
Mentha aquatica: It gives a cool, fresh taste to our toothpaste.
Mel: honey extract
Potassium sorbate: antiseptic agent
Dehydroabietic acid: preservative
sodium benzoate: A preservative so that the toothpaste would not have to be refrigerated.
We do NOT use:
Fluoride* which possibly prevents tooth decay but also has potential harmful effects because it:
- inhibits enzyme system
- causes breakdown in collagen resulting in periodontal degeneration and
- results in dental fluorosis
*Fluoride, in any case, is normally taken in with the water and with the food we consume
We do NOT use “sodium pyrophosphate”, (a tartar-control ingredient) because may cause tooth sensitivity.
We do NOT use “triclosan” which is accussed of causing cancer
We do NOT use “sodium lauryl sulphate”
Most of the toothpastes in the market contain sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) which is potentially harmful. It acts as a detergent, an emulsifier and a wetting agent with the following potential harmful effects since it:
- Can irritate oral membranes,
- causes protein denaturation, resulting in Canker Sores and Allergic Stomatitis
- dissolves enamel mineral and
- can be retained in the eye, brain, heart and liver.
Due to the above adverse effects we do NOT use Lauryl sulfates. Instead, we use an equally effective detergent (Sodium Lauroyl sarcosinate) which is much better and it is not accused of adverse effects.
Mastic oil replaces the action of the above ingredients safely and more effectively.
Our products are not tested on animal and they do not contain any ingredients derived from animals.

A 1985 study by the University of Thessaloniki discovered that mastic can reduce bacterial plaque in the mouth by 41.5%
