The ethos of My Magic Mud is to use only the best, wholesome ingredients Mother Earth has to offer; the kind you’d find at a local farmers market, hand crafted with love.
Below is a comprehensive list of ingredients that we’ve chosen for our natural oral care products. The standard by which our founder, Jessica Arman, determines which ingredients to use, is whether she’d allow her own children to brush with them.

Ingredients and their benefits for natural oral care:
Activated Coconut Shell Charcoal
Activated Coconut Shell Charcoal whitens teeth through a process called “adsorption” as opposed to “absorption”. It literally pulls out strains from the pores of the teeth. What we see as a solid stain is actually residue from food or beverages trapped in tiny holes that naturally form in our teeth enamel. The charcoal fits inside these pores and is negatively charged.

Bentonite Clay pulls impurities, toxins, and bacteria from the mouth. It remineralizes the teeth. The minerals that are present in our teeth get striped away because of the food we eat, the water we drink, and the environment. The clay is filled with minerals. The minerals get deposited back into the teeth which helps rebuild the enamel. It removes plaque with every use. For more information about our bentonite clay, please click here.
Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade-Organic
Diatomaceous Earth is a sedimentary mineral rock. It’s the remains of algae that once thrived in the ocean. The algae died and formed massive deposits. Diatomaceous earth was originally mined as tooth powder. It’s made up of 85% Silica, which is an essential mineral required by tendons, cartilage, blood vessels and promote healthy bones. The abrasive action is gentle enough for teeth, but strong enough to remove plaque and tartar. It also promotes healthy tooth enamel which prevents tooth decay and receding gums.

Tea Tree Oil-Organic
Tea Tree Oil is an essential oil from the tea tree, also known as the melaleuca. Don’t let the name confuse you. This tree has nothing to do with the tea you drink. It was actually named by British sailors who were looking for something to drink to replace their missing tea. The melaleuca has been used for centuries for its antiseptic, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties. For more information about our tea tree oil, please click here.
Coconut Oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts. It’s a natural tooth whitener and detoxifies the mouth and pulls out impurities. The coconut oil relieves gum and tooth sensitivity while it removes plaque. For more information about our coconut oil, please click here.
Grapefruit Seed Extract
Grapefruit Seed Extract is a liquid derived from the seeds, pulp, and white membranes of grapefruit. The benefits include its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties which help your oral health while naturally preserving the quality of our paste and powder.

Sweet Orange Oil-Organic
Sweet Orange Oil is an essential oil produced inside the rind of oranges. You’ve probably already heard of the powerful cleansing ability of this oil which is often used as a natural household cleanser. Orange oil is also anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antimicrobial. It is also an antioxidant. For more information about our sweet orange oil, please click here.
Rosemary Oilis produced by harvesting the leaves and using a steam distillation process to extract the pure essential oil. We use it because of its natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. For more information about our rosemary oil, please click here.
Vanilla Extract comes from the fruit of a special orchid flower originally found only in southern Mexico. The extract is removed from beans that grow in long skinny pods. Vanilla is, of course, well-known around the world for its wonderful and easily recognizable flavor and smell. But vanilla has anti-inflammatory and antioxidants properties.

Xylitol, despite its unusual name, is the only known “tooth-friendly”, naturally occurring sweetener. It is a sugar alcohol which has fewer calories than table sugar and digests very slowly if at all. Xylitol is found in the fiber of many trees, fruits, and vegetables. Xylitol actually prevents the growth of bacteria by blocking their metabolism and is a primary ingredient in many chewing gums that prevent tooth decay. For more information about our xylitol, please click here.
Stevia is a zero-calorie, intensely sweet, and completely natural substitute for sugar. The active compounds of stevia are called steviol glycosides and are up to 150 times as sweet as sugar. By replacing the table sugar, we’re denying an important food source to the bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. For more information about our stevia, please click here.
