Have you heard of miswak toothpaste before?
Dating back to the Babylonian empire, humans have used miswak sticks (the toothbrush tree) to clean their teeth for thousands of years! Of course, it isn’t found in regular toothpaste anymore, but miswak paste can be incredibly effective.
Even the World Health Organization recommends miswak for oral hygiene.
The benefits of Miswak
Miswak stems contain natural substances like trimethylamine, vitamin C and flavodine. These substances act as a kind of natural toothpaste to improve your oral health.
1. Cleans the teeth
Miswak contains silica, which is a gentle abrasive. This helps to clean food debris off your teeth and gums!
2. Prevents gingivitis (Gum problems)
Found in miswak paste, tannic acid and trimethylamine help to prevent gingivitis. Gingivitis refers to gum inflammation and typically happens due to a bacterial infection.
Bacteria cause most gum infections. That’s where miswak paste can help!
Miswak contains safe and natural amounts of alkaloids and sulfur, which are good at killing off bacteria.
4. Prevents cavities
Miswak contains a safe resinous substance. This resin protects tooth enamel, strengthens your teeth and prevents cavities.
5. Prevents bad breath
Miswak also contains oils that produce a distinctive aroma, driving away bad breath. These natural essential oils can also balance your mouth’s pH.
If you’re currently pregnant and looking for a way to deal with bad breath, miswak paste could help you do the trick.
6. Cures mouth sores
Do you have mouth sores or ulcers? Miswak contains Vitamin C, which repairs damaged tissue and heals your ulcers quickly.
7. Prevents tartar
Additionally, the chloride content in miswak prevents the build-up of tartar in your mouth.
This can help to protect your teeth from problems as you age.
8. Miswak contains good chemicals found in ordinary toothpaste too!
A single miswak stem can contain loads of good chemicals found in ordinary toothpaste, such as:
- Sodium bicarbonate removes food debris and prevents plaque.
- Calcium strengthens your tooth enamel.
- Sterol helps lower cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of heart disease.
Miswak can have countless benefits for your oral health. Apart from being a natural ingredient, it contains loads of great chemicals that help preserve and protect your teeth and gums. In addition, studies show that miswak paste can be even more effective than ordinary toothpaste.

Why we think this miswak toothpaste is great
We think it’s great because we use natural ingredients like miswak, allantoin and mint!
With this ingredient combination, we’ve specially developed a toothpaste that cleans your teeth well.
Through our countless studies and lab-testing in Singapore, we’ve also developed a beautiful, crisp flavour that refreshes your breath and lets you start the day on a lovely note.
Additionally, we’ve taken special care to ensure that our toothpaste is safe for Mamas. By substituting chemical fluoride for Miswak, your baby is significantly protected from the effects of fluoride poisoning.
Our toothpaste is specially developed for pregnant Mamas (though anyone can use it!). That means we’ve stuck to the highest degree of ingredient safety and quality, ensuring that all our ingredients are as safe and natural as possible.
Finally, we don’t use any artificial dyes or colouring! For example, our toothpaste is green in colour thanks to chlorophyll’s natural colour, which is an ingredient in our toothpaste.
