Tooth Powder: So what is tooth powder? This 19th century toothpaste is similar to what we use today, only in powder form. However, the ingredients in those would be different from what we use today. The main ingredients in tooth powder then included: chalk, magnesium carbonate, cuttlefish bone, antiseptics, detergents, bayberry leaves, myrrh, cloves, or peppermint. Recognize any of these ingredients in your toothpaste at home?
