This toothpaste originates from Korea where the Bamboo Salt is made in the mountains by the Buddhist Monks. The Sea-salt is packed tight into bamboo pipes at the knob joints. Form here it is fired nine times in furnaces which are fired with Pine Tree Resin. Pine Tree Resin is a very light white powder which has along with the Bamboo its own medicinal value. The resin is very light and soft to touch its even lighter than talcum powder. On the ninth time the heat is raised to 2000 deg C then the salt becomes molten a bit like cast iron and steel and it is poured into molds to cool. Then it is crushed into different grades from very course down to fine table salt consistency and powder.
