What is in No Thrush? I worry about it being a powder, if it is clay based, it is very dangerous to handle in powder form...silica in the lungs does a LOT of damage.


I currently have my product out to a few local folks for testing. Hoping to market it in a year or so.

"(NO THRUSH Proprietary, Patent Pending Ingredients list): All Natural proprietary mix of multiple clays and silicates, salts of copper, iron, oregano powder, and diatomaceous earth."

That's straight from their website.

I'm shocked they are selling that in powder form. If you are using it, PLEASE be extremely careful not to inhale any. I use silicate clays in mine as well, and wear a respirator when mixing it (as is described on the packaging).

I'm more shocked that there doesn't seem to be any warnings on the bottle...this is all I see:

"Do not take internally. Keep away from children. Avoid contact with eyes. Use in well ventilated area. Asthma sufferers may use a mask."

It should simply read: "Wear a mask!"
But both DH and I work in ceramics and mix a lot of powdered minerals and in that industry it is well known you wear a mask or a respirator. I wouldn't expect everyone to know silicates act like a cheese grater on your lungs.

I agree! I work with metallic and ceramic powders, so we take it a step further and always use simple respirators.

I really am kind of shocked that there is nothing similar to a MSDS on this product. Is it because it's considered to be a natural product and not chemical?
