I can remember being fascinated as a little kid while watching my father using Caroid to brush his teeth. What are the Caroid ingredients? Does it say on the box or can? Thank you.

Not the same product I used. It was Caroid tooth powder in a white and blue can, by Colgate (I think), or was it Proctor and Gamble. It worked like a charm. Since they quit making it about 15 years ago. my teeth and dental exams are terrible. I have no control over my tartar condition, etc., anymore. Please, make it again!!!!
