The brand is called "Hei Mei" or "Little Dark Sister" -- I think this is a play on Darlie toothpaste...
I bring my own toothpaste to China. Toothpaste not made in China. Want to avoid any chance of brushing my teeth with diethylene glycol.

Tibetan independence activist blogging inside Beijing
The president of Students for a Free Tibet is in Beijing right now, exactly one year ahead of the 2008 Olympics, vlogging and blogging about Tibetan sovereignty and being a general pain in the ass to the Chinese government.
Lhadon Tethong's liveblogging experiment is incredibly ballsy or incredibly foolhardy, depending on how you look at it -- hard to imagine this lasting long before authorities arrest, extradite, or take some other action to stop the activity.
Apparently, she's already attracted a group of official government "escorts".
Incidentally, Ms. Tethong's uncle is the most senior advisor to H.H. the Dalai Lama.permalink | blogs' comments
