A well-formulated mouthwash is needed to rinse away food missed by brushing, helps fight cavity-causing critters and freshens your breath. Despite their usefulness for oral hygiene, some people have steered clear of them due to the controversy over some commonly used ingredients, so we’ve been particularly careful to choose safe and natural ingredients that have a function other than just an over-powering minty rinse.
Our Moothwash uses new natural technologies such as a Lactobacillus Ferment to control oral bacteria. Each essential oil we use is chosen for its anti-bacterial action including Thyme, Cinnamon, Myrrh, Sage and Clove bud. We also know that we could make the world’s most effective mouthwash, but if it doesn’t taste fresh, nobody will use it. So we use Stevia and a natural flavour, so kids don’t go “Bleeuuh.”
Some things we avoided were alcohol (sorry adults it’s not good to swill that stuff), Benzalkonium Chloride, Parabens….well you get the idea. In fact, rather than give you a list of all the things it’s “free-from” we like to show you everything we put in our products, not just the pretty-sounding stuff.
Mouthwash is no substitute for brushing and flossing as it will not remove food stuck between teeth and gums. But it can be great to freshen up when at work, after that morning coffee or before heading out. So brush, floss and wash! It’s like the gym, not always fun, but you feel great afterwards.
Our Moothwash is also used in Oncology hospitals and clinics across Australia as a gentler alternative for patients following radiation treatment and chemotherapy.
