actives and abrasives in oral care

Gingivitis is a common form of gum disease that causes irritation, redness, and inflammation in the gum area around the base of your teeth. It is important to take gingivitis seriously and treat it promptly as it can lead to more serious gum concerns such as periodontitis and tooth loss. The most common cause of gingivitis is poor oral hygiene. 

ingredients for your smile

Freshstat™ Cetylpyridinium Chloride (CPC ), an antimicrobial active ingredient, is largely used in mouthwashes and antiseptics, working against bacteria buildup. Available in liquid or solid form, CPC demonstrates effectiveness in controlling the bacteria that cause gingivitis.

Abrasives, like clay and calcium carbonate, gently polish and clean bacterial film from your teeth and gums. Jarxotic™ Clays are gentle abrasives and are great for scrubbing your teeth clean without wearing down the enamel. Jarxotic Black Diamond Clay can be used as an alternative to charcoal, a common whitening agent.   Jarxotic Clays are available in a wide range of colors to help customize your formulation.
