About Our Ingredients
Organic Brushing Rinse Ingredients
Water is the ultimate life force and it keeps us going. Since it is the base of all of our products, we want to make sure we are using the best ingredients available. That’s why we use purified goodness.
Regular tap water is filled with harmful substances like chlorine, arsenic, and fluoride. Our water is double filtered and deionized.
Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (1.5%)
This ingredient is a powerhouse. Hydrogen peroxide is water (H2O – two hydrogen molecules and one oxygen molecule) with an additional oxygen molecule attached.
It is the extra oxygen molecule that is the working agent of hydrogen peroxide, more specifically the release of it.
Oxygen is a powerful antiseptic as well as a whitening agent. When hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with ANY organic substance, it will release its oxygen molecules. That is the cause of the foaming.
Organic Aloe Vera
Aloe vera in tooth gels is used to cleanse and soothe teeth and gums. It is equally as effective as toothpaste in fighting cavities, according to the May/June 2009 issue of General Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry’s clinical journal.
Science Daily states that aloe eliminates pathogenic oral micro flora and contains anti-inflammatory anthraquinones that are healing and analgesic.
Dilip George, MDS, co-author of the study, explains that the healing enzymes and polysaccharides come from aloe’s inner fillet and “must not be treated with excessive heat or filtered during the manufacturing process.”
In making the Brushing Rinse, we use 100% pure organic aloe vera inner fillet that has been dehydrated by a unique low-temperature method.
Organic Essential Oils
The Essential Oxygen oil blend is a powerful mix of peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary, cinnamon, lemon, and clove*. This oil blend was chosen for its powerful antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal qualities.
Our oils originate from plants consciously cultivated in rich, bio-diverse soil and fertilized with broad-spectrum organic fertilizers.
*Please keep in mind that clove is not recommended for pregnant women.
