Ingredients

Antioxidant Ingredients

Combination antioxidants have been shown to act in concert and have a strong synergistic effect compared to single antioxidants.
Phloretin
Phloretin is a polyphenolic compound in the sub-group flavonoids and is mainly derived from apples. It is a potent antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit several types of destructive enzymes. Phloretin is known to adsorb to lipid surfaces, such as cell membranes.
Ferulic Acid
This effective, polyphenolic antioxidant is a substance found in the seeds and leaves of most plants, especially in the brans of grasses such as wheat, rice and oats. Its chemical structure strongly resembles that of curcumin, also a potent polyphenol. Polyphenols are so named because they have multiple phenolic constituents.
Hesperetin
Hesperetin is a polyphenol like phloretin and ferulic acid, but belongs to a different subgroup of flavonoids, the flavanones. It is abundant in citrus fruits and juices. Hesperetin is a powerful ONOO (peroxynitrite) and ROS (reactive oxygen species) scavenger and promotes cellular defense activity in the protection against ONOO-involved diseases.

Other Ingredients

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate
Sodium ascorbyl phosphate is a stable form of Vitamin-C that is particularly suitable for application in the mouth. It is an effective antioxidant that can block the deleterious effects of free radicals, and it promotes the synthesis of collagen. As an additional benefit, particularly for oral hygiene products, sodium ascorbyl phosphate was shown to suppress the growth of several bacteria associated with caries or gingivitis. It inhibited the growth of Streptococcus mutans, in an the principal causative bacterium of caries, and had similar efficacy against Actinobacillus actionomycetemcomitans and Porphyromas gingivalis, two bacteria associated with gingivitis as reported in Analysis of Cosmetic Products May 2007.
Perilla Extract
Perilla is an herb widely grown in Asia with many applications. Perilla leaf and seed extracts are rich in polyphenols, particularly luteolin and apigenin. The extract exhibits strong superoxide scavenging ability, likely the reason for its anti- inflammatory potential. Perilla extract was tested specifically for application in the oral cavity and was shown to inhibit cariogenic and periodontopathogenic bacteria.
Grapefruit Seed Extract
Grapefruit seed extract is made from the seeds and connective tissue of grapefruit. A key constituent is naringenin, a polyphenolic antioxidant of the flavonoid subgrop flavanones and responsible for grapefruit extract’s ability to exert antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant activity. Grapefruit Seed Extract has the ability to raise pH levels of body fluids and to thus create an environment non-conducive for bacteria development.
Hydroxyapatite
Over half the dry weight of human bone, 97% of dental enamel and 70% of dentine is comprised of hydroxyapatite. Natural and synthetic hydroxyapatite have a strong affinity with the human body, and are used widely in orthopedic and dental applications. Within the realm of dental research, hydroxyapatite was shown to improve tooth color, likely due to its ability to adsorb cariogenic bacteria and to remineralize subsurface areas that have been demineralized. A study conducted at the University of Indiana concluded that a paste containing hydroxyapatite reduced the number of days of dental sensitivity following bleaching. Hydroxyapatite, combined with hydrated silica, achieves superior cleaning that will keep teeth bright.
Plasdone
This stain-lifting polymer was tested intensively and shown to lift stains by complexing with compounds that cause discoloration. A series of in vitro studies on HAP disks showed that pastes and rinses with Plasdone achieved results superior to products without it, both with regards to overall brightenss and removal of stains from tea, coffee and red wine. Plasdone is a non-oxidative, non-peroxide and non-abrasive ingredient.
