Natural ingredients including sea salt, charcoal and even cocoa are growing in popularity in the oral care market, due to their wide-randing health benefits.
Sea salt in particular has a host of benefits, including keeping oral microbiota in balance, alkalising the oral cavity and neutralising acids.
One company that embraces this natural approach is Olgani, which has always been committed to using only natural and organic ingredients in its oral care products.
With this in mind, they’ve recently introduced new No Paste, No Waste toothpowders. These contain non-abrasive blends of botanical and natural minerals that work together to promote dental health.
The new Olgani Charcoal & Cocoa toothpowder whitens the tooth enamel, prevents sensitivity and supports gum tissue.
Its ingredients include charcoal and turmeric to whiten the teeth, liquorice to prevent cavities, coffee oil to improve blood flow in the gum tissue and vitamin E to support the gum tissue.
It also contains echinacea to stimulate the immune system, cocoa to improve mineral absorption into the teeth and a blend of essential oils to prevent bad breath.
The new Olgani Sage & Wintergreen toothpowder helps to prevent plaque and cavities, freshen the breath and prevent periodontal disease.
It contains green tea to strengthen the gum tissue, liquorice to prevent cavities, gingko biloba to improve blood circulation in the gums, olive leaf to control bacterial and viral infections, goldenseal to control fungal infections and rice flour to polish the tooth enamel.
Olgani also offers a range of natural toothpastes and mouthwashes, all containing natural food-grade ingredients; the unique NutrireB base – a blend of sea salt, rice flour, sesame and coconut oil; powerful healing herbal extracts, and formulas targeting specific problems.
For a toothpaste, choose between the Olgani Detoxifying Charcoal, Mighty Cocoa, Herbal Refresh and Mineral Rich products. The options for mouthwashes are Sage & Spearmint and Clove & Xylitol.
“Our bodies, through our mouths, absorb all the ingredients in the oral care products we use. This is why we should ask ourselves, ’Is it good enough to eat?’” says Olgani founder Olga Niemkiewicz. “When we listen to our bodies, they guide us towards the natural ingredients that will benefit us most.”
