Natural sodium bicarbonate helps neutralise harmful plaque acids. / It also stimulates salivation to promote self-cleansing and reduce the formation of tartar. Salt Toothpaste was originally developed in consultation with doctors and dentists. The result is a valuable dental preparation made from only natural substances. Its effective cleansing action is immediately obvious, as is its long lasting freshness / It also has a very beneficial action on both teeth and gums / Due to the osmotic action of the concentrated salt solutions the saliva flow is increased, assisting in the washing away of decay-producing residues. The increased saliva flow produces a self-cleansing action which hinders the formation of tartar, the forerunner of plaque and the subsequent susceptibility to caries. Salt Toothpaste is slightly alkaline and neutralises caries-promoting acids, particularly after meals / Half an hour after cleansing the teeth the normal pH is restored. The slightly salty taste is complemented by a mixture of essential oils for long lasting freshness. Soothing Myrhh and Krameria, together with horse chestnut bark extract and aesculin for its astringent, toning action, are included for gum health.
