For centuries, humans have used clays, externally, or internally, for maintaining body health. Bentonite clay, also known as “healing clay,” belongs to the very soft group of minerals called Montmorillonite; it is a naturally occurring element that is cultivated from the alteration of crystal particles from volcanic ash. From the skin, to the digestive system, and within the oral cavity, its benefits are numerous – it improves digestion, clears up skin problems, strengthens the immune system and is a powerful detoxifying agent.
Plaque is tough, sort of like the big, bad bully at Cavity High School. When plaque adheres to teeth for a long time, it can lead to decay. We proudly incorporate natural, Calcium Bentonite Clay in our toothpaste in order to combat plaque removal. Bentonite clay plays the role as an abrasive in the oral cavity, helping remove adhered plaque on teeth. Like charcoal, it may also help raise pH of your mouth, making it more challenging for bacteria to grow.
P.S. Ever wondered why our toothpaste has a grey color? You can thank Mr. Bentonite.
Sugar! Sugar! Sugar! Except it isn’t real sugar!
You can think of Xylitol as a sugar-substitute, its structure allows them to stimulate the taste receptors for sweetness on your tongue. Categorized as a sugar alcohol, it is found in small amounts in many fruits and vegetables and is therefore considered natural. Our toothpaste’s sweetness can be partly attributed to our added Xylitol, cause who wants a totally bitter toothpaste (…Ew).
Cavities, aka tooth decay, arise when acid levels in the mouth begins to demineralize tooth structure. Acid is created when bacterial inhabitants of the mouth, begin to metabolize sugar they ingest and ferment lactic acid as the result. Without this sugar, bacteria would have a hard time producing enough acid, which in return leads to a healthier oral cavity.
Xylitol’s most interesting story comes when it doesn’t allow any metabolization of sugar, rather metabolization by bacteria leads to self-destruction!
Now let’s get sciency… bacteria in the oral cavity, such as Streptococcus Mutans, ingest Xylitol into their cell-cycle. Xylitol is then converted into xylitol-5-phosphate via enzyme Phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP). This new metabolite formed results in development of intracellular vacuoles. Vacuoles release hydrolytic enzymes which ultimately lead to bacterial cell-membrane degradation, which then contributes to its own death.
Vegetable glycerin, is a clear liquid typically made from soybeans or coconut oils. Glycerin is a humectant, it holds onto water and prevents our toothpaste from drying out in the tube, which also helps prevent dryness in the mouth during brushing. It can help reduce bacterial activity by reducing the available water activity and therefore has a protective action against tooth decay. Glycerin does not damage gums or tooth enamel.
Our Vegetable Glycerin is Non-GMO, UPS pharmaceutical grade and made from 100% palm-oil that is RSPO Certified. The RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil), is a non-profit that works with sectors of the palm industry to develop and implement global standards for sustainable palm oil. RSPO has developed a set of environmental and social criteria which companies must comply with in order to produce Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO). Certification is an assurance to the customer that the standard of palm oil production is sustainable, causing zero harm to the environment or society. We promise to deliver you the best certified Vegetable Glycerin to keep your toothpaste fresh and never leaving your mouth feeling dry.
Found near the Himalayan foothills, Himalayan Pink Salt is a rock salt mined from the Punjab Region of modern Pakistan. The coolest pink salt you’ve ever seen, the color can be attributed to the 80+ trace amount of minerals it includes such as potassium, magnesium, calcium and many more. We remain natural by picking Himalayan Pink Salt over traditional table salt due to it being a more balanced and healthier choice. Himalayan Pink Salt is one of the purest salts you can find, its typically mined by hand; this is very different from table salt that involves a great deal of unnatural interference. Table salt is very heavily processed, eliminating most of its minerals, leaving about 97.5-99.9% Sodium Chloride. Meanwhile, a high-quality unrefined salt like Himalayan sea salt may be only about 87 percent sodium chloride and a bucket list of beneficial minerals.
Salt can help your teeth and gums in a few ways. First, salt helps stimulate the production of saliva in the mouth. As the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research notes, saliva contains several minerals that help strengthen the enamel on the teeth, including phosphate and calcium. The increased flow of saliva can help protect the teeth from acids and bacteria that cause decay. Salt can also help reduce inflammation and swelling in the gums, thus minimizing gingivitis symptoms. In addition, salt incorporated into toothpaste has shown to a disinfecting effect, being a slight abrasive in helping remove adhered plaque from teeth.
We love our Himalayan Pink Salt, and we hope you do too
We all know that the grass is in fact always greener underneath the coconut tree! I mean, lets be blunt here, who doesn’t like coconuts?! We could rave on for hours about coconuts here, but we’ll try to keep it simple.
Most people use coconut oil for its systemic health benefits; there is a growing body of evidence that coconut oil can be a boost in good cholesterol, reduce chances of heart disease and high blood pressure, aids in liver health, and many more. At OraBliss, we use coconut oil that is simply fresh. Our oil is cold-pressed from Non-GMO, organic coconuts to deliver the richest flavor and aroma that is nutrient rich and naturally delicious.
Coconut Oil aids in attracting bacteria in the oral cavity, so when you spit out the toothpaste, out goes the bacteria! Coconut Oil is also a natural moisturizer which helps in keeping your mouth moist. In addition, coconut oil contains a natural acid called Lauric Acid. Lauric Acid has shown to have antimicrobial effects that can help in reducing plaque-induced gingivitis.
Essential Oils are compounds that are extracted from different components of plants, including roots, stem, leaves, flowers or fruits. The history of essential oils dates back to folk medicine; the earliest recorded mention of the techniques and methods used to produce essential oils is believed to be that of Ibn al-Baitar (1188–1248), an Andulusian pharmacist, botanist, physician and scientist. Throughout the world, essential oils are used in aromatherapy, a form of alternative medicine in which healing effects are ascribed to the aromatic compounds that they contain.
We are proud to include 7 different essential oils in our products: Spearmint, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Thymol, Clove, Lavender and Tea Tree. Each of our essential oils are 100% pure and therapeutic grade, being hand-selected each to provide a calming and soothing effect. Our essential oils will keep your breath feeling fresh while fighting germs
Peppermint Oil (Mentha Piperita) is one of the most widely used essential oils in oral care products, widely due to its antibacterial, antifungal, and biofilm-inhibiting properties – this provides a therapeutic benefit treating periodontitis, gingivitis and halitosis.
Spearmint Oil (Mentha Crispa) is also widely used in oral care products, it is extracted from the same genus of plants as Peppermint and also shares a wide array of antibacterial properties.
Clove oil (Syzygium Aromaticum) has shown to have antifungal, antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Clove is specifically used in many dry socket pastes in order to relieve pain and discomfort due to the complications of “dry socket,” this is due to its analgesic (pain-relieving) properties.
(Dry Socket, also known as alveolar osteitis, is a painful complication that sometimes happens after having a tooth extracted; it arises when the blood clot at the site of the extraction fails to develop, causing discomfort and pain at the site.)
Eucalyptus Oil (Eucalyptae) is an anti-inflammatory germicide that helps soothe receding gums and helps stimulate growth of healthy, new gum tissue.
Thymol (Thymus Vulgaris) is identical to the thymol found in natural thyme and ajowan herb. Thymol is known to have strong antifungal effects in the oral cavity. Candidiasis, also known as Oral Thrush, is the most common fungal disease of the oral cavity caused by fungus Candida Albicans. Thymol has shown to have a fungicidal effect on Candida species within the oral cavity, reducing the risk of infection.
Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca), has proven to have many beneficial uses, it also shows great promise in the oral cavity. These include therapeutic properties for periodontal disease, apthous ulcers, caries prevention and toothaches.
Lavender Oil (Lavandula) is capable of altering emotional states and reducing mild anxiety. It has been reported to be useful in reducing anxiety in dental patients when used in the waiting area. It has even shown to reduce the pain of needle insertion. Don’t hesitate to take a whiff of our Lavender Oil infused Mouth Rinse right before going for a dental check-up!
Baking soda! I got Baking Soda! I bet if you open up your fridge, you’ll find one of these bad boys laying around somewhere. Baking Soda inclusion in oral care products have been around for more than a 100 years, showing one of the most consistent beneficiaries in most oral care products.
Tooth decay starts to initiate when the pH levels of the mouth start to fall below the critical pH level of 5.1-5.5, this is when plaque starts to break down while dental tissues start to demineralize, initiating decay. Baking soda is essential in acting as a buffer within the oral cavity, attacking acidic levels and raising the pH to healthier levels of homeostasis, which aid in halting cavity initiation. In addition, baking soda has shown to be effective in stain removal and whitening as compared to non-baking soda containing products.
Aloe Vera is a succulent plant species belonging to the Liliacaea family. In systemic terms, it contains various properties such as immunomodulatory, antiviral and anti-inflammatory in nature. Aloe Vera plays a significant role in dentistry in the treatment and reducing the risk of lichen planus, submucous fibrosis, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, alveolar osteitis, and periodontitis. Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory properties, reducing inflammation and promoting healing of affected gum tissues – due to influencing the growth of mannose-6 phosphate, an anti-inflammatory agent. In addition, Aloe Vera contains anti-inflammatory compounds called anthraquinones, which have the ability to kill and remove harmful micro-organisms.
Our Aloe Vera is made of premium quality 99.5% purified Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, organically grown in rich fertile soil. Our selection is certified for purity and potency by the International Aloe Science Council.
Bad Breath Be Gone! Zinc Chloride is a natural mineral that is purified Zinc from Earth. One of the best benefits of Zinc in mouthwash is its effect on eliminating Halitosis (bad breath)! Bad Breath is primarily the result of microbial metabolism of amino acids, producing smelly volatile sulfur compounds (VSC’s), such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), methyl mercaptan (CH3SH) and dimethyl Sulfide (CH3SCH3). Zinc is able to diminish bad breath due to its strong affinity for thiol groups present in VSC’s, binding and thus reducing the volatile activity of these compounds. In addition, Zinc has shown to inhibit acid metabolic production that may reduce the growth of plaque-bacteria and so decreasing plaque growth.
OraBliss uses aqueous Zinc Chloride in our products that have no artificial flavorings or preservatives. Our Zinc products are free of Magnesium Stearate and Talcum Powder, undesirable and potentially carcinogenic agents that are eliminated during the manufacturing process. Get your Zinc on!
