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. It stimulates salivation to promote self-cleansing and reduce the formation of tartar.
