Microfine cellulose fibers are obtained from woody plant parts. It is a long-chain polysaccharide that can polish your teeth ultra smoothly even into the interdental spaces. Therefore, new particles on the tooth surfaces can simply bead off, plaque can hardly arise in the first place. No plaque – no tooth decay!
Sodium bicarbonate, also known as “soda”, together with citric acid (Citric Acid), sets the pH of the tablet to a neutral pH during brushing.
Silica is amorphous silicon dioxide, which acts as a soft brush and helps to remove any soft biofilm.
Amisoft (Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate) is a mild, natural surfactant that consists of vegetable fatty acids and the amino acid glutamic acid isolated from plant proteins. When cleaning, it helps to combine proteins, fats and carbohydrates with water to flush them out while rinsing. In Amisoft, glutamic acid is linked to medium-chain fatty acids.
Sodium lauroyl glutamate should not be confused with the “glutamates” used in the food industry as a flavor enhancer – DENTTABS Toothpaste Tablets are glutamate and gluten free.
And here again exactly from our chemist:
“Glutamic acid is an amino acid, e.g. occurs in relatively large quantities in plants, fish, or meat. However, the amino acid does not occur in isolation but almost exclusively in bound form in proteins. In DENTTABS Toothpaste Tablet, glutamic acid is used as a surfactant called sodium lauroyl glutamate. In this, the glutamic acid is bound to a fatty acid by esterification. ”
Magnesium Stearate is the magnesium soap of stearic acid, a herbal adjuvant necessary for tablet manufacture.
The natural (mint) aroma, together with the stevia extract and the menthol, provides the pleasant freshness of DENTTABS toothpaste tablets, as well as the unmistakably cool “freshness afterwards”.
Xanthan Gum is a natural polysaccharide that is also used as a thickening and gelling agent. In the DENTTABS toothpaste tablets, it ensures the pleasant creaminess after chewing.
Stevia (Stevioside) is a sweet-tasting plant that, together with the aroma and the menthol, provides the good taste. The steviosides are not sugar, but proteins that have a characteristic sweet taste. Therefore, steviosides can also cause no tooth decay.
Citric acid regulates the pH value together with sodium bicarbonate (see above) and stimulates the salivation. The increased salivation causes a faster remineralization of the tooth surfaces.
Sodium fluoride – ‘natural’ only in DENTTABS toothpaste-with-fluoride! It is used for the remineralization of the enamel and can especially help with sensitive tooth necks, but also with incipient caries. Because DENTTABS Toothpaste Tablets are “dry”, it only develops its full effect with the application.
Eugenol is part of the natural mint flavor. Eugenol is also known as a characteristic flavor of cloves.
Because DENTTABS toothpaste tablets are “dry”, means water-free, we don’t need any preservatives and germ-inhibiting substances. DENTTABS Toothpaste Tablets contain neither aluminum nor nanoparticles.
