Xylitol mints made by Peppersmith are sugar-free; instead they contain a naturally occurring sweetener Xylitol which actively reduces plaque and tooth decay. Xylitol inhibits bacteria growth and prevents acid attacks. It also reduces the bacteria’s ability to stick to your teeth so plaque is easier to remove. Peppersmith mints are made with high quality real mint and no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.
Oxyfresh mouthrinse – as well as containing Xylitol (the benefits of which are explained left), this rinse contains peppermintoil to provide a soothing and cooling effect for the tissuesas well as a great taste. Another important ingredient is Oxygene which safely and completely destroys odours that cause bad breath at their source!
