Ingredient focus – Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an amazing ingredient and has been found to be beneficial for dental and oral health in several ways:

  1. Reducing harmful bacteria: Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which has antibacterial properties. When used as a mouthwash (in a process known as oil pulling), it can help reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in the mouth that can cause gum disease and tooth decay.
  2. Fighting bad breath: Because coconut oil can help reduce the amount of bacteria in the mouth, it can also help combat bad breath.
  3. Preventing tooth decay: Coconut oil has been found to be effective in fighting the Streptococcus mutans bacteria, which is a major cause of tooth decay.
  4. Promoting healthy gums: Coconut oil’s anti-inflammatory properties may help reduce inflammation and swelling of the gums, promoting overall gum health.
  5. Moisturizing and protecting the mouth: Coconut oil can help moisturize and protect the oral tissues, reducing the risk of dry mouth and other oral health issues.

It’s not hard to see why this gorgeously smooth ingredient was a must for our Brightening Antioxidant Toothpaste.
