Carbamide Peroxide (35%). Also known as "urea-hydrogen peroxide," is a water-soluble, white crystalline solid compound which slowly breaks down into hydrogen peroxide. This is the main ingredient that works to whiten your teeth. We chose Carbamide Peroxide over Hydrogen Peroxide because it breaks down slowly which means it continues to work even after you have completed your 10-15 mins teeth whitening session. Our clinical trials showed less chance of sensitivity using Carbabmide Peroxide over Hydrogen Peroxide.
Glycerol or Glycerin (21%). AKA: glycerol and glycerin— is a colorless, odorless, viscous, and hygroscopic liquid. It's non-toxic and non-allergenic. It is made of three carbon atoms, eight hydrogen atoms, and three oxygen atoms, giving it the formula of C3H8O3.
This is also an organic compound that acts as an excellent solvent.
Propylene Glycol (19%). It is used as a skin conditioning agent.
Deionized Water (12.2%). This is water purified by a chemical filtration system that has had its mineral ions such as calcium, sodium, iron, copper, chloride, and bromide removed. Deionized water is extremely purified and slightly better than plain or distilled water.
Potassium Nitrate Fluoride (6%). Is an organic compound known to help reduce tooth sensitivity by calming the nerve fibers in the teeth. The Journal of the American Dental Association states that dental products containing potassium nitrate as an active ingredient work by blocking the transmission of pain from your tooth to your brain.
Carbomer (3%). Is an emulsifier to help stabilize and thicken solutions with different ingredient solubility. Carbomer helps to control the consistency and flow of the product, as well as provide a smooth, silky texture.
Carboxymethyl or Cellulose Gum (2%). Comes from the cell walls of plants. Obtained directly from strains of fibrous plant material. It helps create a creamy or smoothness to beauty products.
Polyvinylpyrrolidone (1%). Used as a binder. It helps the ingredients work together in harmony. This is nontoxic. It is water soluble. It can be mixed with other ingredients to become a disinfectant because of its safe properties to hold ingredients together.
Menthol (0.5%). It is considered very safe. The menthol helps to cool and relieve any possibility of discomfort.
Sodium Hydroxide (0.3%). Serves as an anti-caking agent to avoid clumping. It also helps improve the texture and shelf life of our product ingredients.
