Glycerin

Made from: Vegetable oils

Benefits:

  • Moisturizes and soothes: Glycerin has hydrating properties that help moisturize the oral tissues, reducing dryness and discomfort.
  • Promotes saliva production: Glycerin stimulates the production of saliva, which plays a crucial role in maintaining oral health by neutralizing acids, washing away food particles, and protecting against tooth decay.
  • Protects against tooth sensitivity: Glycerin forms a protective barrier over sensitive areas of the teeth, reducing sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet stimuli.
  • Lubricates oral surfaces: Glycerin helps to lubricate the oral surfaces, making it easier for the tongue and other oral structures to move smoothly during speech and swallowing.
  • Supports remineralization: Glycerin can enhance the remineralization process by facilitating the absorption of essential minerals into the tooth enamel, strengthening and repairing it.
