What is Active Oxygen? Brushing with OxyFresh Lemon Mint Toothpaste releases a significant amount of ‘active oxygen’ into the mouth. Active oxygen has the property to neutralize smelly breath odors and make the anaerobic bacteria harmless. Anaerobic bacteria are harmful microorganisms that can only survive in the dry, sheltered, and oxygen-free areas of the oral cavity such as the tonsils, gum margins, and tongue papillae. By confronting these bacteria with Oxygene and Zinc, it is no longer able to produce bad breath gases, damage the gums or excrete acids that cause caries. Why it’s better: The big difference with other commercial drugstore products is that OxyFresh Lemon Mint Toothpaste is pH-neutral (not acidic) and does not contain any tooth-unfriendly ingredients. Other products often contain ingredients such as SLS, alcohol, menthol, or titanium dioxide. These ingredients can dry out the mouth and cause oral discomforts such as canker sores, damaged oral mucosa, and burning mouth. The ingredients of OxyFresh have a mild pleasant taste, do not bite or sting, stimulate saliva and at the same time contribute to a healthy oral flora. It does not contain titanium dioxide, a substance often used in toothpaste to get a white color, but where there is much uncertainty about whether it is safe.

Why are we a fan of this product?
All Oxyfresh products contain oxygen, of which we have known for a few years what special properties this has. Lisette and Jessica consider this the most important ingredient in toothpaste and mouthwash. Active oxygen neutralizes bad breathing gases and makes bacteria harmless, without negative consequences for the natural household in the mouth. Virtually all other commercial products contain ingredients (such as alcohol, chlorhexidine, and sodium lauryl sulfate, among others) that discolor teeth and can dry out the mouth, making the problem worse.
