KAREX mouthwash

KAREX mouthwash

400 ml

Caries prevention for rinsing with hydroxyapatite

Karex's active ingredient – hydroxyapatite – mimics the natural enamel. Daily rinsing with Karex mouthwash helps to promote the regeneration of weakened enamel areas and the formation of a protective layer. Zinc and xylitol have an antimicrobial effect. Thanks to its light gel-like consistency, it adheres well to the tooth enamel to boost the effect of the Karex toothpaste. As such, the Karex system comprising toothpaste and mouthwash offers modern caries prevention without fluoride, even with dry mouth.

Karex mouthwash also acts on those areas which are difficult to reach with a toothbrush and can be used each time you brush your teeth-or even inbetween.

Karex mouthwash ingredients and their function

INCI* Function
Hydroxyapatite Hydroxyapatite:
- Remineralisation / regeneration of weakened areas of enamel and dentine
- Biomimetic biofilm management: prevents the build-up of bacteria on the tooth
- Can seal exposed dentinal tubules (on exposed tooth necks) and therefore helps to prevent sensitive teeth
- Forms a protective layer on the surface of the tooth, thereby providing additional prevention against caries
- Protection against acids, e.g. from fruit juice
- Clinically proven prevention against plaque and caries
Xylitol Antibacterial and therefore anticariogenic, also stimulates the flow of saliva
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract Caring ingredients that have a soothing effect on irritated mucosa and inflamed gums
Tetrapotassium Pyrophosphate, Disodium Pyrophosphate Potassium salts: prevent tartar formation
Zinc PCA, Cetylpyridinium Chloride Antibacterial substances: tackle the remaining plaque that is difficult to reach (e.g. on the gumline). Both chemicals are highly substantive. Zinc also combats bad breath.
Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Mild and gentle surfactant (foaming agent): this moistens the surface, distributes the active ingredient in the oral cavity and is also gentle on the mucosa
Aqua Excipient
Glycerin
Propylene Glycol
Provide moisture give the mouthwash its consistency (glycerin is also the main component of many natural vegetable oils)
Sodium Hydroxide Sodium hydroxide sets the pH: Karex mouthwash has a saliva-neutral pH, making it particularly gentle on the teeth as well as the entire oral cavity.
Potassium Acesulfame Flavour carrier
Hydroxyethylcellulose Gives the mouthwash its consistency
Aroma Fresh aroma with menthol and eucalyptol
