Caries prevention with BioHAP – for the special needs during the mixed dentition phase

  • BioHAP and other calcium sources effectively protect primary and permanent teeth against caries
  • Caries prevention also for children wearing braces
  • Strengthens tooth enamel against acid attacks
  • Allantoin soothes and protects irritated gums
  • Contains no fluoride and no sodium lauryl sulfate
  • Recommended age: From 6 years on

Junior Karex Toothpaste contains BioHAP – the substance our teeth are made of – as its main active ingredient. This is along the lines of nature and thus follows a biomimetic mode of action. BioHAP is the abbreviation for the scientific term “biomimetic hydroxyapatite”.

The formulation, i.e. composition, of Junior Karex Toothpaste with BioHAP cleans primary and permanent teeth gently and thoroughly at the same time. Through daily brushing, even small defects in the enamel can be repaired by the active ingredient BioHAP and a protective layer is formed on the teeth. This protective layer makes it more difficult for bacteria to adhere to the teeth.

At the same time, BioHAP as a source of calcium, effectively prevents caries. In the event of an acid attack, calcium is released and the teeth are protected from an attack by caries bacteria (remineralization). Junior Karex Toothpaste thus protects against caries even in hard-to-reach places, e.g. for those wearing braces. Usually, plaque cannot be removed sufficiently around the braces.

The formula was especially developed for the needs of older children with primary and permanent dentition. Allantoin soothes and protects irritated gums caused by teeth coming through and wearing braces.

Application: 2x daily

JUNIOR KAREX ingredients and their function

During the development of Junior Karex Toothpaste, special care was taken to use only the most necessary ingredients. Junior Karex Toothpaste contains BioHAP as the main active ingredient and is fluoride-free and contains no sodium lauryl sulfate.

INCI English name Function
Hydroxyapatite Hydroxyapatite Clinically proven main active ingredient: - Remineralization/regeneration of areas attacked in enamel and dentin - Biomimetic biofilm control: Prevents bacteria from adhering to the tooth, thus preventing caries and gingivitis - Forms a protective layer on the tooth surface that provides additional caries protection - Protects against acid attacks, e.g. from fruit juices (“erosion protection”) - Tooth-related: Safe if swallowed - Clinically proven plaque and caries protection (including for those wearing braces)
Xylitol Xylitol Antibacterial and therefore also anticariogenic
Hydrated Silica Hydrated (“enriched with water”) Silica High quality abrasive for Junior Karex Toothpaste: Along with brushing provide mechanical plaque removal Interesting note: There are many different cleaning substances which are called Hydrated Silica. However, these differ significantly in their quality and hardness and thus in their efficacy.
Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate Mild and skin-friendly surfactants (foaming agents): Wet the surfaces, distribute the active ingredients in the oral cavity and at the same time, are gentle on the mucosa.
Dicalcium Phosphate Dihydrate Dicalcium Phosphate Dihydrate (calcium phosphate) Source of calcium and phosphate, provides additional protection for primary and permanent teeth
Calcium Carbonate Calcium Carbonate Source of calcium that is also present in human saliva. Calcium carbonate buffers (weakens) acids.
Glycerin, Sorbitol Glycerine, Sorbitol Moisturisers to help Junior Karex Toothpaste maintain a pleasant consistency.
Sodium Hydroxide Sodium Hydroxide Ensures that Junior Karex Toothpaste maintains a saliva-neutral pH.
Aqua Water Excipient
1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol Mild organic moisturising ingredients that also provide toothpaste consistency.
Silica, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Saccharin Silica, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Chloride (table salt), Sodium Saccharine Provide consistency and firmness of Junior Karex Toothpaste.
Allantoin Allantoin Soothes inflamed and irritated gums
Aroma, Limonene Flavouring, limonene aroma Tested by children for children – aroma contains menthol.
