I received product samples in exchange for an honest review, however my opinions are 100% my own.
February is National Children’s Dental Health month. Have you ever thought about what is in your children’s (and your own) toothpaste or mouth wash?
To be honest I never really thought much about my toothpaste and what it might have in it until I started moving towards a more natural lifestyle. It’s been a long journey but little by little my family has started using as many organic and/or more natural products as possible. I started making changes to the things we use every day, switching out the bad products for better ones….and the first area I worked on was our personal care items like shampoo, soap and toothpaste. I started looking for a toothpaste that would be better than the usual and was given the opportunity to try out the CloSYS line of oral care products.
What is the CloSYS Oral Health System? This system is made up of Alcohol-Free Oral Rinse and the CloSYS toothpaste which is available in both fluoride or fluoride free, and the CloSYS Fresh Breath Oral Spray.
CloSYS products contain the patented Clorastan which is stabilized chlorine dioxide formulated to maintain oral wellness. The Clorastan impedes plaque formation, oxidizes volatile compounds and kills harmful bacteria that cause bad breath and irritate the gums. CloSYS kills 99.9% of bacteria in 10 seconds and prevents their re-growth. It doesn’t just cover up bad breath with strong flavors. It actually takes care of the problem altogether!
So what is Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide? It is a buffered, water based solution that contains chlorine dioxide gas in sodium chlorite. When in the mouth, the solution is naturally activated by the saliva, creating a very small and safe amount of chlorine dioxide. It is also activated by motion-such as tooth-brushing, and the pH of the mouth when it becomes acidic, due to the consumption of food and beverages. Once released, the chlorine dioxide kills bacteria associated with the build-up of plaque, permeates and disrupts harmful biofilms, and kills the pro-inflammatory infectious bacteria that are associated with gum disease and more.
What makes CloSYS better? CloSYS products kill harmful bacteria quickly without killing off healthy tissue cells and without harming healthy bacteria that is important to digestion and a healthy mouth.
CloSYS products do not contain gluten or sulfates (foaming agents) which are found to irritate the oral tissue. They also do not contain triclosan, which is now banned in Europe due to safety concerns.
CloSYS toothpaste is very low in abrasivity making it ideal for those with sensitive teeth, oral sores/ulcers, or worried about maintaining their tooth enamel.
The oral health rinse actually helps maintain fresh breath for eight hours or more after use and reduces indicators of gum disease!
What did we think of these products? My whole family was very impressed with the CloSYS line of products. The toothpaste has a mild minty flavor that works well for both kids and adults. We all loved how clean and fresh our mouths felt after brushing our teeth with this toothpaste.
We also tried the Alcohol-Free Oral Rinse and loved it. One thing that is different about this rinse is that it comes in two options….unflavored with Flavor Control option for those that like to add their own level of taste or in JustRIGHT Mild Mint flavor. I like just a hint of mint in my mouth wash and you really can’t find a mouth wash like that anywhere else but with CloSYS. We all loved how gentle this mouth rinse is! It simply cleans your mouth with no burn whatsoever! I loved the plain, unflavored rinse just as it was because it left my mouth feeling clean and fresh with no overpowering taste afterwards. I also tried the Flavor Control option and this allowed me to add just the right amount of mint to my rinse. If you love a nice minty taste, then the JustRIGHT Mild Mint is for you. It’s perfect without going overboard on the mint. No matter which flavor you choose, you’ll be impressed with how clean your mouth will feel and how fresh your breath will be long after using it.
We also sampled the Fresh Breath Oral Spray and have decided never to leave home without this product. I love to drink coffee, but hate having the dreaded coffee breath! This Fresh Breath Spray eliminated that problem for me and saved me from many embarrassing moments when I wasn’t at home and couldn’t brush my teeth again. My whole family tried this and loved how long it kept their breath fresh! The flavor is not over the top strong either, which again, is a big plus for me.
Overall, we loved the entire line of CloSYS products and will continue to use them in our home. CloSYS offers a better, higher quality oral health system that I am sure you and your family will love. These products are available without a prescription and you can pick them up at your local CVS or Walgreens, or online as well.
