The problem, in a nutshell.

The mouth contains billions of beneficial and harmful bacteria. Overgrowth of harmful bacteria causes inflammation, cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.

Scientists. Perfectionists. Humanitarians.

 

Our company was founded by a Stanford-trained microbiologist searching for a way to help her grandmother manage her own oral hygiene. By leveraging her expertise of bacteria behavior and how they respond to environmental stress, she screened hundreds of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) ingredients for their ability to decrease acid and plaque production in saliva.

She identified a combination of ingredients that effectively neutralized the harmful by-products of bacteria, while encouraging health-promoting behaviors. Other findings included sustained reduction in 1. acid production, 2. oral biofilm (plaque), and 3. disease-causing bacteria associated with cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. She patented this combination of bioactive ingredients – calcium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, vitamin B6 and cyclodextrin – and added it to a convenient, rapid-melt lozenge.

During her research and development, she gained a full understanding of just how severe the oral care crisis is here in the U.S. and around the world. As a result, she created our dental care-focused biotechnology company with an overarching goal of improving quality of life of all people by developing groundbreaking supplemental oral care products that balance oral ecology for health.

Our difference

A paradigm shift.

Many approaches to managing oral bacteria use highly toxic solutions that indiscriminately destroy most of the bacteria in your mouth. However, there are many health benefits provided by beneficial bacteria. Our breakthrough microbial technology empowers your “guardian” bacteria to out-compete harmful bacteria in the oral environment and balance your oral ecology.

No nonsense.

pH balanced, fully consumable and free of harmful chemicals and sulfates. All our bioactive ingredients have over 40 years of safety testing. We do not test our products on animals.

Efficacy is essential.

Over four years of data and case studies have demonstrated our approach to biofilm management to be a fast, safe, and effective means of addressing problematic oral bacteria. Customer feedback has included reduced tissue inflammation, improved pocket depths, and decreased tooth sensitivity.

Created with pride.

Our products are manufactured in a certified cGMP facility with the highest quality standards. We go the extra mile to responsibly source our ingredients and have them quality tested by a separate and independent, 3rd party laboratory for safety and purity.
