1.The online product catalog does not display the ingredients and there is not much product information available on the website.
2.The product has D&C Red #28. This is an artificial color and most likely banned in Europe.
3.The color would not go away from the tongue and lips even after brushing with baking soda.
I would not recommend this product to anyone and would not buy again.
I was a goal laggard in dental/gum care until I replenished my supply of this stuff! I'd gotten some from a dentist long ago and had found it helpful as a motivator to floss....correctly and regularly. You swish a couple of drops in your mouth after you think you've finished brushing and flossing, and it reveals all the places you've missed...or not, if you happen to be a dental hygienist by day. But it was a wee bottle and when it ran out I was at a loss. I could NOT find this at any retail store (just as I cannot find unwaxed, unflavored floss in 200 yard size pkgs at any store!) so went without until I found it at Butler's site. The bottle I got from them is huge compared to my prior one and was very reasonably priced. I am now back to flossing every day, my teeth are reflecting the change as are my gums, though more slowly. So despite the fact that, when done, I look like a 5-year old who just finished a magenta Popsicle, and with who-knows-what dangers from all the red dyes to which I'm exposing myself, I will continue using this stuff ....always! It works! Now if I could just convince Butler to sell that unwaxed, unflavored 200 yard roll of floss (which they will only sell to dentists), I'd been in teeth-cleaning heaven!
this product is very good, the reason i gave it a 4 star instead of 5 stars is because it takes hours to get rid of the red color off your gums, teeth, and tongue
I think this is a wonderful dental item to help in showing where a person can miss brushing. I was introduced to this product when I was a dental assistant and I really like this product. It took me years to find this product. The internet was great to find this website. You won't be sorry using this product--even though your tongue will be red for a few hours it does highlight the whiteness of your teeth. I truly love this product.
Used this before - it was great! Forwarded this order to my little grandson for his use. I am sure it is helping him to keep his teeth shiny clean!
