Oral hygiene

At Croda we offer a range of surfactants, solvents, solubilisers and stability enhancers within our product portfolio to help develop your oral hygiene formulations. 

Oral hygiene is the practice for ensuring disease and other oral health problems are avoided, through the regular brushing of teeth, and cleaning in between the teeth. It is important that oral hygiene is carried out on a regular basis to enable prevention of dental disease and bad breath.

Oral hygiene market evolution

Growth in the oral health market has widely centred around two main categories: toothpastes and mouthwashes. Accelerated by increased consumer interest in health and wellbeing, and a greater understanding of the contributing factors of dental disease. Oral hygiene is an integral part of consumers' desire to lead a healthier lifestyle. Trends such as claiming several effects including anti-caries, anti-gum disease, anti-tartar, breath freshening, tooth whitening and reduction of hypersensitivity are widely driving consumer choice. Natural and vegan oral health options are also consumer choice driving factors.

Here at Croda, our extensive technical expertise can help you optimise the performance and get the best results out of your formulation development work.
