Himalaya’s sensitive toothpaste is a herbal formulation that gives you rapid and lasting relief from tooth sensitivity. It contains spinach, which blocks exposed dentinal tubules that are sources of teeth sensitivity. Almond shell extract is an excellent astringent and menthol helps maintain long lasting fresh breath. Key ingredients: Miswak inhibits the build up of dental plaque and is therefore beneficial in the prevention of tooth decay. The herb reduces gum inflammation, prevents gum bleeding and its astringent property strengthens gums. Menthol from mint oils has cooling and analgesic properties which also give long lasting fresh breath. Almond, rich in tannins, has astringent properties that tighten gums. Almond shell contains triterpenoids, flavonoids and phenolics, which possess free radical scavenging properties. Spinach contains natural oxalate compounds, which help in forming phytocomplexes on teeth. This occludes dentinal tubules and blocks the transmission of pain from the surface to the tooth’s nerves. These oxalate compounds produce protective films on the molars and thus, help to prevent tooth destruction. Naturally derived potassium nitrate inhibits pain in hypersensitive teeth through its desensitizing effect on dentinal nerves.
