Flavor is used in toothpaste formulations to make the taste and odor of the product appealing during and after use. Different flavor components can give breath‐freshening benefits by masking odors and can provide cooling sensations within the mouth during and after brushing. Flavors can also serve to mask the taste of other ingredients in the toothpaste formulation. Sweeteners, such as Stevia and Xylitol, work together with the flavoring extracts by adding a degree of sweetness to the toothpaste but avoiding the use of fermentable sugars. Xylitol has anti‐caries potential as well as increased salivation effects which flush out bacteria in the mouth.
Perception of flavor is a combination of both taste and smell. Sensitivity to and preference for different basic taste types (salt, sweet, bitter, sour) is known to differ between children and adults.
Most toothpastes and mouth rinses are predominantly mint flavored. Have you wondered why mint is such a popular flavor for dental products?
One of the benefits of having mint in dental products is that it has the ability to mask unwanted flavors. While the powerful ingredients in toothpastes are essential for dental hygiene, they often come with an unpleasant taste. SprinJene Toothpaste natural mint and clove extracts to override the bitterness of these natural ingredients that are nonetheless essential to cleaning teeth.
Fresh breath is a major concern with oral care products. We depend on them to get rid of ‘morning breath’ and to have fresh smelling breath throughout the day and get that squeaky clean feeling that we all love. In addition to combatting bad breath, mint also leaves a cooling sensation in the tongue and gums resulting in a refreshed, soothing feeling just as you have gotten out of bed.
Anyone who’s got a toddler would understand the struggles of getting them to brush their teeth. They would either purse their lips shut and refuse to open their mouths or cry throughout the process. This can become very frustrating for the parents as well as distressful for the child. But if the tooth paste was to have a fun and yummy flavor children could be motivated to brush their teeth happily. According to studies, flavors perceived as pleasant during brushing studies have been linked to increased brushing time, which, in turn, can increase the delivery and efficacy of fluoride from toothpastes. Hence, flavor design for a children's toothpaste is important so as to encourage, rather than to hinder the development of good oral care habits for life.
That is the goal of our team at SprinJene. We have worked very hard to ensure our product line caters to every single person and their special concerns including children.
Therefore, experts at SprinJene toothpaste manufacturers take flavor type, intensity and smell into account when developing flavors for children toothpastes. The choice of flavor type and concentration is important so as to minimize any potential for irritation of oral soft tissue.
The use of fluoride in children’s tooth paste has received a lot of attention due to concerns over ingestion of the products causing fluoride toxicity or fluorosis of the teeth. Therefore a fluoride free range is also available.
