The Dynamic Duo: Black Seed Oil and Zinc. Working together, zinc and black seed oil do a great job protecting your mouth from the growth of harmful bacteria that cause plaque, tartar, bad breath, and gum disease.
Zinc: A Natural Ingredient That Fights Bacteria
Zinc (technically, zinc citrate and zinc oxide) works as a natural antibacterial agent; it helps prevent the growth of bacteria. But it can’t do this job well on its own. That’s where the black seed oil comes in; it helps the zinc stay in your mouth longer.
Antibacterial agents in toothpaste are not uncommon. Many oral care products use synthetic antibacterial agents. We at SprinJene wish to use another approach. Some types of bacteria in your mouth are very helpful to you. At SprinJene, we don’t want to kill the good with the bad; we want to promote a healthy microflora balance for your mouth.
So we’ve found a gentler way to make our toothpaste more effective. Zinc is recognized by the FDA as safe and effective at preventing the growth of bacteria. It stops the problem before it starts, and in doing so, promotes a healthy balance for your mouth. The zinc we use is a naturally occurring mineral found in beans, peas nuts, seeds, and also used in supplements.
But zinc cannot do this bacteria-fighting job alone because it cannot adhere to your teeth and gums so it stays in your mouth after you spit out your toothpaste. That means the effect lasts no longer than your tooth-brushing session.
While some other companies use synthetic polymers to help actives stay in your mouth, we at SprinJene discovered that black seed oil is perfect for the job. It works synergistically with zinc for the health of your whole mouth.
Benefits of Black Seed Oil
A growing number of studies have shown that black seed oil can also offer other benefits, including both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. These can help fight gingivitis (gum disease).
The pure, cold-pressed black seed oil used in SprinJene contains over 40 compounds – including various antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins, and essential Omega oils – that are well researched and widely recognized for their beneficial properties and can help provide protection against cell damage and inflammation.

And since bad bacteria is also associated with bad breath, not only do you keep your gums healthy and keep plaque at bay, you’ll have fresher breath all day.
It’s a natural synergy that promotes optimal oral health and is kind to the environment.
We think that’s something to smile about.
