Toothpaste

The most important group of products in the field of oral/dental hygiene is toothpastes. There is a multitude of different products which orient themselves towards specific target groups (children, adolescents, adults) or specific indications e.g. sensitive teeth and gums.

 

The use of medium viscosity Tylose® H-types is recommended as a thickener and binder. With the help of Tylose® H types, the consistency for the filling of the tubes, as well as the final consistency, can be optimally adjusted. Furthermore, the Tylose® H types demonstrate good compatibility with many of the ingredients which are used, such as surfactants and humectants. Due to their non-ionic character, they are especially compatible with cationic anti-bacterial active ingredients, such as ammonium compounds and the commonly used caries prophylaxis amino fluoride.

In Personal and Home Care formulations the most important properties of Tylose® are thickening effect, respectively consistency regulation, stabilisation and high compatibility

with other ingredients such as surfactants.
