Q.What is the most important factor in choosing an oral care product?
First is the confirmation of "all ingredients".
Whenever you buy a product that puts in your "mouth", which is the entrance to all your important physical and health needs to build your body and mind,
We recommend that you check the “all ingredients” of each product yourself before making a selection.
You can find "all ingredients" on the Internet and on product packaging.
In many cases, consumers are often distracted by the "non-essential nature of the product."
However, in the world of science, research, and manufacturing, all new research and technological innovations and efforts for safety that are the background of products result in the achievement of "all ingredients".
When selecting a product, it is most important to check the "all ingredients" and determine the essence of the product.
Second is the confirmation of "research background" and "results".
What kind of project members, universities/graduate schools and research institutes are you conducting research (national institutions or private institutions/public competitive institutions with international competitiveness)?
What kind of career and profile does the technology/product have been researched and developed by a researcher (a researcher who has international competitiveness in his/her institution or specialized field)?
What are they studying for?
And does the research/technology have innovation and objective advantages (such as "patents", "papers", "awards", and "newspapers")?
"Research background" and "data", "papers" and "patents", "awards" and "media publications" for each product can be easily searched on the Internet.
In order to select a product, it is important to identify what kind of research institute, researchers, involved members, etc. are engaged in the "research background" and what "results" are obtained as a result.
Thirdly, what kind of newspapers, televisions, and other news media, and public media, such as magazines, handle these research results and products?
Is it a research result or product that has value as news that is treated as an article rather than an advertisement by a reliable news agency or public media?
News reporters receive and exhaust press releases from numerous research institutions and companies every day.
What is reported through a reporter's filter is a major factor for many non-specialty consumers to judge whether research results with new social usefulness or products with unprecedented value.
Fourthly, what kind of medical institution/store is selected and in what countries are they sold and used?
At highly reliable medical institutions and stores such as department stores, there are medical staff and buyers who select products to handle.
They choose various products in the world at their own risk and choose products that patients and customers can proceed with confidence in their hospitals and stores.
With so many things and information overflowing all over the world, there are shops with high-quality stores that consumers can definitely buy here.
It means that the products selected by those medical institutions and department stores are the products that should be recommended to important patients and customers by the filters of discerning buyers who are overlooking the products of the world.
In addition to the official local sale of products in one country as well as in countries around the world, strict approval by the health authorities of each country is required.
The products that are officially sold locally are the products that have been carefully examined in their respective countries and judged to be used as those that contribute to the health of the people.
What kind of medical institution/administrative/public institution, what kind of store department and store are the products selected and handled?
Is it a product that is sold all over the world? And is it a product that is needed by many people around the world?
For many consumers who do not have specialized knowledge, it is important to keep calmly aware of the handling and sales results of the product in order to distinguish it from other products in the world, the essence of the product, the superiority of research and technology, and the product to choose. It will be a factor to judge.
Finally, it is confirmation of "sociality".
Whether the product/business depends on the selection and is good not only for yourself but also for society and others, is it a product that gives priority to human health and environmental consideration, is it a product for mere commercial purposes, or is social It is important to check if the product you are working on and so on.
We are now in an era where the actual conditions and management attitudes of the above companies can be easily searched on Wikipedia.
It is important for medical professionals and consumers to judge not only the product specifications themselves, but also the "sociality" of products and companies.
Nowadays, various information is overflowing, and companies and products are also overflowing. In order to protect the health of ourselves, families and patients, we need to identify the essence and select products.
Q.What does ORALPEACE Mean?
It is a coined word that combines oral and peace.
It is said that about 700 kinds of bacteria are always present in the oral cavity, and they maintain a balanced and healthy condition.
If this calm balance is disturbed and the total number of bacteria increases too much, you will end up in an unhealthy state and get sick.
Therefore, we named it "ORALPEACE" in the sense that "it maintains a peaceful state in the oral cavity with safe ingredients."
It also expresses peace of mind, family health and peace.
Q.Is the product made in Japan?
Yes, it is made in Japan.
Q.What is the major difference from past dentifrice/oral care products that promote safety in the world?
The major differences are:
"It contains the patented formulation "Neonisin-e®"."
"We are conducting research to respond to bacteria that cause oral problems with safe ingredients."
Safe to swallow, 100% naturally derived, only food ingredients, organically certified toothpaste, oral care products can be made without the need for basic research or patented technology at national universities or research institutes.
Regarding ORALPEACE, we think that it is almost the same as other safety-promoting oral care products unless "Neonisin-e®︎" is added.
Gels with similar shapes can be easily and inexpensively made at home if you purchase the materials at online shops.
[How to make a toothpaste gel]
In the case of "Toothpaste Gel", refer to the ingredients of your favorite product and refer to the ingredients of glycerin (moisturizer) and mint essential oil or orange essential oil (preferably organic certified) and thickener xanthan gum at online shops etc. If you purchase it and mix it at home, you can make a toothpaste gel with 100% food ingredients that are safe ingredients made only from food ingredients.
If you want sweetness for children, xylitol, which is an alternative sweetener for sugar, is also sold at online shops, so you can mix it.
Also, if you want to see if lactic acid bacteria (itself) actually has an effect or effect on the oral cavity and teeth, mix the yogurt supernatant (lactic acid bacteria fermentation extract/whey) or yogurt itself (live lactic acid bacteria) I think that is also good.
If the lactic acid bacteria contained in the product are alive, it is possible to make it by culturing and fermenting the bacteria from milk at the home in a yogurt maker.
(Products such as yogurt that are sold in refrigerated storage without preservatives and bactericides. Products that are distributed at room temperature will ferment and decay when lactic acid bacteria are alive. It is inactive because it is sterilized by mixing with a strong alkali, and the lactic acid bacteria have been killed and left behind.)
[How to make natural toothpaste (abrasive)]
In the case of "natural toothpaste", similarly, calcium carbonate, Ca carbonate (abrasive, limestone powder, white line powder on the playground, raw material for chalk), glycerin (moisturizer), and mint essential oil (with organic certification) Is preferred), and you can easily make natural toothpaste powder by purchasing it at an online shop or drug store and mixing it with water at home.
In addition, you can get your favorite plant extract, essential oil, xylitol, propolis, sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda, polishing action, strong alkali), salt (polishing action, preservative), other polishing agents, etc. at the online shop. It is an ingredient that is easy to obtain, so I think you can try mixing it.
You can purchase undiluted solutions of almost all of the above materials and various ingredients and extracts that have been appealed as key ingredients of cosmetics at online shops.
I think that it is a good opportunity to actually try on your own oral cavity and teeth and judge for yourself what kind of effect these ingredients can be expected and realized clinically in the oral cavity and teeth. ..
The above is not a patentable ingredient, so anyone can mix it to make a toothpaste gel or paste.
However, in order to respond to the needs of the new 21st century and to cope with bacteria causing troubles in the oral cavity in clinical settings of medical care and nursing care, a patent for lactic acid bacteria antibacterial peptide invented in joint research with Kyushu University etc. over 10 years The formulation "Neonisin-e®" (cleaning aid) is a research result/invention that plays a major clinical role that could not be realized with conventional ingredients of natural origin.
To experience the difference, use an interdental brush or floss to clean the spaces between your teeth with the oral piece in your mouth before bedtime, and use a tongue brush (a toothbrush may be used) to clean your tongue. After cleaning and rinsing again, we recommend that you spread a small amount over the entire mouth, teeth, interdental space, periodontium, and tongue.
The next day after carefully taking care of your mouth and resting, you will be able to experience the changes in bad breath and mouth refreshment when you wake up.
We believe that ORALPEACE has no new significance for humankind as a product unless it contains "Neonisin-e®".
Q.What are the major differences from past dentifrices and oral hygiene agents all over the world?
The major differences are as follows.
Regarding research on response to bacteria causing oral problems,
"Use of lactic acid bacterium antibacterial peptide "Neonisin-e®︎" instead of conventional synthetic bactericides and alcohols"
"The product is made only from food ingredients that are considered safe even if swallowed."
"Chemical synthetic ingredients such as synthetic bactericides and alcohol are not added to the product"
We are responding to the new world-wide medical and nursing care clinical needs and consumer needs, bacteria that cause oral problems.
"I want to use ingredients that are safe to swallow,"
"I would like to use a safe antibacterial agent that replaces conventional synthetic antibacterial agents, alcohol (ethanol), and highly concentrated plant antibacterial agents with side effects."
In order to respond to the aging of the world and the paradigm shift towards the consumer's safety and health consciousness, a century after the birth of toothpaste, the lactic acid bacterium antibacterial peptide ``Neonisin- e®” research.
ORALPEACE is a new product invented and developed in Japan in the 21st century for the following people.
Worried about problems in the oral cavity,
I'm careful about what I eat,
We are committed to family health and prevention,
Want to avoid daily oral intake of chemical ingredients,
I don't like additives or synthetic fungicides,
Elderly people and illnesses requiring nursing care who have difficulty gargle or spit and accidentally swallow the product,
And I do not want to destroy the natural environment with persistent chemical products.
And ORALPEACE is a product for people all over the world who really need ORALPEACE not only to pursue the superiority of the product but also to sympathize with the background of the brand and contribute to society through the business.
Q.What is "Neonisin-e®"?
A naturally derived oral care formulation invented in Japan.
For details, please see the "Neonisin®" website.
Q.Are unapproved ingredients used as food ingredients in ORALPEACE?
ORALPEACE has been developed with the aim of making it a product that can be used by infants, the elderly who need care, elderly people who are difficult to gargle and vomiting, fighting persons and people with disabilities.
Originally, we have spent a lot of time researching and developing foods that human beings have eaten since ancient times, and products that use only plant-derived food ingredients whose safety has been verified by insurance organizations around the world.
Therefore, we do not use chemically synthesized ingredients, petroleum-derived ingredients, or even plants that have no edible history.
Even if it is recognized as a raw material for food, it was developed with the policy of not adding chemical synthetic components or petroleum-derived components.
Regarding the antibacterial peptide (bacteriocin) that may be produced by the compounded lactic acid bacteria component, those that have not been approved as food or food additives after undergoing safety verification by the World Health Organization or the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare Is not used at all.
There are various kinds of "lactic acid bacteria" that you can eat.
Lactic acid bacteria taken from plaque in the mouth of people who cannot brush their teeth but have caries or periodontal disease, and lactic acid bacteria ingested from other people's mouth or excrement are unapproved substances as food. ..
The only ingredients used in ORALPEACE are those approved by WHO, GRAS certified in the United States, and approved by Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare as foods.
Regarding antibacterial peptides (bacteriocin), we also avoid blending non-approved food products.
Q.Do you use synthetic germicides derived from petroleum?
ORALPEACE is made from water and all-edible plant-derived food ingredients.
ORALPEACE is a product newly developed for elderly people requiring nursing care, fighting patients, infants, etc. who have difficulty in gargle and vomiting. It was created with a lot of effort and more than 10 years.
All ingredients, except water, are made from plant-derived food ingredients. It is made entirely of plant materials that are sustainable and environmentally friendly, rather than limited fossil materials such as petroleum.
Synthetic agents derived from petroleum such as cetylpyridinium chloride (also known as cetylpyridinium chloride/CPC), benzethonium chloride, chlorhexidine gluconate, IPMP (isopropylmethylphenol), and triclosan, which are chemically synthesized from light oil, etc., are not added.
The above are extremely powerful bactericides, and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare strictly limits the compounding percentage in products, and there are side effects to the action.
However, in practice, among the petroleum-based synthetic bactericides, it has been recognized in the world's research that a concentration of 0.1% or more is effective, but in one country, the concentration recognized in product formulations is 0.05% or less. As a product, it is difficult to expect actual clinical effects.
On the other hand, side effects such as taste disorders and black hair tongue may occur due to long-term use even at low concentrations where no effect can be expected, and there have been difficult problems with actual clinical use.
For details on the synthetic fungicides derived from petroleum, their effects, side effects, and their environmental impact, please do your own research on the Internet.
Q.I am thinking of using it for the thirst mouth of elderly parents and children, pets. Is alcohol (ethanol) included?
Alcohol (ethanol) is not added so that it can be used by infants, those who do not want to take alcohol, and those who are dry.
Alcohol has the effect of clearing the inside of the mouth and not spoiling the product, but it may cause damage to the oral mucous membranes, thirst in the mouth, and dry teeth in the oral cavity. There are side effects that can cause trouble.
Therefore, it is unblended in ORALPEACE.
If you like alcohol (ethanol), we would appreciate it if you could get a high-frequency alcohol product from a pharmacy or a liquor store and use it with ORALPEACE.
Q.Do you mix chlorine, chlorine dioxide (ClO2), sodium chlorite, sodium hypochlorite, chlorine gas, and bleach?
Do you mix bleaching agents such as chlorine, chlorine dioxide (CIO2), sodium chlorite, sodium hypochlorite, chlorine-based gas, etc.?
ORALPEACE does not contain bleach, chlorine, chlorine dioxide (CIO2), which is a deleterious substance used for disinfecting and disinfecting pools, sodium chlorite, sodium hypochlorite, chlorine-based gas, etc. ..
ORALPEACE has devoted a great deal of time to research and development aiming at products that can be used by elderly people, fighters and people with disabilities who require nursing care, which makes it difficult to gargle and spit.
Please investigate the effects, side effects, and effects on the human body of chlorine and chlorinated gases on the Internet by yourself.
Q.Is the ingredient used for ORALPEACE a plant material?
All components of ORALPEACE are made from plants (food) except water.
It is made entirely of plant materials that are sustainable and environmentally friendly, rather than limited fossil materials such as petroleum.
Also, ORAL PEACE is a product that you can put into your mouth.
Regarding the lactic acid bacteria used during the production of "Neonisin-e®",
Not "animal-derived fungus" that lives in "excretion" in the intestinal tract of "animal", which is found from human or animal feces, etc.
We use "Lactococcus lactis", which is a "plant" found in "Tofu" from Japan and a "plant-derived fungus" that lives in "food".
Q.Does ORALPEACE contain "lactic acid bacteria" itself?
ORALPEACE contains the bacteriocin preparation "Neonisin-e®︎" (cleaning aid), which is a highly purified lactic acid bacterium peptide produced by lactic acid bacteria.
Regarding the clinical effects of adding "lactic acid bacteria" itself to oral care products, we would like to ask you to visit the website of "Neonisin" for the past problems by research institutions around the world.
In addition, there is a big problem that "a product containing lactic acid bacteria" and the following ingredients "cannot be combined together".
"Antibacterial substances" and "preservatives" "alcohol (ethanol)" "synthetic germicide" "sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda/alkali)" etc.
Because, "antibacterial substances" such as lactic acid bacterium bacteriocin, "preservatives" such as paraben, phenoxyethanol, sodium benzoate, K sorbate, alcohol (ethanol), "synthetic germicides" and "sodium hydrogen carbonate (sodium bicarbonate/alkali)" )” is for killing the “lactic acid bacteria” mixed together.
Also, if you want to use oral care products that can be stored and used at room temperature instead of refrigerated storage like yogurt, it is necessary to sterilize because "lactic acid bacteria" will perish if they are alive.
Therefore, a product that contains both "lactic acid bacteria" and "antibacterial substances" is said to have "combined both components that evoke the effect."
Actually, "lactic acid bacteria" have been killed by "antibacterial substances" etc., and there was a problem that it became meaningless in use and clinical.
ORALPEACE contains "Neonisin-e®︎", which is a purified peptide produced by lactic acid bacteria, and does not contain "lactic acid bacteria" itself.
Q.What is the origin of the lactic acid bacteria used for ORALPEACE?
ORALPEACE does not contain lactic acid bacteria itself, but "Neonisin-e®︎" is produced from lactic acid bacteria.
The lactic acid bacteria used for the production are explained below.
Even if you say "lactic acid bacteria" that you can eat, their habitat and origin are various.
Even if you say "lactic acid bacteria" with a good image, it will be completely different depending on the bacterial species and strain.
There are also lactic acid bacteria derived from the ground, rivers, insects and animals, and humans. There are also lactic acid bacteria that live in the intestinal tract (feces) and excrement of animals, and in blister and sludge.
There are also lactic acid bacteria found in plaque accumulated in the mouth of people who cannot brush their teeth but have caries or periodontal disease, and lactic acid bacteria found in the feces and dirt of other people.
In fact, the strains of adult feces and dental plaque are often stronger than the bacteria of infants and children's feces and dental plaque, and the product contains bacteria isolated from adult human feces and dental plaque. The reality is that they are often used.
However, until now, in the practical application of lactic acid bacteria research by research institutes all over the world, yogurt, beverages and oral products produced by fermenting feces and plaque of other people have been consumer-oriented and are themselves, families, children and patients. There was a big problem that I didn't want to put it in your mouth.
Regarding the antibacterial peptide (bacteriocin) that may be mixed in the "fermented products" of the bacteria derived from feces and dental plaque, there is a possibility that the habitat of the bacteria may be effective against miscellaneous bacteria. Antibacterial peptides (bacteriocin) other than “A” are unapproved substances that have not been verified for safety by WHO, the world health organizations, or the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
The lactic acid bacterium "Lactococcus lactis" contained in ORALPEACE is a lactic acid bacterium discovered in "Tofu", a clean and safe food produced in Japan.
And for decades, a lactic acid bacterium that lives in plant-derived foods that mass-produces lactobacillus antibacterial peptide "Nisin A", which has been licensed all over the world. It is a research result.
The lactic acid bacteria used in ORALPEACE are clean and safe lactic acid bacteria found in foods derived from edible plants called tofu, so you can safely put them in your mouth.
For the type and origin of lactic acid bacteria that you put in your mouth, we recommend that you check the name of each bacterium on the Internet.
Q.Is "lactic acid bacteria derived from animals (people, livestock, etc.) (bacteria that live in the feces of people and animals) included?
Not used at all.
As mentioned above, this point is a major advantage of ORALPEACE in the world due to the background of long and deep research including the world's leading researchers in lactic acid bacteriocin research.
ORALPEACE is a product that you can put in your mouth.
Not "animal-derived fungus" that lives in "excretion" in the intestinal tract of "animal", which is found in the feces of humans and livestock
Regarding the lactic acid bacteria used during the production of "Neonisin-e®",
We use "Lactococcus lactis" which is a "plant" found in Japanese "tofu" and a "plant-derived fungus" that lives in "food".
For the type and origin of lactic acid bacteria that you put in your mouth, we recommend that you check the name of each bacterium on the Internet.
Q.What is the difference between "Neonisin-e®" and other "lactic acid bacterium culture/fermented extract" and "enzyme"?
The labeling of "Neonisin-e®︎" is "Lactic acid bacteria culture extract", "Plum fruit extract", and "Damask rose oil".
This is because "Neonisin-e®︎" is a mixture of the above ingredients.
Ordinary "lactic acid bacterium culture/fermented extract" is a liquid obtained by fermenting lactic acid bacteria, and in many cases, it is like the supernatant of yogurt. And many things such as water, impurities, and salt are turbid in the fermented liquid.
On the other hand, "Lactobacillus culture extract" used in "Neonisin-e®" is very different from other fermentation broths, and only the antibacterial peptide "Nisin A" produced by lactic acid bacterium from the fermentation broth fermented It will be isolated and highly purified by biotechnology.
It is "highly purified nisin A" as a highly pure lactic acid bacterium antimicrobial peptide liquid that can be extracted from a normal lactic acid bacterium fermentation liquor in an amount of only about 1/10, manufacturing costs and labor are more than 10 times.
Highly purified "Nisin A" has a 100 times or more difference in purity, degree of purification, stability and effect from the fermentation liquid of normal lactic acid bacteria.
The patented ingredient "Neonisin-e®︎", which has been researched and developed through industry-academia collaboration with Kyushu University, etc., has the same label name as other "lactic acid bacterium culture/fermentation extract" "enzyme" etc. However, the reality is that the dimensions are completely different.
Q.Is sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda/abrasive/alkali) mixed?
Sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda) is an alkaline substance that has the effect of floating dirt and destroying and decomposing fats and oils and proteins.
In addition, the particles are large and difficult to dissolve in water, which makes them useful as an abrasive for kitchens.
Toothpaste containing sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda, polishing agent, alkali) was born about 100 years ago and can be easily made with baking soda in the kitchen.
However, there are various problems that are not recommended for use in tooth brushing and oral care in the modern oral clinics around the world.
First of all, the point that "the teeth are scraped by the polishing action".
Sodium hydrogencarbonate (baking soda, abrasives, alkalis) is a substance that has a very strong polishing action, as it is also included in cleansers that remove stubborn dirt.
The American Dental Association (ADA) does not recommend sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) for the following reasons:
Particles of sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda) are said to be coarser and larger than any of the abrasive components of commercially available dentifrices, which is the same as brushing teeth with a file or cleanser.
After daily polishing, the enamel is scraped off every day, and symptoms of hypersensitivity will eventually occur, prone to tooth decay, pigments will easily remain on the scratches on the tooth surface and cause yellowing, and eventually dentin inside Is visible, and the teeth are gray, over white.
And the tooth that has been scraped will not return to the original, so be careful.
Next, it is "inducing excessive intake of salt".
Sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda, abrasives, alkalis) is composed of sodium compounds as well as salts.
The amount of sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda, abrasives, alkalis) that can be taken daily by healthy people is less than 5 grams.
If you accidentally swallow it with toothpaste or gargling with sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda, abrasives, alkalis), you will ingest too much salt. Also, salt will be absorbed from the mucous membranes of the oral cavity without swallowing.
In particular, caution is required for those with impaired kidney/cardiopulmonary function, those with salt or sodium restriction, those with high blood pressure, and those with restricted salt intake due to chronic illness.
Also, it is not good for healthy people to increase their salt intake. Excessive salt intake leads to symptoms of metabolic disorders such as swelling and alkalosis.
Secondly, "alkaline tilt in the mouth causes tartar to adhere".
The human body's oral cavity has the physiological function of keeping the same weak acidity as the skin, keeping the PH in the mouth constant, suppressing the action of causative bacteria, and promoting the remineralization action of teeth.
Humans' mouth is kept weakly acidic by saliva, but tartar is more likely to adhere to the mouth which is inclined to alkali.
Tartar is a plaque that is a collection of bacteria that is calcified by alkali and causes dental caries and periodontal disease.
There is also the expectation that "the neutralization of the mouth, which is inclined to be acidic by diet, may promote remineralization of teeth and prevent tooth decay", but in reality remineralization is performed by saliva minerals.
Caries do not occur because the inside of the mouth becomes acidic, but the teeth are melted by the acid produced by the dental caries that live in the mouth to decompose sugar.
Ordinary weak acidity in the oral cavity does not activate dental caries (it cannot be inactivated even by tilting it to alkaline), so there is no point in temporarily tilting the oral cavity to alkali. There was a clinical problem that the bacteria could not be eliminated (oral mucosa and skin tissues were damaged before that), but the risk of tartar was increased.
Finally, the point is that "strong stimulation with alkali damages the oral mucosa."
When treated with a strong alkali, it becomes the same as reduced bleach and strong alkaline ionized water, and strong alkali can sterilize general bacteria and inactivate viruses.
Strong alkalis are as good as disinfectants for medical equipment and kitchens, just like disinfectants such as chlorine and hypochlorous acid. However, there is a problem that it causes damage when used on the body of people who are composed of various bacteria.
Although strong alkali sterilizes bacteria, chemical damage destroys the proteins that make up the oral mucosa, damages the gum tissue and periodontal skin tissue, and damages the oral mucosa, deteriorating the oral condition.
When making skeletal specimens of animals because of their characteristics of destroying skin tissues and proteins, they are boiled with sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda).
Also, if you add baking soda to oil-dirty kitchen utensils, clogged ceramic filters, and parts of cars and motorcycles, the oil and protein will be decomposed and it will be very clean. Please try.
And regarding the effect data on bacteria and viruses, in experiments such as petri dishes, we can get data that reducing bleach and strong alkaline ion electrolyzed water can kill various bacteria and viruses.
However, in the actual oral clinic, the concentration cannot be maintained by being diluted with saliva (the skin damage is large if it is not diluted with saliva), and the reality is that the same clinical effect as the experimental data on petri dishes cannot be expected.
From the above, there was an oral clinical problem that strong alkali had more side effects than action and could not be used for babies and infants with weak oral mucosa, elderly people, fighters, and people who care about salt and are healthy.
Therefore, ORAL PEACE is a prescription that does not contain it.
However, if you like sodium bicarbonate (baking soda, abrasives, alkalis), baking soda for food is sold at supermarkets, so please use it with caution.
Q.Is no abrasive included?
Is no abrasive included?
ORALPEACE is made from only food ingredients that are safe to eat, and we do not mix non-food abrasives (compounds, stone powder, etc.).
Abrasives (compounds, stone powder, etc.) can be whitened by scraping the tooth surface, but they have the following side effects.
Enamel does not return to the original state if it is cut too much.
It becomes hypersensitive due to excessive shaving.
Accumulates on the periodontium.
We do not have the following abrasives in ORALPEACE.
Calcium carbonate (raw powder for drawing white lines on playground, raw material for chalk)
Sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda)
Mud (clay and montmorillonite)
Micro beads (plastic powder)
ORALPEACE can be used safely with only edible ingredients, and it is also suitable for whitening teeth by carefully brushing teeth for a certain period of time without damaging enamel and dentin, and for use with electric toothbrushes.
ORALPEACE can also be applied to the oral cavity as a moisturizing gel for the oral cavity.
Regarding "keeping teeth white", our research team recommends the following methods.
Instead of shaving away the enamel and dentin of your important teeth with an "abrasive" to make your teeth look white (which was the standard in the past), perform daily home maintenance by careful brushing.
To have a whitening treatment in a clinic once a year or once every few months.
We believe that it is a reasonable way to keep your beautiful white teeth, both effective and safe, just like removing stains on your skin.
Q.Why do we make our teeth hypersensitive?
The mechanism of hypersensitivity is mainly caused by shaving the "dentin" at the boundary between teeth and gums with toothpaste containing "abrasives (compound, stone powder, charcoal, etc.)".
The whitish part that covers the teeth as a whole is called "enamel", and the part that is slightly darker at the boundary between the teeth and the gingiva is called "dentin".
If you rub the "dentin" strongly with a toothbrush, the dentin is relatively soft, so it will be scraped earlier than the "enamel" and will look like a wave-cut rock.
In addition, there are small holes (dentin tubules) in the "dentin", from which the stimulus is directly transmitted to the nerves, so the cold ones are particularly soaked.
The gums and alveolar bone also go down due to periodontal disease. In addition, toothpaste containing "abrasives (compound, stone powder, charcoal, etc.)" will make you hypersensitive if you remove "dentin" and "enamel".
In other words, every day, we shave our precious teeth with toothpaste containing "abrasives (compound, stone powder, charcoal, etc.)" to make ourselves hypersensitive.
Also, if you use toothpaste containing "foaming agent (surfactant/soap)", you will be rushing to brush before the bubbles overflow from your mouth.
"Abrasives (compound, stone powder, charcoal, etc.)" will further scrape your teeth if you rush and polish strongly.
The key to daily beautiful tooth care is to gently polish with a toothbrush gel containing no abrasive and foaming agent and a good toothbrush with a light force.
Q.Is the synthetic surfactant/foaming agent “sodium lauryl sulfate” included?
Synthetic surfactants for decomposing oil and surfactants and foaming agents such as soap are not used in ORALPEACE.
This is because it is not necessary to clean the oil in the mouth and it is not food.
Please check the effects, side effects, and environmental effects of synthetic surfactants on the Internet yourself.
Q.Is the synthetic surfactant/foaming agent "lauryl glucoside" mixed?
"Lauryl glucoside", a nonionic surfactant, is a synthetic raw material that is often used in shampoos as an inexpensive synthetic surfactant.
Not used for ORALPEACE.
Q.Do you mix soap and foaming agents such as soap, potassium coconut oil fatty acid and potassium olive oil fatty acid?
For the same reason as the synthetic surfactants above, we have not added any to ORALPEACE.
Soap may be added because it gives a feeling of brushing the teeth due to foaming and can emulsify the water and oil components of the toothpaste.
However, soaps and foams that decompose oil are not required for cleaning the mouth, and soaps, coconut oil fatty acid K, olive fatty acid K, and other soaps and foaming agents are not included because they are not foods.
Brushing your teeth with soap is the same as brushing your teeth with solid soap at home. You can try.
Q.Do you mix "paraben"?
Synthetic preservatives such as methylparaben, butylparaben, propylparaben, also known as paraoxybenzoate, are not added at all.
In addition, we do not use other synthetic preservatives that are used in place of parabens in our oral pieces.
All ingredients of ORALPEACE are as shown on the package.
Please check the effects, side effects, and environmental effects of synthetic preservatives on the Internet yourself.
Q.Do you use "phenoxyethanol"?
Phenoxyethanol is a synthetic preservative/preservative that is increasingly being used as a substitute for consumers who do not like parabens.
It is chemically synthesized in the presence of an alkali metal hydroxide or alkali metal borohydride by hydroxyethylation of phenol (a colorless needle-shaped crystal made from coal tar, which is used for preserving and disinfecting).
In Japan and the European Union, the amount of phenoxyethanol is strictly limited for cosmetics for skin, and up to 1% can be added to the product.
However, it is a banned ingredient for use in food.
(Paraben is allowed to be used in food.)
Even for cosmetics for the skin, the inclusion of phenoxyethanol is prohibited by international organic product certification standards.
Therefore, phenoxyethanol is not added to ORALPEACE, which is an oral care product that can be taken orally and absorbed by the mucous membranes in infants and pregnant women.
Q.Does ORALPEACE contain "sodium benzoate"?
Please check the effects, side effects, and environmental effects of sodium benzoate on the Internet for yourself.
Q.Does ORALPEACE contain "potassium sorbate"?
Please check the effects, side effects, and environmental effects of potassium sorbate on the Internet yourself.
Q.Are carry-over ingredients (such as synthetic preservatives not shown) included in the product?
Carryover ingredients that are not included in the ingredients of overseas products, such as preservatives as impurities contained in the product, which are not stated in the labeling of all ingredients, are prevented from being mixed in under the strict production control system in Japan.
Unlike overseas, it does not contain formaldehyde, which is strictly prohibited in Japan.
Q.Is phosphorus/phosphate such as polyphosphoric acid or metaphosphoric acid mixed with ORALPEACE?
Not mixed at all.
As food additives, phosphates such as polyphosphoric acid, metaphosphoric acid, pyrophosphoric acid, etc. used for ham and salami binding reinforcing agents, emulsifiers, swelling agents, etc. have a bleaching effect and may be used for toothpaste products. There is.
However, ORALPEACE does not use phosphorus phosphate because it aims to make products that can be used by infants, those who are not good at chemically synthesized components, fighting illnesses and elderly people requiring nursing care.
Please check the effects, side effects, and environmental effects of phosphorus and phosphate on the Internet yourself.
Q.Do you use chemically synthesized flavors or fragrances such as “grape” or “strawberry”?
ORAL PEACE is all seasoned with natural plant essential oils.
For flavors such as “grape”, “strawberry”, “melon”, and “cola”, it is not possible to make them with natural essential oils and extracts, but they are chemically synthesized synthetic flavors (flavors).
Natural flavors and tastes are limited to the essential oils of plants such as "mint" and fruits such as "citrus".
ORALPEACE uses only mint and citrus essential oils for taste.
We do not mix chemical substances (synthetic fragrances or synthetic preservatives) that are labeled as "fragrance".
Q.Do you mix "titanium oxide"?
Many toothpaste products are white pastes because they contain many abrasives (compounds and stone powders) and foaming agents (soaps and surfactants).
However, in the case of a semi-transparent gel that does not turn white with a mild mixture of abrasives and foaming agents, if you add a component called "titanium oxide" as a coloring agent, the transparent one becomes a pure white paste.
"Titanium oxide" is made from minerals, but the World Health Organization points out that it is "carcinogenic".
Since January 2020, France has banned the production and sale of food products containing "titanium oxide".
ORALPEACE is a formulation that does not contain "titanium oxide" because it is made from only food ingredients that are safe to swallow.
Q.I would like to use it for infants. Do you use honey or propolis?
Since ORALPEACE aims to be a product that can be used with peace of mind even for infants, honey and propolis are not added.
In addition, there are some reports of antibacterial action such as Manuka honey, but there have been a number of issues with the use of honey and propolis as hygiene agents, which are expected to have antibacterial properties.
First of all, its antibacterial property is about 1/1,000 or less than that of lactic acid bacteria peptides, similar to that of essential oils and extracts of plants such as herbs.
In other words, it is difficult to take a large amount of honey propolis and carry it if you expect the same benefits that you can achieve even with a very small amount if you do not take 1,000 times as much, and you can take a high concentration of plant essential oils and extracts Is dangerous and expensive.
In addition, the main ingredients of honey are sugars called "glucose" and "fructose", which can cause caries as a side effect.
For these reasons, honey propolis is not added to ORALPEACE.
If you like honey propolis, please check your age and sugar intake, be careful of caries, and use it together with ORALPEACE.
Q.Do you mix ingredients derived from animals?
No animal-derived ingredients are used.
We do not use any ingredients derived from animals, ingredients produced from the placenta of humans or domestic animals such as cows, pigs, sheep and horses, ingredients produced from animal eggs, and ingredients produced by culturing animal cells.
Also, we are not conducting animal experiments.
Regarding product manufacturing, we aim to create products that do not sacrifice the lives of animals.
We do not use ingredients such as cultivated bacteria ingested from dental plaque, excrement or plaque of humans or animals, or animal-derived bacteriocin, which is not approved as food.
Q.Is "Hinokitiol" included?
The antibacterial activity of "Neonisin-e®" is about 1,000 times that of hinokitiol. In other words, the same effect can be obtained with an amount of 1/1000.
Hinokitiol is a repellent component created by cypresses (trees) in the hot and humid forests to resist insects, microorganisms and mold, and is used for preventing termites on pillars, preserving rice, and bath tubs that easily mold. I came.
However, in order to exert its effect on bacteria, it has to be concentrated to increase the concentration, and even if it is usually harmless, a high concentration poses a risk of malformation (teratogenicity) in rat experiments. There was a problem with its use on women.
In addition, in the case of high concentration, it has the strength of peeling the laminate tube, so it is not added to ORALPEACE.
If you like Hinokiol, we would appreciate it if you can get it at an essential oil shop and use it together with ORALPEACE.
Q.Is "tea catechin" mixed?
For the same reason as Hinokitiol, it is not added.
The antibacterial activity of "Neonaisin-e®" is about 3,000 times that of catechin. In other words, the same effect can be obtained with an amount of 1/3,000.
Tea has been consumed by humans since ancient times as a healthy food.
Normal concentration is good, but in order to exert an effect on bacteria, it has to be concentrated to increase the concentration, and at high concentration, the Canadian Health Organization announces a concern about liver function, It is important to know the correct volume without side effects.
If you get the wrong amount of good things, it becomes bad. Everything needs a proper amount.
Therefore, tea catechin is not added to oral pieces.
If you like tea catechin, we recommend that you take it from tea or beverage products.
Q.Do you mix various plant essential oils and herbal extracts?
First of all, as for plant extracts and essential oils, most of the raw materials in the world can be easily purchased at the essential oil shops on the Internet, so if you are expecting the effect of plant essential oils or herbal extracts on oral clinic, you can buy each raw material. We recommend that you try the effects of yourself.
ORALPEACE does not contain various plant essential oils or herbal extracts for antibacterial purposes.
The reason is as follows.
Plant essential oils and plant extracts have a sales promotion effect that makes consumers expect some effects when a large number of ingredients are added to products.
However, in reality, there was a problem that the expected clinical effects could not be obtained when added to oral care products.
For skin cosmetics, essential oils and plant extracts are predominantly used as fragrances, and vegetable oils are formulated as oils.
However, the problem is that oral care products that do not require fragrance or oil have almost no clinically expected effects.
It is necessary to increase the concentration in order to obtain some effect, but this will affect the taste and aroma, resulting in a taste that cannot be put into the mouth.
On the other hand, there was a problem that it would have a negative effect on safety if the amount of the formulation did not affect the taste.
Even though it is derived from plants, there are many ingredients that have evolved to avoid living organisms, such as hinokitiol and tea catechin, that have not been fully verified as safe substances for living organisms and the human body.
Since plant essential oils and plant/herb extracts have not been the foods that humans have always liked since ancient times, we do not use them in ORALPEACE.
If antibacterial properties are expected, the antibacterial activity of "Neonisin-e®" is several thousand times that of plant essential oils and plant extracts. In other words, the same effect can be obtained with a few thousandths.
ORALPEACE is blended with plum fruit extract for "Neonisin-e®", Damask rose essential oil, and mint essential oil for refreshing feeling.
It contains the minimum amount of plant essential oils and extracts that are essential for expecting clinical effects.
If you like vegetable essential oils and herbal extracts, please procure them from herbs and essential oil shops and use them together with ORALPEACE.
Q.Is dipotassium glycyrrhizinate (licorice extract) included?
A component called dipotassium glycyrrhizinate, which is obtained from licorice, is expected to suppress skin inflammation.
However, it is not used in ORALPEACE because it is not used for skin inflammation in clinical settings in dentistry and oral surgery.
Although it has been approved for addition to foods, licorice is not a food that humans have liked and loved since ancient times, so it is not used in ORALPEACE because it has a bad taste.
If you like dipotassium glycyrrhizinate (licorice extract), licorice extract is sold at online shops, so please use it together with ORALPEACE.
As a side effect, dipotassium glycyrrhizinate (licorice extract) has the function of accumulating salt in the body, so it is recommended to refrain from those with kidney disease. Please use it with caution.
Q.Do you mix resin such as pine or cedar with coniferous trees, sap or resin?
For the same reason as hinokitiol, tea catechin, and other plant extracts, it is not added.
Q.Do you contain plant-based antibacterial agents?
It is the same reason as hinokitiol, high-concentration catechin, mastic resin, and pine resin.
This is because there is a problem that side effects are greater than effects on humans and pets.
Since many plants do not become extinct by being eaten by insects and herbivores, they have developed and evolved toxicity and repellency against living organisms, and survived the severe survival race of this earth for millions of years.
Plants that are highly toxic cannot be eaten by humans, just as insects and herbivores cannot.
Plants such as vegetables and fruits that humans can eat are limited to a very small number of plants on earth, as there are very few plants that can be eaten in natural forests.
However, vegetables and fruits that are safe to eat as they are, as well as most of the plants in the garden or familiar to you, have the power to kill bacteria and organisms at home by boiling them to a high concentration.
In a simple example, fungi and viruses do not propagate in the essential oil of plant distillation.
In addition, it is possible to obtain data that a highly concentrated component of a plant extract that seems to be safe to eat will inactivate bacteria and viruses in experiments in petri dishes.
However, if a plant that seems safe as it is is made into a substance with a high concentration to kill bacteria and organisms, side effects on humans and pets that are organisms are large, and it is difficult to put it in the mouth. There was a big problem that it could not be tasted as an oral care product, the amount of the mixture that could be expected to be effective could not be put into the mouth, and the actual product was meaningless unlike the image.
From the above, there has been a worldwide demand for the development of natural preparations that exhibit bactericidal effects even at extremely low concentrations.
Q.Does it contain "fluorine"?
ORALPEACE is made with only food-approved ingredients that are safe to swallow, and because it is a product that can be used with peace of mind every day from newborns to the elderly and pets, no fluorine is added.
In Europe, many consumers do not like to take fluoride.
We thought that it is better not to add fluorine to the dentifrice, but to have a dental coat apply firmly at the dental clinic when a fluorine coat is needed to strengthen the teeth.
Fluorine is allowed to be added to commercial products up to 1500ppm in Japan, but the effect changes depending on the concentration in saliva.
If you think that fluoride is needed to strengthen the tooth structure, we recommend that you carefully apply the treatment by a dentist or dental hygienist at the dental clinic.
Q.Is "xylitol" (sweetener) included in human products?
Xylitol is a sweetener that replaces sugar and does not feed on dental caries, but there is a problem that diarrhea occurs if it is consumed too much. Therefore, we have decided not to add it to ORALPEACE.
If you like xylitol, we recommend taking it from gums.
Q.Is "xylitol" added to PET products?
Xylitol, an artificial sweetener, has the same sweetness as sugar and has less calories, and is used as a substitute for sugar.
However, it is an inevitable ingredient for dogs. Xylitol strongly stimulates insulin secretion, causing acute hypoglycemia.
Poisoning symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, and jaundice.
It should be noted that intake of 0.5 g or more per kg is said to cause necrosis of the liver, which is a dangerous poisoning that can lead to death.
For the effects of xylitol on dogs, side effects, and effects on the body, please consult the Internet or consult a veterinarian.
Q.Doctors say you should avoid salt. Do you include salt?
Does not include salt, sea salt, mineral salts, sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda).
Although salt is useful as a preservative for products, some people do not like to ingest salt directly from the oral mucosa.
ORALPEACE is researching and developing a preservation technology that does not rely on salt, alcohol (ethanol) or synthetic preservatives, even though it is 100% food material.
If you like salt, please use commercially available salt with ORALPEACE.
Q.Are you using chemical solvents such as PG (propylene glycol) and BG (butylene glycol)?
Q.Do you use petroleum-derived "tar-based colorants" such as yellow ◯ and blue ◯?
Q.Do you mix metals and heavy metals such as copper and silver?
Not mixed at all.
Q.Do you use genetically modified ingredients?
Q.I am pregnant. Do you use "bisphenol A" in the container?
Q.Do you use "synthetic polymers"?
Q.Is "radioactivity" included?
We regularly inspect radioactive materials. The factory is located in the southern part of Japan. Please use with confidence.
Q.Why Oralpeace products do not compound any synthetic bactericides, surfactants nor abrasives?
1. Oralcare product is something most of us use 365 days.
Oral mucosa is said to have 10 to 20 times more of percutaneous absorption than of skin. It is our policy that as a component of oral care product, we do not use/compound ingredients that are not safe to eat.
This is because the concept is that the oral pieces contain no food ingredients that are safe to eat.
As a component that is rubbed daily into the oral mucosa, which is said to have 10 to 20 times the percutaneous absorption of skin
Q.Why Oralpeace cleaning and moisturizing gel does not produce foam during brushing?
Because there’s no foaming agent used in Oralpeace.
Q.Does Oralpeace contain abrasives?
No abrasive is used as it can damage the enamel. By not containing abrasives in our product, you can easily apply the oral moisturizing gel directly into the oral cavity.
Q.Does Oralpeace use animals for experiment?
No, we Oralpeace do not and will not conduct animal testing.
It is also our policy not to use any ingredients/components which requires animal testing into Oralpeace products.
Q.What is the difference between the three colors of "Clean & Moisture" product?
Each color has different taste.
*Green ; A delicious, gentle and refreshing taste of natural mint and Japanese plum.
*Orange; A juicy orange and citrus taste that is also popular with children.
*Mint(Blue) ; A cool, refreshing mint taste.
All taste/flavors are natural and do not use any artificial flavoring. We hope you can choose your favorite taste!!

Q.What is the relationship between viruses and oral care?
According to the Kanagawa Dental Association, it has been reported that thorough brushing of teeth and oral care and keeping your mouth clean drastically reduced the incidence of influenza to 1/10.
If you do not clean your mouth, bacteria that cause oral problems will multiply and become plaque.
This plaque contains pneumococci and viruses, as well as bacteria that cause severe infections, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Serratia.
If you wear a mask and breathe through your mouth, your mouth will become thirsty and bacteria will grow.
The bacteria in the mouth excrete enzymes such as protease and neuraminidase as their metabolites. Proteases destroy proteins, and in a dirty state, viruses are more likely to enter from weak areas of the mucous membrane.
Antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu and Relenza do not act directly on the virus, but they suppress the action of proteases and neuraminidase and prevent the spread of infection by trapping the virus inside the cells.
If your mouth is sticky, dry, or left unclean, the amount of protease will increase, and you will be more likely to get a virus.
There are two routes of virus infection: “spray infection” and “contact infection”.
The important thing is to improve your own barrier and immunity, and at the same time, keep your mouth clean by doing nasal breathing to block invasion, a mask when going out, washing hands when you return, brushing teeth and oral care. It can be said that maintaining moisture is important.
During bedtime, saliva secretion is reduced and bacteria are likely to grow. It is important to brush your teeth and take care of your mouth before going to bed and keep your mouth moisturized while you go to bed.
Also, when you meet a person who coughs after meeting with many people, such as a place where people gather, in a train or bus, on the way back from work, school, kindergarten or nursery school, eating, talking with many people, New Year party etc. I would like to try to prevent it when I am thirsty because of the problem.
But there are also times when you can't gargle right away.
In such a case, using a spray or the like is also a way to easily clean and moisturize your mouth.
