Science & Ingredients
Everything you need to restore balance for healthy teeth and gums already exists in nature. In your mouth it is the flow of your saliva that we aim to enhance, stimulate and simulate - just like the flow of life force in a river needs to be protected and cherished.
Dr Hisham’s formulas harness the healing properties of New Zealand, Australian and European plant sourced ingredients, Organic oils & Vital Bio-minerals that are completely natural in effect, while eliminating all unnecessary harmful toxins.
When combined in high concentrations, these evidence based safe ingredients do what nothing else out there does. They work in synergy to help you heal, soothe, stay clean and feel fresh while whitening, re-mineralising and de-sensitising your teeth & protecting your oral skin.
:Dr Hisham’s Holistic Oral Care System works through actively creating a physiologically balanced oral environment that safely suppresses the bad bacteria in the ‘bug city’ of your mouth, while expressing the good biofilm bio-flora that protect you and your vital oral tissues (teeth, gums, soft skin mucosa, tongue & guts).
Dr. Hisham’s Holistic Oral Care System Ingredients
What makes our formulas unique is that they do not rely on just one special ingredient, but a Patent Pending synergistic concentrated combination of active, evidence proven ingredients that are natural in source and natural in effect.
You can search scientific databases like PUBMED anytime regarding every ingredient we use.
The intention of using only natural food-grade ingredients is that ALL our current and future products are totally safe for humans and safe to ingest. Virtually no other oral care products in the market today were designed this way.
Check our ingredient safety on trusted cosmetic safety databases like ewg.org
Ozonated Pure New Zealand Water: Sourced from deep aquifers near Katikati, where Avocado & Kiwi fruit orchards are at the centre of the world.
This fluoride-free pure water is then triple filtered to remove any chlorine or residue, then highly disinfected using freshly-generated Ozone in our facility.
We use Ozone to disinfect the water and working areas due to its high efficacy against all microbes and viruses while being environmentally friendly. Ozone leaves behind only water and oxygen as breakdown products.
Xylitol: A naturally sweet extract from the bark of Birchwood trees. We only use non-GMO, sustainable Birchwood Xylitol from Finland for its purity, quality, and validated efficacy.
Pure Finnish Xylitol’s powerful dental health benefits have been scientifically proven. researched and documented since the 60s. It is classified as food GRAS (Generally regarded as safe) by the FDA and other regulatory bodies around the world.
When used in High Concentrations, as in our range, the bad bacteria and fungus (Candida) consume the Xylitol, but are not able to digest it for energy or ferment it. It effectively blocks only the bad bacteria from breeding and kills them.
Xylitol is proven to also help enhance the remineralization of teeth, in the presence of Bicarbonate, Calcium & Phosphate.
Xylitol is effective as a standalone ingredient, however when combined with other active ingredients it becomes highly potent in preventing dental disease & revitalise health.
Totarol: Is a magical New Zealand native anti-microbial & anti-fungal extract milled from the heartwood of the Totara tree that is unique to New Zealand, set in Maori heritage.
Years of research prove its powerful antibacterial effects at very low concentrations, even against antibiotic resistant bacteria like MRSA
It was only recently discovered and evidenced because of research into the ancient Maori canoes and buildings from Totara being extremely resistant to rot. Totarol is renewable and generally extracted from salvaged Totara wood.
As the Totara is now a protected tree, no new trees are cut to extract the golden Totarol powder.
Organic Coconut oil: Used for centuries for its antimicrobial properties in Vedic oral care therapies and recently research has proven it effective at protecting, soothing and rejuvenating mucosa in the mouth and on the rest of human skin.
Lipids adhere to the lipids found in Bacterial cell walls. As the core carrier oil in our Serums, the organic coconut oil targets and sticks to bad bacteria and destroys them, while adhering to and nourishing human skin, gums and mucosa.
It carries the other oils deeper, as it penetrates through oral skin and forms a protective layer on teeth while the rest of the ingredients are being activated.
Organic Coconut Glycerin: We only use food grade Organic Coconut Glycerin. It is used as a homogeniser for many of the essential oils that do not dissolve in water. It is also an emollient which is an ingredient that helps balance moisture levels.
Brushing for 2 minutes with Coconut oil and Glycerin emulsifies them much faster than traditional 'oil pulling' for 20 minutes! We don't use any soaps/detergents or foaming agents in our Natural Oral Care System.
Tea Tree oil: Is an ancient antimicrobial extracted from the leaves of Melaleuca Alternifolia from Australia.
Manuka oil: Is a strong and safe Antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal extract derived from the New Zealand Manuka Tree.
Peppermint oil: We only use real natural peppermint oil, that freshens and aids in killing bacteria as well.
Calcium Glycerophosphate: A mineral of equal amounts of the Essential elements; phosphorous and calcium. It is a water soluble salt that is important for healthy bones and teeth. It dissolves in saliva and becomes part of teeth and bones, remineralizing them and protecting them from dissolving (erosion and decay).
Sodium Bicarbonate: Generally known as Baking Soda, it is used as a mild Non-abrasive cleaner and whitener.
Its main role in the human blood and saliva (that is emulated in our product formulation) is to increases the pH to a physiologically safe level of about 8, that then neutralises acids and buffers back body fluids to the balanced neutral pH of 7-7.4 .
It directly suppresses Mutans bacteria (and all other acid loving biofilm) growth to stop demineralization of teeth.
Potassium Citrate: A soluble potassium salt. It is an effective regulator of PH and proven tooth desensitiser. People with sensitive teeth find Potassium combined with Calcium and Phosphate highly effective in relieving their sensitivity.
Sodium phytate: A complex sodium salt Naturally found in plants. It inhibits the dissolution of Calcium Phosphate in tooth enamel preventing demineralization.
Zinc Citrate: A safe Zinc salt that is used to prevent tartar build up by inhibiting calcification of the biofilm and interferes with soft plaque adhesion ( reduces stickiness).
Zinc is also well known scientifically to inactivate bad breath bacteria.
Sodium Chlorite: A safe, proven drinking water salt additive that is highly antibacterial and anti-fungal at low concentrations while being a very potent VSC neutraliser (Volatile Sulphur Compounds that cause stink!), and oxidising agent.
By oxidising bad anaerobic bacteria that can cause gum disease and bad breath, as well removing the VSCs' stinking effect, it is a known fresh breath active agent that is safe if ingested.
Betaine: a root plant polysaccharide that is clinically proven effective against dry mouth by stimulating Salvia flow.
Sodium Anisate: A water soluble salt from Anise. The fungicidal activity of sodium anisate can be used in combination with other natural/organic preservation products (multifunctional ingredients with microbial activity) in cosmetic and personal care products with no further need for traditional toxic preservatives.
Ecocert listed and 100% natural.
Xanthan gum: A natural polysaccharide used as a food thickening agent.
Menthol Crystals: Fresh, fragrant and food-grade real menthol crystals mixed into our healing oils to give you that refreshing feeling of a clean mouth.
