Description

BACKGROUND

Oral inflammation and the bacteria that causes it are the enemy of good and stable oral health. Preventing oral inflammation saves a person from not only pain and discomfort but also expense and trouble of doctor visits and treatments. Coconut oil has been used in oral health practices to aid in removal of bacteria from the mouth. The use of coconut oil has been proven effective in this line of use, and therefore, has been incorporated into oral health practices. In addition, the use of coconut oil helps people maintain good oral and dental health without using fluoride.

It is thus desirous to have oral care products that uses coconut oil in order to effectively remove the bacterial that causes oral inflammation.

SUMMARY

The structure, overall operation and technical characteristics of the present invention will become apparent with the detailed description of preferred embodiments and the illustration of the related drawings as follows.

This invention is embodied in formulations for oral care products including a toothpaste and a mouth rinse that incorporate coconut oil and its helpful properties and methods for making such products. The high content of coconut oil in these products distinguishes them from the prior art and accentuates the useful properties of the products.

One object of this invention is to provide formulations for oral care products that accentuate the useful properties of coconut oil in removing the bacteria that cause oral inflammation.

Another object of this invention is to provide methods for making such oral care products.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE FIGURES

FIG. 1 is a table showing a preferred formulation of a mouth rinse having coconut oil.

FIG. 2 is a table showing a preferred formulation of a toothpaste having coconut oil.

DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS

FIG. 1 shows the details of a preferred formulation of the coconut alcohol free mouth rinse. The preferred mouth rinse is prepared in 6 separate phases and then all 6 phases are mixed together in order. Phase A contains 40.375% Alkaline Water and 12.626% Pure Coconut Flavor Oil Extract. Phase B contains 12.178% Alkaline Water and 0.022% Sodium Lauryl Sarcosinate. Phase C contains 0.7% Zinc Chloride and 10% 30% Xylitol Solution. Phase D contains 10% Glycerin and 4% Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice. Phase E contains 0.099% of Sodium Benzoate. Phase F contains 9.7% De-ionized Water and 0.3% Natural Mint Flavor Extract.

While this is the preferred embodiment of the mouth rinse mixture, the percentages of ingredients can be varied. In particular, the coconut oil content of the mixture is in the range of 20%-80%, but most preferably 40%-60%. Phases E and F may be omitted.

The preferred instructions for mixing the mouth rinse comprise first, pre-mixing a 30% Xylitol Solution. Second, Phase A, Phase B, Phase C, Phase D, and Phase F are each mixed separately. They are mixed until the solution is clear. Finally, Phases A, B, C, D, E, and F are combined in order. Mix at slow speed until homogeneous. The Xylitol solution, mint flavor, and coconut flavor can be adjusted to taste.

FIG. 2 shows the details of a preferred formulation of the coconut oil toothpaste. The toothpaste contains 35.5% Alkaline Water, 27.75% Coconut Oil, 15.4% Hydrated Sylica Sident 9, 2.8% Hydrated Silica Sident 22s, 10.5% Glycerin, 4% Xylitol, 1.4% Irish Moss, 0.7% Sodium Coco Sulphate, 0.7% Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, 0.65% Titanium Dioxide, and 0.6% Flavor.

While this is the preferred embodiment of the toothpaste mixture, the percentages of ingredients can be varied. In particular, the coconut oil content of the mixture is in the range of 20%-80%, but most preferably 40%-60%.

The preferred instructions for mixing the toothpaste comprise, first, to a clean sanitized vessel with sweep agitation and homogenization add Water, Sodium Coco Sulphate, Xylitol, Glycerin and Titanium Dioxide. Second, mix 5 minutes between ingredient additions under sweeps (16±2 RPM). Third, once all ingredients have been added at 16±2 RPM, continue mixing for 30 minutes under vacuum.

Next, in a separate vessel blend the Irish Moss and Silica. Use ⅓ of Sident 9 and ⅓ of Irish Moss and mix by hand. Repeat 2 more times in the same container, until all Sident 9 and Irish Moss are mixed. Add this first ⅓ of the pre-mix to the main vessel with homogenizer ON under vacuum at 16±2 RPM. Repeat 2 more times until all of the pre-mix has been added. Mix for 10 more minutes. Add Sident 22s to the main vessel and continue mixing under vacuum.

Once the main vessel is uniformly mixed, add the Aloe Juice and the Flavor. Continue to mix (16±2 RPM) under vacuum with sweeps for 30 minutes. Once everything is homogenous and looking like finished toothpaste, add Coconut Oil at 16±2 RPM with NO Homogenizer under vacuum. QC to analyze and taste. Package to portable container for filling.

Additionally, a preferred embodiment of the toothpaste with at least 40% of natural coconut oil is shown to have a strong antimicrobial effect, as well as satisfactory whitening and breath freshening effects. A clinical study of this preferred embodiment shows that the embodiment killed 99% of all microorganisms tested. In contrast, the placebo and the control toothpaste (the Crest™ anti-cavity toothpaste) did not show antimicrobial activity against any of the 23 tested microorganisms. Furthermore, this embodiment was the only formulation in the study that had activity against Grain-negative bacteria (Pseudomonas aeruginosa) which is a critical bacterial species that contributes to periodontal disease. Therefore, the preferred toothpaste can be used to effectively prevent oral inflammation caused by bacteria.

The aforementioned embodiments are preferably used 2 times daily for maximum benefits. For the preferred toothpastes, it is recommended that a user uses them with a soft bristle toothbrush and brush at least one minute. For the preferred mouth rinse, it is recommended that a user swishes vigorously 10 ml between teeth for at least one minute and then spits out.

While the invention has been described by means of specific embodiments, numerous modifications and variations could be made thereto by those ordinary skilled in the art without departing from the scope and spirit disclosed herein.
