ImerCare Kaobright

ImerCare® Kaobright The natural alternative to abrasive silica

  • High polishing action
  • Whitening
  • Smooth enamel surface

ImerCare® KaoBright is a 100% natural kaolin specifically designed as an alternative to abrasive silica in standard toothpaste.
The unique particle shape of ImerCare® Kaobright, resulting from a specific process, confers a high polishing action, whitening effect and smooth enamel surface.
Using ImerCare® KaoBright contributes to long-term enamel retention and overall oral health.

Imercare kaobright
  • Fine particle size: penetrates gaps between teeth improving cleaning efficiency
  • Platy structure: protects the delicate surface of the enamel
  • 4.5 Mohs hardness: provides just the right level of polishing to remove asperities and contaminants

ImerCare® KaoBright is microbiologically controlled by heat treatment and COSMOS approved. Due to its inertness, it is compatible with other toothpaste ingredients, particularly with therapeutic agents such as fluoride.

The performance of ImerCare® KaoBright has been demonstrated by the Oral Health Research Institute at Indiana University, USA. The Relative Dentin Abrasion (RDA), the Pellicle Cleaning Ratio (PCR) and the Cleaning Efficiency Index (CEI) were measured by representative in vitro tests. Details of results and full test method available upon request.
