Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening & polishing ImerCare® kaolin and perlite are an excellent, 100% natural and gentle whitening and polishing agents for toothpaste

ImerCare® kaolin and perlite are excellent, 100% natural, gentle whitening and polishing agents for toothpastes.

By carefully engineering particle shape and size, we can obtain a gentle, mechanical polishing effect that whitens and cleans the surface of the teeth without scratching, which minimizes damage to enamel, dentin, root surfaces, and gum tissue. Formulations can be designed to use 100% of kaolin or tailored with adding perlite as a booster for gentle toothpaste formulation.

We recommend our ImerCare® KaoBright and ImerCare® PerlWhite 19 products for polishing and whitening toothpaste.
