AloeDent Aloe Vera Mouthwash

January 18, 2009

A minty fresh, alcohol free, saccharin free mouthwash alternative made from aloe vera.

“Using 100% aloe vera and pure essential oils, AloeDent mouthwash provides a natural, soothing antibacterial action plus minty fresh breath. The herbs and vitamins combine to promote healthy gums and teeth”.

  • Alcohol free
  • Saccharin free
  • Suitable for Vegetarians & Vegans
How does it work?
  • Aloe Vera – soothing action
  • Vitamin K – for strong healthy gums
  • Tea Tree Oil – for healthy gums
  • Horse Chestnut – for healthy gums (Soothing)
  • Indian Pennywort – for healthy gums (Astringent)
  • Grapefruit Seed Extract – natural Ingredient

I bought this mouthwash because I was so pleased with AloeDent’s aloe vera toothpaste. It had a strong but not unpleasant taste of tea tree. I found it a bit strong for my mouth as it made the inside of my cheeks burn a little (I should point out here that I find lots of mouthwashes too strong). I was still able to use it but not keep it in my mouth for as long as I normally would. I’ve looked around for a sensitive AloeDent mouthwash but have been unable to find one.

A bonus to the strong flavour was that my mouth felt fresh and clean for a long time after I’d used it. Brands like Listerine and Colgate also taste much sweeter in comparison to this one – both use sodium saccharin to sweeten the product. So this would be a good product to buy if you are looking for something that tastes a bit more natural.

Summary

  • Pros: Chemical free, tastes natural
  • Cons: Strong if you have a sensitive mouth
