Our options for whitening and polishing toothpastes

We offer a range of natural, innovative mineral grades for the oral care market. Our minerals have been carefully engineered to provide natural whitening and gentle polishing in toothpastes. 

Kaolin and perlite are ideal natural whitening and gentle polishing agents for toothpaste, proven to not harm teeth. 

Our perlite-based product, ImerCare® PerlWhite 19, has been engineered to obtain optimized particle shape and size, making it an ideal and gentle polishing agent for boosting toothpaste. Toothpastes containing ImerCare PerlWhite 19 clean the surface of teeth without scratching, minimizing damage to enamel, dentin, root surfaces and gum tissue.

Where available, ImerCare® KaoBright / Kaopolite 1149 USP kaolin has been designed to give the best balance between cleaning performance and enamel abrasivity. Compared to commercial toothpaste that contains hydrous silica, toothpaste based on ImerCare KaoBright kaolin shows about half the abrasivity, which delivers long-term health and durability benefits for teeth, while still demonstrating excellent cleaning properties.

All our cosmetic products are natural, high-quality, chemically-inert, and offer good skin tolerance. They are not treated with chemicals during processing and they can be used in cosmetic products that comply with cosmetic directive regulation (EC) n° 1223/2009.

ImerCare PerlWhite 19 is Cosmos approved. Kaopolite 1149 USP kaolin is manufactured under cGMP manufacturing guidelines. Certificates of origin and additional documentation are available upon request
