Studies indicate that, when topically applied, panthenol penetrates the skin and is converted into pantothenic acid, a B complex vitamin. Such action could possibly influence the skin’s natural resources of pantothenic acid. It imparts a non-irritant, nonsensitising, moisturising, and conditioning feel and promotes normal keratinization and wound healing. Panthenol protects the skin against sunburn, provides relief for existing sunburn and enhances the natural tanning process. Its humectant character enables panthenol to hold water in the product or attract water from the environment, resulting in a moisturising effect. As a skin softener, it provides suppleness, and claims are that it also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Considered a noncomedogenic raw material.

Cocamide DEA Although derived from coconut oil, this thickener and a foaming agent has been suspected of containing nitrosomines. Although most evidence suggested this is a safe and efficient material to use in the wash of products, we don’t use this in our Natural or Organic range.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE HAVING A TEETH WHITENING TREATMENT?

When it comes to tooth-bleaching, you've got two options: in-chair teeth whitening, or a take-home treatment. So what’s the difference and what do I need to know before getting my teeth whitened?

Both teeth whitening options generally use peroxide-based whitening gels however there are non-peroxide options available however the best results come from peroxide-based treatments.


HOW LONG DO I LEAVE WHITENING GEL ON MY TEETH?

Many people believe, the longer you keep a stronger solution on your teeth, the whiter your teeth become. However, this is not the case. Peroxide gel peeks after being applied for 20 minutes and there is little or no benefit after this. Keeping the gel on longer will dehydrate the tooth and increase sensitivity to the teeth and gums. To increase the results it is best to remove the gel completely and repeat the application. Using stronger peroxide or leaving the gel on for long periods will not give better results it will only cause more pain and sensitivity with a risk of blisters in the mouth. 

There are pros and cons to each option, but before you try home bleaching kits, talk to your dentist about the condition of your teeth and gums and ensure you have no dental work required before doing any whitening treatment. Not everyone will see good results as your teeth will only lighten to their original colour. Some people have naturally yellower teeth than others. There are also conditions like fluorosis and intrinsic stains which will not benefit from a whitening treatment no matter who does it of what teeth whitening products are used. Whitening will not lighten porcelain veneers, fillings or crowns.
 

WHAT RESULTS CAN MY CLIENTS EXPECT FROM AND IN-CHAIR TREATMENT?

Results will be reduced if the client uses any home whitening products or has had an in-chair treatment in the past 2 years. Most clients are thrilled with their results but some have unrealistic expectations. Teeth whitening will not produce paper while results like seen in the movies this is a result of having the surface of the teeth replaced with porcelain veneers. Tooth bleaching will remove stains from the surface of the teeth and return them to the colour they were originally grown.

When done in-chair the client can get maximum results in less than 1 hour. The whitening solution is activated by an accelerator lamp which can get your teeth as white as they will go by whitening in a single visit. So what does this mean? How white will your teeth go? Your teeth will whiten to the colour they were originally prior to staining by diet and lifestyle. Teeth whitening removes stains from the surface of the teeth, it doesn't whiten enamel no matter who does it.
