Blanx Whitening ToothPaste – Is It Any Good
Blanx whitening toothpaste has had a great deal of media attention recently, one article it appeared in was a review of popular teeth whitening products in the Daily Mail.
What Is Blanx
Blanx is a unique teeth whitening toothpaste in that it doesn’t use the more common ingredients found in many whitening products, instead it uses Arctic Lichen as its main component. This was discovered by accident during research carried out in the Arctic by US Scientists. They noticed that the native people all chewed or rubbed their teeth with the lichen, and that they all had healthy, clean teeth.
The lichen was brough back to the States for further research and after trials, the effective component of the lichen was identified, isolated and is now used in Blanx.
Blanx Is Currently The Only Product To Use Arctic Lichen.
The manufacturers tell us that the Lichen is good at removing bacteria and the stains that adhere to the enamel causing food related discolouration. Being non abrasive, it gives a good and deep cleanse to the teeth without harming the enamel
Can Blanx Whiten Your Teeth
There is no doubting Blanx’ qualities as an effective toothpaste, however when looking at it from the point of actual teeth whitening, it does seem to fall short of the mark.
The Journalist responsible for the Daily Mail Article agreed, giving Blanx a poor 1/10 for its ability to whiten teeth
Would You Recommend Blanx
As a good general toothpaste – absolutely!! But as an actual teeth whitener; we do feel that there are better products out there, and at a similar price.
Where To Buy Blanx
Blanx costs from between £7.85 and £11.00 can be bought from most Boots stores in the high street, or for convenience from their online store by clicking HERE
