Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide

By far the greatest advancement in halitosis management has been the formulation of mouthrinses and toothpastes that are effective against sulphur compounds. Unlike conventional products, the Durafresh System actually destroys the sulphur compounds at the molecular level. Thats right, destroy, NOT cover up.

CIO2, otherwise known as Chlorine Dioxide has been used in water purification for over fifty years and has been certified safe by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). CIO2 in mouthrinses,toothpastes, and gels are totally safe for use in the mouth and solves many of the problems inherent in competitive mouthrinses, toothpastes and gels.

What is Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide?

Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) is an oxidizing agent. Its unique oxidation process results in several beneficial actions such as destroying micro-organisms and eliminating odors.

What is the history of ClO2?

ClO2 was originally discovered in the late 19th century. The first known commercial process for preparing chlorine dioxide gas was developed in the 1930's, and its use as a bleaching agent expanded rapidly in the industrial sector. In 1941 the oxidizing power of chlorine dioxide was first used for taste and odor control in a water treatment plant in Niagara Falls, New York. The successful use of ClO2 as a water disinfecting agent in New York led to the rapid expansion of its use for this purpose. ClO2 is now widely used in water treatment, primarily for taste and odor control.

What are the benefits of ClO2 in Durafresh?

Oxidizes single-cell organisms: bacteria, germs, viruses, fungi, spores, yeast, mold, and mildew.

  • Eliminates all odors. ClO2 doesn't merely cover odors; it oxidizes the bonds in sulfur compounds that cause halitosis, destroying the cause of bad breath and odors at the molecular level.
  • Safe for children. Used as recommended, it is non-toxic to human and animal tissue.
  • Non-Carcinogenic, does not cause cancer.
  • Non-Mutagenic; organisms can't mutate to destruction.
  • Non-Allergenic; no allergic reactions recorded.
  • Biodegradable.
  • US EPA registered and recommended.
