  • Patent number: 11406577
    Abstract: Some embodiments described herein provide for a multi-component compositions and methods for its pharmaceutical and cosmetic use, comprising a combination of an aliphatic anionic compound, an oxidative compound, and a buffering system. Source of fluoride ion and other carriers are optional ingredients. The aliphatic anionic compound and the oxidative compound function together, in presence or absence of fluoride ion source, to protect the oxidative compounds from degradation prior to use and upon use, and to enhance the efficacy of the composition. In addition to achieving greater stability, combined effects of the aliphatic anionic compound, oxidative compound and source of fluoride ion achieve enhanced fluoride uptake, higher enamel protection by enhanced remineralization and reduced demineralization, increased plaque removal, reduced re-growth of plaque polymicrobial biofilm, greater amount of chlorite ion availability and effective oxidation of salivary biomolecules.
