  • Patent number: 10842722
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a pump-type toothpaste composition capable of being provided as contained in a pumping type container, and to a pump-type toothpaste composition improving the spreading property to a tooth as the toothpaste composition discharged to a toothbrush penetrates into the toothbrush and having an effect of ultimately delivering a medicinal ingredient continuously for a long time in the oral cavity. In addition, the present disclosure relates to a pump-type toothpaste composition with excellent commercial value, which can ensure discharge stability without hardening and accordingly, can be used in a pump-type container equipped with a dispenser pump (dip pump), which has a remarkable problem of hardening in the discharge port due to free movement of external air because of properties of the container, and thus can ensure even the convenient use.
