  • Publication number: 20180140520
    Abstract: An oral care kit comprising: i) an application device ii) first non-aqueous composition comprising a whitening component and a water insoluble and/or slightly soluble calcium source; and (iii) a second composition comprising a phosphate source in which the second composition is stored separately from the first composition prior to usage of the product; and in which the first and second compositions are adapted to be applied sequentially to the application device, the device then being placed on the surface 15 of the teeth for sustained contact.

  • Publication number: 20160136065
    Abstract: The invention provides an oral care product suitable for the remineralisation of teeth, the product comprising: (i) a first composition having a non-aqueous liquid continuous phase including a thickening agent, a humectant, and an agent for the remineralisation of teeth; the agent for the remineralisation of teeth being a mixture of a calcium source and a phosphate source which, when delivered to the teeth results in the in situ generation of hydroxyapatite on teeth; (ii) a second composition having an aqueous liquid continuous phase including a thickening agent and a humectant, the second composition comprising at least 30% by weight water (by weight based on the total weight of the second composition), and less than 2.

  • Patent number: 9301907
    Abstract: The invention provides an oral care composition suitable for delivering a temporary whitening effect to the surface of teeth, the composition comprising: a continuous phase comprising water or polyhydric alcohol or a mixture thereof; a tooth surface whitening agent which is dispersed in the continuous phase, and a deposition aid for the tooth surface whitening agent; characterized in that the tooth surface whitening agent is a pearlescent pigment in an amount of at least 0.1% by weight based on the total weight of the composition, the pearlescent pigment being formed by coating one or more metal oxide layers onto particles of an inorganic substrate.

  • Publication number: 20130129642
    Abstract: The invention provides an oral care composition suitable for delivering a temporary whitening effect to the surface of teeth, the composition comprising: a continuous phase comprising water or polyhydric alcohol or a mixture thereof; a tooth surface whitening agent which is dispersed in the continuous phase, and a deposition aid for the tooth surface whitening agent; characterised in that the tooth surface whitening agent is a lake dye formed by fixing a dye onto a particulate inorganic substrate, in which the dye used to form the lake dye is a triarylmethane dye having a blue to green-blue colour with a hue angle in the CIELAB system ranging from 180 to 270 degrees, and in which the amount of lake dye is at least 0.015% by total weight lake dye based on the total weight of the composition.
