Hydroxyapatite: Did NASA make a toothpaste?
Well, not exactly. But NASA has done a lot of research into some of the most important minerals in the human body.
One of these is ‘Hydroxyapatite’.
But what is it? And what does it do?
90% of your enamel consists of Hydroxyapatite
To put it simply, Hydroxyapatite is one of the most important minerals in your enamel.
That’s because 90% of enamel consists of Hydroxyapatite.
Because it's a key ingredient for healthy enamel, NASA decided it was essential for astronauts to be able to remineralise their enamel whilst in space.
After much research and development, NASA synthesised a form of Hydroxyapatite suitable for toothpaste.
Remineralises Enamel. Restores Gloss. Reduces Sensitivity.
3 Reasons to brush with Hydroxyapatite.
So, what does it mean to ‘remineralise’? Well, when you brush with Hydroxyapatite it binds to your teeth helping to fill tiny holes in your enamel.
This in turn strengthens the enamel, restores natural-looking gloss to white teeth, and reduces sensitivity.
Enamel, once eroded, can't grow back – so it’s incredibly important to look after the enamel you do have.
If it’s so important, why isn’t it in every toothpaste?
Hydroxyapatite is a truly next-gen ingredient and works incredibly well to reduce sensitivity and strengthen enamel.
Unfortunately, it’s not cheap. That means you won’t find it in many common supermarket toothpastes.
If you want to find out if your toothpaste contains Hydroxyapatite, just check the label.
And if you’re someone that struggles with sensitive teeth, or weakened enamel, we recommend brushing with a Hydroxyapatite toothpaste for a 6-8 weeks.
