TOOTHBRUSH TREE - ORAL HYGIENE AND DENTAL CARE INSPIRED BY NATURE
In Western Africa’s tropics, there is a tree called "Arak", which translates to "toothbrush tree.” Many have been using the Arak tree as a natural toothbrush for hundreds of years. The tree’s fibrous branches and  beneficial medicinal oral hygiene qualities have been mentioned in research produced by the World Health Organization.
When the Arak tree branch’s outer skin is peeled off and soaked in water, the hard branch fibers become  soft and elastic. Also, the branch fibers contain a milky substance that is similar to toothpaste in function. Therefore, “toothbrush branches” are used directly to clean teeth and freshen breath. Its refreshing  effect and unique fragrance, cause the toothbrush tree to be praised by African people as a magical gift of nature!
NATURAL PROTECTION, ORAL BACTERIA BALANCE, FRESH BREATH, CLEANSING POWER
We researched  the "toothbrush tree" by extracting the active ingredients on our cultivation base, and found that it was rich in saponin, fendol, menthol, calcium and many trace mineral elements. An arak-based toothpaste strengthens teeth enamel, maintains healthy teeth, refreshes breath, and improves overall immunity .
Saponin: Saponin is a very valuable antibacterial bioactive agent and can form a colloidal solution. Biologically active agents have strong immune regulation, antiviral, and antifungal. The solution forms a natural protective barrier and effectively protects the tooth enamel.
Fendols: Fendols have an antibacterial effect that benefit the body's circulatory and endocrine systems. Thus, the natural balance of oral bacteria health can be achieved .
Menthol: The menthol component has antipruritic, analgesic, antiseptic, cooling and anti-inflammatory effects.
Calcium: The calcium content is very rich. The transmucosal membrane directly supplies calcium to the teeth to support its strength.
“Toothbrush tree's” exceptional plant fiber characteristics are retained through technology.  We use advanced techniques to pulverize plant fibers at low temperature. Thus ensuring the original plant fibers retain its natural advantages. It also replaces artificial chemically synthesized friction agents in toothpaste production.
As a Natural plant combined with cutting edge science, the Arak Oral Products series, inspired by nature, has deepened our appreciation  and understanding in oral health . We look forward to sharing the benefits of this unique dental hygiene collection.
