It's the most wonderful time of the year! And for most of us, that means lots of get-togethers with friends, family, co-workers and classmates. And it also means food, and lots of it! I'm one of those people who cook with a lot of onions and garlic. I love flavorful food!
The downside of that, of course, is bad breath. A long time ago, I had a friend that took her toothbrush and travel toothpaste everywhere she went because she was really nervous about ever having bad breath. But when you consider that brushing your teeth actually misses 75% of your mouth, well, you can guess why that's not the best idea out there! Eventually she switched out her toothbrush for a travel sized container of LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash. Now that was a great idea because LISTERINE® Antiseptic reaches nearly 100% of your mouth and kills the germs that cause plaque, gingivitis and bad breath.
Research also shows that LISTERINE® Antiseptic also kills up to 52% more plaque and 21% more gingivitis than brushing and flossing alone. Why is that a big deal? Because the majority of American adults will develop gingivitis without even knowing it.
The four essential oils that have been protecting your mouth for more than a 100 years are still working together in the LISTERINE® formula:
Eucalyptol – Derived from trees usually found in Australia, this essential oil acts as both an antibacterial and anti-fungal agent.
Menthol – Identical to menthol found in natural corn mint, this essential oil is known for its germ killing properties.
Thymol – Identical to the thymol in natural thyme and ajowan herb, research continues to demonstrate this essential oil’s effectiveness against bacteria
Methyl Salicylate – Identical to the methyl salicylate in natural wintergreen, this essential oil is also often found in chewing gum due to its fresh flavoring properties.
No other branded mouthwash has this unique, fixed combination formula that kills millions of germs on contact, helping keep your mouth healthy and holiday party ready.
