Silicic acid – the multi-tasking mineral 


It’s amazing what nature has to offer – silicic acid is a valuable mineral that occurs in both the human body as well as plants. In lavera products this precious mineral is a real multi-tasker that performs many important functions. As a natural polishing agent, the silicic cleaning agents in lavera toothpaste remove plaque and dirt from the teeth.

A little rubbing - but gently, please!

The task is clear: the tiny grains of cleaning agent found in toothpastes, also known as abrasives, are intended to ensure thorough plaque removal. The challenge of these tiny grains, however, is to provide the perfect degree of hardness for effective tooth cleaning. Cleaning particles must not be too hard, as they could damage the gums; but they must also not be too soft, because this would hinder their ability to thoroughly remove plaque and residues on the teeth.
