The Science Of An Alkaline Mouthwash

To carefully craft a tooth whitening mouthwash that’s both natural and effective, we worked meticulously to formulate the perfect combination of ingredients.



The specific ingredients behind our line of products allow us to produce a natural tooth whitening mouthwash that elevates one’s oral health. The beauty behind the active ingredients in Alka-White Mint Natural Tooth Whitening Mouthwash lies in its ability to strengthen tooth enamel, freshen breath, reduce tooth sensitivity, and increase salivary pH to promote a healthy, alkaline oral environment.

Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of each active ingredient:

Active Ingredients Purpose
Sodium Bicarbonate

Anti-acid, Whitener, Tooth cleanser

Also known as baking soda, sodium bicarbonate works hard to fight against halitosis--bad breath--gum disease, and mouth sores, while promoting whiter teeth. For a healthier mouth, Sodium Bicarbonate effectively rebalances levels of acid and helps to inhibit the growth of plaque

Sodium Carbonate


Sodium Carbonate is an alkali with excellent pH levels. This alkali is what gives our products its effervescent effects. Sodium Carbonate also has anticaries that prevent the formation of malignant bacteria in one’s mouth. Caries, also known as cavities, cause the decaying of teeth.


May reduce risk of dental caries

Xylitol helps to keep a neutral pH level within the mouth, while protecting teeth from forms of tooth decay. Xylitol also fights against acid-causing bacteria and with time, can heal damaged enamel. In addition to its oral health benefits, Xylitol is also a natural sweetener.

Coconut Oil*

May reduce risk of plaque and tartar build up*

Coconut oil has a variety of wonderful benefits for the human body and oral health. Coconut oil can fight against harmful bacteria that can cause plaque, tooth decay, and gum disease.

Tea Tree Oil*


Like coconut oil, tea tree oil has numerous benefits for the human body and oral health. Tea tree oil acts as an antiseptic and can relieve tooth pain that’s associated with gum infections.

Peppermint Oil

Freshens breath

Peppermint oil helps to freshen breath while giving our mouthwash its delightful, minty flavor.


For more information on the amazing benefits these ingredients have on our oral health, we’ve listed a few research articles to take a look at. These articles discuss the positive effects Sodium Bicarbonate, Coconut Oil, Tea Tree Oil, and Peppermint Oil have on a variety of oral bacteria, germs, and diseases.

In addition to Alka-White Mint, we also offer customers a natural, tooth whitening mouthwash with turmeric added. Our Alka-White Turmeric Tooth Whitening Mouthwash works the same as the original mint flavor as it strengthens tooth enamel, freshens breath, and creates a healthy, alkaline oral environment.

With the turmeric and coconut oil combined, Alka-White Turmeric promotes antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects. However, instead of featuring tea tree and peppermint oil, this specific mouthwash features ginger root extract and turmeric. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits these two ingredients have on our oral health.

Active Ingredients Purpose
Sodium Bicarbonate Anti-acid, Whitener, Tooth cleanser
Sodium Carbonate Anti-caries
Xylitol May reduce risk of dental caries
Coconut Oil* May reduce risk of plaque and tartar build up*
Turmeric (curcumin extract)

Anti-oral Cancer, Anti-Gingivitis, Whitener*

Also known for its bright yellow/orange color and use in Asian and Indian cuisine, Turmeric provides a number of health benefits for both your body and your oral health. Turmeric acts as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer, and antimicrobial

Ginger Root Extract*

Stimulates production of saliva

Like turmeric, ginger root extract is used in a variety of Asian dishes while providing consumers with a number of health and weight loss benefits. As an ingredient in our natural mouthwash, ginger root extracts helps to increase saliva production and gives our mouthwash a delicious kick.


To learn more about the oral health benefits of turmeric, take a look at a few scientific studies that were conducted on the anticancer, anti-gingivitis, antimicrobial, and whitening effects of turmeric.

Alka-White Mouthwash Boasts Beneficial Results on the Oral Cavity

In a recent study to determine the effectiveness of Alka-White’s mouthwashes--Alka-White Mint and Alka-White Turmeric--the Holistic Dentists of Manhattan, New York ran a series of tests to see if these two products truly yield beneficial results on the oral cavity. During this study, two test groups were assigned--one for each of Alka-White’s products. With a total of 72 patients (41 with Alka-White Mint and 31 for Alka-White Turmeric), researchers asked each to rinse for 30 seconds with 100 milliliters of water and one full tablet of Alka-White’s dry mouthwash solution. They discovered that with just one, thirty-second rinse, both of these mouthwashes efficiently alkalized the oral cavity, whitened teeth, and freshened the breath of the patients within each test group. Additionally, researchers found that the Alka-White mouthwashes increased the pH of oral saliva by 1.26 and 1.5. In all, 92.7% of Alka-White Mint users and 93.5% of Alka-White Turmeric users claimed that they noticed their teeth were whiter after using the mouthwash, while 97.5% of Alka-White Mint and 96.8% of Alka-White Turmeric claimed that their breath was much fresher after use.

With these results, researchers are determined to conduct more studies to determine the long-term results this innovative mouthwash yields.
