The holiday season really is the most wonderful time of the year. With the coming months there will be a ton of holiday work parties, family get-togethers, decadent dinner celebrations with friends, and you can’t forget about the token stop underneath the mistletoe. Be sure that you come prepared with the best accessory of the season – a clean, healthy mouth. It is no surprise that brushing alone doesn’t get to all the places in your mouth that need to be clean, but for some reason so many people don’t use mouthwash. My family has been using LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash since forever!
I am not sure how many people are aware of this, but brushing alone actually misses 75 percent of your mouth. That’s why it’s essential to rinse with LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash in order to reach nearly 100 percent of your mouth and kill the germs that cause plaque, gingivitis and bad breath. I have even been known to carry a small bottle in my purse to rinse after going out for lunch or dinner. Bad breath is the worst and can attack at any time – haha! Clinical data shows that LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash reduces 52 percent more plaque and 21 percent more gingivitis than brushing and flossing alone. And honestly, that is really important to know when you consider that the majority of adult Americans develop gingivitis at some point in their lives – and don’t even know it.
So you may be wondering what the essentials are in the ingredients that make the magic happen. It’s the four essential oils that originally came from plant sources that have protected your mouth for more than 100 years. 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.
So keep LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash in mind this holiday season to keep your mouth healthy, holiday ready, and completely kissable. No other branded mouthwash has this unique, fixed combination formula that kills millions of germs on contact.
