Ever woke up in the morning and turned to your partner only to be met with a grimace when you say good morning?! Bad breath my friends, is what I’m talking about. CB12 is a mild mouthwash which neutralises substances and protects and prevents the causes of bad breath for 12 hours. Impressive huh?
Now I’ve always stayed away from mouthwashes especially the Listerine brand as it tends to burn my mouth. I’ve heard the same reaction from other people who use Listerine and no one likes a unpleasant experience when cleaning your teeth.
‘CB12 is a unique and patented formula that prevents the formation of volatile sulphur compounds (VSCs) that are responsible for unpleasant breath. This is achieved by a powerful combination of zinc acetate and chlorhexidine diacetate that is much more effective than either ingredient alone.
Zinc acetate is the most effective form of zinc in combatting VSCs. Volatile sulphur compounds are unpleasant and odorous compounds that develop as a result of bacteria in the mouth that break down food particles in-between the teeth, in the gum pockets and in the pits on the back of the tongue.
Chlorhexidine breaks down the shell of the sulphur molecules, allowing the zinc to more easily react to the sulphur. The unique ability of Chlohexidine to adhere to the lining of the mouth, tongue and teeth ensures that CB12 maintains a long-lasting effect.’
There’s a lot of science that’s been invested into creating this product and it’s great to read the science behind it rather than just reading the back of a bottle. They come in two flavours; original menthol/mint and a milder version which is what I got. You require just 10ml of liquid, which can be measured with the lid. After swirling it round for a minute, it’s a gargle and a spit to fresh breath. The mouthwash overall is very pleasant to use, doesn’t taste too clinical and most importantly doesn’t burn your mouth. I’m very much looking forward to using it alongside my toothpaste and I will be sure to keep you updated with the progress.
To purchase yourself a bottle of this mouthwash click here. It’s currently on sale in Tesco, Sainsburys, Boots and Amazon for around £14.99. It’s available with 250ml or 1000ml! I’ll also be taking the #CB12TESTDAYS which will hopefully prove that I can get fresh breath everyday using CB12.
