Over 30 years ago, an army doctor serving in India noticed that his patients’ dental health was very good, despite their bad diet.
He discovered that many used a ‘chewing stick’ to clean their teeth and gums. These small portions of twig came from the shrub Salvadora persica – known as the toothbrush tree – widespread throughout the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
At the time there were already scientific papers on Salvadora persica’s powerful antiseptic and beneficial properties, and more have been published since. On his return to the UK, the doctor decided to develop a toothpaste with the extract – and Sarakan was born!
THE NATURAL BENEFITS OF SARAKAN
Thanks to this powerful natural extract, Sarakan helps keep teeth and gums healthy without fluoride, sodium lauryl sulphate, sweeteners, artificial colours or animal-derived ingredients.
Sarakan dental care contains natural extract of Salvadora persica, also known as the toothbrush tree - renowned for its powerful antiseptic and beneficial properties.
Salvadora has in its natural state as twigs, been used for centuries as an effective way to help keep teeth and gums clean and healthy.
Sarakan’s unique formula uses this valuable natural extract to help clean, freshen and restore teeth’s natural colour and help keep gums healthy too.
Sarakan dental care is suitable for vegans, and children too.
