The active ingredient in both Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste and Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste Plus is 20% artificial enamel. The use of hydroxyapatite in Bioniq® Toothpastes has a positive effect on the health of the teeth and gums. These effects include the formation of a biomimetic protective film around the teeth and an increase in tooth resilience.
In addition to the active ingredient hydroxyapatite, Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste Plus contains two further active ingredients that work to protect against gum problems: the natural antimicrobial active substance lactoferrin and the proven biologically active substance hyaluronic acid.
Lactoferrin is a protein which is naturally present in human saliva and in other body fluids. Harmful bacteria, that that can lead to problems with the teeth and gums, need iron to survive. Lactoferrin has a natural antimicrobial action that removes iron and thus counteracts the development of many microorganisms.
Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide of natural origin. It is frequently used in cosmetics and helps to maintain healthy, moist gums.
Together, the active ingredients lactoferrin and hyaluronic acid in Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste Plus actively promote gum health.
The lactoferrin used in Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste Plus is a natural anti-microbial active ingredient obtained from dairy milk. Consequently, the toothpaste is not suitable for vegans. If you're looking for a vegan toothpaste, then we recommend the classic Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste.
Animal testing has not been used in the development of our products. A general ban on the use of animal testing for cosmetics has been enacted by law (Cosmetics Ordinance and EU Cosmetics Directive) for a number of years now.
As all Bioniq® products are based on the principle of biomimetics, we never use harmful or questionable ingredients. Consequently, Bioniq® Repair-Toothpaste Plus contains zero microplastics or nanoplastics. Our toothpastes do not contain tiny plastic beads made of polyethylene, otherwise known as microbeads, as abrasive particles. We only use mineral-based abrasives (silica and hydrated silica).
All toothpastes from Bioniq® have a gentle formulation. This means they can also be used if a patient has implants and in the case of fixed or removable dentures. In addition to the main active ingredient hydroxyapatite, Bioniq® toothpastes also contain cleaning substances and mild surfactants. Gentle abrasive particles are also used to avoid damaging implants, crowns or fillings.
We recommend use for children aged 6 and over.
