CB 12 Spray

CB12 Spray gives you instant fresh breath on the go. It is an alcohol-free product available in a 15 ml presentation that provides a fresh mint flavour within seconds. CB12 Spray contains the following neutralizing agents that operate by different mechanisms:

  • Chlorhexidine -this compound has a strong oxidative effect on amino acids, which are precursors of VSCs. It can split disulphide bonds, making them susceptible to zinc action.1
  • Zinc -after chlorhexidine breaks down VSCs, this metal ion binds to the sulphur compounds transforming them into insoluble and odour-free sulphides. It also inhibits further VSC formation.2,3

Several research studies have concluded that the synergic combination of zinc and chlorhexidine at low concentrations is effective against VSC formation that causes bad breath.2-5

Other ingredients in CB12 Spray- Aqua, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Aroma, Potassium Acesulfame, Citric Acid.

This product is recommended for daily use from the age of 12. Pump 1-2 sprays into your mouth 2-3 times daily to immediately enjoy freshness of breath.
