In terms of taste, xylitol is very similar to household sugar and has virtually the same sweetness. When eaten, it brings about a cooling effect in the mouth as warmth is removed from its surroundings when it comes into contact with saliva. Various varieties of fruit and vegetables act as natural sources of xylitol, but it also occurs in larger quantities in birch bark. The caries-inhibiting effect of xylitol was discovered in the 1970s. It was proven to bring about a significant reduction in caries, also known as tooth decay or cavities. In addition, xylitol stimulates saliva production and promotes remineralisation of the substance of the teeth.
Silica gel or silicic acid occurs in nature as opal and in the cell walls of rock algae. In toothcare products, it is used as a mineral abrasive for gentle and thorough cleaning.
