Another Whitening Toothpaste? NO. IT'S DIFFERENT! :)


"Use your smile to change the world. Don't let the world change your smile."- Anonymous

Who doesn't want to have a confident smile? But how are you going to show the world your beautiful smile if you belong to the yellow teeth community? :)

I had braces for 6 years. Yes. 6 Y-E-A-R-S. That's dedication, right? #allforbeauty :) It was just last month that these brackets were removed. Since I don't have reasons to hide my teeth anymore, I need to make sure that my teeth look white and clean, especially I'm a tea lover. Hihi. :)

Just in time, a reader of my blog, who happens to be a distributor of a whitening toothpaste messaged me on Facebook. She offered me to try AP24®. :) I have already heard this "miracle" toothpaste before. I have friends who also posted their reviews about this product. Without hesitation, I said yes. :) I also asked my dentist's approval. I tried a whitening toothpaste before but I had to stop since I had problems while using it. She reviewed the ingredients of AP24® and nodded. It is a yes from her. Wow! :)


What is AP24®?


AP24® Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste is made by NU Skin. Upon research, NU Skin is an American multilevel marketing company which develops and sells personal care products and dietary supplements.

AP24® Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste brightens and whitens teeth while fighting plaque formation. Featuring a special formula that contains no harmful peroxides, AP-24® Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste also helps remove stains and aids in the prevention of cavities.

Usage:

Brush teeth thoroughly, preferably after each meal or at least twice a day, or as directed by a dentist or physician.

Children of 6 years and younger: Use a pea sized amount for supervised brushing to minimize swallowing. In case of intake of fluoride from other sources consult a dentist or doctor.

Ingredients:


Key Ingredients:

1. AP-24®—a patented plaque-fighting agent of medicalgrade dimethicone and surfactants. AP-24® is a long chain that can wrap around teeth and hold tightly to leave your mouth feeling slicker and fresher longer. 

2. Dicalcium phosphate—a mild abrasive that gently loosens and removes debris. 
3. Sodium monofluorophosphate—approved form of fluoride that can be used to fight cavities.

Other Ingredients:

Aqua, Hydrated Silica, Sorbitol, Aluminum Hydroxide, Glycerin,  Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, PEG-12, Sodium Monofluorophosphate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Dimethicone, Poloxamer 338, Poloxamer 407, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Sulfate, Sodium Saccharin, Sodium Oxide, Flavor, BHT, CI 77891, Limonene.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

QUESTION 1: What is the RDA of AP-24® Anti-Plaque Fluoride Toothpaste? 
ANSWER: RDA (Radioactive Dentin Abrasion) is the scale used to measure relative abrasivity of toothpastes. This scale starts at 0 and is open-ended. It’s generally agreed that any product that falls below 250 is considered safe for everyday use. The RDA value of AP-24® Anti-Plaque Fluoride Toothpaste is between 70 and 80, which is considered very mild. 

QUESTION 2: Which ingredient helps remove plaque from the teeth? ANSWER: The abrasive system used in this AP-24® toothpaste consists of dicalcium phosphate.

QUESTION 3: What makes Nu Skin’s whitening technology different? 
ANSWER: (1) No peroxides—they bleach teeth, but can weaken tooth enamel and irritate soft mouth tissues. Peroxides should only be used in a professional setting. (2) No harsh abrasives—they remove stains, but erode and scratch teeth.

QUESTION 4: Will AP-24® Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste make my teeth whiter than they are naturally? 
ANSWER: No. AP-24® Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste is not an oxidizing, bleaching agent. However, if your teeth are stained, darkened, or soiled from various foods, tobacco, or drinks, AP-24® Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste will quickly remove the stains and return your teeth to their light, natural color.

Clinicals:

A stain reduction test was performed to determine the percent increase in tooth brightness. The whitening effects were measured after brushing with toothpaste. AP-24® Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste resulted in a 63 percent increase in tooth brightness.

I will give NU Skin's AP24® Whitening Toothpaste an AWESOME PERFECT POGI POINTS OF 5/5 

Mr. Pogi says:

If I could give more Pogi Points, I will. :) Too much love for this product. :) 

AP24 as Android it may sound, gives hope. :) Who would believe that a whitening toothpaste can also be used by children? Well it only means that the ingredients are safe for all ages. ;)

I recommend this to people who can't afford professional teeth whitening yet. This is affordable and effective. But again, don't expect DRASTIC EFFECT. It takes time. :) This is also perfect for people who are coffee or tea lovers, or people who smoke. :)

Indeed, this is one of the most raved teeth whitening products. :)

I can now have a selfie perfect photos. :) SMILE! :)
