What the experts say

Xylitol has been the subject of over 600 scientific studies which overwhelmingly demonstrate its ability to reduce plaque. We work closely with the world’s leading xylitol experts, dental health professionals and independent bodies to make sure everything we claim is backed up with scientific research.

“Xylitol may be the biggest advance in dentistry since fluoride.”
Dr Nigel Carter, Chief executive of the Oral Health Foundation.

Dental Health Professionals

We also work closely with a number of dentists and hygienists who recommend our products to their patients like Dr James Goolnik, Trustee of Heart Your Smile & principle dentist at Bow Lane Dental who says,

Research has demonstrated that the use of xylitol helps to repair enamel damage caused by acid erosion.  We recommend Peppersmith to help conveniently keep your teeth protected all day long while on the go.”

We’ve also teamed up with Oasis Dental Care to give you tips on taking better care of your teeth. You can read about them here.


While our mints & gum are dental health products, they are also still “food” so we have to abide by the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) rules on health claims. The good news is xylitol was one of the first ingredients they gave the green light to and we can officially make our claims.

If you want any more information about how our products are good for teeth you can read about xylitol here, check out our FAQs or if you want to get technical, there’s a section for Dental Health Professionals.
